I have a great way to stop illegal immigration- shut down those check cashing and money transfer businesses.

If that will not work require anyone who uses these services to have a valid social security number or a valid passport and Visa from a foreign country. Those people who have been here on an expired Visa or came to America illegally would not be allowed to use the Money transfer company or cash a check.

What do you think? Will it work?

It wouldn't work, too many main stream banks are now fighting over the illegal alien business, Wells Fargo, B or A just to name a couple. They are not only opening accounts for them they are giving them mortgages and doing business across our southern border as well.

Shutting down the check cashing businesses would hurt too many poor Americans that use them.
