In fact in order to support the growth of the railroad the government supported a huge influx of undocumented aliens.
If the government had followed your line of reasoning neither you nor I would be on this forum.
I fail to believe the problem is the big bad wolf you describe.
Nor do I believe that instituting your reforms will solve any of our economic or social woes.
Nice try .... but I NEVER said I was against legal
There is a right way for a foreigner to become a citizen, and a wrong way.
Let me ask you this question - How would you like it if people were to enter into your house without permission, eat your food, sleep in your kids room, use your water and electricity, and DEMAND to be treated like they are members of your household and insist that you also spend your $$$ for their children's education and also provide for their health needs when they are sick?
Would you be ok with that?
It has been proven time and again, when illegals are forced to leave, there is more work for the bona fide citizens. It helped during the Great Depression.
