Lest we be bamboozled or befuddled by what some who refer to "the reality of our enormous illegal alien population", the following might be of interest. The "Report of the Tripartite Conference" published on August 2, 1945 at Potsdam, contained special provisions on the "orderly transfers to Germany of German populations or elements thereof, remaining in Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary." On November 20, 1945, at the twelfth meeting of the Allied Control Council in Berlin, arrangements were completed for the organized transports in conformity with Article XIII of the Potsdam Agreement. Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary were to send regularly scheduled transports of their respective Volksdeutsche into the then boundaries of Germany where the German civil authorities of each zone of occupation, in cooperation with the military occupation authorities, would receive them. This organized movement of transports was scheduled to begin on December 1, 1945. It was agreed to ship about 28,000 persons per day, the whole operation to be concluded by July 31, 1946, so that the anticipated transfer would amount to six and one-half million persons.
The official transfers, however, were only a part of the total expellee movement. The population census taken on October 29, 1946, in all four occupation zones and in Berlin registered 9,688,000 expellees.
So let's not hear anymore nonsense from Congress or any other quarter about the impracticality of repatriating most of the illegal aliens while replacing some with legal immigrants who have abided by the law.
