We have immigration laws, and most people who really want to be Americans honor those laws, enter legally, and become respected citizens. It is Mexicans who think they deserve special attention who sneak across the border illegally. They are a criminal element we don't need, or have room for in our prisons.

If all the illegals (at least the ones who really do want citizenship), were to voluntarily deport, then we should agree to put their names at the top of the visa list. Those who don't, when caught, get 2 yrs penitentiary & deportation, WHICH IS WHAT MEXICO DOES WITH ITS ILLEGALS! Also, no taxpayer funded food stamps, housing, phone, etc.(free sh*t) for a certain amount of years after becoming citizens. First prove you can support yourselves, and your families by your own work.
Your plan will require immigration reform though since self deportation is illegal and carries heavy penalties.

A lot of people do not realize that if somebody voluntarily leaves the US they are automatically hit with a ten year bar banning them from even applying for a visa.

This is another example of the "broken immigration system". We should be encouraging people to leave, but instead we penalize them. So the people have a choice. They can lay low here, stay out of trouble and probably can live here illegally forever or they can go home and suffer the consequences.

The worst part of this is that if they do stay in the US and are caught and forcibly deported the ten year penalty is waived and they can apply for a visa right away.

What does Mexico do with people that come from El Salvador looking for a job in Mexico????. they send them back to El Salvador, now why should America not do the same to people from Mexico???.
wrong is wrong and illegal is illegal no matter how you cut it.
We Americans want Mexicans to come over and work and fill their dreams. But want them to legalized so they can the rights we have. That way their are not other Mexicans taking advantage of their people . "A fuerza ni la comida es buena".

The reason illegal aliens are deported is the fact that they committed a crime besides being here illegally. What brought them to the attention of police/ICE? Last week a dreamer ran over 2 sisters and killed, tried to hide the crime by washing the car. Now she's on trial, going to prison and deportation to Mexico where she will be doing donkey shows.

I don't understand what is going on in the United States regarding illegal immigrants. In Canada should you enter the country illegally and get caught you are immediately thrown in jail then swiftly deported. If you are an illegal you cannot work in Canada. If a business hires an illegal and gets caught their is dire conseqences for said business. You cannot collect welfare or take advantage of medicare. The problem in the United States seems to be Obama and the Democrats. Why are Federal laws not being enforced? All of these illegal Mexicans should be rounded up and deported. They have broken the law by entering United States soil illegally and taking up residence. It's a no brainer. If the laws cannot be enforced eventually this will result in chaos and anarchy. Besides, from what I hear, is that most Mexicans are law breakers, criminals and thugs.

People are deported for many reasons. Not just committing a crime. The strange thing is that you support a law that rewards people for being deported. I guess we disagree on that one.I do not think they should be rewarded.

Why. Because we enforce our immigration laws ? Mexicans feel that they have the right to break the law and everyone should just turn their heads. The only people acting like nazi's are the Mexicans.

I'am black.my people were brought here in chains, with a gun to their heads. Mexicans are here because they have a country that they can't manage because Mexican Indians are in charge. So they flee by the tens of millions. Better to live in the US on welfare than live in Mexico. The question is, will Mexicans flee the US when another country offers them a better deal. They have already turned their backs on their home country. They can not be trusted.

I support each any every illegal alien being picked up off the street and deported. If you don't have a passport/visa, green card or permission to be in the country and carry that paperwork on their person IAW federal law at all times should be deported.

Look at the mess they have in Mexico. 1000 years from now it will be worst. The borders will be sealed and no illegal aliens will be born US citizens.

$231 million per year. In the last three years?
That adds up to around $670 million.
The American taxpayer has shelled out around

It's hard to believe that doing nothing

It is the democrats who want the photo id as not a requirement to vote. Wonder why? How is that Obamacare working? I have far more respect for a mouse then a democrat.
