Liberals don't understand that concept of "overwhelming our resources".

What do you think we should do?

It's not Hispanics I have issue with in fact many would appreciate the chance and they are willing to work unlike many Americans.

People here already claim they can't get out of poverty and we've already lost the war on poverty. So we are supposed to take on more?

How about you get some of those deadbeats off welfare so we can make room. Blame these types.

You, as a Christian, have the right to help people with your money and your help will be in line with your values. However, expecting others to pay for the influx of immigrants in the form of higher taxes, loss of jobs, a lowered standard of living, etc. based on your Christian values, is not ok.

I already answered this. We need to enforce the laws that are already in place.

People in America already getting help need to get jobs so we can help others. Does that work for you. Versatile, liberalism (giving free rides to capable people) is coming back to bite you if you want to help them.

I'm not religious, what I am is a sane and rational person. I try and avoid making decisions based on emotions and consider the consequences of my actions. The consequences of allowing these kids to stay will be severe.

Exactly. I have a heart and I have compassion but I'm also a realist and I know that opening the borders will have disastrous consequences and in the long run will end up causing more harm then good.

This is the result of a corrupt government, and why it's important to hold our own government accountable for wrong doing.

I do feel bad for them. But being that we are already overwhelmed at home with so many people on welfare, low wages and high taxation we shouldn't take them. If they stayed here there are people who will take advantage of them. The whole thing is sad.

Sure would be cheaper for some of you apply to be on a firing squad. They are going to die when we send them back. Save money and put them out of their and our misery.
