    No - you are saying that you would agree with the death penalty for illegals, only if the punishment could be swift. That is pretty heartless.

    The death penalty should always be swift regardless.

    Let them come here and speak their mind for themselves, then. You're no one's spokesman.

    Cruel? Hogwash. Unusal? That would change.

    Make it a capital crime to employ undocumented workers/ immigrants.

    It might, but it would sure decimate the halls of higher education, not to mention many liberal/progressive groups.

    Apparently you can't read, which isn't a surprise. The question was about people who HIRE illegals, not illegals themselves. Secondly, I said that it would be useless because it takes so long to get anyone executed, it wouldn't dissuade anyone from committing the crime. But hey, don't let reality get in the way of your emotional whining.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
