We need to do something to disincentivize illegal immigration without putting the lives of Americans or those desperately seeking a better life at risk.

This number doesn’t even figure in the cost of maintaining and patrolling it every year. John Thomas MILLIONS of jobs being lost to automation, AI and Robotics..for which millions of low-skilled immigrant labor is useless and obsolete, and whatever jobs will be left for our blue-collar Americans will have to compete for jobs, political power, and resources with these swarms of non-English speaking low skilled immigrant masses.

Not even in your right-wing source.
