An Interesting Fact About Immigration

“Send ‘em all home” is not a realistic part of immigration reform.  They won’t go willingly.  And if we were to double the available immigration law enforcement resources (time, money, labor) that are being used to deport the over 600,000 aliens who have already received deportation orders, the process would still take twenty years.  Assuming, of course, that no new illegal immigrants come in to the country in that period of time.  There just isn’t infinite money to do this, even if we would really want to.
