What's your suggestion to deport illegals? or stop illegal immigration?
Its a concern we all share from public cost to crime.

Enforce all the laws. Also up the fine on those who bring in and employ illegals. At least $10,000 to $20,000 each illegal, plus some prison time for employers and traffickers of illegals. Deportation also and cutting off government handouts.

You can garner as many suggestions as you like, but you don't really need them. There are already long-standing laws in place to address the issue. The problem is that they are not enforced. In order for them to be adequately enforced, politicans on either side of the aisle will need to step up to the plate. Neither side is willing to do that. The issue will continue to be brushed under the carpet.

Deport illegals and put employers who hire them out of business for good. I don't care if they hired them knowingly or un-knowingly. I'm sure if we enforced something like that it'd make employers make damn sure they're hiring someone legal.


But it doesn't matter because until one of the party's want to actually do something about it we're all going to have to deal with it.

Enforce the laws already in the books, make businesses hiring illegals pay fines $500,000 per illegal, and make citizenship only available to children of citizens and permanent resident who have naturalized

Cut them off from all benefits and they will leave on their own and stop coming.

No jobs
No school for their kids
No non-emergency medical care
No nothing

If you stop feeding a stray dog it will stop coming on your property.

It's no secret what should be done. Who's going to start? That's the question. We all know what needs to be done here. It never should have gotten out of hand in the first place!

#1. SECURE THE BORDER.

Which means put the national guard on it. There's more than one reason to keep out illegals, there's a drug war being waged as well. They're tunnelling under the border and smuggling drugs in also.

Put the military on the southern border, build a wall, put the military on it, build a wall, put the military on it.

#2. Go back and look over that 14th amendment. There is no reason why 4 million plus plus plus babies born to illegals should be US citizens. They should be repatriated to the nation of origin of their PARENTS. UNLESS one parent is a U.S. CITIZEN. If they're born here they're the nationality of their parent, not a U.S. citizen unless they have a citizen parent.

#3. Go over the books - roll back all payments to illegals and payments to children of illegals. They have no financial support, they leave. They will deport THEMSELVES.

#4. Any landlord who rents to illegals should have their property confiscated. PERIOD. END OF STORY. DON'T LIKE IT, JUST TRY TO SUE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Renting to an illegal should be on the same level with treason.

#5. TIME TO BEGIN DEPORTATIONS:

Starting with the jails - Just like Castro sent his trash here on a boat, go through the jails and send them back WHETHER THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN IS READY OR NOT. SEND THE TRASH BACK WHERE IT CAME FROM.

In L.A. it's very easy to spot an illegal. They're primarily day laborers. If they don't have citizenship papers, start loading them up and shipping them back.

Make it a requirement that to get a job here you have to have Identity Check, whatever that federal program they were going to start, needs to be started.

Make the penalties stiffer for people who hire them. And ENFORCE THEM.

No more sanctuary cities. You want to harbor illegals, you don't get any federal funding.

No more sanctuary policies. If you're a church and you want to harbor illegals (as many churches are famous for doing). YOU LOSE YOUR NON PROFIT STATUS AND PAY A HUGE FINE AND PAY TAXES PERMANENTLY.

Crack down on these "so called" immigrant rights groups that are nothing more than communist fronts for political organizations that want to overthrow the federal government.

It's time to crack down on this mess.

Why so complicated? It is so simple to solve this issue. No need to publish employers, no need to publish illegals either. Just do this one simple thing and you can enjoy the benefits.

Anybody here illegally must go back to their home country and wait for 10 years before eligible to apply for visa or immigration. That means their children may not sponsor them before the 10 years end.

Problem is, that no matter what the public at large thinks about this subject does not really matter, and who really is in favor of immigration, no one i know is.

However if those we elect to Power, Democrats or Republicians, refuse to acknowlwdge that we have a huge immigration criris on our hands, what the hek can we do. We can scream till we are blue in the face, write, email, make phone calls, as i have, doesn't matter one iota.

You would seem to think that those that we do elect in Power would care about such a negative impact that illegal immigrants have on our economy, and the cost, the educating those who do not speak English, and the crime elelment that is associated with some illegal's. Neither Party seems to really give a damn about this problem, and it makes me sick, both parties have failed us royally, and because of this fact, i really have no respect for either of the lesser evils.

How can one praise either party, when illegal immigration has such a negative impact on our Society, am i nuts, or does Illegal, mean to any of you what i seem to think it means, that illegal is breaking the law!

If the economic benefits for illegal entry were removed, the problem would end. Of course, that would require dismantling the socialist entitlement system.
Not going to happen soon.
So we'll have to wait till after the collapse of the United States government.
