Wall building is stupid. People will just find another way. Overstaying tourist visas is like 45% of the problem and those people come on planes.


Wall building would be a nice way to put folks to work who are willing to pick up a shovel. And very, very cheap, compared to putting armed folks on carriers and sending them out to kill folks we have no beef with.

The evil is comparative. It has to be when how much less evil is the only option :)

"Make it illegal to hire an undocumented worker and the problem"

It's already illegal. We just don't enforce it, sadly. Jail time for those who hire illegals would do wonders for both the immigrathing "effect" and its outcome.

I don't see this as an important issue at all. Illegal immigration really only impacts the lowest class of untrained worker. If you can be replaced by a person with little education who can't speak the language then you are shit and have no right to complain about your situation. Immigrants work hard and are only trying to survive. They are just an easy scapegoat for ignorant racists.

Let's move on to more important issues like prison reform, cost of education, health care, and all the issues that people with a brain know are more important. If illegal immigration is your #1 issue then I invite you to do some research into what REALLY impacts your way of life not these ginned up bullshit issues that candidates use to manipulate the "low information" voters.

Politicians call it an important social issue, Magicians call it misdirection. Accomplishes the same thing. The performer distract the public with something startling but unimportant while the performer can do what they intended without the public noticing. I think its what politicians are not talking about that deserves the most attention. To lighten things up a little the incomparable Maria Bamford.

Maria Bamford is friggin' hilarious! She's one of my favorite comics. She's got some fantastic perspective/insight on things!
