Houston is a sanctuary city. It's also heavily in debt, like billions of dollars.
Illegals coming from Mexico want to come to Houston. It's their destination.

I'm not saying whether it's good or bad - It just is. It's a fact.

They should be able to keep their illegal aliens in exchange for absolutely no federal funding for their schools, cities, counties and states.

I think it is weird when sanctuary cities claim that they are such incredible places yet they usually seem to have major budget shortfalls, crumbling infrastructures and overall just a very third-world feel to them.
Are you talking about my home state? (-;

America will never get rid of illegals and semi-illegals. They need them too much, to pick those crops and clean the hotels, after someone's had a golden shower!

But you would agree that every effort must be used to uphold the rule of law to rid and stop criminal illegal aliens from invading our borders...right? right?

Yeah, by "fining or confiscating" the businesses that hire them!

What, exactly, is a "semi-illegal"? Either someone is here legally or they are here illegally.

Are you saying you like the idea of a slave class of laborers? Is that why you're pro-illegal immigration? After all, you seem to not know that Americans do those jobs (picking crops and cleaning hotels). Who do you think did those jobs before we got infested with illegal aliens? Americans did those jobs and still do them. We don't need any illegal aliens for any reasons. Period.

Here's a thought:

Have American employers stop busing in Mexican workers to the US for cheap labor.

It's always the "elephant in the room" that we're not supposed to look at, think about, or talk about.

Wrong. Lots of people want them. They love underpaying for that illegal labor.

You don't speak for me. I will gladly pay extra to hire someone who is here legally or an American citizen plus is licensed and insured.
