In my opinion, both party's should get their heads out of their read ends, stop playing games. And work together on this very important issue.

This is a very crucial situation, that if left undone, our kids, our grandkids, are the ones that are going to pay. We cannot afford to let every tom dick and harry illegal into this Country.

What a novel idea. My mother loved Eisenhower. She thought Kennedy was the end of life as we know it. How can a stay at home mother of five be so wise? I realize now that she was right.

It is a very simple solution. When things go wrong get back to the basics. Declare Marshall Law and go door to door deporting all illegals without documentation. Have the military patrol the borders with whatever means necessary and shooting any invaders. We are being invaded and Mexico just shot at our border patrol. I don't know why this administration does not realize this is War on the USA.

There's a typical liberal response "well Bush did it too". Is it right to allow illegals to swarm across the border or not? It doesn't matter what Bush did or didn't do, Obama is president today (although you'd never know it the way libs blame Bush constantly) and he should be dealing with the problem and not by granting them amnesty, drivers licenses, welfare and free healthcare.

These countries depend on remittance from family in the US to support their GDP.

15% of Honduras GDP is remittance from the US.

You have billions of dollars earned in the US being sent to other countries.
And then you wonder why the US is not improving ?

Central America Border Rush Fueled By Reliance On Remittances - Investors.com
Yes!
This is the real distribution of wealth happening in America - right out of the country.

With Mexico it is billions of $$$ leaving America in remittances that help to fund their economy.

Just kick it down the road. Give us a good presidential candidate that will deal with this invasion and we will all vote for him. And I am not talking about immigration reform I am talking about immigration enforcement. Nothing wrong with the laws we have if they were upheld.

And as one poster put it, if we don't deal with this invasion now our country is finished.

I do too. Eishenhower warned us. Kennedy defied them and look what happened to him.
LBJ was their ticket to the Oval Offce where they have remained since. And they don't care about political parties either..D or R doesn't mean anything to them. Whoever sits in the Oval Office is their puppet.

You are absolutely right, but it won't ever happen until the American people are out in the streets demanding it.
Neither party will ever reform immigration because they have too much at stake politically to lose.
Write your congressmen and women - demand that we ENFORCE the immigration laws we already have, and create a punishment for businesses that hire them.
Boycott businesses in your neighborhood that hire illegals, and tell them why you are doing it.

If we all just sit back and wait for someone else to do this, we will be third world in another decade.
California was number one in quality education a few decades ago, now they are third from the bottom due to the huge influx of illegals.

I don't know. Obama's Uncle said the same thing when he was caught driving under the influence and it worked. Legal immigrants have been deported due to DUI's.
Obama's Aunt was caught living in subsidized housing, receiving benefits, after a deportation order and now she gets to stay.
I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility. Obama just let 36,000 illegals, convicted criminals out of jail. Not deported....

Who is POTUS? His watch and he owns it. It really is that simple.
