And do you know how much it costs to keep them here year after year? Maybe you should educate yourself on the subject.

As long as this number is not negative, then they will continue to break the law. Until we address the economic incentive to hire illegal labor, no amount of patrols or fences will make a dent in the issue.
Yup...

I have come to believe that nobody really cares. People complain about illegals but continue to buy from their employers. Shipley Donuts was raided by ICE. They had lots of illegals on their premises. They paid a fine. Houston still has lots and lots of Shipley donut sales. Ten years ago, Pappas restaurants was convicted of putting kitchen help on busses to avoid ICE. They paid a million dollar fine. Find out where your chicken and fish and produce are coming from.
We need to all stop patronizing folks who hire illegals. That includes most restaurants, food processors and builders.

1. We wouldnt have to deport them all if we went after the employers.
2. The fines an employer pays should = the average cost to deport.
3. We should sieze the assets of the illegals.
As we have seen in city and states that cracked down on illegals they will self deport.

States like Alabama are trying but the government does NOT care. California will give in-state tuition and student aid provided for by their taxpayers. That is also a magnet. Why is Obama not suing them? I wonder why?

Stop the magnets and they WILL leave.

Let us put a 10000 dollars penalty on the employer who hires an illegal person. Also put 10000 dollars fine on employer who hires a legal immigrant whose visa do not permit him to work (like student visa, visitor visa etc.)

10,000? You are being too nice.

100k MINIMUM PER illegal.

That should also assist in deportation costs!

FYI: Someone on a visitor's visa or a student visa is not considered an immigrant. A Green Card holder is.

You are both being to nice!


Seize all personal and business assets of anyone aiding and hiring illegal alien parasites, along with a 5 year stint in a federal prison, no parole or probation.

Ummmmmm................... because the cost of providing them healthcare, education, food stamps, and housing in prison far exceeds the cost of deporting them. Further, the presence of a labor force willing to work illegally below minimum wage drives down the wages and standard of living of working people, further eroding the tax base for the nation.

Next question please.
