Our taxes pay for the air handling system in City Hall.
Atoms that we paid for processing end up in the bodies of City Council members!
Therefore, FOIA requests should be made by the News-Press for any action taken by a City Council member while taxpayer-paid-for atoms are in the members bodies!
In fact, the News-Press could just request a direct plumbing connection from the privies at City Hall, where many taxpayer-paid-for atoms end up, right on to Scott Steepleton's desk.
I'm sure his inquiring mind wants to know exactly what is in the poop and pee excreted by City Council members.

Unimagintives, literals, and two-dimensionals don't seem to get noun-ification.

The illegals said to the poor, the meek, and the sick: rise up, don't let nounification oppress you! The rich, the brazen, and the confident disagreed.

According to the OED, `illegal immigrant' dates from 1939, first used to describe Jewish people who settled in British-controlled Palestine.

I lived for a while in Switzerland, in Suisse Romande. A visitor once stayed for 2 weeks with us. After 1.5 weeks, a local policeman came to our door, and asked for the documents of our visitor, to see if they were in order. The policeman saw our radio not he counter and asked (politely) for proof we'd paid the radio tax that year. Luckily we had the little receipt from the post office.
Switzerland is a police state, don't let anyone fool you. A polite, well managed police state. Americans wouldn't stand for that level of policing.
But I think we need a systematic effort to get national ID cards out, very high tech, with enough funding to cover the usual objections... that is, really good canvassing of poor areas of the US with honest bureaucrats who work hard to sort out the fakers from the true US citizens who happen to live outside the normal bureaucratic records.

What lightweights you are, 88 & JarvisJarvis. To successfully deport 11 million illegal immigrants, there will have to be a huge, enormous government undertaking. Lawyers will get rich. Whining about how it happened in the past counts for nothing. Only real, honest to goodness plans, including a strategy to find the $300 billion to do it count. Otherwise, you are pissing up a rope into the breeze. Well, you love the warm feeling and the smell, maybe that is what you are all about.

And when the police grab you, JarvisJarvis, and give you the $250 ride to Mexico City, you won't call a lawyer and start filing a lawsuit? Of course they'll say all your proofs are counterfeit, hey, for illegals like you, it is guilty until proven innocent.

The cost of sending illegal residents home would be high... LA Times estimates $285 billion or more.
On the one hand, that is much less than the cost of the Iraq + Afghanistan wars. On the other, it is still a lot of money... where will it come from?

No, Raymond Morua made the price much higher than it should have been.
