Dear Editor,

What did Presidents Herbert Hoover, Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower have in common? Something three presidents have done – but no one in either party now has the courage to do.

This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me. Back during the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work.

Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans. In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called “Operation Wetback.” It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans would have a better chance at jobs.

It took two years, but they deported them!

Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today. If you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself. Why, you might ask, can’t they do this today? Actually the answer is quite simple.

Hoover , Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor, not untrustworthy politicians looking for votes! Reminder: Don’t forget to pay your taxes – 12 to 20 million illegal aliens – are depending on it.

Denny, Thanks for your letter. This website opposes the extension of any taxpayer-funded benefit to individuals who are in the country illegally. However we believe strongly in the supporting the ongoing positive impact immigrants have on our economy, and therefore we support the sort of sensible immigration reform championed by the Cato Institute and other pro-free market organizations.

As it relates to your deportation argument, in 1970 there were 760,000 legal and illegal Mexican immigrants in America – a number that soared to more than 11 million by 2004. While this website wholeheartedly endorses deportation for illegal immigrants who commit crimes, the sort of mass deportation you champion is simply no longer feasible.
