Dealing with Illegal Immigrants Through Attrition

Cross posted from Virtuous Republic

The supporters and enablers of illegal immigration, always argue
against those of us on the other side by saying that we want mass
deportations. They go on to say that mass deportations are impossible
and therefore, the only real alternative is amnesty.

Of course
there is another route to repatriating illegals to their home countries
and that is through attrition. Take away their illicit jobs and deny
government benefits, and their is nothing to draw or keep illegal
aliens in the United States.

D.A. King, an advocate for stopping illegal immigration, has an excellent editorial on this subject:

transparent argument from those who will never relent on the
amnesty-again agenda is that because we cannot round up and deport more
than 20 million illegal aliens by sundown tomorrow (false choice "A"),
the only other option is to legalize them as part of some contrived and
disingenuous "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" program (false choice

know what the reader must be thinking: "Why is he bringing that up
again? The amnesty attempt of 2007 was defeated in the U.S. Senate in

is why: Just weeks after this year's attempt at forcing the now
not-so-trusting American people to accept the legalization option,
another nationwide push began to prepare them for the next one - but
not until the elections are over.

for the "legalization now, legalization tomorrow and legalization
forever" crowd, there is a rather inconvenient truth emerging in news
stories from around the country.

every week Americans paying attention can read news reports from places
where the law is actually being enforced about illegal aliens giving up
and leaving for more hospitable places to look for a better life,
either in other states here or back to their home countries.

Simply put, again: Enforcement works.

many in the amnesty industry, the fervent hope is that either many
Americans don't realize that the legalization option was tried - and
failed - more than 21 years ago, or they can be convinced that Albert
Einstein was wrong when he remarked that one definition of insanity was
"doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different

is past time that pundits, editors and candidates for political office
begin to recognize and discuss the third and seldom-mentioned option:
Attrition through enforcement.

doesn't take another Einstein to recognize that the idea of gradual
attrition of the illegal population through the enforcement of existing
laws while at the same time stopping illegal entries by securing our
borders - at any cost - will work. It simply takes good old-fashioned
common sense. Read the rest here.

in a related story, opponents of Arizona's strict employment law, which
will for all intents and purposes put an end to the mass job market for
illegals in that state, has survived an important court challenge:

federal judge late Friday tossed out the lawsuit challenging Arizona's
employer-sanctions law, setting the stage for a quick second round of
legal action before Jan. 1, when the law is set to take effect.

District Judge Neil Wake ruled that the business and Latino groups
aimed their legal fire at the wrong targets in suing the governor and
the state attorney general. Instead, they should have brought their
complaint against the 15 county attorneys charged with enforcing the

judge also suggested that the lawsuit was premature because there is no
evidence anyone has been harmed. The ruling stunned attorneys
representing the 12 groups that brought the suit in July.

has potentially wide-reaching implications for Arizona businesses.
Under the law any business that is found to have knowingly hired an
illegal worker is subject to sanctions ranging from probation to a
10-day suspension of its business licenses. A second violation would
bring permanent revocation of the license. Read more....

Secure the borders and enforce our laws---what a concept.....
