Yes you are right we need to be wise as serpents but harmless as doves

I read a joke a while back that said it best. Calling a illegal immigrant a undocumented citizen is like calling a meth dealer an undocumented pharmacist.
Ever country has the right to control their boarders. If you truly worry about terrorism then you need to know what is coming in.

I think Trumps actual quote was deport if able, imprison if not. The problem there is it implies we have the ability to imprison another 3 million people. Not only can the courts not handle the caseload, but we don't physically have the space. We would have to build new prisons in every state the illegals reside. So really his statement is deport if able, do nothing if their country won't accept them back.

And it begins, lets get all the illegal ones out of here ASAP. If you want to be here do it right and legally and you will be let in.
If you dont want to do it legally GTFO and dont come back.
President-elect Donald Trump’s hard-line immigration stance was a central part of his campaign message in 2016 -- and he said in an interview airing Sunday that he plans to immediately deport approximately two to three million undocumented immigrants.
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes.” “But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.”

They can prove 2 million illegal immigrants are felons?
That’s sounds kind of bazaar
Would that overload the justice system?
overall I just see a humanitarian disaster
...and people aren't just going to sit by and let Trump do these draconian things
a public relations disaster

Here is what I wonder: how does this coincide with the BOP announcing the closure of all contracted prisons? The contracted federal prisons along the border states hold tons of illegal immigrant prisoners that are slated for deportation as the prisons close. Is he just taking advantage of the numbers expected from this process?
If so....that sly devil. If not, looks like Ill have some neighbors moving out in the middle of the night.

I used to be totally for privatizing prisons until they did it and it became obvious it was Worst. Idea. Ever. Do you mean they're going to stop??
Edited to add: here's a link to an NPR article about the closure and why.
