WHEN THE U.S. SAYS IT'S AGAINST ILLEGAL ALIENS, IT'S NOT KIDDING! Debra here. According to an article in Popular Mechanics, our government has already put together a plan on dealing with visitors from another planet. And it ain't no "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" plan.
Nope, our ambassadors of goodwill are planning to "whisk [the aliens] away to the Department of Agriculture's Animal Disease Center on Plum Island, ... [to be] be poked and probed by doctors from the National Institutes of Health." To add insult to injury, we're towing away their car...er...spaceship, under the belief that it may be nuclear-powered and consequently dangerous.
The article concludes, "Skeptics often ask why UFO sightings seem to take place only in remote locations instead of on busy city streets. Perhaps ET knows what earthlings have in mind when it lands."
