Is deportation a good solution to illegal immigration?

      "I’m pro-deportation or if you want to use a nicer word, pro-repatriation. You cannot have a defeatist attitude towards the problem and have a solution. The repatriation of illegals must begin with a recognition of the problem and a plan. We may be called names, but the names our grandchildren will call us will be worse when they have to live in a destroyed country. There must be a multi-faceted approach, including arresting illegals and also cutting off social welfare programs to them."

      The debate we are engaged in presently is a good and necessary one. However, a solution based solely on enforcement is not... The current flow of illegal immigrants and visa overstayers has made it extremely difficult for our border and interior enforcement agencies... Despite a record performance on deportations from ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] the past two years, at current rates it would take nearly 70 years to deport all of the estimated 11 million people living here illegally, even if not a single new illegal alien entered our territory. Attempting to deport everybody is neither feasible nor wise."

I would love to hear from those of you that have read my first blog on this topic.
