It is just like anything else. It comes to head and becomes intolerable and that is when the public outcry occurs. You must have a short memory not to know that there was outrage during the Bush administration over this issue also. I blame both parties and several decades of administrations that have allowed this situtation to accelerate and become intolerable today.

No need for snide insults. There was no such outrage at this level regarding this issue during Bush's administration. Other than that, you just confirmed what I said. Glad to see you agree ~

Why now? I think double digit unemployment of Americans and the coming end of unemployment benefits to many Americans could have a lot to do with it. Plus the fact that the sheer numbers of illegals keeps growing and growing, there are tremendous numbers of people pouring over the border - they don't care what the unemployment rate is - they know where the welfare offices are.

It was one thing when they could tell us the unemployment rate was 4 or 5% and Americans saw few illegals, almost didn't know they existed. What was a small rain turned into a torrent. There are no limits of how many should come as far as the open borders crowd is concerned. If 75% of Americans were jobless and running out of time, the open borders crowd would only insist we need to open the doors wider and let the entire population of the world's 2 billion impoverished in to take jobs and government handouts.

The open borders side does not care one iota about the rights or lives of Americans is why. They believe there can be no laws of any kind, and they lack all common sense and believe that just be getting all the world's poor into the USA, every problem will be solved for them.

If the previous administration filed a law suit against Arizona I'm sure we'd have the same level of outrage.

I didn't consider my remark to be a snide insult. The Bush administration was only two years ago and unless someone was living under a rock they should remember the outrage over this issue that occured then also. The phone lines in congress rang off the hook when amnesty was proposed.

Hence why they only recieve "priority mails" today. Liberalism has done it's damage and the WH acts accordingly, they are, (liberals) dismissed.

The WH wants rooted teeth, not decayed molars whom has spread such foul stink. The urgency of liberalism has been it's urgent destruction. Ha, the WH used them for portrayal, gathered it's momentum to only slap them down becasue of thier lunacy, of course.

Watch, don't listen...

Watch...tick tock....

Don't be mad, be GLAD. We're addressing the situation now, once and for all. Many laws, many laws to stop this insanity are erected as well as being enforced.

Watch, don't listen.
