But that is for CBP to figure out (and, through the work we've been doing with them, I can tell you they have PLENTY of electronic solutions.. many of which are underfunded or completely shut down as a result of budget cuts).

But we can NOT justify legislation to legalize anyone who wants to cross our porous border and expect that will somehow solve problems... and if we say "hey anyone who wants to come here is welcome", we're ringing the dinner bell not to the poor and tired who want to work for a living.. but for those living in situations far worse than a life of welfare here in the US... and that's the last thing our nation needs. It's not a shot in the arm.. it's a shot to the side of the bow that is our deficit.
