The only immigration bill I can get behind is enforcement, and enforcement only.

Oh what a novel idea! The one part of an immigration bill that is never fully addressed. Well, let's do only that this time! I bet it will work!

We cannot ever control this until our President decides to care about enforcement. Employers and Politicians love illegals. Keeps the rich going strong at the expense of the middle class. I've always believed that Nafta made it possible for smugglers to bring a 18 wheeler into the States full of illegals. They come through different channels than before. But we the citizenry know they're still coming everyday. And making promises of legalizing these cockroaches makes it more urgent to start fining employers who hire. And if we don't start denying birthright citizenship and child tax credit's for anchor's, it will never, never stop.I blame our Government for not protecting the sovereignty of the U.S. I only wish the military was in charge of ICE. Thing's might get done . They have effective fences in Israel and many other borders, we can't compete? Pleeeze..

Dividing Australia: The story of the rabbit-proof fence
The Rabbit-Proof Fence is Australia’s equivalent of the Great Wall of China. Traversing the vast dusty plains of Western Australia from the southern ocean at Starvation Boat Harbour to Eighty Mile Beach north of Port Hedland, it cuts the continent in two.

The administrative engine that drove the Fence across the country was substantial. As well as the Minister and Under Secretary, the Rabbit Department had its Chief Inspector, sub-inspectors and foremen, all invested in the success of the Fence. Speed and efficiency were of the essence in their race against the spread of the rabbits.

By 1904, despite the vigilance of the boundary riders, rabbits had been found west of the incomplete fence and the Government directed that a second fence be erected parallel to the first and 80 miles west of it. The fences became known as No.2 Fence and No.1 Fence respectively. Later still, No.3 Fence was constructed, connecting Fences 1 and 2 before running due east to Bluff Point. In 1907, the Fence was at last complete and the Chief Rabbit Inspector sang its praises:‘I went along portions of the R.P. Fence to the north of Burracoppin recently on the outside (east) and there was not a blade of grass to be seen, not even enough to feed a bandicoot. On the west side there was grass from three to six inches high and any amount of old feed.’

But such praise was short-lived. Within its first decade, the Fence was in disrepute and by the end of its second, following wartime shortages in labour and supplies, it was in disrepair.

‘This Board is of the opinion that the Rabbit Proof Fence has outlived its usefulness as the rabbits are more numerous inside the Fence than on the outside....’

As a barrier against the Rabbit Menace, the Fence was a failure,...‘slanted support posts that allowed rabbits to climb over, carelessness or warped timber that left gaps at gates, loose soil or sloppy work that allowed rabbits to dig under.’

From the beginning, it was largely a gigantic make-believe – a danger, too, inasmuch as it, like other large fences, lulled the landholders most concerned, into a false sense of security, which numbed his own endeavours and really assisted the spread of the Rabbit.

The European invaders of Australia found a vast, empty and unused land and justified their terra nullius claim accordingly.

The Fence is redolent of a European concept of ownership – laying out a boundary, marking one’s territory, pegging out a corner, staking a claim – a physical means of asserting title to a piece of land.

Running alongside this utopian perception of Australia’s potential was a more unsettling experience; a sense of alienation from an unfamiliar landscape.

In this sense, the Fence is emblematic of attempts to overcome and control the land; it is the fossil of a response to an unfamiliar landscape; a pastoral footprint on a land not easily tamed. While it was built in a time of unbounded optimism, it was driven by a whisper of fear.

Some file for false disability during time in the military. Many cannot make it in a working world.

Wow, this coming from one who supposedly pays no taxes, has false documents and is the king of liars. How the heck do you look at yourself in a mirror each day? Many illegals can't seem to make it without lying, cheating and stealing from Americans, nor can they survive without taxpayer freebies.
