Hmmm... how's that cracking down on illegals doing for our bottom line?

Oh... and this $5.1B is being paid to private companies and is costing TWICE as much per immigrant/day than when the gov't housed them.

How's that shrinking gov't doing for our bottom line?

Our government should be sending bills to the countries of origin for these people not only for their room, board & maint. but also for their deportation.

Don't suppose that those countries would pay those fines? I read somewhere once that some immigrants would not divulge which country that they came from so that they couldn't be deported. Even in the cases where the United States officials KNEW that the immigrants came from a certain country, the citizen country would deny it because they didn't want them back. We are a de facto dumping ground for the world's unwanted poor people.

We are for as long as we give them a better life on the backs of the US taxpayers via medical care, schooling, food stamps, and on and on ad nauseum.

Maybe instead of commissioning 30,000 drones for surveillance on US citizens Big Sis & DHS should concentrate drone use on our borders.

Tent cities. Build them in the desert close to the border.

Collect the $5.1B via fining those businesses who hire illegals.

Oh yeah, that's right, I forgot... illegals ARE big business, that's why there are millions of them still roaming around freely.

Jesus said it is not right to give the children's bread to the dogs.

As usual, the USA does the exact opposite. It feeds the dogs while the children starve.

I don't understand why we house them. Arrest them, check their status and put them on a bus back home.
