It wouldn't even take 72 hours before the illegals were stampeding for the border.

I would even take DNA from illegals, give them a life-time interdiction, and ban their descendants for 7 generations from entering the US.
It could work. I think an easier option would be announcing that the next illegal alien found will be hanged publicly and will be the regular punishment for being in this country illegally. That would cause quite a few of them to get out, although not a huge amount... That is until we call their bluff. I'd support it.

Yes, I'm sure you could also create a huge decrease in speeding if you shot speeders in the head, too.

Georgia unemployment is 9.8% higher than the national average, and our seasonal part time unemployment is around 15%.
Why would a prisoner want to pick cucumbers in the Georgia summer heat when he could sit in an air conditioned cell watching TV? If there's a choice, then why do it? Prisoners are not subject to the same whims of necessity as unemployed American's.

I don't believe using the prisoner argument exactly supports the "American's wont do it" argument at all.

There are millions of illegals in this country? YES / NO?
Those same illegals take advantage of our social services? YES / NO?
Those same illegals regularly kill Americans? YES / NO?
Those same illegals regularly drive on our roads without proper documentation, insurance or ID? YES / NO?
Those same illegals use our ERs like free clinics raising the cost of medical care for Americans? YES / NO?

Please, I would love for you to explain a NO vote on any of those points so I can put you in your place.

No hold the employers accountable for their crimes. make the penalty stiff enough so that its no longer cost effective or worth the risk to break the law.

Your spoiler is valid....
However imagine how much worse speeding would be if we didnt enforce the law or did it to the same degree we enforce immigration laws.
What if the fines were slight say $5.00? No deterent what so ever.
There is no need to kill the criminals simply hold them accountable when they are caught.

Who said anything about destroying the USA? We need to secure our borders and I mean really secure our borders. Is that destructive or beneficial to our country? Name one thing that would fight illegal immigrations that would also destroy America.
