Bingo!

You know what, since international law now supports what Mexico is doing to us, let’s start sending all our problematic people down to Mexico, and drop them off on the other side.

Two can play this game.

$2B IS NOT NEEDED:

Have the National Guard patrol the border. Bring in local militias if needed.

Announce deportations will begin immedtiately

Cut off ALL benefits for illegals in this country.

Problem solved

Next question please.

Mexico treats immigrants very very very harshly though.

Well, OK. Provided that the money comes right out of the IRS and EPA budgets.

Want a couple of billion? Then take it from them.

Drop them off at their embassy and wash his hands of them. Simple and doesn’t cost the taxpayer a dime. Of course, he brought them over and now he’s bringing over their entire families.

Agree. The only money should be to return the children to their homelands. Furthermore, all entry to the US from central America should be barred until the task of returning the children to their homelands is completed.

It'll be interesting to see which HOR "conservatives" stand firm against the invasion of the US with this latest outrage.

Two points.
The first is when did we start paying tribute to foreign countries not to use their kids as weapons for invasion?

The second is why don’t we just sell the kids to Germany for $2B, since children (and their proper upbringing) are so precious to them?

The third (I know, I know), is that we can fire all the IRS employees recently hired for ObamaCare as a source of tribute, if that’s what King Hussein Really wants to do.

Where’s the border control required by law? No money for that? Bull.

Illegal entry = automatic deportation.

Proper response is “No.”
Too bad the GOP-E is with Obama on this.

$2 billion? Sorry, pal.

You're in charge of enforcing immigration law. It's your job. Do it.

You might try using that mighty pen and phone you're always flapping your gums about. Those ought to do the trick.

If Barry is having to move 52,000 illegal aliens, he ought to be getting a volume discount.









Well, that's what somebody who knows what they're doing would do, anyway.

$42,000ea to deport! Hell No!

Boehner should immediately put a Bill on the floor for $32 million. ($450ea for a plane ticket = $32 million!)

In addition to, finger print them all & tell them that if they don't self-deport they lose the right to ever enter the US Legally! & If caught in the US - straight to a Sheriff Arpairo Tent Prison...

Charge them with a Felony for entering the US illegally (never voting) & No Food Stamps, Housing, School, Welfare, Healthcare or jobs.

All done... Otherwise, we lose the our civilization to the barbarian gangs from all over the world.

Does anyone actually believe he would spend the funds on what he said he needs it for? No, he’s a proven liar. It’s just another way to redistribute the wealth.
