    We need to work to get rid of NAFTA as well as create a US Department of Peace to train people to help the Mexicans and others develop their own economy. It would be a good way to bypass the corrupt governmental mechanisms. Also, funding microcredit loans would be a good idea as well.

    There are many ways to stop immigration that do not involve laws, fences, or stigmatization.

      The border needs some level of security.

      Motion sensors, at a minimum.

      It just doesn't make sense to allow people to enter the country undetected.

      •  That would cost a lot of money. (0+ / 0-)

        And it wouldn't address the problem. If all we did was put in motion sensors, they could always be sabatoged. And many immigrants than come here illegally are like Ahnold -- they overstay their visas.

        And no immigration plan will work when we have an INS that is not fully funded. Our first priority should be to fully fund them so they can enforce the laws already on the books. That means going after employers who knowingly hire these people.
