Nothing else to add really.....the country's gone nuts.

"Twelve million people come here illegally because of the demand for jobs and need for labor,” Pena said. “We want them to go through a process. We want to know who they are. We want to identify them, and we want to make sure they have no malice or criminal intent.”

They may have come here to seek work but there was no demand for their labor except for the greedy employers willing to circumvent our laws for cheap labor which translates into more profit for themselves. So no Pena, there was no shortage of labor here in the U.S. that created a demand for them.

Can't wait to see what Obama does about both Utah and Texas creating their own guest worker programs.

Won't happen. Utah lawmakers are already experiencing blowback.

Texas politicians aren't very serious about getting the budget problems addressed. Illegals are having no difficulty getting over the border and once over absolutely nothing is ever done about them. Once they get their maternity stay in a hospital in, they will never leave and can live off welfare handouts if they don't feel like working.

The welfare cases in Texas are skyrocketing and the state budget is a serious mess.

The elites however want nothing but the cheapest labor. Once a live-in nanny gives birth, she no longer has to work, nor does her boyfriend have to work so a constant supply of more illegals is needed in order to have this cheap very available servant labor.
