This is exactly what I was thinking!

I expected to open this thread and read a sob story about how we just can't live without them. It was a pleasant surprise to read the opposite. I am all for losing 20 million illegals!

What would happen?
It would create a vacume. A vacume that would be filled. Those who made a profit from illegals would be lost. This is not a bad thing. This would be a good thing.
Some say the cost of living would increase. It might but by how much? No one knows because no one knows how many illegals actually are here and or contributing. What we do know for a fact is that illegals cost the tax payer big bucks. What we also know is that many many Citizens numbering in the thousands have been victimized by illegals. Some suffered ID theft, some victims of drunk drivers, unlicensed and uninsured drivers, many have actually been killed. We have rape victims, children have been molested.
All victims of crimes that could have and should have been prevented by simply securing the border.
Do contractors pass on the savings they gained by using illegals? Doubtful at best, more than likely they simply pocket the savings and call it good.
Produce. Well we here this a lot. But I read somewhere that only 24% of all illegals work in agriculture. That would mean that 15 million are taking jobs other than picking fruit and vegetables.
It might hurt for a short term but in the long term we will benefit.

If ONLY we could test out the theories by EJECTING all these scum (that are only poor hard working SOBs here for a "better life").

Maybe if they DID all leave then the rest of US could have the "better life" without THEM.

I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, "Mexican Visitor's Lament"- 10/25/07.

I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, "illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What Happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?" Hummm, I thought, what would happen, so I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.

It's a good question it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America ? The answers I found may surprise you!

In California , if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico , it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado , 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grand-kids would move back 'home', mostly to Mexico . That would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% drop-out/flunk-out rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado . Denver 's 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida , 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America , the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago , Illinois , 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home', the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our over-crowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A. , 20,000 members of the ' 18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!



America's economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America 's economy which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt.

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California , Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of ourgreenhouse gases.

Over one million of Mexico's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.



The New York Times reported them to be America 's new ' Third World ' inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona ; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)



By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico . We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico . We already invite a million people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation. It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

Interesting Statistics!
Very interesting indeed! I hope that you post this on many sites and very frequently.

Spreading this around widely is a patriotic thing to do; revealing hard, cold facts about the criminal invaders' impact on our people.

The recent deluge of tear jerker sob stories about the "poor, heart broken immigrants" in the mainstream media must be counteracted by real truths.

1) Not even the Justice Department is stating that there are 20 million illegal aliens in the US,OP. More like 12 million.
2) Since rounding aliens and deporting would cost as much ,if not more, than leaving them in place,why would there be a rush to spend more than we are currently doing?
3) HOW could they all be rounded up? This logistical and legal nightmare is never addressed by anybody complaining about immigration.
4) What would happen when an American citizen (something that is certain to happen) is either detained or deported due to a "mistake" made by the government?

There are many more "what if's" in removing illegal aliens from the US,but since none of the above are even being addressed,then it's doubtful that this is even being seriously considered by the government.

Well, what would a country normally do if it were suddenly faced with 12 million invaders occupying it's territory?

Mobilize our armed forces and repel them.... That is why we have a military in the first place.....

Make no mistake. Whether it is 12 or 20 million makes no difference. It is an invasion. In fact, since this behavior seems to be sanctioned by the Mexican government, it could be viewed as an act of war.

1) You are seriously suggesting using military force against unarmed civilians?
2) When they come back..which some will...what then? Kill them?
