Immigration agents catch an abysmally small percentage of the illegal immigrants who arrived on visas but overstayed their welcome, authorities admitted to Congress Tuesday, describing a loophole that those around the globe are increasingly using to gain a foothold in the U.S.

At least 480,000 people overstayed their visas last year, adding to a backlog that’s reached some 5 million total, members of Congress said. But immigration agents launched investigations into just 10,000 of them, or about 0.2 percent, and arrested fewer than 2,000, less than 0.04 percent, saying the others don’t rise to the level of being priority targets.

This is why visas should be cut off to those with the most overstays.

If they were white Christian immigrants the outrage would be a tiny fraction of what it is now. Don't pretend there isn't a large element of race to this.
Pro-illegals always falsely claim that if you don't like illegal immigration then you hate all immigrants, a racist or xenophobe.You making bogus claims of racism about someone against illegal immigration is straight on the illegal alien testicle licker playbook.

I guess a wall won't stop illegal immigration
If a faucet has a slow drip, is it better to leave it on all the way so that the water comes out at full blast or to tightly close it so that it only slowly drips? Most people would tightly close it in order to prevent as much water loss as possible.A wall won't stop all illegal immigration but it will stop most of the illegal immigration going on at our border.

but here's the thing: walls are expensive. And no, mexico will not pay for it.This is a large percentage we're talking about that's getting into our country than just little drips.

1.Cost is no issue to our government.The government spends money like a drunken trophy wife with her husband's no limit credit card. We give close to 50 billion dollars to other countries in the form of military assistance and foreign aid and our government wastes more than on other ****. So the idea that the wall is too expensive is absurd. That wall can easily be paid for in the first year and have change left over hire a **** load of extra border agents to patrol the wall.

Forbes Welcome
According to the federal government, for fiscal year 2012, “The United States remained the world’s largest bilateral donor, obligating approximately $48.4 billion—$31.2 billion in economic assistance and $17.2 billion in military assistance.” However, “obligated” funds are not the same as “dispersed.”


2.Tariffs of Mexican goods and extra taxes on money transfers to Mexico are a great way to make Mexico pay for it.PEople will stop buying mexican goods and that money is spent here or they continue to pay for Mexican goods and that money goes toward the wall.Same thing with money transfers.Either that money is spent here instead of being transferred to Mexico which is a win for us or they wire it to Mexica and the extra taxes go to the wall.



4.Around 40% do come here on a visa in order to deliberately over stay it. That can easily be solved by cutting off visas to offending countries until those visa overstayers are sent back to their countries,. The wall would take care of the 60% whole do cross our border illegally.

Deportation/extermination squads
That's the solution
Might as well deport all the drugs while we're at it

Walls are less expensive than the presence of 10's of millions of needy illegal aliens

The Irish took a serious beating during their immigration years, and they were Christians.

Remember that?

There is a reason they are not white Christian immigrants. They respect our laws and the people of this country and enter legally.

Which doesn't exactly explain why you're wound up about Mexicans, and not Canadians.

Nativism, so predictable. You know you guys say almost the exact same things that Nativists were saying a century ago?
