    Right. Rather, we should deport all 20 million of them overnight. That should do wonderful things for our economy!

    Please don't exaggerate. We should deport illegal immigrants as we catch them. We should police for them. They are criminals. None of this will result in 20 million people being deported overnight.

    Why should we divert police resources away from finding rapists and murderers to catch those productive members of the workforce who are guilty of nothing more than an administrative offense?

    Just think of all the jobs that would open up. When Swift was raided in 2006 and several hundred illegals arrested, there were people lined up to apply for the new job openings.

    You're right. That will do wonderful things for the economy.

    Nor will it result in 20 million illegal immigrants ever being effectively deported, since they will attempt to return if domestic conditions if their homelands have not changed. Domestic conditions need to change here too. Firstly, we need to eliminate excessive demand for low-skilled labor, and we should not permit public policy to be dictated by a financial class that effectively sucks the life out of Mexico through excessive trade liberalization, thereby forcing immigration.

    We wouldn't be diverting anything. We have immigration cops and it's, like, their job to enforce immigration laws. Border Patrol, ICE, INS; it's what they do.

    Where did I suggest taking any resources away from catching rapists and murderers? I did not in fact. I also do not attempt to dismiss people committing a fairly serious crime by calling it "an administrative offense".

    Illegal immigration is not the fault of any government, but the fault of the people who chose to break laws to improve their situation. There is no excuse for being a criminal.

    Here's a better idea: do away with minimum-wage laws and all the taxes employers are required to pay when hiring workers. That would make the desire to hire strictly illegal immigrants go away, not to mention doing wonders for the economy. It's also a hell of a lot simpler than the big government solution of apprehending, trying and transporting people who will be back here again a week later.

    I feel it about garnering illicit votes and labor cash from lobbies.

    Concern for America or its security does not seem to enter into the equation.
    Thank you
