Is this worth the time, effort and cost. Would you want your taxes to pay for all the prison beds that will be required as this program moves into New Mexico and Arizona.
Yes whatever it takes....many of them have criminal records so have been in bad prisons in Mexico, they will need to be on a chain gang like 'Cool hand Luke' to get the point maybe, but they must all be deported ASAP and to do this we must vote the right cadidate in office in '08.

Neither are its laws regarding "foreigners getting mixed up in politics" or even street demonstrations of any politically-charged issue, or even publically COMMENTING on them. Legally, any of these can mean instant jail time, followed by swift deportation. See any differences with OUR system?...

just as the illegals say, try try try again.....deport them when they are discovered, and send them back to where they came from...
one, two three times...whatever..if they are caught committing a crime (other than being here illegally) then, let the law apply...the same laws that apply to citizens(jail times. fines) then deport them again.
any price to secure our borders is a good cost for me.

Help them? Yes. As in Arizona, organize tent prisons for illegals near the border, build a crosswalk 'back across that border' within view of that tent prison, let them do their time with the only prison exit available that crosswalk across the border. DNA samples will be useful for future prosecution.

That would be 'helping' with a short two foot walk home. I guess we could even throw in some OSHA compliant strollers for those 'almost born Texan' babies.

I say go one step further and microchip the ones we deport. Scan the ones we catch; if they're chipped, we know they're a re-entry. Throw their butts in a prison camp for a while, let 'em think about what they did.

I can dream, anyway.

Wow....

I can't think of anything worse than that honestly, imagine the world uproar America would have to answer to?

If you want to treat people like animals then you should be ready to be bitten, besides Hitler tried that once.

I find your thoughts, disgusting.

I don't care what you think of my thoughts. I really, truly, honestly do not care. You disagreeing with me certainly isn't going to ruin my day or keep me up at night. You must understand this.

I'm sick of my country being invaded. If these illegals had not broken into my country, there wouldn't be a problem. Comparing my viewpoints to those of Hitler is sophistical and has just lost you the argument.

Have a super day.

It appears some of the efforts are working to keep folks who should not be here who are attempting to relocate from south of the border. See the attached article from the New York Times:

A human being crossing the border is not synonymous with the neighbors dog coming in your yard.

Again with the invasion axiom, how is it an invasion when our government allowed them to enter and our companies hire them, our banks give them loans, our auto dealerships allow them to buy a car? If more elements of our country allow them to live here, then is that really an invasion?
