Default Deportation is nothing new

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_*******


What did Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?

Here is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me.

Back during The Great Depression, President Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make
jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work..

Harry Truman deported over two million Illegal's after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans.

And then again in 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican Nationals! The program was called 'Operation
*******'. It was done so WWII and Korean Veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took 2 Years, but they deported them!

Now...if they could deport the illegals back then - they could sure do it today.

lf you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation ******* into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.

Yep. We sure need a long overdue Operation Dampback or Operation NOT-DRYback.

We needed it yesterday!

I did not know that Ike had 13 million criminal invaders to deport...that is almost as many as we have now. If Ike could do it then why can't the teleprompter reader?

It was about 3 million illegal aliens not 13 million back then but it can be done today also. Take away all incentives to be here and they will leave on their own.

And what's really interesting is that Cesar Chavez and the UFW were instrumental in getting the government to do some of the deportations and border enforcement. Contrary to popular opinion, especially popular opinion among the La Raza types, Cesar Chavez was not an illegal nor was he a leader of illegals, and he didn't want an open border with cheap labor brought in to keep wages down.

There was even violence between the strikers and the illegals and the Teamsters that were hired by the Pelosi types to keep the farm workers down.

And approximately 60% of those deported were American citizens.

"...1 million people of Mexican descent were driven from the United States during the 1930s due to raids, scare tactics, deportation, repatriation and public pressure. Of that conservative estimate, approximately 60 percent of those leaving were legal American citizens."

Not only can deportations happen, it's not the drama that the open-borders side likes to make them out to be.

If you go to the border, you can even watch deportations. All that happens is that the INS van picks them up at the deportation center - and the illegals are actually looking forward to getting it over with.

The pull up to this gate, and the illegals get out and walk through the gate and voila! they are no longer illegals. They will often decide to just go home and visit their folks, spend some time with their kids. They might hang out in the border town for a while and find out if it's easy enough to get back over, or they might find a job and decide to just stay put there. Or they go back to their own town.

No one is dragged, there are no tears, no one is kicking and screaming. A lot of illegals actually want to go home again one day - it's only until the La Raza types convince them they never should want to go home that they don't. Many illegals actually don't hate their own country all that much, they'll accept going home when it's time to go home. Many just do whatever is easier at the time. They'll stay in the USA making the money as long as that's easy but many are happy enough to get back home.

That indeed was unfortunate and a grave mistake if those stats are correct. However, that has nothing to do with today. There are laws in place to protect U.S. citizens today and it is ludicrous to think that just because an American is of Mexican descent they would be deported when they can produce a valid birth certificate today. Of course mistakes can still be made today but not a huge 60% one like in the past. Me thinks you are grasping at straws here.
