Could bribes be involved in Congress's refusal to seal the border?
By Robert Arvay

It is no secret that the Mexican drug cartels are, at least in large part, running Mexico.  Those whom they cannot bribe, they murder.  The murders are intentionally brutal, sending an unmistakable message to those who might otherwise dare to defy them.  The cartel’s profits are on a scale that dwarfs some small countries.  They command literal armies of soldiers, men not unlike the brutal Waffen SS, which committed heinous war crimes in the 1940s.  In short, the Mexican drug cartels are a quasi-nation, one at war with the United States.

A considerable portion of the money made by the cartels is in conjunction with bringing illegal aliens to the U.S.  Undoubtedly, the massive swarms of illegals crossing our borders could not do so without direct assistance from Mexico — not only the cartels, but their bribed officials in the Mexican government.

Anything is possible these days. Congress is in desperate need of reform.

It would be a big help if we went after employers of illegals. That was supposed to be the big stick in the 86
amnesty deal. So there is a big stick in the law but Trump is afraid to use it.

In fairness ever pres since Reagan was afraid to use it. I think Trump might in his second term, if he gets
reelected.

Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Using the big stick would piss off a lot of people and ruin his chances to be reelected.

Those people aren't going to vote for him anyway.

Not sure if I agree with that.  A lot of the would-be pissed off people are in the Chamber of Commerce.

Yes, employment verification should be utilized, and this would probably set up another fight in the court as the appropriation of funds for the border wall has.

 Charges are rarely pressed, something like 11 people were charged in one recent fiscal year but back to the original post, yes, congress thumbs their nose at us, especially the Senate and get nothing done.

Going after employers means going after the donor class and going after the Chamber of Commerce. The GOPe
would go bananas. Ever Cruz would be on his ass over that.

Is Nancy Pelosi one maraca short of a mariachi band?
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

A Phoenix Mexican food chain gets raided all the time.  The legals get arrested and released but the chain is still open for business.  This has been going on with them >10 years.

The reason he got elected to begin with was because a lot of people thought he was willing to use the big stick.

They could get a lot of "little fish" such as landscapers and roofers, that's what I always see but they need to go after the big fish. Maybe restaurants are included in that.

There was a packing plant busted. They need to go after Hormel or whatever. There are stats that break it all down, production meaning textiles and so on. Construction is another category. It will be business as usual until they really decide to crack down, "if you hire these people, you will get busted if we find you."

I agree.
The government should go after the employer, have them pay what they would have had to in social security, income, and medicare taxes, if would have hire them legally, along with whatever fine they might assess.

In answer to the question,

I wonder how (else) they get to be multi millionaires on a low six figure job in one of the most expensive areas in the county?

A million bucks apiece would only be $535 million, barely a day's take for the cartels but you only have to buy off half...+1.
