Thats what I'm saying.. its inefficient.

What difference does this make? We have Armenian, Korean, Japanese and Spanish TV stations too! That has to be the silliest thing on your whole list.

Aside from that, if you go to Snopes.com, you'll see that those things are NOT exactly facts.

Could you imagine the uproar from American citizens if this were to happen? (A door to door roundup of illegal aliens.) People would be SCREAMING if the police were going door to door and taking away everyone who couldn't PROVE, without a doubt, that they were legally here!

Good grief! People think it's an invasion of privacy now when they get ticketed for not wearing a seatbelt!

And we'd need places to hold the people that are illegal until we sent them back, and don't forget: Only 1/2 of the illegals are from Mexico. We'd have to fly the other half back to whatever countries they came from. This would cost billions, if not trillions, of dollars!!

Hillary is right. This is an idea that WILL NOT WORK!!

I didn't make the list genius, I just posted it. I would think it's obvious that part of it was irrelevant, but I guess you need it spelled out for you. Also, if you kept reading, the second link was from a myth busters website, and not only did it confirm the information, but said the actual numbers were higher. So yes, they ARE EXACTLY FACTS.

If they can't get hired, can't receive social services and can't have their offspring automatically become citizens, then they will self deport, costing us nothing. All we have to do is take away their free ride and their incentive for being here. The only thing the American people will be SCREAMING about is if 20 million criminals get rewarded with citizenship.

While that may be true, tax payers were not forced to fund immigrants lifestyles, their childrens education or their health care needs.
