The only correct answer to, “What is better then a day without illegal immigrants?”
A lifetime without ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!
I pray that the US gets tough on illegals. Hopefully, everyone will see that the world didn’t come to an end today without illegals, and the US politicians put some serious legislation in place that dramatically reduces the illegals that are here.

Part of my arguement (not discussed due to typing time) in your last post about this was “How can the U.S. REALISTICALLY deport 11 million illegal immigrants?” Well, if they keep this up, it is going to make it a whole lot easier! They are lucky there were not buses ready and paperwork being checked.
Not a smart move for the illegal immigrant.
Plus, my favorite Mexican restuarant was closed today. Not Good.
The local radio program I listen to on the way home from work every day has been talking a lot about this issue and I’ve heard many opinions / comments / facts from all sides of the story. The one that I agree with the most is this …
By removing the 11/12 million illegals in the country, 1 of 2 things happens. Big money has to hire more expensive workers to fill jobs, or they simply go back to their sources and fill the positions with more illegals / cheap labor.
On the flip side, if we were to grant amnesty to these 11/12 million people, they would then be protected by the laws of the United States and no longer forced to work for lower wages. This would mean that big money would have to pay them more, or bring in more illegals / cheap labor to fill the positions. If the latter scenario happens, that means there’s 11/12 million potentially out of work citizens looking for jobs / sitting homeless on the corner.
I personally don’t see an easy solution to this. Whatever happens, it’s not the illegals that will eventually decide the success / failure of the decisions made by the government. It’ll be big money / the U.S. population that deals with higher wages / costs to support these new Americans and their quest for the dream (as it’s sent back to their home country, no less).
Other than reducing the number of illegals, what do you think should be done?
First let me say I’m sorry your favorite Mexican restaurant was closed yesterday. Please tell me if it’s open today so I can call the police and have the owner arrested for using illegal, criminal labor.
On, how does the US deport 11 million illegal criminals? I’m not sure. I’m not a politician, I don’t work in law enforcement, or any other civil servant position. One thing I do know. There’s millions upon millions upon millions of illegals here in Texas.
The US might look at starting here in Texas. It will be a very short bus ride to take them down to the border.
Chad, it’s good to know you still stop by to read my crazy ramblings….
Your points are dead on. The economic ramifications of booting all the illegals will surely be felt by everyone in this country. I’m sure the economics of this are one of the main reasons there hasn’t been any reform.
One thing I know, the jobs that are being done by the illegals WILL be done by someone if and when they are booted. The workers might pay more for that labor. Which in turn might cost me more the next time I buy something.
BUT… The amount of tax money it takes to put their kids through school, that pays their medical, and pays for their prison time (over sending them back to Mexico) should decrease. That might offset the possible higher cost of other things that had cheap wages tied to illegal workers.

Hopefully, this is true. I see this as an issue that will stay in government hands for a long while. Whoever started the discussion is probably hoping for another big issue to take the stage, that way they can work quietly in their office, instead of in front of a microphone and the public.
Professional admins. understand ‘unfunded mandates’.
This happens in pub. schools, hospitals, cities, counties etc.
Police understand what happens when statutes declare a crime w/o stated punishment.
When enforcement is unclear, unfunded or not enforced, then you can forget the crime.
We know ‘puter stuff, guys – people, policy & society is another whole arena – doit somewhere else!!
the resturants can stop serving these illegals when they come in for one day up to one month.
how offten do you see them eat at non-mexican restaurants where the bigger money is ???
the news media messed this one all the time.
one day savings for the USA
when illegals stop sending their kids to schools, free lunches, sick illegals to emergency rooms, traffic tickets not paid, and so on………
do you know the media do not want you to know the ER rooms are flooded with illegals in southern regions in CA, AZ, NM, TX, FL???
and who pay for illegal babies born in hospitals ??? the US Congress suck the taxpayers !!!
