"....Ronald Reagan legalized border crossing in the early eighties to increase cheap labor and break American unions. Reagan changed border crossing to an "Administrative Fault" and this is why when an undocumented worker is caught, there is no arraignment, hearing, trial, fine etc. and they are either released or returned to Mexico.

This issue of "Administrative Fault" is the single reason for the immigration problem we face today but no one ever talks about it. The Mexicans are caught in the middle between Republicans who thump their chest over "Border Security" and the same Republicans who legalized border crossing for cheap labor. It is simply not illegal for Mexicans to cross our border without documentation and Republicans and their wealthy supporters are playing both ends of the issue..."

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
