  1. Gee, does the Government REALLY want to STOP the flow of Illegals coming to America? I think NOT. Here is HOW you DO it. Drug TESTING anyone receiving any MONIES from the TAX PAYERs, such as SOCIAL SECURITY disability, social security, UN-employment checks, WELFARE checks or food stamps, and Public Schools. NEXT, the other ONLY reason they come to America is JOBS, so Anyone who HARBORS a CRIMINAL, or a FUGITIVE from JUSTICE or gives these illegals a JOB, put them in JAIL, PRISON for 15 years like they did in Norwalk Ohio, FINE THEM $100,000.00 like they did in Norwalk Ohio.

    You SEE, government does not really want to STOP the Murders at the boarder or the overdose of our CHILDREN!
