"I know that there are detention centers in the U.S.A where they hold illegal immigrants (mostly Mexican)." dianavan

I'm not aware of this. Would you please point me to a link? Thanks.

As has been said many times, until we as a nation are not so conflicted about the issue it will not get resolved. As has been said many times, if companies and individuals found themselves facing a jail term and/or a hefty fine for being caught hiring illegal immigrants the cure would be quickly found.

A friend of mine advocates that companies be forced to close each store when the company has been found guilty of illegal hiring - in fact, he goes further. He says that if Walmart, for instance, is found guilty of it the whole chain should face mandated closure for an agreed upon time.

We've had the laws on the books for a long time. We should either abide by them or void them.

All that said, I must admit that I'm in favor of immigration, illegal and not. I think the mix of cultures and races in the US has had an overwhelmingly beneficial effect. Further, I am not a Communist - mostly because I don't think it works - but manmade borders and other constructs to my mind are artificial divisions.
