(CNSNews.com) – Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, the nation’s top immigration law enforcer, said on Friday that the estimated 11.5 million illegal aliens in the United States are “not going away.”

“They’re here, and they’re not going away,” Johnson said at the Woodrow Wilson Center in remarks billed by the Obama administration as his “first major speech.”

Closing the gate, prosecuting, returning those we catch, you know, following the existing laws would be a start!

Defund and incarcerate them.

Because you and your kind refused to boot them out. Now that they’ve bankrupted the country you’re suddenly concerned.

Sorry Jeh, either by way of enforcement when you and your ilk are gone or by self deportation when they figure out you want to keep them here as the newest members of your Ponzi scheme, they're leaving. I just pray that all of you who took an oath and then violated it will someday be held accountable - starting with your boss.

They’re going away if we MAKE them go away. We’re the United States of America. We put a man on the moon. If we ever get the will to make illegal aliens leave, they’ll be leaving, tails between their legs.

God, let it be so.

They’ll go away when things are arranged so that they can’t access what they came here for. Take away off-books jobs, free stuff and anchor baby citizenship and they’ll find other destinations more attractive.

Bull. Illegals go back and forth depending on their job prospects and family situation (granted, this is easier those coming from Mexico, but not as likely for those from other countries in Central America). If we make it easy for them to stay, the chances are better that they will stay.

I think something could be done to give SOME illegals work permits, but I oppose any path to citizenship. Giving citizenship to illegal aliens devalues the worth of being an American citizen and undermines the rule of law.

Jeh, if you’re not going to do your job, why do we need to pay you a 6-figure salary? Any of us would be fired for not doing our job(s). Would it make any difference if you just didn’t show up to work?

The old bracero program worked OK. I would not have a problem with giving temporary permits to screened Mexicans and allow them to come up here to pick crops for six to nine months per calendar year, but not for the entire year. That way they will maintain their homes and families in Mexico. They can earn money in the U.S. and then go back to Mexico and build their casitas down there. The key is that they keep their home and their dependents in Mexico.

The illegal alien population is not a static population. It is constantly changing.

The frequently heard comment "You just can't deport 11 million people" reflects a mistaken mental image of the illegal alien population.

But the illegal alien population is not like the Super Bowl audience; it is a churning group, some newly arrived, some here for a long time, and many thinking about, planning to, or actually leaving through a wide variety of exits.

If we could limit the number of new entrants and make it less attractive for illegal ones to stay and make it easier and more attractive to leave, then we could decrease the size of the illegal alien population without any need to deport them all, as the graphic below illustrates.

The illegal alien population is a dynamic one and could be reduced substantially over the next few years if the government were to bring more pressure to bear on it in an organized manner by expanding interior enforcement while, at the same time, narrowing the inflow gates for that population, and broadening the outflow gates.

I agree that work permits for screened individuals is the way to go. If someone wants to become a citizen, that person must do so lawfully just like millions of immigrants before.

America has benefitted from legal immigration. People that choose to become Americans and do so the right way are an asset. We are a better nation for it. Those that come here illegally devalue the efforts of all those people who came here legally.

So...you admit that you're not doing the very job we hired you to do, isn't that right, Mr. Johnson?

They would go away if...

Do those things and illegal aliens will deport themselves and pay for the trip.

Just enforce the law!

Would they “go away” if all welfare, free education, free medical, and jobs were taken away from them? Arrest the criminals, seize their assets, jail them, then, deport them and their families. I think they’d “go away”.

Homeland has only ONE enemy. It’s NOT illegals. It’s NOT radical Muslims. It’s not third world drug dealers. Anyone know? (Hint - the IRS ‘profiled’ this group to deny them tax exempt status too)
