I can dream, anyway.
I really like that idea! Then the three strikes rule for repeat offenders would kick in, right?

Liberals don't understand that spending money on punishment DISCOURAGES bad behavior, but spending money on transfer programs ENCOURAGES bad behavior.

Or maybe they don't understand that encouraging bad behavior means that costs will increase geometrically as everybody scrambles to take advantage of the new government program. Nobody wants to be in prison, but most people like to get free money.

Or maybe they just pretend to be oblivious to unintended consequences because it serves their agenda of destroying America.

What, prison or a mandatory lifetime ban? I think the mandatory lifetime ban should apply the second they re-enter the US.

Well I would like to think a life-time ban would work, but it's clear we are not very good at keeping illegals from entering our country, so I'd have to go with prison.

The prison idea is appealing to me more and more. If they are in jail they can't send money home. If they are in jail they can't reproduce so no more anchor babies. Living in severe poverty in their own country ought to look pretty danged good compared to living in jail. Especially if we can get Sheriff Joe to run all the jails!

Default If U Were In My Position...

first of all, Mexicans are not bad. They come from mexico to get up from their struggle. they have to risk alot of things in order to get here, but not to make anybody's life hard, infact were are here to make it easier by doing the jobs that "LAZY" people don't do theirselves. We do this without asking questions, getting mad, or slacking on the job. We do this because of the family we left back home, that are just waiting for us to come back, see all you people dont know what is like, having to leave the people u love so u can come here, and have people calling u an "alien". We are all people like u reading this right now, and i know for a fact if u had to risk ur life to cross the border in order to work for money, and putting food on ur families table i know anyone would do it, for the ones they love and woul risk their lives for.
So i gues if aliens are loving, respectful, hard working people then im a damn alien, and proud to be one!!!!
Alot of u think its a good idea putting innocent hard working people in jail, but wat if u were in my situation, my mom the woman i love so much in this world. just lost her job, her lawyer told her immigration might come to our house, can u immagine seing ur mom being carried away like sum crimminal for working here, and u just watching helplessly, and crying. I know for a fact that if all u were in the position u would all think differently about this situation........
THANK YOU FOR READING THIS..GOD BLESS YOU
sincerely; ALIEN SALGADO

Dear Alien Salgado,

Go home and ask the Mexican gov. why they do not provide a better standard of living for their citizens. Ask them where the money from Pemex goes. Ask them what happens to the money people pay in taxes. It is their responsibility to provide reasonable living conditions for the people of Mexico. Insist that they do so. Don't take no for an answer.

It may also scare some illegals from trying to get across the border because they will face prison time if caught.

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...prison beds are cheaper than the cost of supporting these illegals and the children they pump out every nine months!

Some people just don't know what compassion is. Yet if they were in the same situation, they would do exactly what the undocumented immigrants are doing.

If 80-90% of illegal immigrants (and their Anchor babies under age 18) left; attitudes would likely relax.

Till the above comes to pass: the hammer will continue to come down.

The above is a promise; not a threat.

I have no sympathy for Mexico's elite; if it means a revolution by the 'peons' for their rights SOB---------go for it!
