Enforce the law.
Deport all illegal aliens.
Or impeach the president.
Simple.

Some law breakers get sent to prison where they get excellent medical care, cable, job training, schooling, recreational activities. They get meager living quarters and low pay, perhaps we are already treating illegals like the criminals they are.

Or
Maybe illegals are being treated as per the terms of the agreement they have made with fellow criminals?

The President's Press Spokesman said today that Obama wants the Billions of dollars from Congress to "set up detention centers".

"That's why the president has asked for additional resources from Congress to open up detention facilities across the country, where these individuals can be housed in humane conditions," he said.

Earnest said officials are also looking at alternatives like ankle bracelets, and seeking more resources to process cases more quickly.


Obama will be in Texas this weekend - he is refusing to go to the Border to see the Havoc he has caused with his Executive order about Illegal Alien children and release of Aliens from our Jails and Prisons. He is in Texas to do more Fund Raising and whine more about how mean the Media and Republicans are to him. It's no mystery that his approval numbers have dropped like a Stone and that people just don't Trust what he says anymore ... his Cultists are the exception of course.

I just watched a video and here was a comment:

"We invested hundreds of billions in border security and 7 year olds are able to cross that border."

So what has Obama been doing about this issue since he made that comment? Except dispersing them all over the country and hoping no one will notice how bad things have gotten?

He's coming to Texas next week. To visit our borders? No for fundraisers!!!! He's really worried about this folks...

Well -- one good thing about all this -- there is absolutely no way now that Obama can claim that the borders have been secured and are being enforced which was one of the key points he was using to cram his "immigration reform" aka amnesty down our throats.

The borders are very far from secure, there is no control at all on new illegal immigration. It's now such a major farce, those talking points are now meaningless.

I wonder how many would say they have it better in a US prison than they have it at home.

Do I support the president taking executive action on the border?

The same president that had not one but TWO ILLEGAL ALIEN relatives living in the US, illegally?

Can you support a president that refused to acknowledge that he had two ILLEGAL ALIEN relatives living in the US on the taxpayer dime? And even chose to lie about his ILLEGAL ALIEN drunkle living near Boston?

Can you trust a president like that?
