Our borders are a virtual sieve

It is scandalous that Congress has turned our borders into a virtual sieve. While we cannot blame those individuals who wish to come here for the opportunity to support their families, they are obligated to do it legally. A cursory look at who is picking crops in our nations farms will reveal that there are very few of us who want to work in that back-breaking environment. That poses an obvious problem--Oregon farmers and other businesses need a large workforce, so we are going to need to import the necessary amount of workers to fill these jobs. It only makes sense to give those workers an opportunity to come here legally--while kicking out all the ones who think the law does not apply to them.

In conjunction with the mass exodus of all those who are here illegally, we should put the appropriate defenses in place to make sure the only people we allow across our borders are those who want to play by the rules. Why does that seem so complicated?
