on which note, it looks like france is paying their immigrants to go back to their home countries. i would certainly be willing to give something like that a try, especially with our "neighbors" to the south. it would be a huge boost to mexico's economy (france is paying the equivelant of about $8,000 for a family of four to go home), which would remove some of the reason for sneaking across the border. we would, of course, have to drastically increase border security, and possibly collect some other information--fingerprints, maybe dna, etc.--to make sure that they didn't just sneak across and collect again with a different name/stolen social security number.
