I saw this article and found it really fascinating. There are so many arguments today that you cannot deport illegal immigrants when we know from previous history that is simply not true.

It's about time we get serious about the illegal immigrants invading our country. It doesn't matter if your Democrat/Republican we need to start looking out for our own people and enforce laws. In fact I cannot understand why our government is not enforcing the laws to begin with?

Hoover, Truman & Ike: Mass Deporters?

Does anyone know what president stopped immigration for a period of time? I remember hearing that awhile back and cannot find information on it.

I couldn't find anything specific and the laws/actions were just all over the place:

Historical Timeline - Illegal Immigration Solutions - ProCon.org

We have to remember that legal immigration was allowed as needed to build the country. With the illegals coming in now, it is a whole different story since they are destroying the country and I did notice that legal immigration was halted from some areas because they were trying to limit the chance that we would be overrun by communist. I think there was concern that the country would be taken over which is a real concern with the illegals entering the country now and ISIS as they are trying to take over the country and/or destroy it.

It's very hard, even now, to get numbers on people who are illegal and avoid account. It's also very difficult to enforce deportation when large corps lobby to keep them here.

You might be thinking of Calvin Coolidge.

Thank you, it looks like he had a very strict immigration policy. He said this in 1924.

“We are all agreed, whether we be Americans of the first or of the seventh generation on this soil, that is not desirable to receive more immigrants than can reasonably be assured of bettering their condition by coming here. For the sake both of those who would come and more especially of those already here, it has been thought wise to avoid the danger of increasing our numbers too fast. It is not a reflection on any race or creed. We might not be able to support them if their numbers were too great. In such event, the first sufferers would be the most recent immigrants, unaccustomed to our life and language and industrial methods. We want to keep wages and living conditions good for everyone who is now here or who may come here. - See more at: Madison Project » The Veiled Anti-American Sentiment of Open Borders Politicians

“As a nation, our first duty must be those who are already our inhabitants, whether native or immigrants.” -

Or when one of the 2 major parties is solidly against deportations. Or when the President cooks the books and protects illegals.
