Fence the entire U.S.-Mexican border?

The truth is, American companies are welcoming illegal immigrant labor because it is cheap and illegally saves them money on taxes.

I think that if we cracked down on companies hiring illegal immigrants, there will less of an incentive for them to come to this country.


If we could finally ax the minimum wage this wouldn't be a problem at all, but i guess that's for another thread at another time.

Yeah, that's a tough one... economically speaking, having a minimum wage is not good economics... but, neither is poverty. It's a conundrum.

I can't stand illegal immigrants. My GF's friends boyfriend is an illegal who's been working here for like 3 years. It pisses me off and I have no sympathy.

I can't remember the movie, but there was some movie where they had automatic motion-sensor machine guns that just cut down the intruders. I propose putting those all the way across the border! ;-D

Reminds me of that another killer sci fi movie where there's this prison planet and each of the inmates has a collar around their necks... they don't know who their partner is, but if they get too far away from him, the collar causes both their heads to explode X-I

I wish to God there was a real fence around the border. Because I live in Arizona. Nuff said.

;-D

I'm all for this idea (except change electrocute to electrify) and let's make it high enough to keep out the acid rain and pollution and deep enough to keep our water and hockey players in. !+)

Isn't Canada part of US? :-B

Fencing an entire border might be the dumbest thing I ever heard. That's something we would come up with when we are 12 years old...

There are so many different ways to get into the country and illegal immigrants should not be the focus for our government. There are so many other things that need to be addressed way before we spend billions on some dumb fence.
