IRVINE, California (Reuters) - President George W. Bush said on Monday he doubted a "massive deportation" of foreigners living illegally in the United States would solve the country's immigration woes, as he tried to revive prospects for an election-year agreement in the divided U.S. Congress.
Senators returned to Washington on Monday from a two-week recess after Democrats and Republicans were unable to reach a compromise on what to do about an estimated 11.5 million to 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States.

Before we decide it won't work let's try it!
massive deportation won't work.
Well, of course not regardless of what some extremists say.
But when it doesn't matter, they throw up their arms and say it can't be done.
I believe ALL elected officials are sworn to obey the Contitution? Oh, it's just an old meaningless document anyway. Politicians these days are so much smarter than our founders.
you have a point, and the other side of that is, if we don't shut off those illegal jobs and benefits, nothing we do will get rid of them, it will always be worth it to return.
Oh, good lord.
That's why we need to jail the crimminals who hire them. Once you cut off the attraction they deport themselves.
We did. 1953.
But start arresting some, and the rest flee on their own.
Similarly, arrest business owners and jobs dry up --- causing flight, as well.
A porus border works both ways.
"as he tried to revive prospects for an election-year agreement in the divided U.S. Congress."
And he thought that he was helping election year candidates....oh no that did not help unless he wanted the other party to win. Wait what is the other party to him?
Stop hiring them, they'll go home and pay their own transportation costs...
They will never choose to go home as long as they have free health care, education, food stamps, licenses, jobs. Duh!
Good Points....it makes ya wonder huh?
All I know is I'm sick of both sides doing nothing but throw up their hands and giving statements like this. It's SO pathetic.
And unless the Republicans grow a serious spine, we're gonna be worse off than we are now. And I fear it's gonna get worse before it gets any better, especially with the government pandering to these illegals.
That depends on whom you are working for, Mr. P. It would work for Americans. It just wouldn't work for the Communists who are inciting illegals to "march for their rights", when as illegals they have NO rights in this country. As criminals, it is their "right" to be incarcerated prior to deportation.
I still think they should all be inducted into the armed services, and deployed to Iraq and other strategic locales in the middle East. If they serve the U.S. well in the service, they can earn citizenship upon discharge. Pay would be better than pickin' peas. They'd get room, board, duds and spending money for the duration. Hard to beat that.
Don't worry I never respond to Dane, or some others around here. It is an exercise in futility.
No doubt you have tried to run a small business in some places where you can't get any decent workers? Where for every dollar you pay your employees another 2 dollars goes to the bloated govt?
