Prevention is the easiest form of control for this problem, so I believe you're focusing on the right aspect to manage this problem. As with any human behavior, all you have to do is focus on motivation. Why do illegal aliens come here... More

1.) fence off the borders By All Means Necessary. 2.) fine and jail time for employers $25,000 per illegal alien and 10 years in federal prison. 3.) i yet to find a way to round up 12 to 20 million illegal aliens in one sweep, but if found they should be deported right away.

Legalise the illegal immigrants OR drive them out of the country in phased manner irrespective of the hue and cry from corporates and human rights pundits.

1. Enforcement of all immigration laws. 2. Fine and or jail those who hire illegal aliens. 3. Fine and or jail those renting to illegal aliens. But before all of that fence the borders, control of our borders and ports must come first.

Simple, quit voting for republicans that say one thing and do another. Repubs have had control of every branch of government for 6 years and they did NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING to stop or slow down illegal immigration. As a matter of fact, they passed laws that would make it easier for illegals to come to the country... More

Seal our Boarders, and I mean REALLY SEAL OUR BOARDERS BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Then round up all illegals and deport them. Then arrest those who took advantage of the Illegals and paid them slave wages. Also find them $10,000 per Illegal that they employed. If they employed more than 10 Illegals, then send them to Jail... More

As Americans we must be heard. We have laws that our elected officials are not upholding. March for American - Take America back. On June 14-16th there will be a march for America. Let Freedom Ring America. For more details on what you can do go to: http://www.lframerica.com/march2.html

The solution to this problem will not go into effect until we have a new president that will vigorously enforce immigration laws. But away from all that if our government is hesitant in enforcing the laws then I think militarizing the border would be our best bet. The granting of amnesty only worsens the problems... More

Force employers to do a legal status background check on all employees, not the "I looked at the green card and it looked real to me" method that gets them off the hook when caught. Watch the migration southward.....

Help end poverty at whatever countries illegal immigrants are coming from. None of these people come here because they are going to have such a great time! If they are not extremely poor they will not WANT to come. There will be no need for fences, shootings, etc... More

Place an electrified fence along the southern border and brand the face of every illegal we catch. Then if you are caught in this country with the brand we shoot you. Any one bringing in a branded head gets $1000.00 NO QUESTIONS ASKED! I think this would cut the problem by close to 70%. It would not be popular nor do... More

inforce the laws and send them back. Ignore the whining about 'I had my baby here'. Is it our fault you came here illegally and leeched off the US taxpayer to live and have babies? In the mean time, build a fence and have the army (armed) protect our borders.
