So that is one of 100's of things you portray yourself as an expert on.

I also used to be a serious road cyclist too - Mexico to Canada in 22 days in the Rockies - basically a century a day. That doesn't make me an expert today :)

I don't have to peer into your soul, your intents are rather clear in your post.

BTW, I hate any government paying people to sit around. Tommy Thompson had some great programs in WI when he was Gov - want a check, earn it

I also didn't state I was an economic expert, I did state I have met illegals and the people I met were hard working and trustworthy. Sorry your reading skills are so poor.

Don't question the Wizard

He has performed in every sport, whether in SB or on the moon

He has read every book printed and has generated a deeply informed opinion on every subject.

He has the solutions to every problem faced by any government, whether in SB or on the moon

He was the model for The Most Interesting Man in the World

Mark H workable solution is to kick everyone out and lock the doors.

He wants competitive markets and fair prices, but if all of the immigrants left the country there would be a resulting labor imbalance or no labor. Ask the farmers who needed crops picked in 2010 & 2011 - many immigrants went home and unemployed Americans didn't want to pick nor perform other jobs they felt were beneath them.

Likely the Mark H's of the world have never met an illegal immigrant and heard their story. I have met a few and these people were better people and more trust worthy than some segments of our legal population.

What if we decide to crack down on people who don't have name like, Sally, Julie, Bill, George etc?

Where would that leave people with a name like Omar?

Be careful about your concerns over the browning of America. It comes across as rather racist.

Our border with Canada is much more vast and less guarded. I imagine anyone focused on importing drugs, weapons, people or terrorist is also exploiting this border.

Easier to sit at home an whine

Scott, even if they had released the data prior to the meeting would you have went to the meeting to discuss your concerns? Doubtful

Would have noted all of your concerns here? Very likely

Dan, you know if Scott took the time to actually put 1 or more of his ideas into action it would take time away from being able to share his vast knowledge, experience and recommendations on all other the subjects in the local paper. :)
