I recommend a cash incentive to go home. Give them a check at the border. Would save enforcement and court costs.
Collect biometric information on the recipients and have severe penalties if they reenter illegally.
So I guess that the 20 million illegals are out of the question.
Why won't our leaders consider the true value of deportation of illegals?
You wouldn't have to deport all 20 million, just start with the first million, issues arrest and deportation orders for the next million, and arrest and prosecute any employer of an illegal immigrant and watch as the majority run for the borders.
Kick the illegals out of public schools, give them emergency room care, but deport them immediately after.
It can be done but it requires political will.
I'm sick of people saying that latinos will become the next new majority minority.
Why not make the mexican flag legal only in mexico?
Screw newt, that weak little wife cheating prick.
“Its the same position as Palin. What say you??”
I say they are both dead wrong on this. Why?
Apparently Mexicans do not reproduce.
I just do not understand how anyone likes this guy.Besides being the head RINO,he cheated on his wife didn’t he? He is what the GOP stands for. Grouchy Old Politicians.
Exactly my question. It was done in the past, why not now?
Newt has NO chance to get the nomination. He has a lot of baggage and isn’t popular. As we see, yet again, he has a tendency to let his mouth run with gratuitous statements.
If the GOP runs a candidate that I can vote for like Jeff Sessions, Robert Bentley, or Martha Roby here in Alabama, then I will vote Republican in the 2012 presidential election.
If they run another Juan McCain or George W. Bush, I will vote for the Constitution Party or just leave that box unticked. In 2008, they forced that choice upon us and lost Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico. Obama outperformed Kerry in almost every Red State.
If they haven’t learned anything from that experience, then clearly they need to be taught another lesson.
The ones we don't want came here for free handouts and crime. Ending the various socialist welfare programs extended to them and we'd go a long way to getting the criminal element to leave with them.
a chicken in every Caucus!
Let's just accept that there will be obvious difficulties with rounding up a bunch of folks who don't want to be found.
More importantly, the legal backlog created by the need for due process (drat that Constitution of ours!) would be utterly unsupportable -- and you can be sure that the lawyers defending those who come up before such courts will stretch it out to the maximum possible extent.
It's just not likely to happen. Sorry, folks -- that's just the way it is.
Now, if a way could be found to ensure that only those here legally can get work ... well, that might work, and those who can't work might well leave on their own. But of course there are practicalities involved there, as well, and trade-offs would undoubtedly be made in order for Congress to pass any such program.
And then, of course, the border-bots will be most unhappy, and instead of taking a half-loaf this time, they'll simply starve for another several years.
I agree. Unfortunately, the solution is too simple for our liberal, bloated government to understand.
“We are not going to deport 11 million people,”
No we should deport 20 million, that is the real number.
Absolutely! Amazing to think what would happen if we actually enforce existing laws. There'd be no need for amnesty (not that there's ever a need) or deportation. The situation will self-police.

President Eisenhower did it with “Operation Wetback”.
It took 2 years to sweep the wetback illegals out and deport them all back to Mexico.
And it did involve millions of them.
Are you going to arrest 11 million Americans who one day finally get tired enough of this invasion to start doing what the federal and and even state governments refuse to do, Newt?
