I would like to know what we do with the newly unemployed illegals. (resulting from the new laws that crack down on the employment of the illegal aliens. ) All discussion of the topic of illegal immigration needs to end until we solve this question.
We send them home, of course. It is not our responsibility to provide for them.

Correct. They made the choice to come here illegally. Its on them when their illbegotten plans fail.

Maybe immigration enforcement has some unintended consequences. I have never seen a real honest discussion about what to do about the illegal aliens after they are fired in mass due to a new State law cracking down on employers.
It wouldn't really be that difficult. Americans are armed to the teeth. Criminals are criminals. If the illegals turn to crime in even more numbers than they all ready have or if they begin to riot in the streets law enforcement may have to deputize citizens again.

We just have to come to terms with the fact that we have been invaded by a foreign army. Illegal aliens have killed more Americans than al-queda has. We need to mobilize the army, marines, national guard and reserves. It could and can be done. In fact, I'll bet there are many here that would gladly volunteer their services to defend this nation. Besides, if we can spend a billion dollars a day in Iraq we can certainly spend it in the US rooting out criminals and making our streets safe again.

How will armed Americans determine who these illegal aliens are? What a bunch of naive postings so far. I am a critic of illegal immigration as much as anyone but I still hold back until I understand what we will do if huge numbers of them are unemployed due to employer crackdowns.

I do not believe anyone actually expects a mass deportation. So lets be real. Ideas please about what we can do about all the newly unemployed illegals after strict employer rules against illegals.

We will find out soon enough what we as Americans are made out of as a people.

D) Get rid of the "anchor baby" law

E) No bank accounts if one is here illegally

F) No Drivers license if one is here illegally

G) Allow landlords the right to refuse to those here illegally

In other words, make it untenable to be in this country illegally - by doing so MANY will return to their country of origin (or elsewhere) on their own -

Deport those who do not go
Good lord! A person with common sense! No was that so difficult folks?

Don't you guys think if they were all deported the illegals there would be some sort of immediate economic unrest?

I would love to see ILLEGAL ALIENS up in arms, fighting LEGAL AMERICANS. This would be the biggest joke in history, and you better bet your ass that we would be up in arms.

Why do you think it will be short..? Who will we get to cover the jobs that illegals hold? Those fruit picking machines I don't believe they will be here in time.
