The wall is not the answer to our immigration problems. Legal immigration should be encouraged. We welcome immigrants into this country. But the problem is people are coming here to work. They are violating our employment and immigration laws to work. So our elected leaders need to eliminate the draw to come here illegally and come her legally. E Verify has to become the law of the land if you want to work in the United States. This needs to be done before you should even consider building a wall. The border should be secured. But to spend billions on a wall is just ridiculous. Employers are the problem with illegal immigration. Employers are taking fake papers and fake social security numbers and just looking the other way because they like cheap exploitable labor. This has to be addressed by our elected leaders. Just what are you doing to encourage LEGAL immigration ? What are you doing about illegal immigration? Please take the first step in requiring E Verify by all employers. We all should have to submit our E Verify number on our tax returns to show we worked here in the US and who our employer is.
This would eliminate immigrants coming here to work. They would apply to come here legally and this would be the right thing to do as a nation of laws.
Please encourage E Verify as the law of the land.
