As opposed to being angry with a system that you followed yet 12 years later....
The immigration process is broken, it needs to be tossed out and replaced. I don't trust the buffoons in charge now to do it though. Instead they'll botch this whole deportation thing up and cost us billions in taxes and we'll still have illegal immigrants.
Start with extensive punishment laws for illegal immigration. No deportation, 20 years prison with no chance of parole for the first offense.
Do you really think immigrants will stay if they know getting caught means 20 years in prison?
Not to mention price per individual for incarceration is EXTREMELY inflated, otherwise budgets get cut.
It could easily be done for $10,000 per individual.
They will stay because they know we don't have the funds nor the facilities to hold them.
FYI prisons are already overcrowded unless you want to spend billions more to build them.
Also in 4 years Trump would be gone and you could forget a stupid plan like that then.
Wrong. That is what it costs NOW. If anything the cost will go up.
