Illegal Immigration - The heat was on in West Bend w/Sensenbrenner

Fence?  Perhaps a moat....   Read entire article HERE.

"According to Sensenbrenner, 40 percent of illegal immigrants entered the United States legally with a visitor’s visa, but then don’t leave. 

    “We have no idea who is overstaying (his or her) visa,” he said. 

    One of Sensenbrenner’s solutions is to implement an “exit tracking system,” a program widely used in other countries to document who and when people are entering and leaving. A similar program could provide more accurate information to the Department of Homeland Security and identify those individuals who have overstayed their visas, he said. 

    Sensenbrenner also said he has advocated for raising fines from $100 to $5,000 imposed upon employers that sponsor illegal workers. He is also against offering amnesty to illegal immigrants. 

    Sensenbrenner is also a staunch supporter of the fence being erected along portions of the U.S.-Mexico border, which has been compared to the Berlin Wall by opponents."

Perhaps Mr. Sensenbrenner and his colleagues could give some thought, amid all this "stimulus" spending, to actually funding the dept. of Immigration Control and Enforcement.
Just a thought.
