Back in 1986 It Was "Unrealistic" To Round Up And Deport Three Million Illegal ImmigrantsTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
.... So they were given amnesty -- honestly labeled, back then -- which is precisely why there are now 12 million illegal immigrants:
As a result of the current amnesty bill -- not honestly labeled this time -- will it be "unrealistic" to round up and deport 40 million or 50 million illegal immigrants in the future?And by the way, in the same article quoted here, Thomas Sowell asks if we remember that 700-mile fence that Congress authorized last year, the one that only two miles of it have been built.
If the current immigration bill is as "realistic" as its advocates claim, why is it being rushed through the Senate faster than a local zoning ordinance could be passed?
And yes, that should tell us something about how seriously the government is going to enforce other border-security provisions in the current bill.
