The Problem


An estimated one million illegal aliens enter the US each year.  To date, there are an estimated 8 million to 12 million illegal aliens living and working in the USA. 


There are only 2300 federal agents assigned to the task of detaining and/or deporting these 8 to 12 million illegal aliens.  Do the math.  It would take between 44 and 66 years to reduce the 8 to 12 million illegal aliens to zero.  And that assumes that there were no new illegal aliens entering the USA.


According to the INS, only 412,000 illegal aliens were removed during the past decade.  That is an average of only 41,200 per year.  Again . . . do the math.












Polly Wanna Be President?


Laura Bush bought her husband a parrot for his birthday, and told Dick Cheney, "This bird is so smart!  George already has taught him to mispronounce over 200 words!"


"That's impressive, all right," Cheney said.  "But you do realize that he just says those  words, right?  He doesn't understand what they mean."


"So?  Neither does the parrot."
