Andy thanks for your response below. Yes I was being a little sarcastic in implying that you talk a good game and I must say you still do. Sure I know you can find illegals that's the easier part. So your saying when we find them to physically bring them back to the border and say adios. Now do you really really really believe this can or will ever be done? Here's a scenario: We find Jose working in L A, we arrest him and find out he's married to Maria who also is illegal, They have two kids born here 8&10yrs old. we also arrest Maria and hold them for deportation. con't----

What about the kids? Now imagine doing this all across the country with 10-15 million people rounding them up. It's impossible it's not realistic and will never happen. So again I say you talk a good game with something that is impossible to carry out. So knowing that maybe you should talk a good game on what should be done in a realistic way.

Let's examine your scenario: Jose and Maria, two illegal aliens, chose to come to this country illegally. While living in the US, Jose and Maria had two children (children that were born to people who were living illegally in the US, and which, by all common sense, practicality, and rights, should not even be granted the status of "U.S.Citizen".) Jose and Maria could have a DOZEN children while they are here, but they are STILL illegallly living in the United States. Deport Jose and Maria back to their native country; and let Jose and Maria take their children with them. ANY other approach, and we have legally opened the door to 1/2 of Latin America.

With the caliber of politicians we have had in Washington DC for the past 50 years- NO. Welcome to Los Estados Unidos de America.... press #2 for English (and be sure you have the education and skill to get a good job in a rapidly shrinking job market)

Andy you just don't get it ! It's never gonna happen you can dream on all you want. Those people are here to stay. You can live the rest of your life ticked off about it if you want or you can just accept it and move on. The only thing we can do is stop it from happening any more, that's where your focus should be. Am I upset about illegals ending up staying here--absolutely but I'm also a realist and realize there's no way your gonna deport10-15 million people.

Well, thanks for telling me where my 'focus' should be..... But I will decide that for myself, thank you. I will go with my statement above: yes, we COULD ("si se puede"!) deport that many people (it would only take a determined effort to deport the first half million or so, and the remainder would self deport) IF the political WILL was there.....but it is NOT. And, yes, I will continue to NOT VOTE for ANY "conservative" candidate who is Pro-Amnesty. I am not 'dreaming'; I am seeing what this country is becoming, and I don't like it. Definitely going 3rd-Party (NOT Libertarian) from here on out...

It would be enough, if employers are oblige to check working eligibility of hired people and gov. empowered that law.
They would deport them self faster then you can imagine.

Likely fellow 2016 GOP presidential rival Marco Rubio has taken some heat from the conservative grassroots for being the face of "comprehensive immigration reform" (or what many conservatives call amnesty). Now it appears Rand Paul is going to the left of Rubio on this issue if you read his column in The Washington Times.

Rand refers to illegal aliens as "undocumented citizens" in the first sentence of the fifth paragraph, which is overly gracious wording not even the liberal media uses. Rand says Rubio's plan for fines and penalties for those who came here illegally as a means of making...
