Is deportation worth the money.

Posted by: TBR

Deporting 10m immigrants estimated at between 250 billion and 600 billion. Various schemes have a net gain for the coffers. Does it make economic sense to deport?

  • Yes, because we save money by not having to support the illegal and their children. We also don't have to spend $$$ to keep them in prison.

  • Unless its for a violent criminal, no.

  • Let's invest that money in programs that naturalize more immigrants and let them become members of our society, which is obviously what they want if they took the risk of coming here.

  • Why deport when you could use methods to prevent illegal immigration or help integrate them into society?

  • It isn't a fiscally responsible thing to do.

  • It isn't. But summary execution is, because it removes the chance of them coming back.

  • Use the money to stop illegals from coming in the first place

What do you mean?

I mistyped the description a bit. Somes schemes for amnesty will make money.

@actionguy777 - Wow, you have really bought the line haven't you. This concept has been debunked time and time again. http://money.cnn.com/2014/11/20/news/economy/immigration-myths/

I don't think that your title and description necessarily make sense together. The title asks if deportation is worth the money, and the description asks if it makes economic sense. The thing is, it may not be for economic reasons that people are being deported.

God some of the answers on the 'no' side really piss me off... Execution? Really? Can't tell if serious. "Use the money to stop illegals from coming in the first place" - lemme guess: build a fence?

Supporting illegal immigration is fiscally irresponsible as it supports unsustainable fluctuations in our population. Furthermore, supporting these illegals punishes those who are attempting to come over here legally. If you want to come to the United States, get in line and wait your turn.

People are indulged into liberal myths about immigration.
Haroush says2015-08-16T12:22:13.5348743Z
To make things worse, we are allowing illegal immigrants who are career criminals to commit crime, after crime and get away with it. What kind of message does this send to foreigners who are trying to do things the right way?

@Haroush - I hate to do it, but... Try dealing with the actual topic. You voted "yes". Support that, not just talk about "liberal myths", of additional immigration. What about THIS topic.

@dmussi12 We need to make an example out of those illegals. If we kill enough of them, their countrymen will decide that it's safer to stay home. Also, they're here against our laws. If they want to be here so badly, they can do the paperwork like the legal immigrants did. Sure, they don't have much of a chance, but it would be better than coming in illegally and opening themselves up to all kinds of reprisals.
TBR says2015-08-16T18:41:47.1240298Z
@Forthelulz - You are so much not worth the debate, but making immigration a death penalty case would prove death penalty supporters have no rational connection between crime and punishment.
Forthelulz says2015-08-16T18:44:50.8152073Z
They're not entitled to protection against cruel and unusual punishment. If anything, we could turn them over to psychopaths and whatnot with the condition that the illegals be dead when they're done with no skin off our backs. Also, making it as disproportionate as possible proves we mean business.
