Too Many Illegals? Mr Bush, It's Time To Be Like Ike

Click the title bar for the piece from the Christian Science Monitor.

In the 1950's President Eisenhower managed to reduce the population of illegals in the border states with a massive roundup. Why not do the same today?

on June 17, 1954, what was called "Operation Wetback" began. Because political resistance was lower in California and Arizona, the roundup of aliens began there. Some 750 agents swept northward through agricultural areas with a goal of 1,000 apprehensions a day. By the end of July, over 50,000 aliens were caught in the two states. Another 488,000, fearing arrest, had fled the country.

Worked then. Will work now

I'll be back
