    Once again: If you want to reduce illegal immigration, prosecute those who hire them. Illegals come to this country for jobs. Prosecute those who hire them and the jobs will disappear. Illegals will stop coming. Wages will rise, at least somewhat.
    -
    Note: prosecuting those who break the law does not rule out a guest worker program.
    -
    However, if you really WANT illegals to come here, in order to supply cheap labor, but you don’t want to SAY that’s what you want, then yes, continue to demand an ever higher fence along the southern border. Such a fence will not be effective and even if it were, it would affect only illegals from Mexico, no other countries.

    If you want to reduce illegal immigration, stop supporting the tyrants and maniacs who make life unlivable for the people in other countries.

    Well, the difference is we did pretty well under Clinton by any measure, and did really poorly under the Bushes by any measure. That should actually make a difference.

    When I lived in the Tampa Bay Area, the favorite saying after the 2000 debacle was “The Election Ain’t Over Until Your Brother Certifies The Votes!”
    I don’t think Jeb will EVER live down inflicting his numbskull brother and “His” administration on America and the World!

    Some years ago I read an article (by somebody) where the author stated that of all of the Bushes, Jeb was the only one that was actually qualified to be President. His problem would be that his brother and his father had killed any chance of his ever becoming President.

    Clinton & predecessors: allow most illegal immigrants, but have occasional, highly-publicised round-ups. Employers could pay well below minimum wage. Undocumented workers who complained would be rounded up and deported.


    Bush approach: allow most illegal immigrants, but have occasional, highly-publicised round-ups. Employers could pay well below minimum wage. Undocumented workers who complained would be rounded up and put into the private prisons that paid the most baksheesh.


    Obama: allow most illegal immigrants, but deport all those the Federal government was paying private prisons to incarcerate (since all profits went to Bush, Jr & Friends); prosecute some employers (the law has heavy penalties, seldom applied, but sporadically imposed by Obama); deport more Hispanic-looking people than any other president, while running ads in Spanish that anyone not engaging in heinous crimes would NEVER be arrested and deported (only in English, never in Spanish: being in the US illegally counts as a heinous crime, but only sporadically).


    Net: employers who pay baksheesh get workers at well below minimum wage; undocumented workers got much more than in their home countries; a few well-publicised round-ups convince the voters the administration is doing everything it can; and everyone is satisfied.


    So no significant change is likely, now or ever.

    Yup, that’s your plan.

    First: Jeb has to go climb over the wall of immigration,
    Second: He has to swim through the swamp of GOP politics.
    Third: He has to climb the wall of George’s negative influence.
    Fouth: He has to negotiate the Monkey Bars of the Economy.
    Finally Jeb has to jump the pit of public opinion.
    Election 2016 sounds more like American Ninja.

    I knew this as(word) was gonna run in 2016. This is the guy who gave the Indians those nice fancy Casinos and prevented parimutuels from starting their own. Then there’s the “stand your ground” law and that FCAT that is turning our youth into test passing machines. Let’s also not forget that his pet attorney general gave the election to his brother via cage voting (which I have yet to hear a single right winger complain about), and did I mention that he’s also responsible for those license plates that read “choose life”?


    This guy screwed up Florida big time and he’s supposedly the smarter Bush.
