Finally it has arrived. Time to round up these illegal aliens and kick their arse to south of the border. We have spent way too much of our resources to a group of illegal, good for nothing people.
This will also help legal immigration - people who came to this country legally, paying taxes and are waiting in the line to get their green cards.

ICE seeks surrender of illegal immigrants

DOVER - This week, non-criminal illegal immigrants in the state who have
been served a final order of removal may have an "avenue of relief,"
according to a Department of Homeland Security official.

Starting Monday and ending Thursday, tents set up outside an unmarked bus on
the back part of the Strafford County Superior Court parking lot serve as a
place illegal immigrants may go for a voluntary surrender.

Harold Ort, vice president of Public Affairs for DHS and Immigration Customs
Enforcement, said it's a "humanitarian effort" between Indonesian churches
throughout the state and DHS.

"ICE is working with a coalition of Indonesian churches in the area about
the possibility of a voluntary surrender for certain non-criminal aliens
that have final orders of removal," Ort said.

Capt. Joseph DiGregorio with the Strafford County Sheriff's office said the
county is not actively participating in the effort; they are acting as a
"liaison" for immigration.

He said ICE asked for a centralized location to work out of and, as the
courthouse parking lot isn't under the jurisdiction of the sheriff, the
county commissioner granted permission for the bus to park there.

Ort said the program is not unique to New Hampshire and can be organized at
the discretion of DHS field offices all over the country. For New Hampshire,
the field office is located in Boston, Mass.

"It's a good program and it's really a humanitarian effort," he said. "The
whole purpose is bringing folks out of the shadows and saying listen, we'll
work with you. They're hiding in fear and we don't want that - no one wants
that."

It is said that... You can fool some of the people all of the time. And, you can fool all of the people some of the time. But, Obama, Holder and Napolitano will be prosecuted eventually. Justice will prevail!
