The original post asked what "we" can do as a result of our government not resolving certain issues. Almost every post involved governmental powers and actions, not individual actions.

Bottom line? When/if the social problems get bad enough: widespread tax revolts. Don't like funding a system that pours out money to uneducated habitual breeders? Stop paying taxes, or reduce what you pay in taxes equivalent to what Big Bro allocates for social service programs.

Check out the Death & Taxes poster to roughly see what goes where:
Death and Taxes: 2009

Don't support organizations or charities that offer free food, clothing, diapers, etc to immigrants.

The greedy poor will stop riding the high horse when there's no more water. Survival of the fittest, you know.

I can't believe I'm hearing more and more opinion of Americans wanting to "kill" Mexicans because they're making a dash for the US Government's pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Future genocide, here we come. Stop funding the rainbow.

Hey, you asked.

Swim upstream if you like...you'll find that the currents of economics and culture are strong indeed. Like it or not, there will be considerably more immigration into this country over the coming decades. The only question is whether that should be out in the open or under the table. One approach minimizes costs, the other one minimizes benefits. Shouldn't be such a tough choice. Normalization is the only sane path to follow and there is no normalization that does not include amnesty. Get used to it or get left behind...

I think you'll find the majority of americans swimming upstream with rising unemployment. If our Congressmembers want to stay in office they'll swim with us.

But, as you say Dr. O, make certain that what you are asking for is what you really want. The cost of goods and services will absolutely rise to make it possible for the employers to hire new legal employees and pay them a living wage.
In Indiana any company who hires illegals and gets caughts looses their business license and pays a fine of $10,000

Nothing will happen. The loonie talk show nuts will make sure of that.

Doesn't really matter anyway, illegal immigration is decreasing on its own now that our economy is flushing down the toilet.

In a few years illegals will probably be heading the other way like they did during the Great Depression.

Gringos will be lookin for maquiladora work.

Complete the fence, more border patrol.
Make the fines stiff enough to make it to high a risk to employ illegals.
Fine land lords who rent to illegals
Deport any illegal caught.
Its not rocket science.

Stop giving them jobs.
Stop healthcare and handouts.
Put any illegals in the back of a rusty pickup truck with a shotgun in the back window.
Transport them to the border.
Tell them to go back where they came from.
If they refuse, use the shotgun.
The way things are going now it is time to start taking care of us.
Everyone else has to fend tor themselves.
IN THEIR OWN DAMN COUNTRY.
