We can rise up to have our voices heard on any multitude of issues in great masses. But when it comes to Mexico, the border and the people we all stick our heads in the sand and begin flailing about like idiots. EVERYONE knows its not only impossible to Deport that many people, not to mention the cost of it. EVERYONE knows WE CAN seal the border. If we can put a man on the moon and rovers on Mars their is NO EXCUSE for a haphazard border. EVERYONE knows it cost us a fortune in entitlments and we lose the income tax revenue. Doubling the cost of having them here illegally. EVERYONE knows the politicians use them as pawns every election cycle. EVERYONE knows the steps are simple to fix the problem if we take the football away from the politicians. 1. Seal the border by whatever necessary and effective means it takes. 2. AFTER the border is sealed begin deportation of the real criminals and the ones with no family here. Simultaneously begin citizenship proceedings for those that willingly come forward who have been productive citizens with the condition that some civil rights (voting etc) will be phased in over a certain predetermined time after certain conditions are met (learn the constitution, English language etc) Levee a fine for illegal entry of whatever seems necessary. Again, why should we continue with doing nothing when there is so much to gain for everyone by finally solving the problem? Remove the political borders and fix the damn problem. I for one am tired of construction prices being suppressed because of competition from those that pay unfair wages to illegals. And I'm sure those receiving shit wages would love to be paid a fair wage. It's a win/win for everyone including our treasury. We are going to keep this up until one day it bites us in the ass much worse than it is now.
