$94billion, thatís less than half of Kennedyís bar tab for the year. The savings for education alone would make up that much in one semester.
If thatís all it takes start rounding them up.

Immigration is a net drain on the economy; corporate interests reap the benefits of cheap labor, while taxpayers pay the infrastructural cost. FAIR research shows "the net annual cost of immigration has been estimated at between $67 and $87 billion a year.

Obviously we wiill be saving a ton of money if we get rid of all the illegal immigrants!

If our Gov't would only enforce the laws it wouldn't cost anything, they would leave the same way they got here. Give them a set time to be out of the country, anyone caught here illegal after that time will be arrested and put on the chain gang. These people would leave in droves.

I think you have a good idea there. As well, put about 20 Mexicans in a wooden crate with a parachute and push them out the back. We may be able to put more of them in the box, as they are used to stuffing themselves into small spaces to illegally enter our country anyway. Sardines have nothing on homie..

Remember, we don't have to deport all of them. If we make it painful enough millions will leave on their own.

For example, make it legal to seize all their assets. It's ill gotten gains anyway. Seize them with RICO type corruption laws. To ensure local government cooperation just make sure the local governments get half the seized monies. Take their autos, paychecks, search their houses for their money stashes. Take their furniture and sell it on the street like they do at a garage sell.

And the ones we have to jail to deport don't need a fancy federal facility. All we need to do is set up a series of tent city jails like Sheriff Joe Arpaio does down in Maricopa County, Arizona. All it will cost is about a buck or two a day for the nasty sandwiches they serve.

We could even make a month out of it. Illegal alien freedom month. September maybe, that would be a good month for it.
