How critical is it? Why does this issue arouse so much passion? What should our priorities be? Where is the national outrage over "illegal torture" or "illegal wiretaps" ?

The top 1% earns 22% of our national income, the bottom 50% earns 15%. The distribution of our national wealth is the most imbalanced of any industrialized nation; the top 10% owns 74% and the bottom 40% has two-tenths of one percent. The dollar is in the pits and we have mortgaged our national debt to China. No other nation has a greater percentage of its population imprisoned or as high a crime rate. Our infant mortality rate compares to third-world countries.

This (and much more) while the national passion and outrage is misdirected to undocumented workers? Disgusting.
What's disgusting about wanting to enforce the law? People should be outraged! Billons of dollars are going to illegal alien entitlements in the US. And our overpopulated prisons hold many more illegals. Let's at least fix what can be fixed by enforcing the laws on the books.

P.S. Wealth distribution is a byproduct of Capitalism. Love it or leave it but this is not a socialist country, thank goodness.

If he said that he "was" looking for Illegals, he would be accused of "profiling".

inaccurate, this country is highly socialist. Think about that the next time you ride the bus, or drive a car, or drive a car on the freeway, or take a boat past a navigation aid, or use a phone.

Our passion has everything to do with illegal immigration because it has hit so many of us personally...economically, medically, housing, educationally, criminally. Speak to people in border states that have lost everything, they remember exactly what happened way back when the illegal population soared and the systems became overwhelmed and failed them.

It is possibly the most polite way (in French) to say your welcome. Loosely translated, I believe it means I am at your request/service.

And back to the topic - regardless of how dire the circumstances of illegals may be, when they try to capitalize on the charity of another country it leaves people with a bad taste in their mouth. I doubt there is another country where the indigent of other nations come and treat the citizens with such an "in your face" theme.

Let's get rid of the illegally present 'undocumented workers' first, take a deep breath and then prosecute Congress for selling us out.

Congress... 535 reasons to support term limits with NO benefits and NO grandfathering tenure.

Just because the ones you see on TV or on these extremist websites do this, doesn't mean they ALL do.

Much of their "in your face" behavior is in a response to be treated like total crap in the US. Illegal or not, they are still humans and will react poorly to mistreatment.

And I think there are a lot of countries that have these same problems, US is not unique.
