If that's true then no wonder we have to worry about terrorist sleeper cells in our country and our crime rate is so high. That needs to be fixed/changed.

The recent Boston Marathon comes to mind.

The 9-11 terrorists also entered the country legally --- that's how very very lax our legal immigration laws are -- and illegal is even worse.

While I hate illegal immigration more than most, the boston retards were not involved in radical whatever when they came here, that was something that the older brother got involved with after he moved here.

Furthermore, he was actually interviewed by the FBI and was on their radar not long before they acted out.

Also, if you are really so ignorant to think legal immigrants have no background checks conducted, I would like to sell you some ocean front property in North Dakota.

Blame Bush.

Undocumented immigrants to leave El Paso while cases are pending - El Paso Times

President George W. Bush signed a law titled the "Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008," which went into effect in 2009 and created the different treatment for most unaccompanied children from Mexico or Canada and children from other countries.

Unaccompanied child immigrants from Mexico or Canada are sent back across the border, while children from other countries (i.e., Central America) are placed into a different process.

A recently released report by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees "Children on the Run" said that children from Mexico "were promptly returned to Mexico after no more than a day or two in the custody of the U.S. authorities."

I don't know why that bunch was ever allowed to come -- and they were making frequent visits to the region they "fled" for quite some time -- why would a refugee ever want to go home at all? Supposedly they're fleeing for their lives.

There needs to be a whole lot better monitoring of questionable immigrants -- legal and especially illegal. When "refugees" show up from regions that are known as breeding grounds for terrorists, drug cartels, MS gangs -- we should make sure none of these types are getting to the USA.
