A Reader Has Ideas On Deporting Illegals, Even If Bush Has None

I was thinking
about what I`d do about illegal immigration
if I were President….
I think this is
part of what I`d do:
trick masses of people with outstanding arrest warrants
into coming to them. They send out letters to fugitives
saying they`ve won a prize,
like a plasma TV or something. Then they tell them
to come pick it up at such and such address, usually an
auditorium. The group is assembled and then the police
pounce, arresting everyone there.
That`s sort of what
I`d do. I remember a few years ago, some wild rumor got
started in the illegal "community" that the INS
was registering illegals in order to amnesty them later.
That is, when the amnesty came, you had to be registered
in order to receive it. So people in Mexico (or
wherever) wouldn`t hear about the amnesty and decide to
sneak in and say they`ve been in the US for years.
Anyway, that was the crazy rumor. And illegals showed up
at INS doorsteps in droves. The line in several cities
snaked around whole city blocks.
I`d do this. I`d
announce that ICE needs to register illegals in order to
amnesty them later. Then I`d process them. I`d have
groups of illegals go from one station to another. First
station would ID them and see whether they are illegal
or not and ask if they knew where any other illegals
were. Then a group would be brought to the second
station out of sight and ear-shot of the others. Here
they would be arrested and put on prison buses. The
buses would then transport them to planes or boats.
I think probably
boats, because I bet Mexico would at some point refuse
to take back the massive amount of illegals. We`d
probably have to ship them to the coast of Mexico and
put them in
Of course my plan
would probably work for only one day or less. And would
depend a great deal on operational security. I wonder if
some Hispanic ICE worker would spill the beans. Maybe
keep the plan secret from many of the ICE workers
And my plan would
depend on immediate deportation. But I bet I could
arrest and deport a truly massive number of illegals in
Another thing I`d
do; I`d prove that yes it is possible to round up all of
them. At least in a small area.
I`d find a few
communities in swing states where there has been a big
uptick in Hispanics since 2000 and where they are about
10%—20% of the population. Also it`d help if the native
community was up in arms about the problem. Probably in
the South or Mid-west. Then I`d do big raids on
industries there with a lot of illegals, then arrest any
loitering illegal day-laborers then go door to door
asking where the illegals are. Basically do a dragnet of
the whole town. The illegals that were not caught would
be freaked out and probably
get the hell out of Dodge.
Probably the MSM
would go nuts. I`d use the media attention to say this
was just a pilot program and that we`re gonna do this
all over the US. Illegals would freak out and many would
leave. Many similar communities experiencing lots of
illegal immigrants would beg the feds to do the same
thing in their own towns. It`d be great, I just know it.
