    The same could be said for the wall (with regards to stopping everyone).

    Wrong. My judgement of trump is not clouded by anything. You and I both know you're being hypocritical in giving him the pass here.

    The wall won't work. We already know that. The republican appeals to common sense is a logical fallacy.

    Then you're just ignorant of how it works. Read up on how effective E-verify is and get back to me.

    Wrong. I am not convinced the wall will work. No argument made has been fallacy free that supports it. There is no evidence it is necessary or would work.

    My judgment of him is not clouded by hatred.

    E-Verify has an error rate of what, 8-10%? It isn't my problem who is having problems. They should figure it out or be fined and jailed for undermining our markets.

    I'd also posit that, on a hunch, most employers know, they just want the cheap labor. You know as well as I do that's more likely than them being unable to verify.

    That's because the wall isn't the complete solution. It must be combined with other technology to make it work. Even then, it's not leak proof.

    Would you rather just have the status quo?

    The hypocrisy uncovered by this immigration nonsense is astounding. Trump up on his bully pulpit saying what xenophobes want to hear on Monday, and then on Tuesday it turns out that he is taking advantage of undocumented workers. He shuts down the government over a wall, and behind the scenes hires undocumented workers. Lordy, Lordy.

    I wonder which wall will be remember longer in history--Trump's Wall or the Berlin Wall?

    Yep, some employers do make cheap, illegal employees part of their business model. Others however are in a tight labor market and rely on E-Verify and documents presented to get someone hired. Most of these employees are making the same money as legal citizens.
