Why not give the illegals what they ‘demand’?

Illegal aliens held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody at a Pennsylvania facility have started a hunger strike to demand their release in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis.

“On Saturday, the open borders group known as the Movement of Immigration Leaders in Pennsylvania organization announced illegal aliens currently held in a York, Pennsylvania, facility have started a hunger strike to demand their release.

“Those who should be released from ICE custody, the group writes, include illegal aliens who have pending deportation orders. . . .”

I don’t understand why such demands generate any controversy. Dwight D. Eisenhower — an enormously popular president — solved this problem quite handily 65 years ago, in 1955, with “Operation Wetback.”

Bus them to the Philadelphia Naval Yard, or — if it’s easier — to Norfolk. Once there, load them aboard an amphibious transport, or — if it’s cheaper — on any cargo steamer available. Carry them to a point a few hundred yards off the sunny shores of the Yucatan, then use landing barges to transport them far enough ashore that the water is waist deep, drop the gates, and give them precisely what they’re asking for: “release them.”

Particularly in the case of criminal illegal invaders (yes that’s redundant) whose cases have already been adjudicated — who “have pending deportation orders,” where else on earth do they EXPECT to be “released”?

    Better still, release them in Argentina, which has a labor shortage and is willing to take them in. That will get them safely away from the troubles of Central America. Besides, they won’t be able to drive north across the Panama Canal!

    I agree with my learned friend Leslie Fish, but my own preference would be Tierra del Fuego. Both Argentina and Chile (which share ownership of that island) are eager for more people to populate it—and it’s already Spanish-speaking, so win-win!

    And trying to swim the Drake Channel? I’d love to see them do it!
