Secure the border: Build a wall and have military guard stations all along it with permission to fire on anyone who attempts to cross. Take away their reasons for being here: Prosecute businesses which knowingly hire illegal aliens and audit welfare programs to ensure illegals do not have access. Deport illegals as we find them, particularly those who are revealed during the commission of further crimes, with the sole exception of those committing capital offenses - they should be executed. Bill the Mexican government for all deportation and incarceration expenses associated with illegal aliens. If they refuse to pay, reduce the number of visas available to Mexican citizens.

We already have a "guest worker" program - green cards and work (L-1) visas.

Idiot! Shoot on sight? Execute repeat criminals? Other than those two insanely stupid remarks, you were making some very good points.

I would add to create a guest worker program to facilitate US businesses' seasonal labor needs. Let's face it, there is some work that even the poorest of Americans won't do.

It's been more than two years since Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070 and six months since the Supreme Court upheld many parts of the law, including allowing local law enforcement authorities to question immigration status after a crime has been committed. Regardless, Mexico is still fighting the legislation in court. The Mexican government has asked the 9th District Court of Appeals to block a piece of the law that prohibits harboring of illegal immigrants, something the Supreme Court did not consider during their ruling last summer.
