As I wrote before, I want border enforcement, the rule of law and then a "guest worker" program that allows certain industries to import Mexican workers.
It's a shame that President Johnson and the Democrats killed the "brasero" program in the late 1960s. I understand that the "brasero program" had its problems but it did provide a legal means for employers to hire people. Since its termination, US employers have not had a legal system to hire Mexican workers.
The Republicans have the right idea today. You have to start at the border and reestablish the idea that crossing an international boundary without proper documentation is unacceptable.
This illegal immigration debate is going in various directions. Check this out Suit over illegals OK'd for workers at Tyson Foods:
"A federal judge has ruled that workers can file a class-action suit against Tyson Foods Inc. for depressing wages by hiring illegal aliens.
Howard W. Foster, a Chicago lawyer for the Tyson employees, described the ruling in Winchester, Tenn., as a "very big step," allowing him to seek damages for thousands of workers at eight plants -- including one in Glen Allen, Va. -- instead of just the four original plaintiffs.
The case, filed in 2002 under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), is one of a growing number across the nation challenging illegal aliens in the workplace. In August, a temporary agency in California sued its competitors under the state's unfair-competition laws."
I agree with the plaintiff. You can not compete with companies hiring illegals. These companies are creating an unfair advantage. An illegal employee costs less, which is why many companies prefer to hire them.
