The problem is not that our immigration laws are bad, we have just about the same laws as every other country

The problem is we did not ENFORCE THEM for 40 years

So... you have whole families here who are technically illegal but Mexico is not and has never been their home.

So, whazt do you do?

I would be for a guest worker REGISTRATION program- everyone working here must register (so we know who the heck is here)

NO CITIZENSHIP- NO VOTING

Then, any employer who hires someone NOT registered (totally illegal) gets MANDATORY 10 year jail term.

That alone would fix all the problems

Not totally true. I remember in the late 1980s having to wait forever for a meal at my favorite Mexican restaurant because the INS had been around that morning and 3/4 of the staff were sent home. TRUE they were felons to being with by hiring these illegals (pre e-verify), but the INS was doing some enforcement back then.
