a fun idea that probably wouldn't fly

as you've probably figured from reading this blog before, i am strongly against illegal immigration. but i've just had a really fun thought about it. starting march 31st, or some other random date, keep track of all expenses related to illegal immigrants. then, at the end of a year, we send their countries of origin a bill for the expenses. i wouldn't expect any of them to actually pay it, but publicizing the results would definitely be interesting.

on a somewhat related note, here is a very interesting look at our relationship w/ mexico, h/t say anything.
