I also have "Operation Return to Sender" in effect in my home.

But instead of immigrants, I use a rubber stamp to send all junk mail back to the sender. My mailman hates me for it.

Opearation Return to Sender is the term we used to reject fat girls in college. Is this the same?
 
2006-06-14 06:24:36 PM
Good. I wish they'd deport more of them.

I'm all for legal immigration, but illegal immigrants really piss me off.
 
2006-06-14 06:24:58 PM
2,100 out of 12,000,000 =0.017%. They're doing a heckava job!

duskglow2000: I'm all for legal immigration, but illegal immigrants really piss me off.

Then you should ask the government to go after the companies that employ them.

Return to Sender? You mean God? The article says they are being sent back to their native homelands but didn't the Lord send them here in the first place? Send them back to God, that dirty jokester of a deity!
 
2006-06-14 06:25:47 PM
2000 down. 11 million to go.
 
2006-06-14 06:26:06 PM
So this means Mexico is purposefully sending illegals?
 
2006-06-14 06:27:44 PM
2,100 down, 11 million to go. No, wait, we need a certain amount of them. Hmmmmmmm. 6 million to go. Yeah, that's the ticket.

/ we're above 'carrying capacity'
// in all seriousness, keep the ones who are already here and tax their LEGAL wages at an extra 6% and put the money towards building a wall/fence/moat/whatever the he// you want to call it

These new pc operation names don't have the same ring to them like they had in the 1950's. You just couldn't go wrong with Operation names like "Wetback," I mean, how could you not know who they were targeting.

maybe they'll get a friendly judge to let them post bail

Wish we could use this in Houston to send all the New Orleans hurricane victims back to Louisiana.

Moments later, agents led a dazed-looking Jose Ferreira Da Silva, 35, out in handcuffs. The Brazilian had been arrested in 2002 and deported, but had slipped back into the country. He now faces up to 20 years in prison.

Rapists face less time. 20 years? Farkin overkill.

They are doing that very aggressively around here, and (of course) the public are OUTRAGED that good conservative christian illegal aliens are being jailed and kept away from their families.

Absolute truth. Neither side will because both are in bed with these businesses.

About time! I'm all for making immigration easier and speedier, but the bad ones that are here now need to go!
 
2006-06-14 06:33:39 PM
Brazilian illegal immigrants?

That's a lot of illegal immigrants!

Operation Return to Sender - Translation: Operation "Look at us! We're Doing the Bare Minimum to Look Like We're Doing Something so Please Vote us Back Into Power!"

Please, if it wasn't an election year we wouldn't even be hearing about illegal immigration. Sadly, this tactic will work on most voters.

/If you vote incumbent this November, YOU are what's wrong with America.

At this pace, how long do I have to wait before the Spanish signs start disappearing from the DC area?

FTFA:
The challenge, agents said, is staggering.

There are more than 500,000 "fugitive aliens" who have been deported by judges and either slipped back into the country or never left. There is often a disconnect between local and state prisons and the federal government that allows illegal immigrants to serve time and be released without being transferred to federal officials for deportation.


Solution: circulate flyers of fugitive aliens in communities
put bounty on each head
deputize local citizenry and let them do the job
 
2006-06-14 06:35:29 PM
"Police! Policia! Police!" yelled Daniel Monico, a deportation officer, holding his badge to a window where someone had pulled back the curtain.\\

Now all I can think about is www.ben-stiller.net

as long as the US exists, bilingual signs will be erect in DC.

More like Operation Get Republican Votes.

Massive deportation? No, this is a piddly gesture done with much fanfare, designed to appease conservatives who are getting fed up with this administration's lax stance on illegal immigrants. 2,100? Let me know when they hit 6 million. Then I'll call it a massive deportation.

It's called the law. Farking enforce it seriously, not with half-assed little gestures.

What's wrong with spanish signs? Last time I checked they were not illegal and also last I heard was that if you don't like businesses that advertise in spanish then you were entitled not spend any money there.

/geez cannot understand why people get so upset when a few letters are arranged differently

The Brazilian who gets 20 years for moving back up here after being deported is still in a better place than he would be in a Brazilian slum. If he had a nice gome in Brazil he never would have left it. These illegals are NOT citizens and should not get the same rights as citizens. Fly them home and kick them out at 30,000 feet. They won't come back then.

PeeWeePangolin: Return to Sender? You mean God? The article says they are being sent back to their native homelands but didn't the Lord send them here in the first place? Send them back to God, that dirty jokester of a deity!

How can anyone blame God for sending them here? God gave us free will. Send them back to God alright, but not in the way PeeWee means....

From the article:

Moments later, agents led a dazed-looking Jose Ferreira Da Silva, 35, out in handcuffs. The Brazilian had been arrested in 2002 and deported, but had slipped back into the country. He now faces up to 20 years in prison.

Ok, so we've established that him being here illegally is a huge drain on society. He does nothing productive and simply drains funds all day long.

The answer to that is to put him in prison where he will become a very productive member of society. He will begin to work and contribute to society, and society will no longer have to support him.

Great plan, guys!!

You must be enraged that smitty didn't use your Freeper buzzword "illegals."

The types who "hate political correctness" usually whip it out and start fapping whenever people use their favorite slur.

Yes.

They pay even less in prison than what whitey pays in the Home Depot parking lot.

Well, he could always stay over at your house. If it's OK with your mom, of course;P

PeeWeePangolinBecause when most stores have everything in Spanish, it makes it a lot easier for legal and illegal immigrants to refuse to learn English.

We're helping them in the short term with these signs and phone services, but we're hurting them in the long run by helping them limit their future to jobs that don't require English.
 
2006-06-14 06:46:45 PM
It's a shame it ever had to come to this.

We seem to have this unfortunate nack of ignoring problems until they rech the point where there's no peacable, efficient or rational solution
 
2006-06-14 06:47:43 PM
"This is a massive operation," said Marc Raimondi, a spokesman for immigration enforcement ...

Raimondi? Show me your papers.

Yeah, because nothing ever goes wrong when you rely on vigilanty justice to do the job for you.

Which reminds me...the only reason we have illegal immigrants is because the Mexicans haven't figured out how to outsource yet.

/it's like they never heard of India.
//i'm sure if we send enough of em back, they'll figure it out eventually
 
2006-06-14 06:50:22 PM
If caught illegals each permanently reduced an originating country's legal immigration quota, their governments might care.

You sound like one of those who biatched about cops nabbing turnstile jumpers and window smashers as being useless wastes of time during the early days of NYC's dramatic turnaround.

If we keep sending them back to Mexico the immigrants just come right back. I'm not patient enough to wait for Mexico to sort itself out.

Deport them straight to India and cut out the middle man

Well, Operation "Let's Make It Look Like We're Serious About Illegal Immigration" wouldn't fit on their letterhead.

Can Puerto Ricans be deported?

If they can, I say they start with J Lo and her hubby.
 
2006-06-14 06:57:24 PM
Just like most Homophobics are secretly gay... I am pretty sure all you Xenophobes are secretly immigrants.
 
2006-06-14 06:57:44 PM
We aren't going to win this thing. Not with the solutions proposed. These fences won't work. "Guest worker" programs won't work. The problem is obvious: they don't want to be in a depressed country like Mexico when they can come to a rich country like the US.
Solution? Annex Mexico or else help bring to power a despot who will keep the people in line and under foot.

I'm open for alternatives. Those are the last two things I want to see happen. I just don't see alternatives that are real and honest.
