Who needs a border fence?

Could the manipulation of the economy into a pit of despair really be an under-the-radar way of addressing the illegal immigration problem?

I’ve joked about this from time to time, but it ain’t all that funny. Once in conversation I noted that it was similar to cutting down on the burglary problem by burning down all the houses.
