The President, if he were to grow some balls, could take care of the illegal immigration problem. He could post a Border Patrol car at the entrance of every major meat packing plant, agricultural operation, and construction site.
The next day when nobody shows up to work, there would be a bunch of CEOs pounding on and howling at his door. He could tell them to order the congress, which they own, to pass a comprehensive immigration bill. It would happen in a week.
Congress, of course, should make the employers responsible for the health care of their illegal employees. The way it is now if one is injured on the job they are lucky to be dropped off at the emergency room where we pay the bill.
The workers are not bad people. They came to work and better provide for their families. Why do conservatives claim to value hard work but love to hate hard workers with brown skin? Why don't they hate the employers who sometimes use agents to recruit workers from south of the border? I have been down there and if I lived there damn right I would try to get out.
We are all guilty. If we eat in restaurants or buy products, especially meat and produce, do we check to see if no illegals were involved or do we just enjoy those low low prices? We are morally to blame.
