More immigrants are fleeing than entering. The way the laws have been changed in the last seven years makes it almost a fact that an immigrant (without documents) will not be taking a job of a citizen. For one, there is a new draconian identification check called e-Verify that's nearly universal. For two there are large penalties for employers caught employing immigrants. Three, we now have essentially a national ID, in the form of our old State driver's licenses. Immigrants can't get them. So they can't drive, if they're caught (with tag readers), they will be pulled over, jailed indefinitely until they admit where they are from. So they do. We have a gulag system of detention camps set up around the country to house them until they deport them. Obama deported more than all other administrations combined.
They are not going to close the border because they are secretly EUing the US, Canada, and Mexico.
Amnesty is a joke. It will immediately mire the immigrant in $200,000 of USGOVT debt, require them to support the government's unfunded obligitory ponzis (Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare). They will have to 'go to the back of the line', meaning wait 20 maybe thirty years for benefits...LMAO...sorry...LOL I tell every immigrant I meet not to be fooled. But contrary to what Americans think, they do not want to stay here. They would just like some human rights while they are here.
But Ron Paul also recently said that the Amnesty plan was to make sure that every employer eVerifies. So an estimated 10 million US citizens would be ineligible to work as well.
It is really sad. What is even more sad is that the folks that I know who are the most vocal are pure and simple racists. They have a fear of the short, dark, and accented individual. Lots of so-called libertarians are like this as well. Mexicans in particular are just plain looked down upon here. It is really bizarre. But I have traveled far and wide and every place has there dirty little brother generally living just South of them. It's a human thing. Mexicans do it to Guatemalans. In the South though, they look down on their Northern neighbors.
