Yes -- that would not surprise me at all -- and the only real thing they'll care for is that they get their amnesty anyhow even though their DACA child didn't make it.

The 9th circuit would happily give them class action status.

Why are none of the folks going to San Francisco, DC, New York City, Boston, or any of the other places that are heavily in favor of open borders?

Excellent question. I know that many of the proposed centers in NY were rejected. There's a thread here with a map of the centers (proposed, implemented and rejected) and the SW US, mostly the red states are the ones with the centers. The NE and mostly blue states have mostly rejected any centers in their states. The hypocrisy is very interesting.

Sounds less like hypocrisy and more the Dems trying to flood the electorate so they can never be defeated. Can we ship them to Gauntanamo and cut a hope in the fence so they can flood into Cuba?

I wonder about the real purpose of this push to allow this flood of illegals into our borders. I have thought about the election issue but I think it goes deeper then that. Elections are too easy to control and even rig so while maybe elections are a piece of the puzzle, I think there is much more to it. I do think it relates to a larger agenda pertaining to globalization.

I think we need to just enforce the laws we have in place, secure the border and send these people home. I do sympathize with them and I understand why they have fled their countries of origin but we can't make policies based on feelings and letting them stay will have serious consequences for all of us so we have to send them back and enforce our laws.

I heard a snippet of a speech Obama made about this and he said something like, "Don't make it harder for the best and brightest to come here". I don't think he really believes that the "best and brightest" are the ones coming here illegally. That brings me back to my question of "why?" It goes deeper then elections.

Republican or Democrat, I'd say they all want cheap laborers so that they can save money. Obviously with more uneducated immigrants, there are less outsiders to take skilled jobs and professions away (so their jobs aren't at risk, i.e politicians) but there will be a lot more folks who can work for them and whom their CEO/CFO friends can hire, while saving money.

Then it looks better than those major corporations outsourcing and sending jobs to China or wherever else.

The immigrants coming illegally have no education and they refuse to learn the language. Not sure what they have to contribute other than being underpaid

Obama also said in the same speech "these children on the boarder are the future of our county".

Lawbreaking peasants as our future? Please NO! We have enough "peasants" who ARE US citizens of ANY race.

It is sad to see the invasion cheerleaders show up in this thread It's even sadder to see them denigrate the good people of Murrieta who get how much illegal immigration has damaged this country.

I'm assuming all those invasion cheerleaders have gotten in touch with the government and each of them have agreed to foster at least a dozen of these kids. Yet somehow I doubt it. Most invasion cheerleaders expect others to pick up the tab. In other words, they don't put their money where their mouths are.
