The only holding camps I would be OK with would be the ones to house them while their deportation back to wherever they came from can be secured. The countries they come from should either be sent a bill for their expenses or have their foreign aid reduced to compensate. It is time for the stupid shit our government does to STOP.
I already have many issues with giving billions of dollars to countries who fuck us up the ass.
I never put the illegal alien problem together with that, thats a good point actually.

The main reason other nations step all over us is because we let them. Then they turn around and call us murderers and thieves.

I guess I'm insane. I wouldn't cry if there was a death penalty for illegal border crossing.

Damn, I thought I was a hard ass.
I just want them out. I'd fully support rounding them up on busses and shipping them out by the hundreds.
But I dont wanna kill them or beat them or rape them or anything else while they are here.
Round them all up, send them home in a box. Pine box or box car...it's up to them. (bill them and/or their families for the transportation, and the bullet if that's their choice)

oh wait...I forgot. Not liking illegal immigrants makes me a racist on these boards.:rolleyes:

So be it.

If by work camps you mean busses back to Mexico, then I'm all for it!

Glad that someone else sees the light. This isn't about hating Mexicans, this is about hating people illegally entering our country! Fuck them.

Ever heard of human rights? Anyone who thinks this is a good idea is insane.

Edit - this is assuming they are prisoners in the camp, which is implied with the sentence "They would stay at the camp until their asylum claims are decided, which could take months or years." If they are free to leave at any time, then it's not really a human rights violation, but still seems a little strange.
Well they are breaking the law. So it would be a prison camp. No human rights would be violated by holding them because they are prisoners who broke the law.

yeah than this is a fuckin stupid idea.

one of the only things gifted to us by being born human is free will.. which to me means being able to go wherever i choose on this Earth... and locking people up for trying to move to another place to better themselves is a crime, then we are stepping on free will...

sorry i'll pass.

An illegal immigrant is not a citizen at all, let alone a 2nd class citizen.

(not saying I think slavery is a good idea, but just pointing this out)

Wow, Americans really hate mexicans, huh?
No we dont.
But we frequently hear that because dealing with the real issue is a topic bleeding-heart liberals cant win. So they call us racists and claim other nonsense to obscure the real issue.

And it works great. Cuz if you're a white american and you get labeled "racist" ANYTHING you say after that is automatically bad and worth ignoring.

How about for the homeless?

I would be all for that......... give them a place to stay that is safe and food and medical for work done.

Get them back on their feet and back into society.

Maybe I'm too much of an idealist.

Cheers,

I know what you mean. You suggest that we round up wet backs and force them into labor camps, and all of a sudden you're labelled a racist. It's so hard being a white middle class American these days.

Lemme see. Businesses or even the government get free labor from illegal immigrants?

Ha. You think its bad now, if that were the case the government would send the Border Patrol to Kansas so the illegals could just come in without that pesky inconvenience of sneaking thru.

Well, I dunno about that, since I didnt suggest we round them up for forced labor. Nor did I suggest we shoot them on sight.
I wanted to kick them out.

We need to tell them that they are all receiving honorary citizenship. Get them to come to a location, put them on trains, and send them back to their shithole.
