Wanna bet that the parents of these kids who were the true lawbreakers get an amnesty down the line? Can't have that separaton of families thingy, now can we?
Looks like we just have to live with those who are already here with children under 18. What we need to do is remove the quota system. I say if you want to come to America and can be a good citizen, you should be able to do it - legally - and not have to go through a confusing process.

Regardless of whether we have jobs and resources for them? Why do you think we have quotas in the first place? We have to keep population growth in mind also.

You are absolutely right. Time to get on someone's back. I just sent an e-mail to the president. What have you done?

The White House

Scroll to the right and click on contact. I am looking for ways to contact the rest of my representatives. I am so glad he said what he said today. Nothing like waking up the American people. If those that are tired of this invasion of our country would speak up, we can get this done. Now get busy!

I think we all know by now, all is not fair in love and Politics. Bias a bit, you can say so over and over again. If this were any past President, he would be making headlines.

The news all stations would be all over this, making headlines, putting the Presdient down, Would be in the newspapers front page, but no, not the annointed one.

People i know had him peged from day one. And he sure has not disapointed us.

Yippee! Our town keeps links to the debt clock and the White House. They used to have representatives too, but I must not be looking at the right place. Just put in your representatives names on the search and maybe they will come up too. I don't know about you, but it seems to me that some of these people support the illegals. Maybe we need to let them know if they support illegals, we won't be supporting them.

I had one of those political calls where they were asking what the biggest problems were in America. Immigration was not mentioned, so I told them that I considered all the people in this country that do not belong here to be the problem that would solve a lot of other problems such as crime, unemployment, high taxes because we are supporting these people and nobody ever suggests that we stop doing that. They say we need to stop social security, but they want to keep on paying the medical and housing, etc. for illegal immigrants. I think it is time the politicians start listening to those of us who pay the bills for this country and not just their campaign.

Any unemployed American would be a damned fool if they vote for Obama again. He obviously does not give a single damn about any American. Nor does he give a damn about the duties of his office, to uphold the laws of this country.

So what crime do we reward next?
DUI? Obama has an uncle charged with that already.
Fraud? Obama has an uncle and aunt who have committed fraud.
All the legal immigrants that had to do it the right way. What do we tell them? Sorry we punished you for being honest?
Amnesty for criminals. How did the last one work out?
Amnesty is badly needed. This is hopefully just a first step towards that goal.

Oh yeah that old "Americans are too stupid and lazy to want off unemployment handouts." Got to get a new work visa for the hard working foreigners. And if these illegals were here already working, they were breaking more laws of this nation. What fools the American people have become, King Obama is allowed to just farm out as many jobs as he can, the best president the illegals could ever have!

Just remember your last comment when Obama's kicked to curb in November. Then, you will have no right to complain when the new president starts using HIS powers to implement change. We live in a republic, not a dictatorship. Congress and the President are EQUAL branches.
The law of the land is bull. You don't uphold the law when the law is morally bankrupt. That is when you diss the law just like people did over slavery and Jim Crow. And the Republicans do the same thing. Bush did lots of things by executive fiat including banning stem cell research after he could not get Congress to ban it. Everybody knows the GOP Senate has been stonewalling the Dream Act for years and it is long past time that the President quit trying to convince the Republicans to see it his way and to go around them.
