I believe that immigration from the South is a fine example of where capitalism fails. Above setting up a Berlinesque wall between the U.S. and Mexico and treating them like criminals, I believe there should simply be stricter regulation on the wages and exploitation of immigrants, particularly illegal immigrants. The ways in which they’re viewed and treated by society, and paid a literal fraction of any sort of ethical minimum wage is a modern form of slave labor and should be treated as such. It is a horrific injustice to human rights and the general belief that we should care for our fellow human. An easier, hastier method of granting immigrants citizenship must be implemented as soon as possible.

Anger over jobs being “stolen” by immigrants should be more accurately directed at the international corporations that ship good paying jobs that most Americans can fill overseas. Outsourcing technical/customer support jobs and a wide range of general industrial occupations is more of a burden on Americans than a contractor looking for cheap labor. In essence, American business should be more regulated and kept in line, given their gross record of indecency.
