The border states are bearing the burden for most of the invasion. If you support open borders, how about 20% being taken off your paycheck to pay for this?

As strange as it may sound, I am not for open borders. As I see it we have enough illegal labor.

No, I wouldn't support it, people simply wouldn't identify themselves to save the 20%.

But I would support an "illegal alien tax" where every illegal alien in the country is required to self identify and pay an extra 30% tax. Then nail them for tax evasion and put them in a tent city jail.

How about those who are for the border wall, getting taxed an extra 20% to pay for it?

Same goes for the wars too.
All of the Bush votes should pay extra IMO.

It doesn't sound strange Pro. I know you are not for open borders. I've read enough of your posts to confirm that.

Yea, although I do think 6 billion for a fence is over doing. I think we can get better bids. I say we get illlegal immigrants to build a fence, probably will cost us half as much too.

The US Government screws everything up so much. Remember the 600 dollar toilet seats purchased by the Pentagon back in the 90s (this is true!).

Yes I do remember that. Let's just say it is a good time to work for Boeing right now.

They were, the contractors got busted for using illegal alien labor a few months ago. But on a serious note, I would support illegal aliens building it, as long as they were part of a prison chain gang.
