Humans have migrated since before we have written words, there will never be a stop to people moving to a different part of the world, people act like they invented this illegal immigration crap, the more walls we build between each other the more people will break them down.

The other problem with illegals sending the money they are paid under the table in wages home is this:
They use our tax supported infrastructure like schools and to a certain extent hospitals, but they are not fully paying into the system themselves. They are not legal employees so the usual taxes and fees an employer must pay not being paid and the usual rounds of employment taxes are not withheld. They then have access to the public schools and ERs for their use.
They are sending the money they take out to their country of origin, so that money isn't even put back into circulation for someone else to get taxed on.

How is an illegal sending moeny home the same as countries buying bonds?
Ok, the town creates there own currency. Then people go in there and take all of the currency, and the town has nothing left. No products are purchased in the town, only people working there. This town would die. The more purchases that are made in the town, the better, regardless of what the currency is.
As for the rest, people would work if they were not receiving money for not working. Sure the transition could be somewhat painful, but that is the fault of the businesses that took shortcuts by hiring illegals. At this rate, people will say we are never ready, and these illegals will continue to be exploited.

It's not trafficking. Most people PAY to actually pass illegally. It's a process, and many illegals die trying to get here. Let alone, Minutemen shooting humans and proudly protecting a country, not of their own.
