    I suggest to give the DARWIN Award to DONALD TRUMP for suggesting to deport “11 Million people”.

      Why would we do that? To just give up and give in, is pathetic. If after 4 years, only 1/10 are deported, we’ll be off to a good start!

      With a handle like yours I consider you a racist anyway. How, come we Americanos can’t immigrate to SA and take over the welfare system there? Answer, because there is none.

      I suggest we award Manuel the stupid post of the day while we deport 15 million people who are in this country illegally.

      Yes, that was a massive fail on Trump’s part. He should have included deporting all the Democrats too.

      He needs to do just that! This whole situation has thrown our country out of balance. If you can’t see that then you’re looking through prejudicial eyes.

        In case you didn’t know, you should refer to an earlier post debunking your myth of Presidents deporting immigrants. On the other hand, the hero of the Tea Party. RRR, did grant amnesty to millions of immigrants.

      Manuel, remember, this is not an original idea. President Dwight Eisenhower did a mass deportation of illegal immigrants back in the 50’s.

    None of these are Darwin Award worthy since not one person died and took themselves out of the gene pool.

    Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the
    deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately
    Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens
    after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans.In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans .
    The program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took two years, but they deported them!
    Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today.

    Trump for president

      The Mexican gov. Actually initiated the return of immigrants, and the US Gov. assisted in the early 1900’s ,the US agricultural industries were actually RECRUITING Mexican citizens ,so to try and compare our issues now with what happened then is unfounded and plain ignorant.

      This distortion of history has been going around for some time, but has picked up momentum as the immigration debate has heated up again. So we contacted researchers at the Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower libraries to ask if the historical record backs up the claims that these presidents ordered mass deportations. It doesn’t. We also consulted the Office of the Historian of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and a leading academic historian as well. We got the same answer. This e-mail message is bogus.
      The true history of presidential policy toward illegal immigration, and of deportations, is neither as simple nor as successful as claimed.
      Hoover did not use immigration policy to “create jobs” and never “ordered the deportation of all illegal aliens.” During his four-year presidency, roughly 121,000 persons were officially deported or induced to leave through threat of deportation, according to our analysis of official statistics. (We explain our sources and analytical methods fully in the “Where We Got The Numbers” section below.)
      Truman did not try to “create jobs for returning veterans” by ordering deportations. In fact, he signed legislation protecting the rights of Mexican migrant laborers recruited legally to help harvest U.S. crops, and was unable to win congressional approval of measures to crack down on employers of illegal immigrants. During his nearly eight years in office, about 3.4 million were deported or left “voluntarily” under threat of deportation.
      Eisenhower did not deport 13 million Mexicans. Only one-tenth that number was ever claimed by the federal officials in charge of “Operation Wetback,” and even that figure is criticized as inflated by guesswork. Officially, just over 2.1 million were recorded as having been deported or having departed under threat of deportation.
      Historian Mae M. Ngai calls the message “a most interesting distortion of history,” and our research backs that up. Ngai, now at Columbia University, told us that “none of these presidents presided over any general deportation campaign.”
      So this e-mail’s claim that a president could “sure do it today” — that is, easily deport all the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants now in the U.S. — is a conclusion based on false evidence. No relocation effort nearly so large has ever been attempted, let alone accomplished “in two years” as this e-mail states.

      I forgot about Hoover, so I stand corrected. There were three Presidents that deported the immigrants. Now if we can deport the Rinos and the Democrats, we would be pretty well off.

        Steve, It is nice to be a “good speller”, However, the human body is well apt to take what your eyes see, and fool your brain to read the word, correctly, as long as the first and last letters of the word are correct. Have you ever seen the letter that addresses this anomaly. The full page is writen in this mannor, and after a word or two, you are able to read the entire page with no problem.

    Never mind the illegal aliens – it’s a problem too big to handle. What I want to comment on is all you folks who want Trump for president.

    Think this through, people. You may be a believer in American exceptionalism, but hardly anyone outside our borders does. Read an occasional international paper, and see how roundly hated Americans already are. Donald Trump could easily get the whole world to hate us, not just most of it. We are strong, but we are not invincible if the enemy is large enough. Trump would be the best recruiting tool our enemies ever had. He is a major fool, no matter how many billions he has.

    Why not incarcerate all the fine entrpeneurs that hire undocumented workers? These people come here to work not for “Freedom”. Never hear the RW media suggest that solution. Let’s remember, it is illegal to hire undocumented anyone.

    C’mon people…illegal aliens are not just a bunch of wantabe Americans… they are here illegally. There is a right way and a wrong way to become an American and they are not interested in that or else they would have applied for citizenship, learned to speak English, and try to fit in. Being proud of your relatives or ancestors culture is admirable but if you are here for any other reason…go home!

    Americans are already paid twice what they are worth…If you want more, become marketable…Let’s see, universally, we’re already paying MORE than the minimum wage. You want to increase the wage from 7 or 8 bucks an hour to 9, 10 or 12 bucks an hour…? All you’ve done is hurt small business and increase the minimum standards for poverty…Are you really that dense to think 2 or 3 dollars an hour is going to help ANYONE…? So, you decide to make it 20 bucks an hour for the minimum wage…? You people are simpletons….Socialism is another name for the new democrats…And they don’t have a clue…Sorry, is social progressive a better name for you democrats…? I can’t keep up with your name-changes…!!!

      You are welcome to your opinions and insults. The use of facts is vastly preferable and all economists who do not believe that tax cuts pay for themselves agree that raising the minimum wage increases growth and solves a number of other problems. BTW even the new Republican/Conservative picked head of the CBO has stated that tax cuts do not cover the revenue shortfall they create. He was chosen because he was willing to use “dynamic scoring” a bit of Conservative sleight of hand to justify more tax cuts for the wealthy.

    We should depart Obama for screwing up the health care system in this country. Obama Care, what a joke!!!! It quadrupled the health care premium while the benefits went down by fold folds. That’s who should be deported, Obama. Just wait and see when the health care premium doubles again next year making insurance companies richer, while the middle class get crushed in the middle. Good for unemployed though. Great job Obama!!!

      You should try getting your facts correct instead of mindlessly parroting
      RW talking points. While you are at it, learn proper word usage i.e. depart=deport, four=fold. Healthcare costs are rising at the lowesr rate in years which is extending the life of Medicare. I suppose the really sad part is that you believe what you wrote.
