No attack. Just can't see how the obvious can be missed. You don't get to pick your own laws.

Everybody should check out their rep and senators on the betterimmigration site.
Please. How many were deported?

They were arrested and then released. Because that is what the law requires.

Yep. You know it's bad when Cuellar says to send them backing.

You make no sense at all. Were you drunk when you posted this?

I think they should be dumped in the Mexican interior.

Just as other developed nations do, we need to send them back. Not sure what any American has to gain by legalizing these people. Statistically this same group has the highest teenage pregnancy rate, highest high school drop out rate and they are among one of the top immigrant groups who send money back to Mexico

Since when did the US become a welfare nation who is obligated to help out foreigners above their own? I didn't see amnesty or open arms for Egyptians or Syrians and they needed more assistance.

I'm a tad but confused when it somehow became our responsibility to take care of people from other countries?

I'm also a tad bit confused as to why liberals take issue with enforcing laws. Why are Americans not allowed to do so?

These folks come to America illegally, uneducated and without skills. How is moving into a foreign country without assimilating pursuing a better life?

All good points.
Enforcing our laws shouldn't be an issue, it only is when you are trying to pander.
It isn't our responsibility to feed, house or save the world. Our FED needs to focus within and mend our own fences.
We shouldn't be allowing uneducated, illiterate non-english speakers into the country for immigration. We produce enough of a burden on our own without adding to it. We produce plenty of criminals on our own as well. We have absolutely no need to import more and every illegal is in fact a criminal to some degree. Some more so than others.
