We have to stop enabling corrupt politics.
We have to stop enslaving our neighbors to the south by offering a pressure release valve for them to escape the condition their country is in.
It is just lazy and convenient for the media to make this a Latino issue and all about people who hate Latinos and Mexicans when that really isn't a whole lot to do with it for a lot of people.
I'm not going to sit here outlining why I feel corrupt corporate and political policy has made this issue worse. Your going to have to think for yourself on that one.
By investing some of our tax dollars in empowering states to shut down business who take advantage of illegal labor, and by enabling states to empower border patrol and come up with solutions to their border problems.
being as how it's Corporate America that is the real controlling entity in America;
prosecute the corporations hiring them 50K per illegal and they will stop hiring them. If they stop hiring them and stop giving them incentives to come they stop coming.

That's it ATS. I've drawn my final conclusion on my position regarding illegal immigration. I've allowed many of you into my thought process involved in problem solving my position over how I feel about illegal immigration coming over the southern border and I want to share my final conclusion with you.
We have to stop enabling corrupt politics and enslaving our neighbors to the south by offering a pressure release valve for them to escape the condition their country is in.
I came to the realization that they are like drug addicts and that by allowing the people of that nation an easy way out we are both hurting them and us at the same time.
I really like a lot of the friends I've made from Mexico but this is the cold hard truth. It will serve us all better in the long run and eventually lead to an open border policy with Mexico and better future trade deals similar to what we have with Canada.
I'm sorry Mexico but I look forward to you rebuilding and our future relationship.
Thanks for listening.
