The idea of a fence across the southern border is at best just a silly fantasy that can't be done.

That, or you know, punishing those that employee illegals.
That'd close a huge gap, and address motivators, rather than patching a hole.
Id rather take the carrot away drawing people, than resort to sticks.

There's no need to do something as complicated as building a fence. All you have to do is send a message to their President, and have their President broadcast the message on their TV, over and over, that you are not allowed to come over here illegal. If they do, then you will shoot them.
The fact is what they're doing now is an act of war, maybe not knowingly, which is why you have to make sure that they understand it. Do it now before they take over Congress, at which point, they will just veto every law restricting immigration.
And all these comments about needing illegal workers because they're willing to work low wages are as shorted-sighted as having kids so that you can get more welfare.
Let's take America back for Americans
But yeah, using the rhetoric ' this country is for Americans' or what have you, actually hurts immigration reform.
Most immigrants don't really seem to want to be American, they want to move here and bring the old country with them. Even more so with illegals, they have no respect for us at all.
By end it I don't just mean the reform, also would like to see all immigration frozen.
And if the illegals weren't in this country doing it, then the unemployed Americans would have to be out there doing it ... earning a paycheck.
Like Americans are willing to go out and do hard labor
The influx of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has grown so large that it now requires its own transportation system: government buses that spend each night idling on a Texas roadside, awaiting the latest arrivals.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson dodged pointed questions Sunday about whether the tens of thousands of Central American children who have recently entered the U.S. illegally will be deported or allowed to stay.
“The more likely figure is 18-20 million and rising daily,” Zack Taylor, chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, Inc., said in an open letter dated Sunday.
Monday on Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show," Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said President Barack Obama has been encouraging the current flood of illegal immigrant woman and children with his executive actions in an attempt to "turn Texas Blue" and potentially 'turn America blue."
Gohmert, vice chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, explained, "In the end they have said they want to turn Texas blue and they want to turn America blue. If you bring in hundreds of thousands or millions of people and give them the ability to vote" Gohmert continued "and tell them if you want to keep getting the benefits you have to go vote" adding "that drives people to vote and it would ensure republicans will never get elected again."
Once they have their Amnesty, they can vote, Am I Not Correct,,,,,?
