"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

France and Denmark are leading the charge to forcibly deport failed asylum-seekers and illegal immigrants. Britain and Spain are said to support the measure also.

French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy told his 14 EU counterparts meeting in Copenhagen on Friday that an enforced repatriation programme would encourage other unwanted migrants to go home voluntarily, diplomats said.

"If there is only the choice between leaving voluntarily and staying on, we will not have a lot of success...It is only natural to work together to solve this problem," Sarkozy told reporters, adding that the EU needed to find the financial means to implement the proposals.
