Agreed, I believe that E-Verify should be mandatory for all employers. So does 2/3 of the country, including 83% of Republican, 68% of Independent, and even 53% of Democratic Likely Voters. For the racial breakdown, that's 70% of Whites, 52% of Blacks, 69% of Hispanics, and 64% of Others. (That Hispanic number goes a long way to explain why the Democrats' open border policy isn't necessarily the major draw for Hispanic voters they think it is.)
You have incredibly wrong perceptions of what those establishment Democrats represent and what international socialists and democratic socialists represent. You are just plain wrong Doug.
First of all, the establishment Democrats like Harris don't want open borders. They want controlled borders but they also have to consider the needs of greedy employers who love hiring people with no authorization to work because in certain jobs like this Chicken farm etc they can't find American workers willing to work. There is a myth out there where Americans think there are jobs that American people who are looking for work are willing to do. Most people won't work badly paid with no benefits jobs and the ones who are willing? Already are working the jobs. Now the issue is about COVID 19 and people who get paid better on unemployment. No one wants to be exploited. Not the Latino workers and not the American workers. But? The employers who hire the ones who don't have authorization know they can't fill the positions with the legal American work force. If they could do it without a problem they would have.
My solution is to raise wages in Mexico and Central America. That is the only way to stabilize the situation. The Dems and the Repubs are in the pockets of these very crooked employers. Otherwise? This e-verify thing would have worked a long time ago. It is not working because there is not enough labor department enforcement and the richest of the corporations who pay off politicians have the last word there. If you don't understand that it is not my problem. I am interested in having all the Latin Americans stay home. Get paid decent wages. But that is not reality. They have nothing to lose by jumping into the USA on refugee status visas. Cubans get there with political persecution visas. They can stay in Mexico free of political persecution. They never do because the truth is they need to make money and get higher wages and professional educations so they can be paid decently. That is the reason they are immigrants. Poverty. Not enough jobs. Do you want to solve the problem? Pressure the corporations paying people $1 to $2 dollars an hour in Mexico and Central America. The PRC pays MORE than the minimum wage in Mexico, Central America does. Why? Study Latin American labor fights. Multinationals and corporations don't want wages to go up. They are making money. They are incredibly powerful people with lobbyists in Washington DC and control both the Democratic politicians and the Republican ones. You got corrupt bought-off assholes running your nation and letting it happen. So concentrate on them.
Persecuting some low-wage workers who flee Latin America's cities because they have no urban skills in Latin America and fill jobs Americans can't do and then you don't see how the E-Verify doesn't work because the politicians are do-nothings is not a solution Doug.
Solve the issue on the economic core level. The only ones who know how to extract some money and put these corporations in their place? Socialists and far-left people. But you hate us. So you won't ever get a solution.
Thems the breaks.
Most Mexicans are not even going to the states. The ones going there are Hondurans and Salvadorans, and Guatemalans. Nicaraguans aren't going, neither are Panamanians or Costa Ricans. Neither are the regular seasonal workers and it is costing Alabamans bucks and problems. Rotting veggies and so on and lost taxes and revenue. Look at this:
It is not just Alabama it is New York, New Jersey, and many more.
Indians with options:
The USA has issues because it doesn't educate the number of people it needs. Why? Lack of investment in training and education that is affordable. It is wasting people and the USA has a lot of drug consumption and people with very little preparation for the skills involved in many types of jobs. A lack of investment in many ways is going to transform the USA. Educate the brown ones and stop the bullshit, Doug. I think your writing on this subject is seriously flawed and ignorant.
I don't give a damn about the need to keep America white. Give it up. That is over.
You are not going to keep the well educated professionals. You are making ignorant decisions. Again the applications for becoming new American citizens are from four major nations. China, India, Cuba and Mexico. That is it. There are a lot of others from Africa and the Middle East. But England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Holland, France, Germany, and Denmark, etc, and Norway, Sweden and Finland, and Russia is not that many of them coming really. It has stabilized.
Get over the bullshit and concentrate on educating the big four and their kids there. And make good decisions about decent workers contributing. If you want to destroy the USA? The essential workers (many of them are not white people Doug). Hispanics want what? They want good-paying jobs. They are not here without authorization but if you keep attacking their communities, their relatives in Mexico, and their relatives in Central America and think Juan Gonzalez born in 2002 and going to University this year and is a citizen and he is getting frisked and stopped and asked to prove he is not Juan Gonzelez the border jumper? You will wind up with pissed-off people who think there is something wrong with the system.
Educated people with temp status and nonpermanent status can book on out of the USA. To find the ones who will tolerate the red tape, and then some government full of hostility and bullshit and some dummy people thinking that the USA is so great that all the other nations are static and stopped waiting for the American Dream. A lot of them in these places got some options. It is not what you think it is.
