Bush vows to oust 'every single' illegal

President Bush stated his goal while signing the homeland security spending bill yesterday as reported in the WASHINGTON TIMES; by Stephen Dinan and Bill Sammon, published on October 19, 2005; "President Bush said yesterday that his goal is eventually to expel "every single" illegal alien from the United States as his administration pressed Congress to pass a guest-worker program.

Although conceding that the administration cannot immediately deport the estimated 11 million illegal aliens who are here, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Labor Secretary Elaine L. Chao told Congress that a temporary-worker program would give aliens an incentive to come out of hiding and let them work legally for six years before being forced to return home".

Commenty; The U.S. government estimates that the cost of returning a single undocumented worker is $1,700.00. So if you seek to return 11,000,000 workers the cost to the taxpayer will be $18,700,000,000.00. This does not include the loss to the U.S. economy of 11,000,000 taxpaying workers.
