is there a solution to illegal immigration?
Illegal immigration problem isn't going to be solved over night and any solution that I have found has major flaws. Amnesty. - currently UCIS are overload with work, how would they be able to cope if 13 million new applications needed to be processed. - If illegal immigrants were granted amnesty what would stop more illegal immigrants crossing the boarder, would you need to grant amnesty every 20 years to increasing number of illegal immigrants. - How are we to know what the back ground is of all these illegal immigrants, what is to stop murders, rapists, etc gaining legal status and hence avoiding prosecution for their crimes. - Wouldn't all the illegal immigrants start using facilities the same as citizens, since they will be able to legally. This increase wouldn't be covered by the taxes collected. - Wouldn't this have a negative effect of the unemployed. - Wouldn't this increase prices and cause unemployment to hispanics. - wouldn't employers simply hire the new wave of illegal immigrants and we have 13 million new unemployed citizens. Removal; - how exactly would you remove 13 million people? - How much would it cost to house, feed and pay for removal of 13 million people? - How long would the processing time be to remove the people? - Were would the resources come from, each state, the government, etc? - Who would pay for this? - What's to stop the same people returning again? Reforming the law to allow more immigrants of low skill: - Illegal immigrants already take more job of african American in the low skilled worker than anyone else. - the low skilled worker have the highest rate of unemployment out of any band would increasing the number of workers in this area be beneficial at all. - If the population control done by UCIS stayed in place wouldn't this effect high skilled workers visa application. - UCIS struggles already with the number of applications would more simply cause longer delays? - It is often stated that illegal immigrants can't afford the Visa fees would increasing the number of visas have any effect on the number of illegal immigrants or would it simply increase the amount low skilled visa applications from Europe? Enforcing the currently law and prosecuting employers of illegals. - Removal in great numbers wouldn't occur. - Would have negative effects on the local economy as some business shut. - Illegals would find ways to continue to work until the company is raided and then simply go under ground.

Round them up in a military and law enforcement sweep and take them back, then if any come back imprision them for life. But this govt doesnt have the guts to do that becuase they are sissy's.

Yes. Mass deportation of ALL illegal aliens back to where they came from. It has been done before and can be done again.

We still have a militia in this country. Why don't we use it? The laws are on the books, all we have to do is use them or enforce them. We could have more jobs for the jobless if we could get rid of the illegals.

A Stasi style border with automatic machine guns and land mines should do the trick. Then leave the bodies there, to rot, as a visual deterrent to others.
