Our legislators seem more preoccupied with legalizing illegals than keeping them out in the first place.

It would seem that way.

Still waiting for the Roll Call vote to be posted.

30 odd years of neglect is managed effectively how? I'm thinking today is the day to address the neglect and close the canyon when the doorway is ignored.

The argument that we can't find and deport millions of Illegal aliens is an insult to intelligent people.....and imbeciles as well.

It's a Red Herring repeatedly trotted out by supporters, defenders and apologists for Open Borders. Illegals will self-deport when our immigration laws are stringently enforced, instead of ignored.
Rewarding, encouraging, or turning a blind eye to the illegal invasion only encourages MORE illegal immigration. The solution should be----Temporary Work Visa programs for workers, NOT wholesale Amnesty for scofflaws.

Citizens justifiably chafe under the societal and tax burdens associated with the illegal invasion and the overtaxed Medical, Educational, Law enforcement, Social services, Healthcare, Judicial, Court, and Penal systems; they rightly deplore the disrespect, the demonstrations, marches, demands, and the flying of foreign flags on our Nation's soil; the murders, rapes, and assaults; the drunks repeatedly released to maim and kill on our roadways; the drug running, the gangs, and the brutal violence; the imperious demands for precious citizenship, the rampant identity theft, the cultural transformation of entire neighborhoods, and even small towns; and the realization that one Political Party in particular, and it's supporters, betray this Nation in their quest to buy votes.
This, and more, enrages citizens and patriots.

Instead of breaking and entering, flying their flags and making demands of their neighbor; illegals MUST confront and demand dignity, liberty, and opportunity of their own corrupt and inept governances. Then, might they earn the respect and support needed to address the contemptable mismanagement of their homelands, and transform their naturally gifted countries (ocean resources, oil, timber, labor force, agriculture, precious metals, archeological treasures, minerals, natural gas, tourism), for the enduring benefit of the citizens.

The enabling of scofflaws is destroying our sovereign Nation--and only delays and undermines the true and satisfactory solution for all Nations involved: take back the reins of power, and expose and hold accountable their reprobate 'leaders'

As it is, Americans must expose and confront our own venal and arrogant Quislings, who betray their Oath to defend the Nation, it's Laws, borders, and Constitution---in exchange for cheap labor and bribed votes.

American citizens issuing the predictable and disingenuous charge of: "bigots" "racists", "oppressors", "xenophobes", "inhumanitarians", and worse; are exposed as 'progressives', liberals, Utopians, bleeding-hearts, and subversives, who foolishly undermine this Nation---and who should consider relinquishing their citizenship....to an Illegal of their choice

Oh, puleeeeze elaborate. Let's see. Babies, or young children were brought to America by their parents. They grow up here; go to school here; work here; and 'here' is the ONLY home country they know.

If they were going to harm you they would have done so already.

This is about allowing those who had no say in how they got into America, and who have lived by the laws of this country, to enter into the military or attend college, and start the path to becoming a legalized American.

Oh, and don't even pull that "they're breaking the law by being here' card BS. What? Is a toddler going to march back to the country he was born in? A 10 y/o then? A teen-ager who is culturally American?

I just cannot believe this.

I am also waiting to see this info.

Whoever votes for this just about wrote themselves out of a job if they have not been canned already.

Again, the majority of us do not want this to pass yet they still get the votes?

Is anyone listening to the people at all?
