How about the theory that the rights granted by the Constitution were 
intended for actual citizens? I object to non-citizens having the same 
rights as citizens. If we were to welcome Mexican labor, give them each a 
verifiable identification, tax them at a higher rate, and not treat them or 
any other immigrants as citizens until they conform to the requirements for 
citizenship, we might be headed in the right direction? The current "system" 
which requires them to "fly under the radar" merely enables them to duck any 
other form of responsibility as well.
