Nope, wasn't talking about Bush. And Obama didn't lead us into a recession. He inherited it.

I noticed that, and thought "Is this man crazy?" That's what got us into the mess we're in today. I may be wrong, but I got the impression that he's promising low cost loans to questionable buyers again too.

I think we have to address this and yes, some form is here, it has to be. Whether Obama won or we got our choice, amnesty would have been a major issue. Now, it is up to the Republicans to come up with a plan that will work, if anything will. We need a worker/visa plan as well. I have to agree with both Newt and Perry: Perry says, in state tuition has got to be for these kids that were brought here as young children,better that than living on welfare. Newt said, you can't send therse people, who have been here for 25 years, who have entire families here, back and break up the family. Both make sense. Should this ever have happened? NO, it makes me sick to think we just sat back and allowed this, but now we have to deal with it.

IMO, this is just rewarding their parents for violating our immigration laws. The Republicans already came up with a plan. Internal enforcement and removing the incentives that keep them here and continue to attract them to our country. We already have several worker/visa plans. We have 23 milion Americans out of work why would we create more of them?

These "kids" need to go back to their homelands with their parents and utilize the education that we have given them to improve their own countries. Therefore, there will be no breakup of familes. It makes no sense to reward those who managed to hide from the law the longest and that were probably using fake or stolen ID's to work which are felonies. Why would we give them a pass on a felony? Do Americans get that? Also, we need the jobs they are holding. Legalizing these "kids" will just put more foreigners in competition for the scarce jobs that we have. They need to continue their educations in their own countries. There is limited space in our colleges and universities. The breaks in tuition should go to our own kids.

We can still deport even illegal aliens who've been here for 20 years or more. I don't care about "breaking up their families"; if an American did something and got sent to prison, the end is the same. Sheesh!

Illegal need to realise that break the laws of US and thinkig that by doig so they can get at the front of the immigration line is not going to happen again.Amnsety is a dead issue since Bush brought it up again when in office.90's aqmnety was a one time thign as sold to voters and the remided politicians of that and that they still have to seal the borders as in the law.

I rarely agree with you but you're right. They'll be mute protests maybe some angry calls to Congressmen but nothing much. Elections have consequences if folks had a problem with this they should have voted accordingly.

Mexico didn't have any trouble getting them to leave Mexico -- why is it so much harder for us to get them to leave?

All we have to do is what Mexico did.
