Since When Can’t the Government Find People?

Ever since the Immigration Reform Bill debate began, we’ve heard Kennedy, McCain, Bush, etc. saying that it’s a practical impossibility to track down 12 million people and deport them.

Is it impossible? Tom Tancredo says “no, it’s not impossible.”

As for the tracking down part, would the government say it was a practical impossibility to track down 12 million people who, say, declined to pay taxes?

The United States is tracking terrorists by the bushel in foreign lands and in caves halfway around the world, but when it comes to illegal aliens in Philadelphia, New York, San Diego and Los Angeles, they “can’t find them”?

Maybe a good place to start would be one of the rallies.

As Neal Boortz said, the government doesn’t lack the ability, they lack the will.
