5. I do believe you have a point there.
Richardson's a border governor who has to deal with this problem on a day to day basis. I thought his answer on this issue was excellent.

Problem is he's not going to win any brownie points with anyone with this approach. The anti-immigrant build a wall types aren't going to hear that walls don't work. The cheap labor, let 'em in advocates would bristle at real enforcement of labor laws and I'm pretty sure Mexico isn't going to be thrilled about being told to stop dumping it's excess workers on us.

I like Bill a great deal. I'm hoping he picks up some momentum after this good debate performance.
