    “SI SE PUEDE”

    Round them up, put them of busses, trains and planes and transport them across the border. We cannot do it? 40,000 Native Americans, menn women and children, were rounded up on their land, shown a “Trail of Tears” and sent across the country and 10,000 of them lost their lives on the way. They did not have the luxury of busses, trains and planes.
    Thousand of Japanese American men, women and children, were rounded up and put on busses and trains and put into internment camps.
    We should send illegal aliens back home the same way they came, walking across the border and the desert, swimming across the American Canal and we want to make the Canal safer for them to cross? :cuckoo:

    I'm with you. Free rides to the border the first time by bus. Free rides to the border the second time by ambulance.

    Choices are made by individuals! They choose to take chances and come illegally and there are consquences to be paid for that. I'm sure they are very aware of that and do so anyway......so.....
    This country must do what it has to do to stop the flow - some will like it; some will not....that is just the way it is. They should THINK about the choices they make before making them. If they choose not to, so be it.....the consequences are still there.

    The fact that you equate a (albeit poor) solution for illegal immigration to two of the greater injustices in American history shows how out to lunch you frigging people are.

    BTW, we've been sending them back to Mexico for decades. They come right back. Before anyone vilifies Mexicans too much, do they honestly think the Irish would have gone through Ellis Island during the potato famine if they shared a common border with us? It makes it hard to be an "illegal immigrant" when you have to get on a boat and cross an ocean to get here. Geography is as much a problem here as anything.

    The plight of the hispanics and the persecution they face in this country isn't too terribly different from most other ethnic groups if you aren't completely ignorant of your own history. Ever hear of the "know nothings"? Why did the Italians form the "Cosa Nostra"?

    But by all means, go draconian and start harassing every brown skinned person that crosses your path and demand to see their papers. We'll take their votes and you guys will become more and more despondent and wonder what ever happened to your "'merica" and how you lost control.

    The country is going to march on in spite of your xenophobia.

    The fact that they keep coming back is more the reason to build the fence....if they come back, we keep sending them back - if that is what has to be done, do it. Ireland is not the one that borders us - it's Mexico. We would do the same thing if it were the Irish jumping the fence......but it happens to be MEXICO! It's time you bleeding hearts stop making this a 'color' thing. Ilegals are here from across the oceans also.....but they come via ships and boats; they come from Cuba (wet foot, dry foot), Haiti, DR, etc. Do I blame them for wanting to come to this great nation? Hell NO! But - come in through the FRONT DOOR! Wait in line! Do it right or stay home.

    If they don't like the "presecution" they can leave. Blacks, Native American could not and Japaneses were American and should not have been put in camps and their property taken.
    Illegal immigration is much worse but we want to make it easier for them to commit crimes.

    Heres the deal bagbrains.

    The cost of rounding up and deporting people is money we do not have.

    The most humaine, cost effective, legal and intelligent way to handle this situation is to have people come to you for their temporary papers. Those who do that within a certain amount of time will get the chance to be in line for permanent citizenship. Then we go after those who will not come in of their own free will. They will be the criminals and we wont have to sort them out from the decent people who only came here out of need and have not commited crimes.

    The nasty ones get their asses tossed acrossed the border.

    Families of American citizens dont get split in two.
