If we would see reports like this on daily News more Americans would be more in line with enforce current Laws. Any who enters the country illegal or on a expired Vise should be deported.

The Deportation process should streamlined and the cost of deportation is the confiscation of property and assets the Illegal may have. Bill the country of origin for all medical or deduct the cost from any and all aid packages.

Oh get a grip!

A person's legal status has nothing to do with whether or not they commit crimes. You need to head examined.

That is why when a green card is applied for based on a marriage......the alien has to return to their country and enter legally.

Yes, it does by default they are breaking the law by just being here...But then again I am not the one defending criminals who have committed such horror crimes such as rape and murder who would not have been in this nation had the government done its job and secured the border...

ALL illegal aliens commit crimes. So please DON'T say illegal aliens ain't lawbreakers.

There is no such thing as an honest illegal alien. The term "law-abiding illegal alien" is an oxymoron.

RogersParkGuy---Do you have any flophouses filled with illegal aliens in YOUR neighborhood? Would you mind if the house next door to you became an illegal alien flophouse?

Perhaps if we enforced our immigration laws, said illegals who commit violent crimes would never have been in the country to begin with. Perhaps had we not released them from prison they wouldn't turn around and commit acts of drunk driving on our roads. Perhaps a few violent criminals would have been denied entry. You know after they failed the back ground check? Every illegal is a criminal. Not just some of them, but all of them.

Putting up border fences is a little like vermin proofing a structure. Yes, it can and perhaps will work for awhile, but if the rodents "know" there is something good on the other side sooner or later they will breech all but the strongest defences.

The southern border of the United States is simply too vast and in some areas porous (due to rivers, streams, etc...) to build anything but a fence unless it was like the Berlin Wall (several meters deep and very high). That wall didn't work, neither will a border fence with Mexico.

Everyone knows what will stop illegal immigration but few in government and or those that profit from the thing have the balls to see it done properly. Simply cut off the rewards for persons entering and or remaining illegally and then then the numbers drop.

Word is on the streets all over the world from deepest Africa to remote mountains of the Middle East/Asia. Get oneself to the United States by any means possible, and once arrived chances of being sent back are nil. The risk of deportation grows even less if you can pull at this or that heartstring (you are gay, a lesbian, transgender, have suddenly remembered some horrible thing that happened to you in your country, are married to an American citizen, have a child who is an American citizen, etc...

Nearly 90% of American immigration policy is subject to administrative discretion which means an illegals chances of being deported rest largely upon this or that judge, president, administration, head of INS/HLS, even simply who is conducting the interview at the border.

Look no further than Obama's own Aunt. How many crimes did she commit that would get a legal immigrant deported? Fraud is but one of them.
His Uncle???
36,000 illegals released from prison rather than deported.
