Joseph George Caldwell, PhD Biography

Title:
Management Consultant
Position:
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“The immigration problem in the U.S. could be solved in about a week, at the cost of about one hundred dollars. How: simply make illegal immigration a capital crime. All that is required is a coil of rope for a noose and some wood for a gallows. Then, each afternoon, hang an illegal immigrant, in public. For maximum effect, the hanging could be in the original British way, with no broken neck, so that the condemned wriggles and writhes. Very quickly, illegal immigrants would ‘get the message,’ and go back home. Will this be done? Of course not. Americans are now too squeamish to lose lives or take lives, even in war… This proposal would in fact save many American lives. Illegal immigrants are criminals.”
