Illegal Aliens don't want to work the fields. They rather drop Anchor Babies and collect welfare. This is less labor intensive!

If people really want to work they would take some of those jobs. Maybe some on the government dole should be prodded to take them, several senators come to mind.

There is only one way to close the border and that is to station our National Guard along the border with orders to shoot anyone and everyone attempting to cross our border illegally. Then at the crossings points we electronically fingerprint every person entering this country from another country. At the same time they will be asked if they are seeking political asylum. If they are seeking asylum then they will be directed to a room where they will be interviewed and if they qualify given a Green Card and allowed to enter this country as a legal immigrant. If they are a migrant worker then they will be directed to another room for processing and being assigned a farm to work. All others seeking to work here will be put on a waiting list and allowed to enter ONLY when a job becomes available. All other will be allowed to enter as visitors and given a Visitor Passes. If they over stay their Visitors Pass they will be arrested and escorted back across the border. Yes the Passes will have a GPS chip in them so it will be very easy to track them down.
