Arrest The Billionaires!
The very notion that 11 million foreign criminals or more need to be deported is a red herring, a strawman, a false dichotomy, etc. The illegal alien problem can easily be solved without a massive deportation program.
Billionaires Can't Hide
It’s much easier to arrest the billionaire heads of companies who hire foreign criminals rather than to chase illegal aliens all over the place. And when we are through arresting billionaires, the millionaires who hire illegal aliens are next. We don’t even have to search for which employers are hiring foreign criminals. Rather we offer bounties to whistle blowers who will tell us which employers are hiring illegal aliens. We don’t even have to pay for this program. We fine the companies what have hired illegals heavily and pay for the program out of the fines.
We can set both the bounties and the fines at low levels at first and them ramp them up a bit each month until the reports of the hiring of illegals come rolling in. If any actual illegals are encountered during this process we find out if there are any outstanding warrants and process those who have committed any crimes in addition to breaking the law by entering the country illegal and gaining jobs illegally. The remainder are offered bus tickets to the border if they want them and are politely asked to leave the country in 30 days. Then they are set free to find their own way to the border if they don’t want to take the bus. The only warning we give them is we are coming after EVERY employer of foreign criminals. They might want to return home before all illegal employment in the US dries up.
Arrest the Government!
It is not enough to pursue the law breaker employers. We must also pursue law breaking government employees and government officials who facilitate the criminal activities of illegal aliens. Any government official that aids, abets or supports things like Sanctuary Cities or driver’s licenses for foreign criminals will be subject to immediate arrest and prosecution for conspiracy to violate federal immigration laws. Just as we deliberately set out to put billionaire heads of corporations in jail if their corporations hire foreign criminals, so we will seek to put governors of states into prison if their states support Sanctuary Cities, driver licenses for illegals, etc. The whole emphasis here is to cut off the head of the snake and remove all incentives to break the law.
Cut of the Head of the Snake
We begin with the head of the snake and then we move down over time. So first we target companies that have over 1,000 employees. After we finish jailing all the corporate officers and HR types in those companies that hire foreign criminals, then to go down to companies that have 100 employees. We make sure that everyone knows that we will eventually be coming for the household that hires illegals as day laborers and maids.
And for the states, we start by jailing the governors that promote sanctuary cities and driver licenses for illegals and then we go down to mayors, and finally we get down the clerk who knowingly issued a driver’s license to an illegal alien. Yeah, she’s going to jail too.
As this process goes on and as people see the big fish going to jail, the little fish will begin to say: Not only no but hell no. I am not going to jail for hiring or aiding or abetting foreign criminals. When the jobs dry up, the illegals will self deport. Problem solved.
