U.S. Senate Agreement on Immigration Law Collapses

I've been following this story for some time now, and basically all I have seen is an argument about who can stay and who has to leave. This is a necessary subject that must be dealt with, but nowhere have I seen anything on securing our borders.
What good are a passel of laws dealing with illegals, if you cannot keep them out? The ones that do not meet the requirements are not going to go register and get deported, they will just try to stay hidden from the feds, the same as now. And if the borders are not secured, it just means more of them coming in to replace the ones you catch and deport.
If these politicians want to solve the problem of illegal immigration, I suggest they do what the military does in a hostile situation: secure the perimeter, then worry about setting up camp. Anything else fits the old cliche of arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

Wait for my next post on this where I responsd to a local lib blogger's call to "fix" the illegal immigration problem with a massive hike in the minimum wage.

Discouraging illegal immigration by offering them a raise.
