This will be a game where we discuss possible solutions to real problems. It will be fiction based on facts.
We will elect officers, and enforcers. We will vote on punishmenst for violators etc. Its a game but also a mental excercise. Lets try to keep it real. I have a feeling I will struggle the most.
Posters can post actual immigration news and the task force will respond.

Oh, I would like to play!

I suggest stringently and thoroughly investigating all businesses that have the propensity of hiring illegals, such as contractors/builders, packing houses and factories. I would tell these businesses that there will be unannounced raids during which their paperwork and computers will be confiscated to search for illegal employees. If any are found, the company will then pay a fine equall to the one year salary paid to that illegal(s). The money would go into a fund to support ICE and border patrol. Of course all illegals will then be deported to their home country. If they have minor american born children they will have the option of leaving their children in the US only if said children have legal relatives in the US, otherwise the children must go with the parents but will have the option of returning once they hit the age of 18 and only if they have a clean criminal record.

Hows that for a start?

Ok Camping is our attorney General. Camping will help us to not only indite but also determine a fitting punishment.
My role in this game will be moderator unless others wish me to fulfill a different mission.
So to begin with.
1. Fines and assets will be used to fund and expand upon ICE. I would suggest a 10 grand ine for each of the first 10 illegals. Double the fine for the next 10. triple the fine for the next 10 and so on.
2. Anchor babies will be deported with the parents unless legal relitives who are citizens wish to care for them at their own expense. Welfare is not elligible in this case.
3. We will have a special judge for ICE search warrents. High security no leaks. People who do leak will face 10 years in prison and $50 grand fine.
Great first start.

Thank you, Tinman.

My first task is to have the total cooperation of local governments during ICE raids. ANY attempt on the part of the local government to interefere with an ICE raid will result in a $50 million fine.

My second task will be to coordinate raids of every fast food resturant and construction company in Northern Virginia. If ANY illegals are found they will be handcuffed along WITH the owner.

We should also include any anti raid snitches for fines, land lords and people who knowingly offer sanctuary to said illegals.
Your suggestion is approved by me until we form a voting committee of members.
That is an excellent first step Commander. It sends a powerful message to other states as well as illegals, their employers and their facilitators. I would also suggest adding churches who grant sanctuary to your list.

I'd say, in oder to get back to our American ways, strip all anchor babies of citizenship.
