To get in and work at a job, the employer would have to prove that he can't find anyone to do the job. I think they should just be required to state that it's hard to find anyone to do the job and to do it well.

We need to fix immigration so that good, honest people can get in without being millionaires. And keep on keeping the illegals OUT. (Most Democrats do not want illegals btw.)



Don't buy your last line for a minute. They want as many as possible but not in their neighborhoods. Where they live is already blue. They want illegals in purple areas to turn them blue. No other reason.

Well, again....everything looks like a nail to the hammer!

The story, which I wrote, is in a state that is solid blue and would welcome (and has, in the past welcomed) more immigrants from most anywhere.....legal, visa holders, whatever.

Coastal areas and high income (Boston) corridors have an almost unlimited amount of work...that pays decently. Win-win.

Unlike some more southern locales, we're not looking for people to be "invisible". As you probably know, Trump doesn't even see the illegals in his clubs as the staff remove them all when he comes for a visit.

We liberals are more about decency. The multi-millionaire I speak of doesn't think he himself is a better human being than the immigrant who got deported. I know...hard for some of you to believe, but that's the true liberal way.

You call illegal aliens "whatever," and then brag how "we liberals care more about decency."

IOW, you liberals don't care about obeying laws. It's what "feels right" to you. Whatever.

Liberals don't extend that sense of decency towards their fellow Americans either when they advocate for illegal aliens to to take their jobs, taxes and resources while breaking the law to do so.

That may seem like it's harsh, but sadly, it's true.

Keep as many people as possible under-educated and poor, and they'll vote Dem. High school drop-outs and "grads" of grotesquely subpar urban public high schools? Overwhelmingly Dem. Public assistance enrollees? Overwhelmingly Dem. Buying votes with taxpayer money was intentional, and it didn't even cost the Dem politicians a dime. US taxpayers funded the vote-buying.
