Mitt Romney’s immigration advisor, SB 1070 author Kris Kobach, told The Guardian that he’s been discussing the possibility with Romney of a nationwide ”attrition through enforcement” (read: self-deportation) policy if elected president. According to The Guardian:
Mitt Romney has discussed the possibility of imposing a nationwide crackdown on undocumented aliens, a move that his leading immigration adviser believes could force more than a million people to quit the country every year…
Kobach estimates that within the first four years of a new Republican presidency, as many as half of the current pool of undocumented aliens – some 5.5 million – could be made to flee by introducing much more aggressive enforcement of immigration documents.
