Sessions: good that he will go after white-collar CEOs. I hope he does the Iceland thing and throws them all in prison.
I'm not advocating for unemployment.
I'm advocating AGAINST slavery. I wish people would stop thinking that $7 an hour is a living wage. Companies need to pay their EMPLOYEES a living wage before paying their shareholders. THAT needs to stop.
Ownership of a person means they are literally no more than livestock. A slave has no right to food, shelter, water... they are forced to eat whatever their owner makes available, stay where their owner makes them stay

Again, that paranoid thinking that relies more on emotion and belief.
Everything you propose adds to the issues you claim to want to solve. The reason those poor folk in the hotel are treated the way they are is that they were tricked into trespassing in the first place. The Coyotes promised them how wonderful life would be here, just to get their life savings. Stop illegal entry and you stop the Coyotes. You stop the substandard wages and treatment. You stop the misery. You improve the ability of the people to help others and indirectly support charities. You eventually gain a surplus of jobs that people can enter legally to do and improve their lives as well... without paying criminals to do so. And yeah... jail time for anyone who knowingly hires illegals. Not fines... jail.
You are disconnected, Buzzy. Badly disconnected. I'm assuming, based on your posts thus far, that you have never written a check for the power bill, then raced to borrow enough money to cover it. I'm guessing you've never told someone you can't come to see them because you can't afford $10 of gas. Must be nice to be you.
Now you call me an elitist, a bigot, a hate-monger, a zealot...
helping me. I can't afford it.
Talking to people about there problems does not make them go away, give them a home, job or health care.
If you don't want them hiring "illegals", then hold the companies accountable.

Don't we pay into our own unemployment when we work?
You're thinking about unemployment insurance. It runs out. Trust me.
The funny thing is, there had been for years billboards in Mexico in Spanish, "Mucho Trabajo en Russellville, Alabama" along with a special phone number to call so local recruiters could help them get to Alabama for jobs. These billboards could be found in towns all along the US-Mexico border.
