We Don’t Need Massive Deportations. We Need To Crack Down On The Employers
“Massive deportation of the people here is unrealistic. It’s just not going to work. You can hear people out there hollering it’s going to work. It’s not going to work. It just — and so therefore, what do we do with people who are here? And this is one of the really important questions Congress is going to have to deal with.” — George Bush
Know what isn’t unrealistic? Cracking down on employers with heavy fines and jail time for knowingly hiring illegal immigrants. If you do that, they’ll stop hiring illegals. If they stop hiring illegals, most of the illegal aliens who are here will go home. Moreover, most of the people who would otherwise come to the United States illegally in order to get work, won’t bother.
You make it so that the illegals can’t get jobs, you get rid of most of the illegals. It’s really just that simple.
