Or else something a lot less extreme. Just have them returned home.

It's been tried BUT somehow they just can't get it they are not allowed to jusrt waltz back over the border. As they ARE CRIMINALS the moment they cross illegally then doing any other crime is worse off. Now IF you just end it with a bullet then any of them with 1/2 a brain will get the message.

Deport illegals for auto theft? - Mayor Tom Menino (http://www.myfoxboston.com/dpp/morning/state-of-the-city-mayor-tom-menino-20110714 - broken link)

I really am looking forward to moving away from this state when I am financially able to do so.

It is such a pity because I was born here and I love Boston but I am done with this BS!

of course they should not be deported, at least not until they have been banded and branded. then it would be easy to pick out the criminal aliens coming back illegally.

Don't hold your breath for an answer. I also posed a question under another topic about "if" we legalized those who are felony free, not doing a job that an American would do, how about we pull equal numbers from different ethnic groups to be able to stay diversified and fair and send the rest back home? The silence was deafening.

Note that c-nuts has everyone who disagrees with her on ignore, so her posing questions to the opposition actually holds no meaning.

How is refering to all illegals as criminals treating them as subhumans? I agree some radicals spout killem all rhetoric but not most or even many of the so called pro enforcement crowd.
How is holding them acountable for their crimes mistreating them?
The speeding analogy thats used so often. is it mistreatment to make the caught violater pay the posted fines?
What about legal citizens or residents caught commiting fraud or ID theft?
The real issue is some dont feel deportation fits the crime as a punishment inspite of the fact a legal VISA holder would more than likely be deported for any number of the crimes the average illegal commits. If one is to believe the restrictions and warnings given a person here on say a tourist VISA. Like working without the correct VISA or documentation.
What about operating a vehicle without a license or insurance?
Is it treating a legal Immigrant or VISA holder as subhuman?

Conjecture is fun. Do you have proof or evidence that they will go on to commit the crimes they committed to get work?
Do you have any proof that they won't? Other than wishful thinking, of course.

How many legal immigrants are committing id fraud, etc right now?
Good question, since being illegal we have no way of accurately counting them. So tell me, how many are there?

You do realize that "going back" and being deported are two different things, right?
