Most people who are against Illegal Aliens in our country believe that we can get rid of many of them by attrition. If the government makes it nearly impossible for an illegal alien to work in our country, then the illegals will just go back to their old country out of frustration. While I do not like all the illegals running around the country using fake ID and breaking all the laws, I wonder if smoking them out and expecting them to leave in frustration is a viable option.

Seriously, do you think it practical to think that if the government made it nearly impossible for the illegal aliens to work, would they (the illegals):

Go back to their old country

Get desparate and turn to even more off the books work like day labors

Riot and cause more crime

In other words what would happen if the government made it nearly impossible for illegals to work without giving them amnesty?

Some of all of the above would happen.......some would go back, some would work at work a day, and others would riot and cause more crime.

It is an option...but not the best one. At this point, IT IS TOO LATE. We need a radical action to get back on track. And that action is what 90% of Americans demand. UNCONDITIONAL MASS DEPORTATION. The only problem we have to do that, is politicians. Everything else is ready.

Talking Catch the employers

I think catching the employers ALL of them no matter if they are large or small companies and hitting them with major fines (and NO reduction of them) would do the trick, even the ones who hire the day laborers. Next up fine the landlords who rent to them. As their money dries up you will have those who would resort to crime but immediate deportation with no court case should handle them too...............you get caught you forfit everything you have here and are back in your own country within 24 hours, along with your whole family and since we have taken everything you have accumulated while you were here you have NOTHING left to try and come back to pack.....it's GONE buddy. Every child in a public school that is supported by the American taxpayer has to have their parent come in and prove the parents are here legally.........not here legally? get the kid (even anchor kids) out of the school system. I know lots of us know family and friends who do hire these people and turning them in is a hard decision but how much are those same people really thinking of you, your children and this country to be doing what they are doing..............put them out of business, it's what they deserve for their actions. If ICE doesn't act on your report call the IRS, they love going after these tax cheats. I have no sympathy for those who are enabling all this mess to continue.

I've always said hit employers with a back breaking fine for every illegal, every time they are caught and they'll stop hiring them. Additionally make being an illegal a felony and up the penalty for being here.

I wonder if the past deportations by Eisenhower and Hoover caused illegals to riot?

I would think as their money runs out they will be in a condition to be deported more easily.

Default Illegal Aliens will RIOT when jobs dry up

I believe that once the majority of the ILLEGALS find it nearly impossible to work, they will RIOT and CAUSE MORE CRIME, instead of just going home. What do you think?

This is not their country. If they RIOT and CAUSE MORE CRIME they should immediately be deported.

Busting the employer is a big key but you have to cut off the benefits, if both of these things were enforced they would have major protests and more Americans would open their eyes and turn agians't them.

Default dont let them in

Letting them in illegally (and our government is doing that) is the first step. Without that it is like building a house with a bad foundation.

Once they are in all they need to do is to get some pro activists group beind them to try and get OUR government to change the laws. Which is what they are doing now.
