I have always thought that if illegal immigrants could not find work here in the US because employers would/could not hire them due to sever penalties to them and their businesses we would not have a border issue. It is wrong that the US citizens are expected to suffer the burdens of the costs of illegal immigrants when employers are benefiting from lowered employment costs. LEGAL immigrants are a treasured asset of our communities. However, illegal immigrants are hurting us, the citizens in many ways.
I know that for certain jobs, like picking fruit etc. that Americans do not want to
do we need people to employ. Perhaps there could be busing programs that allow certain work to be done by people outside our country with the expectation they will be provided housing while here and a fair wages. After a proposed amount of time within a reasonable limit the workers would be bused back across our border. Good for them and necessary for us.
The current nonsensical border wall proposition will not work for so many reasons and is a costly effort that only serves our President’s voter base.
