The division in this country along political party lines is more disgusting than the illegal immmigration, national, debt, and healthcare/SS/medicare fiascos COMBINED! Americans are too stupid to realize they are being divided on conqured by the same tyrannical crooks in both parties. I despise Clinton and Obama as much as I despise the Bush family and Donald Duck from Hollywood.

OBAMA IS OUR CURRENT LEADER GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The past is the past!
While I agree with you first paragraph, identifying one person as the problem is disingenious. Hold all politicians accountable including the candidates that are running. What is Romney's position on this? What politicians do we have that are renouncing this. Please name names. I might consider voting for them.

You are correct. Here is a snippet from the Time article. They will be the next victims of evil America according to the left. Gays will be cast aside as Obama has raked in all the campaign dough he can from them now.

"‘Why haven’t you gotten deported?’That’s usually the first thing people ask me when they learn I’m an undocumented immigrant or, put more rudely, an “illegal.” Some ask it with anger or frustration, others with genuine bafflement. At a restaurant in Birmingham, not far from the University of Alabama, an inebriated young white man challenged me: “You got your papers?” I told him I didn’t. “Well, you should get your ass home, then.” In California, a middle-aged white woman threw up her arms and wanted to know: “Why hasn’t Obama dealt with you?” At least once a day, I get that…"


Yes the first thing everyone always ask someone who looks hispanic is why haven't you been deported. This is the insanity we will be hearing soon.

The first thing they do when they get off the bus in Mexico is find a way to get back in to the US.

Why dont you actually solve the real problem, employers actively recruiting illegal labor. Most are not here to figure out some way to game the system or commit crimes, most are here to work. You get rid of the jobs they are seeking, they no longer will come. Period.

Why is the solution always trying to round up all the illegals, instead of going after the businesses with authority that actually has teeth?
Businesses have been gone after. What are you talking about? Were you living under a rock when all those raids occured? Just another thing that Obama put a stop to. The thing is that it has to be proven that an employer "knowingly" hired illegal aliens. Many times it was the personnel dept. that did it without the owner's knowledge or the illegal provided very authentic looking fake documents. That is why we need e-verify across the board to put a stop to them and the illegal aliens. They are both equally guilty! Illegals need to be rounded up just like the employers need to be reinged in.

You have to wonder why these illegals don't attempt to go through the legal naturalization process instead of breaking our laws. It shows that they don't respect America right from the get go. There is no reason they can't go through the process like others.

Romney's position on illegal immigration is that he opposes amnesty and opposes the DREAM Act for young illegals who attend college, but supports it for those who join the military. He favors aggressive enforcement of laws prohibiting employing illegals so that illegals will lose their jobs and self-deport.

I do get upset at the continueing trend of the government ignoring laws when it suits their purpose. Indeed Bush did the same thing and Romney will also which is why states will take this into their own hands.

As an aside, I never understood how it is that an illegal could have joined the military. Can anyone explain this one to me?
