Border crossings from Mexico were up 9% as reported by the US Border Patrol. When the economy starts humming again there is a rise in illegal immigration.
Immigration laws are only good if they are enforced. We can see how that's working out. If you start targeting the employers then you do not have to worry about deporting the 11 million illegal immigrants. They will self-deport.
America should not reward people who have broken our laws. We should only allow immigration when we have full employment. Then we should pick from the best and the brightest who will not be a burden on this country.
First and foremost we should not let a class of people jump to the front of the line before those going through the proper channels.
