1% of previous workforce plus robots - that is wrong. Even with robots, they still require way more than 1% of the workforce that existed without robots. Statements like that are intentionally misleading. Just give the money to poor folk, sure, since that is a sustainable solution. The laws regarding ensuring all employees are legal isn't enforced and therefore mostly useless. Especially when states like California are trying to cater to these illegal immigrants. There is no motivation to keep them from working. The wall isn't a joke and it isn't just to keep people out from working. It is also to keep drugs and terrorists and as much bad out of this country as possible. Sure, it isn't perfect, but a sophisticated wall in combination with border enforcement would go a long ways to keeping illegal immigrants out. Something democrats have demonstrated repeatedly they have no desire to do. Just having Trump as president (vs Obama) has reduced the influx of illegals. Another problem with illegals, they don't all want to work, why work when you can get food stamps, healthcare, and education at taxpayer expense? The wall isn't solely about keeping illegal workers out. One thing the democratic party is passionate about is allowing as much illegal immigration as possible and not enforcing immigration law. If they shows even a fraction of the dedication to helping US citizens, we may have a different president. Most of the last eight years we did have a liberal at the top, so many of the problems we face are still from the previous administration. It is a different tone from Trump, he doesn't blame Obama for everything like Obama did blame Bush for everything for nearly his entire presidency. Liberals aren't currently running the country, but many of the problems (like illegal immigration) are a result from the Obama failure era.
