It figures.
Its about having random checkpoints. The same way the check peoples bags in NYC.

Would you have millions of people go unchecked at the airport?

I disagree. The primary definition of "Police" is "maintain order, enforce the law, and prevent and detect crime." The laws they are enforcing are those within their assigned jurisdiction. If an alien is inside our borders, that is a breach of laws upheld by the US Department of Homeland Security -- Border Patrols.

Our municipal police have enough on their plate without charging them with federal responsibilities, as well.

DHS is not a police force in our communities.

Police are supposed to protect & serve.

Illegal aliens break our laws by being here and the cops need to tag 'em to.

I don't see it as being a burden to the police when during a lawful stop and the suspect can't produce I.D. to call ICE. One phone call is a burden?

Nah did not work.

So we are back to they won't leave because we wish it.

So where are we going to get the billions from to do this? And the personnel?
Possibly from the relief on the social and medical system by removing all of the illegal draws on the system? Of course that would not occur to one such as you favoring entitlements as you seem to. Eliminating the problem eliminates the cost so that the monies can be used in a more productive manner like supporting citizens.

The police already have the right, SCOTUS ruled as such 4 or 5 years ago. Illegals also have the right to refuse to answer.

You have seen the ultimate motivator of self deportation. A really lousey econmy. I believe we lost 8% or so here in Las Vegas. And most of those went somewhere else in the US.

So given that no jobs does not send them home you have some other tool?

You really need to face reality. They are here for the long haul and unless you can tap some large source of funding that is how it will be.

You need to stay real. They will not leave becuause you wish it.
They have no right to stay because you wish it, either. You need to stay real. Enforcing the immigration laws would deport all of the illegals. Then use the monies that they leech out of us to secure the borders. Problem solved, except for people like you who seem to just love living with law breakers.

They are not my illegals and I would willing send them all home were it in my power.
Then why do you show them more love than for your country? Claim that they have rights that they don't? Have you even done anything except support them to get rid of them?

Yes, they are your illegals until you take some actual action to get rid of them.

Now spread your BS again...Nobody is buying it.
