Democrats and Liberal are always taking heat and then we have this subject. Dem and Liberals along with Repubs all enjoyed the quality and cheapness of the vegetables but it is Republicans that hire them.

Where'd the money for that 600 million dollar embassy in Baghdad (that we might soon be abandoning) come from? Found that money too, right?

You found that money...you'll find this money.
Nope, we are just running on fumes. Massive debt. I would not have chosen to do any of the things that you are talking about in your post.

You are however are proposing that we open the borders so can you provide details of how this would work? Can you answer my questions instead of deflecting.

If you agree with this then you are also agreeing with their coming in according to immigration laws. That's how they came. They stayed on Ellis Island until they were checked out. I am hearing about many people getting ill. These people are threatening our health. I don't blame anyone for trying to get in. I blame our government for aiding them.

The real question everyone is asking you???
How many illegals are you willing to throw open the doors of your private residence for? If you are willing to share the wealth of this country with criminals why not start at your place? You can provide clothing, food and shelter to a group of down and out disease ridden people thinking you are their Messiah. What a power grab that would be. Just think of it...a family of 7 could share your bedroom while you camp out in the living room. Happy, happy, joy, joy!
I already stated that i would be glad to pay an additional $50.00 per moth.

I want details of how we can afford your plan.
Use those Fema camps. You first go there and get educated or you stay there.

Now answer my question. Where are you going to draw the line? If you allow these kids to stay and a million more show up in the next couple of months what is your plan then?
So? What's your plan?

And it is the middle class that pays for their housing, food, and medical care while the companies rake up the profits. The load on the shoulders of the middle class is too heavy. When our backs break the country will collapse.

You paying $50 a month isn't going to provide for even one illegal's expenses so I'm not sure how this would be a good plan for the millions that will be coming across the borders once they realize that they can.

No one would've chosen to do any of the things i talked about.

Except that, EVERYONE (or damn near everyone) DID choose to do those things and now deny doing so.
