The thing is, it's not their pie. We gathered the ingredients for the pie, we mixed the filling, we rolled the crust, we baked the pie, and we set it out to cool. The "pie" belongs to the legal citizens of the US.

We could very easily strip illegals of all property and assets. Just declare it illegal booty under RICO type laws. Then start grabbing them off of the street and put them on road gangs. If they stay they spend the next ten years on bread and water building roads out in the hot sun and they lose everything they have stolen from the American people. If they leave they can continue on with their lives in Mexico or where ever.

It would be very simple actually. We would just have to have the political willpower in Washington to do it.
Bingo, use them for labor to finish the wall along the border. Once the wall is completed attach 10,000 volts to it.

They are not entitled to a piece of the pie.

it would be less bloody if we did it diplomatically, as opposed to another civilian revolution.

This whole scenario reminds me of the story of the Little Red (white and blue) Hen.

Hen: Who will help me bake the pie?
Mexico: Not I!
El Salvador: Not I!
Brazil: Not I!

Then when the pie is baked, they all start clamoring for a piece.

I would gladly volunteer, no pay necessary.

you forgot the part where we killed a bunch of people to steal the oven. and i think we used immigrant labor to grow the ingredients and prepare the food. we just kind of eat it.

No, DEMANDING a piece and organizing protests when the slice isn't big enough for their liking.

legally? ok. but the laws are not the final say in what is just. thats why we repeal them and modify them. as a people, we learn from our mistakes, and we do make mistakes.
