Anyone remember East Germany's border fence? It was reviled by the entire world, and here we are DEMANDING one just like it. Far better to demand photo ID for voting. Far better to hammer employers who hire illegal workers. Far better to deny all welfare, health care, food aid, housing, et al, to illegal persons. Far better to enforce the laws already on the books.

I remember East Germany's fence. It kept people IN. We are not demanding one just like it. Is the Great Wall of China reviled by the world? Nope. Might want to rethink your position.

He won't. His premise is fueled by the fact that he doesn't have a problem with illegal aliens and doesn't WANT border security.

e-verify would fix things tomorrow....which is why it isn't considered in Washington DC.
