    be to work on the real problems rather than just keeping on with the race to the bottom.

    Ah, what the hell. I'm 62. Perhaps I should just step aside and let the future happen, eh? I'm too old to get a job under any circumstances anyway, apparently.

      Now that illegal immigration has stopped is the time to make the meaningful types of reforms it will take to cure the problems. Fence building is no longer needed and arming the border isn't either. The USA needs to stop the giant farm subsidies which hurts farming in Mexico and Central America. We need to bring farmworkers under the same laws all other American workers enjoy. We need immigration reform which provides those here a path to citizenship. We need to redo NAFTA and other unfree trade policies. E-verify may be a part of the solution but it needs to be implemented as a part of overall reform.

      But hey, I'm 70 yrs old so I know how you feel.

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
