Why do we even need a new bill? Just enforce our laws on the books.

Why can't the dems "cooperate"?

This is crazy. Why does the congress have to do anything? Obama is responsible for enforcing the law. There's no need for any reform, aka, amnesty.

Once again your right as usual. Yes we do have laws in place already. But if they are not being enforce, what the hek good are they.

Laws are in place for a reason, if they are going to be overlooked, why have them!

Just because Obama doesn't agree with the bills passed doesn't mean that none were passed. This is once again Obama lying. His my way or the highway attitude is what the problem really is.

And yes, I also agree with you. It has been from day one, Obama's way obey me, or hit the road Jack.
And he wonders why, he gets no cooperation, gees, I wonder.

You see what happens when the situation is so out of control, and when it makes headline news now every night. Obama springs into some form of action. A little too late. We are in a terrible predictiment.

How long have they been ignored. Listen to these folks and one would think the borders only became open over the last 6 years. Immigration laws have been ignored by every administration in my lifetime. Only now do people want to know why

Who are these folks? Go back 8 years and the same people have been posting. This administration is the owner of it today.... Obama doesn't get a free pass because Bill Clinton was weak on enforcement.

It is like a festering sore. A little cut you won't be too concerned with but once it becomes a full blown infection you notice it and take action to cure it. Nothing more and nothing less. Our high unemployment records of late and dwindling taxes and resources plays a role in it. Our changing demographics with millions not speaking English is also a factor that makes one take notice.
