No it wouldn't, that would only be if Obama put a million in each of their pockets before they left. Anyways, how much is it costing us to let them stay????? More than that. The hospitals alone lose more than 300 Billion dollars every 2 years because of illegals.

First of all any money they have or any posessions should be confiscated since they were aquired while they were here ILLEGALLY. The savings in educating,incarcerating and social services would offset the cost.And the 285 billion would produce AMERICAN jobs. The transportation,temporary housing and armed guards would mean thousands of good paying jobs.Money well spent!

They came at their own expense they'll mostly leave at their own expense when there are NO jobs, NO welfare, and NO citizenship for their anchors.

Sounds that unlike most government programs this would pay for itself in less than a year.

More media nonsense to lull you into thinking that getting rid of illegal aliens is an impossible job and their hands are tied. ATTRITION WORKS! ATTRITION IS INEXPENSIVE!!!! This option never gets put on the table when they have debates. It's either amnesty or deportation...

We all know that cutting off welfare, not allowing ownership of any kind, no in state tuition, no rentals, no drivers licenses,prosecute businesses that hire, etc. No cost to us! It works!

Massive deportation would create truly "Shovel Ready" jobs. The money would help stimulate the economy as would the jobs taht opened up after deproting the illegal aliens. The taxes that are spent for the illegal aliens education, housing, medical and incarceration could either help pay down the national debt or returned to the taxpayer which would help stimulate the economy even more. Massive deportation od all illegal aliens would be a win-win any way you look at it.
The only losers may be the democrats. It is shown that people that work for their money are less apt to have democrats take it from them.

Hey illegal immigration cost 120 billion a year to host these criminals.
It's worth paying 285 billion to get rid of these criminals in the long run, deportation.

Here we go with "it's impossible", "there are just too many", ad infinitum.

Don't deport them. Turn off the freebies, revoke birthright citizenship, get them out of our schools, hospitals and off our social support systems. Implement e-Verify. Penalize employers that hire them, property owners that rent to them.

Leave the "Out" door unlocked and wave g'bye as they leave. Just look at AL, AZ and GA as examples; the mere whiff of enforcement sent them scrambling.

CNN.com posted an article in December about how Hospitals can no longer afford to cover illegal immigrants and how much it cost them. They gave the numbers and said that the AMERICANS are the 1's in the long run who must foot the bill. I think they should even be allowed to treat illegal immigrants. Facts are Facts.

Go look up the numbers for the other debts we have thanks to illegals. Welfare for their children is 320 million a year.

Now you know it's not allowed to ask for proof.
I have seen where illegal aliens cost the American taxpayers close to $One Trillion$ each year.
And I am expecting to get that money back from mexico as their forced retribution or I am demanding the USA start carpet bombing mexico city!
