Most would say you cannot believe anything the Government/Media tells you. OK!
But for a moment, lets pretend you can believe that nearly 40% of illegals are here because they over stayed their Visa's!
Doesn't congress pass laws?
How about a plan to give those Visa over stayers a 4 month grace period to become informed and make their departure plans. Over staying a visa beyond 120 days would be a felony! For every month after that the Government will levy a $5,000. fine/30 days in jail for each month they stay beyond the 4 month grace period. You would then actually see self deportation!
This plan would leave others who are here illegally subject to 1 week deportation by bus to a point beyond 500 miles from the border!
