It's 57,000 plus since October of last year.
How much do you really think it's going to cost this country long term?
I am not against them staying, I'm not against deportation, I don't have an opinion yet, but would love some serious thought and common sense to be applied to this discussion.
I'm not racist, nor a pub or dem, I just don't think anyone knows what to do, and I certainly don't.
Deportation is expensive. Finding people once you start deporting them is going to be very difficult and increasingly expensive. The only economical way to prevent illegal immigration is to prevent corporations and small businesses from hiring them. Enforcement would cost money and it would mean lots of government audits, but it could conceivably work
Big picture though, illegal immigrants really dont cost us that much. They work here, they buy things here, they pay taxes here. Those working under the table without a SS# dont pay all their federal taxes, but they typically work low paying jobs anyways so the government isnt missing much. Those working with a fake SS# pay all their taxes and then dont take as much out of the system in terms of benefits.
To be honest, I dont see what the big problem is. They come here to work, not to mooch off the system. If anything they are probably exploited by shady management practices more than they exploit the government
