” Well think about this: we must secure the border. We should cut off all govt bennies. We should deport felons as arrested. If we did those three things, this problem would self correct in a matter of years, and would immediately improve our economy dramatically.”
I think that solution is the one to pursue, because it would not harm legal citizens in the process. I think people are being very naive if they think that more expensive salads are all we’d face if there was a mass deport. You can’t unravel a 60 year phenomenon driven by supply and demand overnight and not severly harm the system. You just can’t.
I mean, I wish you could, but its not possible. As such, there would be tremendous negative consequences to people who are 100% legal and as white as Wonder Bread.
