Seems to me with all the money being thrown at the coyotes to get people over the border our goverment should open a new agency.They could charge them $2500.00 for a work permit give them a number to pay taxes and medical.Then open a job service that would allow employers to hire them. If employers did not use this service they could fine them BIG TIME. Make the work permits for 2 years then give them a green card based on their tax income Green cards would have a 5 year life in which time they could take required courses for US citizenship

I think that they should build a wall. their are too many of immigrants always on the move and i think that border patrol agents are doing the best they can, but they need more help out there.

We need to air drop all of our low priority prison inmates in Mexico City one night and let the see what mass illegal immigration feels like.
Would also return quite a few Mexican nationals and clean out prison system out.

This article is a cartoon. Mexicans pay $1,200 to get across the border? Complete horse manure. Where did that money come from? They've been able to save $1,200 and they spend it to come here and pick lettuce? Bull*hit. Complete and utter Bull*hit. So this punk is going to make more money now that the US wants to have laws to keep law-breakers out? Good, now who is he, and where can our agents find him? Because this garbage smuggles in murderers, rapists, thieves, and gang animals.

I am afraid those figures are about right, here in Texas me and mine just have to deal with illegals everyday, they are an unfortanate fact of life here. Mi habla piquito epanol, but enough to communicate. The illegals tell me that their relatives and friends who are already here wire them the money to pay the coyotes. Some even boast that the money is raised by transporting drugs or being involved in the drug trade on some level. Militarize the border, train snipers in the border areas, deploy mines, shoot to kill. Also build a SERIOUS barrier and employ seismic detectors to find tunnel construction, then employ sappers to collapse the tunnels when the detectors hear the work is in progress. And don't forget the most important part, federal AND state prison time for employers caught with illegals, EVEN if the illegals had fake id. The employers have at their disposal the ability to verify the id's, they just need to be "motivated" to do so. Legal immigration is a good idea, and can be practical, ILLEGAL immigration is a serious threat to America, and should be handled as such.

Sounds plausible, but to a degree. The steady stream of illegals represents a heck of a lot $1,200 bills. Things can't be going that swimmingly for these (insert slang word for illegal Mexican that would compliment swimmingly) that are here already.
Certainly enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time. I've learned something.
