He said that illegal immigration could be brought under control if the federal government wished to do so. "What's lacking is the political will to do it," he said

No mention of a plan, just a platitude.

No need to mention the plan. Good plans have been mentioned from MANY quarters MANY times before. The answer has been presented time after time in thread after thread.

You don't deport them. You set up the circumstances so they leave of their own free will.

It is already a federal felony to knowingly hire an illegal alien. A pattern of committing felonies is organized crime, covered by RICO.

If employers know they will a) go to jail, b) pay thousands or millions in fines, and c) possibly lose their business if privately held, they will quit hiring illegals. With no jobs they will go home without being evicted. This process can be helped along by denying them things such as driver's licenses, welfare benefits, and citizenship rights for children born of parents here illegally (anchor children).

It is really very simple. When someone ignores the obvious and tries to make this difficult, it causes me to believe they don't want a resolution to the problem

I don't see a platitude - just the truth.

It is obvious to me with this issue that there are those here at FR who a) don't see a problem with the number of illegals in the country, or b) approve of the number of illegals in this country. Perhaps your case would be better served by telling the truth about how you feel on the subject of immigration control, rather than saying it (control) can't be done.

Decades of banging their plans -- and their heads -- against scores of hundreds of gangster politicians' doors tends to have the effect of reducing good men's plans to platitudes

Gee...I must have missed the story about how the economy must have had a "boom" of "Toilet-Scrubbing" jobs...isn't that why they come here ILLEGALLY Dane?
