Federal authorities are preparing to deport a million illegal immigrants, a top Trump official has said. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said ICE officers would target a million people who have been handed 'final removal orders' by a judge. Speaking to Face the Nation on CBS he insisted that ICE officers were just 'doing their job' and said deportations 'should be going on on a rolling basis', amid fierce political tensions over immigration. President Trump last month promised that 'millions of illegal aliens' would be removed from the United States.

This is good news.Illegal immigrants drive down wages for the poorest American citizens, with lots of help from the US Chamber of Commerce, appropriately abbreviated as the CoC. The CoC, which is basically the bosses' union, cares about nothing but business profits and are more than willing to push US citizens further into poverty to do it.
I’m not so sure these people are contributing to the economy. Most are criminals, other than their illegal status.
Why do Mexican illegals get special treatment for their line cutting ways?The truth is Democrats/Leftist love illegal aliens and the current immigration system (which they could’ve fixed from 2008-2016) because it creates a dependent class of poor losers who will continue to vote Democrat (legally or not). That doctor from Poland waiting to come over the “right way” may not vote Democrat since he wouldn’t be dependent on welfare to survive.
Illegals are not here for our benefit.Most of them are here primarily to drain cash from the US and send it to Mexico. Legal immigrants don't send nearly as much out.

Even if they're low wage jobs and some of the illegals are unemployed, taking 1 million people out of the economy will have some detrimental economic impact. While they may be evading taxes and using government provided resources, it's impossible to avoid sales/gas tax, all of which every illegal is paying. They're also paying rent (property tax). This is a lot of money for local economies. That's why these sanctuary cities are all up in arms. They've made their own bed,...
Americans will take their jobs for higher pay and thus pay more taxes and stimulate the economy more. Plus less crime and tax evasion. Many send the money home so it flows out of the US which is not good. These raids are huge wins.
The higher pay will pull from corporate/business profits though.
WookieMan saysThe higher pay will pull from corporate/business profits though.Wait are you making the point that the business environment would be worse off if illegal aliens left?
Ultimately the businesses will just charge more for their product and the consumer will pay more and the owners make the same amount. Or they'll cut employees to offset the increased cost of their overall workforce. It ultimately won't hurt the business, but there's a higher likelihood less people are working if wages are higher. Less spending from them on other things. It trickles all over.
Do you honestly think the overall economy is better off because of illegals? Let's not concentrate on the micro level and examine individual firms, I'm talking about the overall economy.
I don't think they should get special treatment for cutting in line so to speak.
Why not just have our guys go after the ones actively crossing the border and extract what we can from the current illegals living here.
We need to send a message as a deterrent. Right now, illegals rightfully believe that they are basically off scott-free if they can sneak across the border. So people will keep trying unless they know the government and society will continue to pursue them even if they successfully break in.
crime is rampant in Mexico,
I have argued with pampered pooch females about how they do work "Americans won't do." I then tell the bitch that my mother picked strawberries in the summer, later was a chambermaid to spend summer in Nantucket island.
I’m mostly in agreement with Wookieman. Give those who have shown good faith a path to citizenship, and toss the criminals. This accomplishes the goal of removing illegals from the workforce, since the people will now have either a legal status of Americans or they will be Mexicans living in Mexico.
The system here is entirely dysfunctional; the people who come on tourist visas who never leave are not caught and deported; why not????

know several illegal alien females who had medical issues; one had surgery before having her anchor baby; another two have diabetes and an illegal boy I know went up to Stanford for free cancer treatment. Well, nothing is free; we taxpayers paid for it.
sunnyvale's proposal is absurd
Quigley saysI’m mostly in agreement with Wookieman. Give those who have shown good faith a path to citizenshipFuck, no.
removing a million people will bring some shock to the economy.
Illegals are a drag, but I'm guessing if you did the math, it's probably a net gain economy wise if they stay.
