  • Pro-immigrantion massive rally is being planned

    Pro-immigrant activists are planning an April 10 protest in 10 cities that could pull tens of thousands of immigrant workers from their jobs. A coalition of groups including the AFL-CIO, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, Catholic bishops, the Day Without an Immigrant coalition in Philadelphia and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will meet today on Capitol Hill to announce their plans.

    Organizers hope to build on recent rallies in Washington; Trenton, N.J.; New York; Chicago; and Philadelphia, which drew more than 100,000 immigrants. In addition, activists, churches and labor unions are planning a national "Day Without an Immigrant," hoping to shut down farms, hotels, restaurant kitchens, meatpacking plants and chicken-processing plants on a large scale in places where immigrants work.

        Look, I am really curious:

        What would happen if estimated 12 mln people applied for "voluntary departure" SIMULTANEOUSLY ?!

        How long it would take to clear the backlog and have them all deported?

                Nah, "voluntary departure" means the alien must leave at his/her own expence.

                    Don't be a dummy, pay attention to essence not some irrelevant to subject matter spelling.

                    P.S. Ok, "expenSe".
                    Satisfied?

                      No expenses? What about the cost of an additional 11 million prisoners? What about free legal assistance to all those accused of a felony? What about trials, appeals and other procedures?

                        Houston,

                        would they be charged with felony if they all went and applied for "Voluntary DEPARTURE"?
                        How could you charge someone who asked to let him obey the new law and leave the country?

                        ____________________________

                        Futuristic scene:

                        Millions of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS picket and chant in front of DHS offices Nationwide, with slogans:

                        "WE WILL PAY FOR OUR TICKETS!", "DEPORT US NOW!", "ELIMINATE BACKLOGS AND SEND US ALL HOME!", "WE DEMAND TO BE DEPORTED NOW!!!", "WE ARE TIRED OF WAITING FOR VOLUNTARY DEPORTATION ORDERS!" and etc.

                          Unless the application for VD is made the very second the bill is signed into law (or at anytime prior to the enactment), the felony offense is committed and a trial must follow if the person is charged.
                          A person who kills another and who changes his or her ways hours later and surrenders to police in compliance with the law will still be tried for the offense.
                          A very ridiculous thing but I'm not the one turning immigration into a criminal matter.
                          Here's where the "warning period" comes into place along with issues of constitutionality.

                            So, I advise ALL ILLEGALS !
                            Apply for VD at least a SECOND before it's signed into law !!!!!!!!!!
                            This way you won't be charged with felony.

                            Good Luck,

                              The curious issue here is that even if indicted, the person would be charged under an newly enacted statute. This would raise the flag of constitutionality in clear conflict with previous and long-standing Supreme Court opinions.
                              So I don't see a future with illegals begging to be deported. I see a future with a collapsed judiciary, dismissals related to the right to a speedy trial, thousands and thousands of cases being sent to the Court of Appeals and unrelated criminal activity being overlooked because of the lack or resources to handle millions and millions of sudden "felony" cases.
