Here is a hint where to start looking into history.

A little town in Texas were my wife and I know oh so well, named Gonzales.
You could hear them yelling "COME & TAKE IT"!!!!

Put a $500 tax free bounty on their head for their arrest. there would be alot of illegals getting turned in then.
arrested by whom? $500 X 12 mil = $6 bil

you got $6 billion laying around?

then add on the cost to house, process, feed, and transport them another $2500 per.

$2500 x 12 mil = 30 bil. So $36 bil in cash?

Totally ridding the USA of illegal aliens, would be very, very, easy. Way easier than ridding this nation of terrorist, or drug dealers & users.

It would be so easy, it would not cost the USA a dime. That is right not one damn dime. Actually the USA treasury would make a profit.

Every single one of them, would be gone. Never to come back.

I dont, but the feds do, and it would cost alot less that giving them welfare, medical aid and anything else some states want to give illegals.

arrested by whom? arrested by ICE or any other law enforcement agency, and paid for by the feds.

Center for Immigration Studies

According to much of the data I've seen we'd save over 10 Billion a year immediately.


Households headed by illegal aliens imposed more than $26.3 billion in costs on the federal government in 2002 and paid only $16 billion in taxes, creating a net fiscal deficit of almost $10.4 billion, or $2,700 per illegal household.

And that was 2002, 8 years ago with now many more illegal mouths to feed.

I guess you haven't heard that Fannie Mae has asked for another $8 billion.

What would not cost us a dime and they would not even think of coming here. Think for a minute.....


What would stop them from coming here setting up house and saying "this is our land and ours to take", while they create Barrios out of once nice neighborhoods.

What would stop them from overcrowding our schools with idiots, that cost our kids a once good education?



Why are they here again? What is the chant? "To do... "

Think about it..... What draws them here?


Why are our schools being ruined and our kids education in the crapper?
What is it that allows so many anchor babies to be in our schools?
What is it that allows illegal kids to attend public funded schools?

Why are they here again? What is the chant? "To do... "

Think about it..... What draws them here?

It's a riddle!

Does Ca's Prop 187 fall into the category of your solution? We all know that went over like a lead balloon, despite the majority of CA voting for it. So much for the whole "we the people" concept.
