Republican Immigration Platform Backs 'Self-Deportation' - NYTimes.com The open borders crowd constantly tell the American people that there are only two solutions to our nation's illegal alien crisis give illegal aliens amnesty or round them up and deport them. This is a diversionary tactic to draw public attention away from the most effective and efficient solution Attrition Through Enforcement. The principle behind Attrition Through Enforcement is that living illegally in the United States will become more difficult and less satisfying over time when the government at ALL LEVELS enforces all of the laws already on the books. It is also imperative that the government with the full cooperation of the private sector, implements certain workplace enforcement measures. The goal is to make it extremely difficult for unauthorized persons to live and work in the United States. There is no need for taxpayers to watch the government spend billions of their dollars to round up and deport illegal aliens; they will buy their own bus or plane tickets back home if they can no longer earn a living here.
