Cut Them Off and Send Them Home! Ingraham Proposes Immigration Reform Plan Even Bill O’ Reilly Thinks is Nuts

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham has a fool-proof plan to ‘solve’ America’s immigration woes – simply make immigrants so miserable most will want to leave on their own and deport the rest en masse.

“First thing you do is starting deporting people, not by the hundreds, not by the dozens, by the thousands,” she told host Bill O’Reilly on his Wednesday show. “And that means entire families, not just a father or a mother. But we keep families unified by deporting all people who are here illegally.”

She then proposed a measure to stop children born in this country from automatically becoming citizens, making it much easier to force entire families back to their home country. “I think there has to be an end to this thing called birthright citizenship, some people call it anchor babies,” she continued.

Ingraham then explained how she would also punish employers who hired immigrants and make it impossible for them to find shelter, banking services, or anything else they need to survive.

“Why are you allowed to enter into a rental agreement to live in this country?” she asked O’Reilly, convinced her plan would save the country. “That should not be allowed. So, there are a lot of common-sense steps that we can take.”

O’Reilly responded by insisting that not only were Ingraham’s plans ‘draconian’ but they would likely spell the end to the Republican Party if they were ever enacted.

“You do that kind of a draconian action, mass deportations would be draconian,” O’Reilly told Ingraham,” the Republican Party would become obsolete.”

“I think that there is a better way to do it without destroying the Republican Party which absolutely I believe would happen,” he added, pointing out making millions of people’s lives a living hell and forcing families to be homeless is hardly sound immigration reform, even by Republican standards.
