We also need to pull out all the stops to secure our borders. We could do a lot more to deter illegal immigration than we are currently doing. Promising those already here illegally amnesty is the worse thing we could do.

From reading your posts however it appears you think we need these people but we don't. If we did we would have increased our visa worker quotas so that they could come here legally to work. As I said, please bone up on what illegal immigrants are actually costing our country. The only ones that benefit from them are the greedy employers.
The Black and White Underclass that would end up being hired due to the strict rules and regulations on hiring would be terrible workers and drive the employers crazy. Lots of fighting, lazyness and turnover. American born workers from the underclass are bad news.

(This opinion is from someone who just hates the fact that there is so much legal and illegal immigration in America)

Really? So black and white Americans aren't willing to do construction work, etc? It wasn't the underclass that were doing that job and many others prior to the presence of millions of illegal aliens in this country. They once paid a livable wage and required skills. The lower paying jobs were entry level jobs for our youth. There wasn't a lot of fighting, laziness, etc. I don't know where you are getting your info but you might try another source or just use some common sense based on American worker's past. Just what strict rules and regulations on the job are you referring to that weren't in place before?

Well the white part of that of that person would leave to Europe and the Native American(Asian part) would go back to Asia. So when are they leaving to go back to Asia is the second part to your question.

I hate the fact that the illegals are in this country but understand why they are here and the economic and workforce challenges the country would face if they left.
Revamp welfare and kick off the ablebodied lazy and let them starve and then you will see who will take those jobs.

Agreed. Let the PWT meth heads "man up" along with their Black and Indian brothers and sisters. If they break the law; put them in tent cities in the middle of nowhere.

I have the best and easiest way to rid the US of illegal immigrants, and most immigrants in general. Set Fed interest rates to at least 30% thus crashing and burning the economy, and the foreigners will disappear. This will also have a domino effect in Canada, Australia, and the EU as well.

I think that would have the opposite effect. With a colapse, there would no longer be any border patrol and movement from country to country would be even more unregulated. And who better to deal with economic colapse than folks accustomed to third-world conditions.

First, my post was tongue in cheek. Second, most foreigners that move here don't move here because they just love America and fell in love with the geography. They move here for economic opportunity. Remove that, and most foreigners will disappear. Fact

No, you would also have blacks, and legal immigrants working there still. Not to mention, maybe some teenagers could find work for a change at these places.
