Proposed GOP Bill Would Deport All Illegal Immigrants

Republican Senators John Kyl of Arizona and John Cornyn of Texas have proposed a bill that would require all of the estimated 10 to 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. to leave the country. The legislation would give the illegals five years to do so, and if they refuse, they'd face fines of $2,000 a year for each year they stay beyond they deadline if they subsequently left and then tried to apply to immigrate legally, Reuters reports.

In other provisions of the proposed legislation:

*A tamper-proof Social Security card would be created to prevent illegal immigrants from getting jobs.

*Companies that hired illegals would face tough fines.

*Funding would be provided for the hiring of 10,000 new Department of Homeland Security personnel for getting illegals out of the workforce.

*The recruitment of 10,000 new Border Patrol agents over five years would be authorized, as well as new unmanned aerial vehicles, cameras, barriers and sensors along the Mexican border.

*A guest worker program would be created, but workers would only be allowed to stay for two years at a time for a maximum of six years and wouldn't be allowed to bring their families with them.

*A total cost wasn't given, but a fact sheet showed partial costs of over $12 billion.

What do you think of this proposed legislation that would require all the illegal immigrants in the country to leave?

Thats really a hard question. There are many benefits to each side. Many times we end up paying for their health care when they are ill and their children when they have them, and their childrens children. It can be very expensive for our country to allow them, but it can be good as well. Where I live illegal migrant workers are common, they help keep costs down because of the low cost labor. Here the RV and general manufacturing companies love them for the same reasons... now that I think about it, my friends boyfriend's company only employs illegals. Another friend of mine has an illegal cleaning lady. With the extreme low cost for their services they almost irresistable to people. I'm not sure if this makes it okay or not. I'm tired of paying for them, thats for sure, but the question is, will it help us or hurt us to send em back?

Illegal immigrants are so much a part of our society now that rounding them all up and deporting them would be difficult and expensive. They often perform menial labor and lower-income jobs that most Americans don't want anyway. My main concern with illegal immigration is the possible untracked entrance of terrorists through our borders. I support regulating and cracking down on future illegal immigration, but don't believe that kicking them out will make America any better.

Illegal is illegal, too bad it won't fly due to big business demands for cheap labor. It has my vote.

Flying Illegal Aliens out would only cost about the same amount they suck each year from California alone: $11 Billion. Adios! To all those comments IBID: Who picked the grapes before social welfare? Hint, it wasn't the Dominicans or Mexicans. But then again, if we do such a thing, the unions would want even more from the "members". Eisenhower? Operation Wet Back? Who will pay? Hint, it won't be AARP. Try our children. The real question is, will they have to be randomly searched by TSA? Look up "embrace" and "exploit" in the ENGLISH dictionary. Then answer the question if they should go...Uno cerveza por favor.

They have already brought TB back to this country. Let's be compassionate and see what other plague's return.

Uno frio uno por favor

Don't forget about the Leprosy epidemic in NYC. Prior to 2001, in the preceding 40 years in the U.S. there was only 900 reported cases to the CDC and WHO. Since 2001, in the past 3 years alone, there has been nearly 7,000 cases of Leprosy reported in NYC ALONE. The PHS in NYC REFUSES to issue quaratine in and around nail and hair salons, food service areas, hospitals etc due to the fact that such a quaratine would "OFFEND" immigrants and Illegal Aliens, and constitutes profiling. I thought PHS was meant to protect us as well? Good point on TB. Close. Deport. Profile. Discriminate. Quit lower the standards to "improve" the average. Raise standards, raise the U.S. End sanctuary cities. End welfare for all abled bodied Anericans (yes, both those from Americanos de Norte and americanos de Sud.) Racist? Nope, survival rights trump civil rights.

We shouldn't hire more DHS-ICE officers until the ones we have now are fired, and charged with fraudulently accepting public funds for services they have refused to render.

As the Paul Williams, Curt Weldon and Tancredo interviews have indicated, our agencies refuse to carry out their duties, duties that the taxpayers have spent billions of dollars paying for.

The only problem I have with this proposal is that they are given five years in which to leave, this is entirely too long. These illegals haven't assimuilated, they want their own culture and language. I suggest taking able-bodied welfare recipients off the dole and let them do the jobs that would open up.

What a waste. We already have laws that say they should be removed from our great country. Why should I believe anyone will enforce any new law any better then the laws we now have. Round them up and toss them out!!! Put guns on the borders and kill them when they cross.
