We should set up a “Deportometer”. It could record the number of times we send someone back to his or her home country. The “Deportometer” can be a little device that mounts on an illegal alien’s belt, just like a pedometer. After all, if we are going to repeatedly spend tax payers dollars on rounding up and deporting someone fourteen (YES 14) times, the least we could do is give that person a “Deportometer.” It appears that there is no penalty beyond deportation for a repeat illegal. So it certainly appears that we have no additional penalties for the recycling of illegals – why would they not keep trying to enter, since there is little down side. Our Congress appears to NOT have fixed this problem, yet they have time to hold hearings on baseball, HGH, and Roger Clemens. Has our President or his Homeland Security Chief requested this stiffer penalty – perhaps, but I cannot find evidence of the request.
You might say, 14 times, impossible. Well according to the DenverPost.Com‘s Howard Pankratz it is possible. The following is an excerpt from his article: A man arrested Monday on Interstate 70 while allegedly transporting illegal aliens has been deported 14 times, Eagle county authorities said today…

It doesn’t take an immigration wizard to understand that unless penalties get increasingly more severe after each deportation, like some prison time, the problem will continue unabated. This problem of illegal immigration is both nutured and fostered by our political parties. Politicians see that giving citizenship gives the vote, for them hopefully. These politicians will sell out the rest of us to acquire the new votes and for whose benefit? Yes, their own benefit. The impact on this nation and its current citizens is meaningless to them. There actions bely any belief that they are serving for the public good. This includes the office of President. When you look at the cumulative history of our current and past Presidents’ efforts on stopping illegal immigration, you must come to the conclusion that they did not and do not want to stop it. Has there been some sort of deal cut with Presidents Fox and Calderon of Mexico? It would certainly seem so. Three of the four presidential candidates are also on record as being very lenient on illegal aliens to say the least. Am I missing something? Are not controlling who or even knowing who enters your country and allowing a deportation game of cat and mouse to run “ad infinitum” good for this country?
Why bother to have any immigration control at the borders? Let’s just stop all this craziness of trying to enforce the law, dumbly I might add, and save all that money. It really is time for a change in Washington and not just the President. We should put brand new fannies into the 468 Senate and House seats up for re-election. This would be real change and not the repeated soaring rhetoric of our candidates for President. Their words are cheap, our votes at the ballot box on election day cleaning out both Houses of Congress to the limit of the Constitution are valuable.
