Border Patrol Vets: How to do it

Illegal migration had dropped 95 percent by the late 1950s after Operation Wetback. Several retired Border Patrol agents who took part in the 1950s effort say the deportation of illegal aliens could be repeated today. Former Border Patrol agent Walt Edwards, a Wetback veteran says,

"Some say we cannot send 12 million illegals now in the United States back where they came from. Of course we can!"

"When we start enforcing the law, these various businesses are, on their own, going to replace their [illegal] workforce with a legal workforce."
While Congress, the Courts, and the White House dithers with Valerie Plame and argues whether or not the homicidal Muslim maniacs at Gitmo are entitled and deserve to be treated better than the average American prisoner while their Muslim Brothers commit atrocities upon the persons of U.S. Soldiers, the Wetback vets think more important actions of greater priority should be taken.
1. End the current practice of taking captured Mexican aliens to the border and releasing them. Instead, deport them deep into Mexico, where return to the US would be more costly.
2. Crack down hard on employers who hire illegals. Without jobs, the aliens won't come.
3. End "catch and release" for non-Mexican aliens. It is common for illegal migrants not from Mexico to be set free after their arrest if they promise to appear later before a judge. Few show up.

B.P. Vets also advocate a legalized guest worker program, allowing foreign temporary workers in their home countries for work here. President Eisenhower had a program permitting 400,000 FTW's per year to enter the U.S. for jobs lasting from 12 to 52 weeks.

We all know it can be done. To think this country can't control it's own borders is ludicrous. The problem is finding politicians in either party with the backbone and will to do it. Then of course you have to get them elected. This is becoming increasingly difficult as more and more illegal aliens are registering to vote.

The truth is the goovernmet is rounding-up the illegals. Everyday hundreds if not thousands,low thousands, granted, but nonetheless IA's are being arrested.

This week, an illegal from Mexico was arrested at home. The cops found he had a barbershop in the basement and 68 IA's were arrested there. As the cops were processing the 68, another 86 IA's showed up for haircuts and were arrested. I'd call that a very nice trim.
