Suppose you were to ask a 6-year-old to walk from Huston, Texas to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Well that's the distance these children from Central America had to walk to get here and they did it all by themselves and they didn't get lost. Is there anybody out there dumb enough to actually believe that?

250,000 soldiers. Obama wants to bring them back home. What could they do back here except guard the Border?

OK, besides what's obviously wrong with this... how do they think this will be perceived in South American countries? Will this encourage more people to push north? (rhetorical question). It's clear the President DOES NOT want to stem the tide of illegal immigrants at all.

Dems and Liberals what do you think about the message he is sending?

Help me out here...
Why should 'dems' and 'liberals' be giving you an opinion. There are some real conservatives here who actually think for themselves instead of just parroting the opinion that is fed to them by fringe news istes.

The Chamber of Commerce is sending the wrong message. Your concern should be directed at it.

It's fake because I can't tell any more which is real and which is fake. Ever heard of the kid who cried wolf? When you people have an outrage over everything a man does, you are less likely to be taken seriously the next time around.

People turned back at the Border are not deportations though this Administration likes to use funny math to include them as such.

They may be needed to straighten out their own countries.

No. But at the same time, we need legal immigration reform.
I went though the process....my x-husband was not legal.

If I can handle the paperwork......anyone could.

Erect the double layered fence on the most porous areas. No one expects that we can secure the border 100% but shouldn't we pull out all the stops to secure it as much as we can to cut back on illegal immigration?
