They both have voting records favoring illegal immigration; just like the Party leadership. Show us one Democratic candidate that puts Americans first!

If the Republicans were serious then we would be having votes on e-verify. Republicans are no different than how Obama was. Say one thing but do another.

You have no room to condemn.

There are many Republicans that have always favored cheap labor. That is why it is so difficult for President Trump to succeed. But the Republicans do have some members that have broken with the McCain crowd. My PA Republicans are pretty good and I hope that we get another strong supporter of immigration change in November. I know I will be voting for him.

The problem with the Democrats is that they are all talking the same line; there are none that are bold enough to fight the leadership. New faces, to the Democrats, is simply repackaging the same old product!

He is NOT even trying.

Sanders supported enforcing the borders.

What other modern President kept a list of their campaign pledges and attempted to go down the list? Most forgot who voted for them the second they took office! Just because he has not been successful does not mean that he is not trying. Show us the Democrats that will help him succeed.

Enforcing borders is only one small part of the problem; not that we should not enforce our borders. What we should do is force all the politicians to negotiate so that these issues do not have to be resolved by any President. Make our Representatives work for a change!

He isn't trying. e-verify is never brought up for a vote nor does Trump push it.

Politicians represent those who vote for them and most are as extremely partisan as they are.

The majority of Americans do not favor illegal immigration: http://thehill.com/opinion/white-hou...e-dreamers-too. Like our President said: "Americans are Dreamers too".

Our political representatives represent their own issues first; American issues come last!

E-Verify does little or nothing to stop or slow down the flow of drugs through the open or semi-open borders. That is why i don't care about e-verify as much as I do about building the wall, as well as other means to stop the flow.

Maybe not but they aren't interested in addressing the actual problem either.

If you want to change the subject, change it elsewhere.
