Use the same logic with the border jumpers .If not hiring new agents isnt going to really help.
Well it would help deter new illegal entries but yes internal enforcement should continue also. Unfortunately, Obama has put an end to that unless one is a convicted felon.

Its just the same old smoke and mirrors. If they really wanted border enforcement they would add 20.000 trained guard dogs.Those running around sneaking in the bushes will be quick game for trained dogs...Wonder why they don't use dogs more?Has Obama said that they couldn't use dogs ? Fly a drone plane over an area and if anyone is seen sneaking around quickly go and release 5 dogs....Problem solved. They would tree those mexicans like racoons.This is such a good idea I should be paid big money for giving out such a good suggestion.They are paying good money for the border guards who cant seem to guard anyway.

If they apprehended all the people crossing illegally, where would the restaurants get kitchen help, or home builders get their laborers?

Hmmmmm the builders would have to go back to paying legal citizens the industry standard.
Restaurants would do what they do where I live and hire legal citizens.
It is 100% myth that illegals only do the jobs legals won't do.

More border agents will make no difference as long as all it takes is to get here, have a baby and immediately begin to receive food stamps, Medicaid and a free pass around the immigration laws.

And people need to realize how very easy it is to obtain a border crossing card, either a legally issued one or one from the black market -- they are sold on the streets of every Mexican border town and make it very very easy to get into the USA and then absolutely nothing is being done about those who remain here.

Who do you think did those jobs before the arrival of illegal aliens?

The restaurants would for sure be much safer seeing that the illegals are not checked for TB, HIV, and hundreds of other diseases that can spread to us. Here we are not a third world country and have health standards. The illegals don't obey our rules in case you didn't know.The people that would do the jobs if the illegals didn't would offer cleaner standards for the american public that likes to eat out..

Yes and maybe if restaurants would offer health insurance, overtime pay and other legal job benefits, they'd find employees.

Not all restaurants hire only illegals -- but why should those who break the laws be given competitive advantage over those who respect the laws? Let those business owners who cannot bring themselves to hire Americans be shut down. Who needs them?

They can relocate their businesses to those countries whose citizens they prefer to employ.

I hate knowing every time I go out to eat that even though it may be an expensive restaurant I have NO WAY of knowing the cooks are not illegals with communicable diseases.We have a system to check the restaurants for rat turds and **** roaches and will quickly shut down a place that does not comply but WE DON'T CHECK FOR ILLEGALS COOKING THE FOOD. This is absurd

That would be a better solution. Cut off the jobs and they will stop coming. Actually high jobless rates under Obama have slowed the flow. And border enforcement is totally useless stopping those who overstay their visas.
