..So apparently, if we all quit whining about illegal immigration, accepted it as inevitable, and sought to TRIPLE the numbers..or even QUADRUPLE them, say over the next ten years....at SOME point, we'd reach a state where our WAGES were reduced to $2.75 an hour, but we wouldn't mind...because our CRIME rate would drop to virtually ZERO.

Maybe this wouldn't be such a bad trade-off, at that....with the "help" of the "invasion", there's no telling HOW far we might advance.....or we COULD just revoke ALL American citizenship, turn ALL OF US into illegals, and we'd have a whole SOCIETY of hard-working, crime free folks, who don't have TIME to cause trouble, because we'd "only want to work".

Now THAT would be utopia. One can only dream of such a day.

Please don't try to confuse the issue. If you want to talk about "Utopia" you should go to the Salt Lake City forum. It's NOT just about Utopia, anyway..illegals impact all 52 states, not just the Mormon ones.

That will cause some number to go home and discourage others from coming. So we don't need to do anything immediately. But we do need to have our ducks in a row before the economy picks up again.
We can continue to enforce the laws and prosecute illegal employers landlords and the illegals with diligence and tenacity. This will help to motivate the illegals to return from where they came from. If we also seize their assets that would further motivate them.

Thanks for correcting me. Sometimes I annoy myself.

Well......yes. And if we were all illegals, we could all have multiple identities and be anyone we want. For instance, you could buy a new ID that says you are Brad Pitt.

Don't let it bother you...it's not the 'end of the world', anyway. Obama only said he'd stop hate speech directed at ILLEGALS....as soon as they're 'legal', they're OK to hate.....at least, that's my understanding.
