It's just lip service. Nothing will happen, nothing will change. They are saying what they know we want to hear. No one has the balls to do the politically incorrect, especially politicians.

It's just pre election posturing. The GOP is just as eager for the Hispanic vote as the Dems. Means nothing.

It absolutely is, and if I became aware of such a criminal act I would feel duty bound to report it. I would not expect much action as a result, however Moderator cut: please calm down

It seems like anyone could get married and all of a sudden that is supposed to mean something when it comes to deportation and illegal immigration. Should it? If an undocumented person cheated to get here and got married as a result, should that marriage be taken into consideration when there are talks of deportation? No, I don't think it should and it shouldn't matter if the legal spouse knew about the person's status.
And if the couple is really a couple, and really meant any of that "for better or for worse" then there should be no problem with the US spouse relocating to Mexico (or other country) because love doesn't only have to exist in the USA.

I think any of these marriages is a sham when the US citizen spouse would not consider a relocation to the country of the other spouse.

And the GOP won some of the "hispanic" vote because not all "hispanics" believe in open borders and that the USA should be the only nation without immigration laws.

New Mexico for example - a woman running who believes in border enforcement is "hispanic" and her opponent was non-hispanic but believed in open borders.

So not only did "hispanics" vote, some ran for office and some won. It doesn't mean all "hispanics" want unlimited illegal immigration.

Illegals are banking on amnesty during the lame duck session. Theyíre already preparing for their celebrations. Gutierrez wants Obama to bypass Congress and issue an Executive Order for amnesty. His contention is that Hispanics are responsible for Obamaís presidency and for Reidís victory in Nevada. According to him, itís now payback time.

At the same time, he sent a warning to both parties about the Hispanic vote in 2012, and asked President Barack Obama to bypass Congress in implementing immigration reform if a Republican House doesn't let it happen.

That's true, however every poll I have seen conducted among Hispanics the vast majority are illegal alien sympathizers. Myself, those that I do know also fall among that majority and they admit it.

Once again. As we have seen when cities or states crack down illegals self deport to avoid being arrested and the possible consequences. There will be no need for 12 million arrests.
However perhaps our elected reps will pass a law making it legals to sieze all assets of any illegal caught to help offset the cost of deportation.
Perhaps they will pass laws with teeth that will punish anyone who hires an illegal.
Lou Barletta has a well known history for going after illegals.
