Seal the border and arrest illegal immigrants without resorting to extremist tactics and you may just be on to something.
I am the opposite-----------with the proviso that all people carry some sort of ID.

Factoring in that virtually all of us have either driver's licenses or similar ID..........your concerns are moot.

Other than that, the quality of life sucks unless you are like many generations into living here and have adapted.

Funny they can “afford” to pay coyotes thousands of dollars to enter this country illegally. They can also “afford” to send billions to their countries of origin. But somehow they can’t “afford” to follow the process?

And looking at just our economy: may the rest of the illegal aliens leave---------they are nothing more than criminals.
