Great. We’re solving our illegal immigrant problem by driving our economy into the toilet and destroying our future.
I thought it was impossible to deport all these people? I thought there was no way for them the re-partriate. It was deemd impossible, remember?
Stopped right there.
Rats aren’t into a sinking ship.
This is direct evidence that “self-deportation” is the answer.
In other words: No we do not need to deport 20 million illegal aliens.
Just don’t let anyone in the country illegally work.
Couldn’t be simpler. Presto: they’ll find jobs. By being resourceful, determined, even if necessary making difficult and sometimes dangerous treks long distances - with personal perseverance, risking elements to heroically travel to where they can find jobs.
How many of those 1.4 million leaving just happened to have a baby here and left it with relatives with cradle to grave gov’t bennies?
The only reason this is even news right now is because Obama wants it to be. He will use this to say “see, most of the illegals have left so lets just legalise the one that remain”. It will be around that time that we find out those statistics were inaccurate. It’s the “bait and switch style” of this administration. If immigration was no longer a problem, they would have dropped the Arizona law suit. They haven’t.
It does it you actually interpret the Constitution and the 14th Amendment corectly. And as far as allowing in more highly-skilled workers, we should be producing those ourselves. It would be an exponential benefit to do so.
And there has been no decrease in legal immigration, which is about 1.2 million a year, with about 150,000 a year coming from Mexico.
Of course it is just possible that the only people left in Mexico these days are tourists, drug cartel members, and the ruling elite.
All the rest have moved north so no more folks to cross the border
Any media story about the border is suspect.
Notice how none of them interview border county sherriffs.
Bet they have a much different story to tell.
How about we put enough boots along the border to count them as they leave?
That way we can be SURE the problem is going away.
Otherwise, not so much.
They may not be working here but I can assure you they are on virtually every government tit that is available together with their anchor babies. They are not going anywhere.
I call B.S.
Illegals avoid the census carefully. Many are living in unauthorized converted quarters like garages. That was a big problem in east LA years ago, & it has only gotten worse.
Due to limits on occupancy, they also lie about how many people are living in any particular residence.
I don’t trust a single word that janet Nappy says—at anytime—so why should I trust her with this piece of info?
Ask the people who live within 300 miles of the Mexican border & you will find out better answers.
Mexico’s poverty problem got exported to the USA. No wonder they are doing better than us. They don’t have to fund all of the welfare cases they had, while we have to pay billions upon billions for the health care and education of 15 million illegals from Mexico on top of all of the legals.
