Here's an amusing but totally unscientific informal poll on how to tackle the illegal immigrant problem.
Students were asked if they would sign a petition to deport US citizens on a one-for-one basis in exchange for allowing illegal immigrants to stay in the US.
Link if video does not play: Deport US Citizens to Keep Illegal Immigrants?
The people who conducted this experiment said about 2/3 of the college students signed the petition.
What does this suggest, if anything, about the quality of our education system? Or is it simply proof that people in general do not listen?
Support for the Plan
Such questions aside, I actually think this is a brilliant plan, with just one minor modification: We have to have sufficient grounds for deporting.
I suggest war crimes are sufficient grounds. More specifically, I propose we deport to an international war crimes tribunal a select group of the worst war crimes offenders.
Top Five War Crimes Candidates
- Former Vice President Dick Cheney
- Former President George Bush
- Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
- Former CIA director George Tenet
- President Barack Obama - for drone policy
Cheney, Bush, and Rumsfeld would be on charges of various war crimes, bombings, and torture. Tenet would be for torture. Obama would be for indiscriminate killing of innocent men, women, and children via his drone policy.
Doesn't that look like a good start?
