'Let's be honest': There will never be enough jails to solve immigration

Here's a tidbit of truth you don't hear very often from our nation's border enforcers, from Fox News, no less:
"Let's be honest, there isn't enough jail space to incarcerate everyone who crosses that border," said [T.J.] Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council. "If everyone demanded hearing in front of an immigration judge, it would bring our system to a grinding halt in a matter of days."
He's right. As a practical matter there's no conceivable way to expand incarceration capacity enough for enforcement alone to solve immigration problems, and no free society should desire it.

I wonder how that 'guest worker' program is coming?
