Lol... really? Bill the family of illegals $200k to free that person? And if they don't? What else can we threaten them with that we're not already doing?
Cut off all foreign aid. If the majority of those elected to office would seriously mandate the cutting off of foreign aid to those countries with illegal aliens present in this country, I guarantee you said countries would put a stop to it, no matter what they had to do. As the old saying goes money talks and BS walks.

Cut all foreign aid to everyone anyway. Finally, something we can all agree on!

$5.1 Billion is still a bargain.

Who knows how many precious lives are saved because the criminals are incarcerated.

One less gang member, rapist, murderer, pedophile and/or drunk driver.

The problem with that is they simply return a couple of days later. Catch and deport is no more effective than catch and release. We both know that the enforcement, of the current laws on the books is a viable solution. If all else fails, money talks. Cutting off any and all foreign aid to the country of the illegal aliens coming here would ensure that the countries from which they hail will motivate them to keep their societal burdens within their respective homelands.
