It is a reasonable solution, but I don't believe it is possible.
How do you prove that someone has been here 15 years? How about a 16 year old kid, who's parents claim that he has been here since he was one?
What about consistent residency? How do you deal with someone who is here 5 years, goes back home for 5 then back and so on?
I don't think that it is impossible to deport all of the illegals. I don't think that you would have to deport the majority of them. Many would
How about this:
On X date, if you are found here illegally you will immediately be deported. You will not be sent home for a follow-up court appearance, you will go
straight to a detention center and then straight home. This goes for any age, including children. Parents will have to follow their children and
vis a versa
Should you be deported, all of your assets, inclusive of autos, real estate, bank accounts and personnel affects will be seized by the US government
and sold to help offset the deportation costs.
Prior to X date you will have asset amnesty. You can make an appointment, come in, admit your illegal status and the US government will give you all
of your assets at fair market value in the currency of your choice and then you will be deported. Obviously folks would get their affairs in order
and time that appointment such that it would be of minimal disruption to themselves.
Millions would leave on their own.
I would then place a freeze on all immigration for a minimum of 10 years.
How about we think about it this way. When we have invested enough to make Detroit or Newark or any number of US cities as nice as Mexico City,
we'll start letting folks from Mexico into the US. Same goes for other countries - just change the city.
We have millions of Americans living in squalor in this country. Conditions that are far worse in many cases than the third world hell holes most of
these immigrants are coming from. Lets stop spending our time, money and energy on those folks and focus on creating a quality of life for the
citizens of this country.
Finally, Obviously you can not deport all of the illegals. You could deport over 90 % off them however and a zero tolerance for illegals would drive
the most delf deportations.
