administrative gridlock

Why does the government keep claiming that to deport the illegal aliens would cost too much..Me thinks that it ia a political dodge..I don't claim to be smart in these matters, but it seems to me that we should require employers to identify these folks and turn them over to the INS. They would probably do so if they were fined a hefty sum if one was found in their employ and not reported..There might be enough money from the fines to return the illegals to their place of origin..Maybe $10,000.00 the first offence and double the fine for eacn offense afterward..We might ever make enough on fines to raise th minimum wage so our own citizens could afford to do these jobs!!

  • I think it would take a lot more than $10,000 to make a difference. $100,000 first offense-and that is the first ilegal employee caught and double for the second and consfiscation of the business for the third. No jobs = no illegals

  • I'm with you all the way on this one Howard but it makes you wonder why Bush finally decided to flip flop on the issue now. As long as they work, commit no crimes against our citizens, learn to speak English and earn their citizenship and become productive citizens, in my mind they would be very welcomed. If they want to be crooks and liars ship them out. No tolerance allowed.

  • I'm not too exuberent over the speach that Bush made..There will be a week or so of media hype, then congress will have to go on "Holiday vacation" and when they get back , all this will have blown over and it will be business as usual..We'e been down these dead end roads so many times with the present administration that it's not even worth enough interest to raise an eyebrow. I.m not taking any politial side in this because they are equally guilty of corporate pandering and political grandstanding instead of tending to the nations needs..TO tell the truth, I don"t know of a single thing that they have done in the last five years that's worthy of mention..The country might have been better off if they had all stayed at home (without pay of course)Ha!Ha! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE...
