Proposal: instead of asking Mexico to pay for building the wall Trump advocates, what say we hire (and pay) people in the US illegally, at a very good hourly wage, to build the wall -- a nice, thick, tall wall -- with the stipulation they complete it from the Mexico side and remain on that side upon completion. I think we could hire about 11 million people and build the wall very quickly.
But let's get serious. It's a violation of federal law to hire anyone here illegally. Has anyone ever been prosecuted for this? If we put some big employers in jail, the labor market would dry up and, if we also stopped giving "entitlements" and drivers licenses and "stuff" to illegals, they'd go home and we wouldn't even need a wall.
