The trick to solving the illegal issue can be easily figured out. Don't give them a reason to want to come. Harshly penalize those that hire illegal labor, demand proof of US citizenship before allowing illegals to collect government services, repeal "the anchor baby law", round up protesting illegals that have any issues with the enforcement of US laws and sovreignty, and make English the official language of the US. If this could be done the illegals would be more likely than not to deport on their own

They come from 34 countries. I'd like to know how many are visa overstays versus how many crossed the border illegally. None of the politicians ever address visa overstays and that's something the government should be able to control better.

There was a raid here in my area in Cal that got about 60 I believe. They said there was extortion going on with some of the management of the company. All the workers were illegal, and they made them all pay the supervisor 3K to get a job there. Somebody is going to jail. Good for ICE.

I think any time an illegal is caught, he or she will be injected with a tracking device so ICE can track them when they simply run back over the border...

In Cali no less.

These are repeat offenders living off the system that we're keeping alive on a shoestring.

We need to enforce our borders now more than ever.
Wow! good work! Only 25 million to go!

In all fairness: I doubt we had more than 7-10 million actual illegal immigrants here at most; but factoring in their US born Anchor Babies (technically citizens)....we may have indeed 20-25 million with constitutional status that is questionable.

That said: over 1.3 million Mexico nationals alone have self deported due to the imploding economy..........methinks the flow back south will soon turn into a torrent.

Wish that flow back home would start happening here in California. And to think I left Arizona in 2002.
