Ok, so I didn't take a look at the exact wording of the Amendment before I posted...Sue me.
Seriously though, I was referring to the prisoners when I was talking about using "slave labor," not the illegals...Besides, with an
Executive Branch (Constitutionally charged with "executing faithfully the laws") that refuses to enforce the Immigration Laws, you'd have to
catch the illegal immigrants first before holding court.
Then, when you consider the costs involved in the whole process, it'd be a lot cheaper in the long run to merely pay some wage to prisoners for the
work, compared to using convicted illegal immigrants or merely deporting them.
Or better yet, how about bringing the Executive Branch (& any other criminals in Government) to trial...Let them work on the farms...Poetic
