Are Illegal Immigrants Being Deterred From Leaving U.S.? - News Story - KFOX El Paso

Maybe fewer will sneak in if we tell them we won't let them ever leave, they can never go home again?

I know there are demonstrated benefits (criminals captured, stolen cars recovered...) to outbound checks but the bigger rights question is should/does the gov't have the right to detain & question people leaving the country? Maybe they get around it as a vehicle check. I've seen the check in vehicle lanes but not at pedestrian crossings.

Perhaps they will start having protests, burning flags just to leave now?

That would be ironic. If they do this enough there will be protests with illegals demanding their right to go home.

I think they should just let them go home. Some of my neighbors returned home to Mexico without anyone stopping them and throwing them in jail for trying to leave.

They simply self deported, they decided they missed life in Mexico and the bigger money here wasn't all they were after. They also decided they were happier being "legal" which they are as soon as they stepped foot in their own country.

Unless some violent crime has been committed and there's another reason to hold them and charge them, it seems best to me if they just move back on their own. I think if anything, they should be told forget an amnesty, and if they return home, they can go to the back of the line and start over the right way along with all those many others who have applied to come here legally but if they are caught staying here, then they will be formally deported and barred from legal reentry for 10 years.

Didn't Calderon blame the US for the weapons coming into their country? We all know lots of drugs are being brought in but do you actually think that money stays here? There must be checks and lots of them. If they aren't violent felons I say we let them self deport.

Unfortunately, history shows the reverse is true. Mexican migrant workers (in the true sense of the term - ie., following the crops) would enter the USA (whether legally on work visas or illegally, work the seasons and then return home. After the 1986 amnesty, with tougher border crossing rules (yes I know that sounds strange but it's true) more opted to just STAY in the USA rather than risk going home then not being able to re-enter the next crop season (for those without the required guest worker visas).
