Certainly not the ones in D.C. , nor their appointees....Napatolitano spends more time adjusting the laws to fit the needs of the maobama admin and chasing Joe Arpaio than she does enforcing the laws already on the books....

By enforcing the laws we can reasonably expect a sharp increase in self deportations.
Start dropping some big fines on the big abusers and we will see others getting rid of their illegals in a hurry.
Nail the small employers as well. No exceptions nail them all.
With no work available the illegals will self deport. Those who dont will be caught anyway.

Someone who needs to support their family? Just a guess.

12%+ unemployment (official rate, the real unemployment rate is significantly higher) in California may 'entice' many an American to do what you stated.

The same people who did it prior to the cheap labor invasion.

How much would it cost to deport 21 million people? Probably several billion dollars...as if the government hasn't already flushed enough money down the toilet, let's go flush some more. I guarantee several weeks later all those people would be back in the country anyway, it's a terrible idea.

Maybe it is time to find out how 'bad' an investment it would be to deport said illegal alien losers. Remember that cutting of remittances to Mexico alone would probably be a net gain for the USA.

Besides: E-Verify as well as rescinding birthright citizenship for minor age Anchors below a certain age would force out probably millions of illegals.

I just think it'd be a huge waste of money. If they want to come back they'll find a way to get back.

E-verify = A much better solution, cheaper, easier to reinforce and proven to be much more effective. I'm not sure rescinding birthright citizenship would fly but legislation could be passed to change the policy going forward, then those who already have that would most likely be grandfathered in.
