Yep, this is my point. Since nothing short of amnesty and an open border will satisfy the illegals and their supporters, we need to shut them out of any discussion concerning solutions. They have given up their privilege to have a seat at the table. Through their mindless claims of racism, they have shown that they have no argument. No solutions. They are nothing more than a herd of antis.

Agree 100%. Wish the MSM and elected officials would feel the same way, too. As far as I'm concerned, they never should have been given a seat at the table.

If someone breaks into your house and raids your refrigerator, do you ask them what they want you to cook for dinner for them?

3) Fine the CEO
4) Publicly humiliate those who hire illegals off the street.
4) Freeze company assets and treat them like Capital Terrorists.
5) Deny welfare, foodstamps, etc.
6) Stop landlords from renting to illegals.
7) Stop banks from lending to illegals.

Otherwise stop the flow of money and illegals will leave. No need for profiling, no need for raids just remove the cash flow.
Reasons 1-5 will result in businesses discriminating against hiring Hispanics and will be called racist.
Reasons 5-7 will be called discriminatory and racist.

The only solution acceptable to Progressives (which I am not) is to open the borders, let them in and give them citizenship. Anything less than that will always be branded racism by the Progressives.
