we need a federal policy that- the border cops will have an understanding with mexico (not necessarily an agreement) that we will remove all kids showing up at the border, to a special mexican office IN mexico- for that purpose. They will have to deal with it since the kids are coming from their country.

We can't, because that would only make sense.

The problem has never been about what is possible or what is in the best interests of the nation. It is and always has been how do special interests get a cut of the money action. Mandatory E-verify is fairly cheap compared to a fence, drones and hiring a boat load of agents. Having massive fines for violators makes sense, but won't happen. There is a reason the immigration reform bill delayed mandatory E-Verify for 5 years. It is all about pandering.

We can't use tax dollars for veterans programs yet we can house, clothe, educate, feed, and provide free medical care for tens of millions of illegal immigrants coming here, stealing identities and then getting tax payer funded housing, education, etc.

I wrote my congressman and senators yesterday. I wrote my mayor and chief of police. I will write, and I will keep writing until something is done about this abomination courtesy of this moronic joke of a president.
boy have you ever said a mouth full, and I'm not fond of this president either, but this whole illegal immigration started way before Obama!

and by the way, love this post.

Obama may have a point. Look at what they have gone through, how far they've traveled to get to the U.S. in hopes of a better life.

We have American citizens that wouldn't travel out the door to improve their life.

Employers given a choice who would you choose?

well, if that were true, and it was you, you wouldn't travel to Mexico, and take advantage of all the freebies you can get from they're tax payers....you'd become a legal citizen and do your part by paying taxes, and becoming a working memeber of our community, period. What they are doing is stealing then to add insult to injury, they are protesting, b/c they can, which doesn't mean you should, and giving us the finger....how utterly brasen. Plus, you have no idea how many criminals are coming thru those boarders.
Illegal is wrong, period....what is it about that word that no one understands any more?

Yeah, come here, if you like but become a citizen...how bout all those other people from other countries who came here and worked they're butts off to become legal citizens. This is a real slap in the face to them. It is illegal....no matter who says, "Look how far they've traveled".....He is an idiot and apparently doesn't care about setting an example....and abide by our own laws.

Here is a perfect example of what I said.....
and by the way, do you know that terrorists also come thru the same open boarders?????
All the illegal immigrants here are not just Mexican
They're are also drug running smugglers and criminals of all kinds....

http://6abc.com/

Look at how far they have traveled to be in America? Sheeesh?

And by the way, we have a whole lot of unemployed American Citizens right now who cannot get jobs who want jobs....and they would do anything to feed their families....

I do not know where you get your information, however, you should really become more informed....illegals are draining our systems....dry.....

So lawbreakers are to be revered just as long as they attain a better life at the expense of others?
