I myself consider Reagan's Amnesty as one of his greatest mistakes.
No proof that Reagan considered it a mistake.

Reagan loved illegals and you guys love Reagan.

Google it. Where is your proof that Reagan loved illegals? Spin, much? So you are speaking for all conservatives now that they loved Reagan?

Reagan's actions and words indicate that he supported illegal immigrants. He was a big fan of legalizing illegal immigrants.

But it's ok, because Republican's have no integrity.
As I said, google it. He lived to regret signing that amnesty because our borders weren't secured as promised. Now you're just getting nasty flaming an entire political party in here.

He gave them amnesty. If that is not showing love for illegals, I don't know what is.

Reagan did more for illegals than any American has down in the past 30 years.

Sometimes lawbreakers get their sentences reduced or those on death row are pardoned. Does that mean they are loved? You are grasping at straws now.

No, Obama has done more for illegals than any other person/president has in the past 30 years. Just look what he has done in the past year alone.

Reagan gave amnesty to millions of illegals, how has Obama topped that?

Let me guess, Reagan was kidding when he gave amnesty, and he really hated illegals, that's why he gave them citizenship.

Do we really have to keep going over this? It's been explained to you over and over. Obama gave a stay of deportation for 1.8 million Dreamies in the past year with work permits. He has also instructed HS not to deport any illegals unless they are "convicted" felons. He also just recently released thousand of them back into our society from detainment claiming a shortage of funds. Why didn't he release non-felon Americans instead? That's a lot more than the 3 million that Reagan amnestied. And last but not least he is pushing for a big amnesty much larger than 3 million with 23 million Americans out of work.

Again, Reagan granted amnesty based on the promise that our borders would be secured and they weren't. He made a mistake and he is no hero of mine for doing that. Why would Reagan have any personal feeling for illegals? He wouldn't know them personally. So what's with this love/hate thing you keep bringing up?

Heck, it didn't stop Reagan from becoming a larger than life icon with conservatives.
we have about 10x's as many illegals. Maybe more. Thats an equivalent to a small country & about the size of an large military.

This is considered an invasion when you have that many people unlawfully here from one side of the border.

Thats more than enough to end a country.
