The U.S. Border Patrol estimates a number about 6 times that high, with an additional million from the REST of South America...

heavy armed, defend border with force, huge impact in just a few weeks.
complete the fence, clean out our prisons and jails of ALL illegals
who came via sob and throw them back over the fence.
do illegal round-ups on regular basis, and boot them over the fence as well.

No doubt it will have an impact.. on our global reputation that is. But like members have said, forced deportation is not the way to go.

well.. you either have amnesty (free for all)
or you have deportation (free americans of the burden)

I vote for deportation!
can't do it all at once no..
but still MUCH MUCH better than amnesty.
Not hard to deport.. many everyday places to easily round'em up.
do it on a regular basis.. before ya know it.. alot of them will self deport
and the serious ones who want to actually be an american.. they will
go thru the legal process as intended by law.

Or you have self-deportation which is the most logical approach to the situation.

Our 'global reputation' is PATSY, and the sooner we stop acting like one the sooner our reputation will improve. Deportation of illegals discovered either in workplace enforcement actions or through 287g are perfectly proper and should continue/increase at least until our border is completely secured from the continued invasion of 4 million aliens EVERY year.

Like I said before, forced-deportation is not the way to go. self-deportation is the most logical. This will keep everyone off our backs.

The fact is you've GOT to deport the ones you catch, if you let them go they will NOT self-deport. I'm not advocating house-to-house searches, but when you catch busloads of illegals in the workplace the next stop should be south of Tijuana.
