Not sure of the exact wording; all we need to do is copy Mexico's laws concerning illegal immigration into their country and apply them-------I guarantee that La Raza, et al would be screaming.

But; their pathetic attempt to use the 'race' card would truly make the above advocate groups look foolish.

The amount of money we will have saved by not having to staff as many ESL classes in schools, not having these illegals deplete our social services and medical services will offset this amount.

You're right...100% right. We should do as Mexico does; the Mexican government is so hypocritical. Ugh.

$94 billon ...well lesseee, my town has already spent $1.4 billion on new classrooms and is proposing $2 billion more. So if you go around the country and add all that up, we would see a huge savings and a big drop in our taxes.

I doubt our taxes would ever go down, but the surplus would go a long way in building and improving roads, sewers, power grids, etc, etc, etc.

Yeah, it would be nice if the government, federal and states, would actually spend some money on the middle class Americans who support this country.

Just the fact that employers would have to hire Americans would mean an economy that would start building from the day of the last illegal kicked out of our country. The same could be said about all of those things now made in China and Mexico, badly I might add. If we would get back to manufacturing and growing what we need or use and eat then, and only then, if there was a real need the government could allow visas and the poor third worlders for mseasonal work. This country would again be booming after only a few years of getting back to depending on ourselves.

Default Cost to deport them $0

All states crack down on illegal hires like Oklahoma and Arizona and the cost to deport would be closer to nada. They would self deport! And even if it cost a few dollars the amount recouped by savings in health care and schooling would still leave a huge surplus in the state and federal budgets.
