I never said that "you" said that the majority of Americans or businesses hire illegal aliens. I agree though illegal immigration is a big problem and I mostly blame our government for not putting a stop to it.
Yes. And I'm absolutely not feeling on the fence right now. I know I can sound wishy washy. I over think everything. Having said that, my husband (legal immigrant and veteran) came home tonight with news of something he had to deal with today regarding a "student" (he works for a school district now), I'm furious. He is, as well. We are in big trouble if things continue to go the way they are. Huge trouble.

Actually, what was passed by congress but never funded (go figure) is a double-layered wall on the most porous areas of the border. It would help the Border Patrol do their jobs more effectively. It would be a one time expense. When you calculate the costs of allowing them to continue to come here the wall would be much less expensive. On a section of our border with San Diego this type of wall was constructed and it cut back illegal immigration immensely.
