If there are jobs, illegals will come

When John Boehner was speaker of the House, he stated that as long as Obama was president, we will not pass anything. Now Sen. Mitch McConnell refuses to put anything up for a vote if it is written by a Democrat. The time will come when McConnell and others will no longer be in charge.

What they are doing now may end up biting them in the rear. Why is it that Trump does not prosecute his wealthy friends for hiring illegals? This is the reason why. John Citizen is paid $12 an hour and pays taxes. He hires an illegal for $8 an hour and pays no taxes. The employer saves $4 an hour per person. ...

The illegals are picked up by ICE and deported back to Mexico. They then tell a friend where they worked while in the U.S. and that no one checked to see if they were there legally. That person tells two more and the word gets out. If you create jobs, they will come; if there are no jobs, there won’t come. Word of mouth is the best advertisement. I lived by the border for 40 years, and no wall will keep them from coming as long as work is available.
