Illegal immigrants are not millions of individual fish that must be caught one at a time with single fishing poles, bobbers and hooks baited with a juicy tidbit. Instead, they are schools of fish that simply need to be driven into nets. Drop a few predatory fish-eaters into the waters and the entire school will move, based on nothing more than self-interest.
