Nah, the government shouldn’t be subsidizing any of that to begin with. So no wall, cut the welfare. Deal?

Our whole agriculture industry would be destroyed without illegal immigrants.

We haven't "survived" without immigrant help in this country for centuries.
The bracero program only existed during WW II.

Doubt it. Stop welfare in its entirety and watch those jobs get filled.

Not a bad trade off. Farmers will pay higher wages and food costs will rise, balanced out by lower fed spending. Would put our economy closer to a natural equilibrium.

The cost is already on us.

We're trying to reduce it.

Lightbulb Illegal labor = corporate welfare

The proceeds will be placed in a trust fund for the construction and related infrastructure for the southwest border with Mexico. If this bill were signed into law, Americans could lend money to the federal government by buying wall bonds, just as we did in World War II for war bonds, and the money could be directed for use on the security wall.

But illegal labor will just keep on coming right through the border.

The same way they have for decades.

And tRump's wall won't even slow 'em down.

Of course, a guy like tRump, who hires illegals, doesn't want the flow of cheap workers interrupted. Neither do the GOP's corporate owners, who LOVE having millions of sub-minimum wage workers in the US labor pool.

Just something for Trumplings to consider.

How many times does it have to be repeated in here that there are unlimited visas for legal, foreign farm workers before the liberal left stops repeating the nonsense that the agricultural industry would go belly up from losing their cheap, illegal workers?
