Perhaps, and this is just a suggestion, you might consider "quoting" the post you are responding to - makes it a little easier on us "old guys"

Uhm...sorry, where's the logic? If the US is supposed to be the world police, fighting genoicde, then can it really endorse genocide in it's own country, just because it would solve some American problems?

Here's the deal:
Deporting them costs money, and as you say- they'll come back anyway, which means you're going to have to re-deport them over and over again. This costs money.
But, putting them in jail for the same costs, that's no option?
Endorsing the death penalty, which is genocide if repeatedly used for only one kind of people and also MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE than just putting them in jail for the rest of their lives, is a much better option?


How come it's us, non-hating people on this forum that are supposed to be the mad people?

This was a great post, I really hope Americans don't seek physical harm. I hope they are just venting, this country is violent enough with 2 wars and enemies all over the place. Mexicans are not our enemies.

Look at Elvira Arellano, she was caught and ordered deported back in 1997, then snuck back in again and was convicted in 2000 of using false social security number. Now when they finally have the courage to enforce the law they don't upgrade her crime to a felony, they just take her to the border and release her using the original 1997 deportation order.
