Stupid question. Why would we deport those potential Democrat voters?

I agree, and they should not be allowed any public programs what so ever.

get into our country? Certainly, but let's plug all the holes we can and make it harder for them to get into this country.
Yes to all of this.

If there are no jobs for them and no government help for them they will leave on their own. There would be a mass exodus of illegals leaving. Also, not granting citizenship to babies born here to an illegal mother would definitely help. This action alone would make people thinking of coming here just for that reconsider.

Also, there is simply not enough jobs for everyone. These people come here with no or low skills. How many dish washing jobs need to be filled? How many construction jobs need to be filled? How many warehouse jobs need to be filled? How many hotel maid jobs need to be filled? It's obvious the new-era illegal comes here for the handouts.

To me, that is the humanitarian thing to do. Sure it will cost a lot, but so will the new border security that I want to see as well. And by that I mean a million more heavily armed border troops, electronic measures and drones patrolling 24/7.

We have to get this thing under control if our country is to have any future. And illegals caught are immediately returned but no one gets through.


what the hell is undocumented?

throw all criminal illegal aliens out of the USA. also any child born here can go to until the are 18 or are emancipated from their parents, or are willing to be adopted to a resident of the USA.

They are potential voters for the Democrats. It would be crazy to deport them, losing those votes.

so what you are saying, is the dems cannot win an election with having criminal illegal aliens helping them, or without people voting more than once to help dems get elected.


GREAT

Give them money and return them home? Ah, no! Since they broke the law, have no respect for our laws, no application for citizenship.

The humanitarian thing to do is stop them from coming into the country but that won't happen because they are a source of cheap labor. It is just a fact that this could have been gotten under control a LONG time ago but that the elected officials simply refuse to serve the legal citizens and for some reason that I will never understand, people keep voting the same losers in election after election. Cheap labor/votes - makes them all happy!

At this point, I wouldn't mind the government giving me and my family a free ride to another country along with some money to set up.

No one that breaks the law should be rewarded. E-verify alone would work wonders and makes a rule that anyone in the country illegally that gives birth gives birth to an illegal immigrant.
