Land mines? Shoot on sight? Yes, we have a huge problem, but y'all speak as if these aren't actual human beings. That scares me more than a zillion people crossing illegally. If you (general, not talking about a specific poster) can look a desperate human (man, woman, child) in the eyes and blast their head off then I'm much more afraid of you than I am of them. Think about it.

If he does it now (as in before the end of the year), he both avoids pushback from a Republican Senate and leaves a lot of time between shamnesty and the 2016 elections, when people hopefully will have forgotten all about it.

Sickening.




Oh it will not be forgotten and even will be part of the theme of the 2016 elections.

Why would any POTUS, who has the interests of the USA in mind, want to dangle a carrot that will cause "hordes" to run for the border? Is this what Obama wants?

Does he hate the USA (especially the border patrol)?

Wouldn't it make sense to do and say things that send a deterrent message?

This may be Obama's dumbest move yet... or smartest if he is actually trying to destroy the country.




Remember he's already done this before.

They are coming for the amnesty and welfare benefits.

I'm not a advocate of using violence on our southern border but sometimes it might be called for. What if ISIS were coming through there? How do we detect a regular illegal alien from a terrorist? Still, "stop or I'll shoot" would be the appropriate thing to do first in other words warn first. Terrorists are human also but what has that to do with anything? Most of these illegal aliens aren't desperate either. Think about it.

Can you not read? I very plainly stated that it's not feasible.

Nothing else will prevent the swarms of desperate poor from crossing our border. They ARE watching what Obama will do very, very closely.

Why are we obligated to take care of the rest of the world's poor illiterates? Do you not understand that if enough of them are here, they will overwhelm everything we have to dole out?

Don't worry. All of the illegal alien butt-kissers will soon get their wish. We will soon be a Third-World nation overrun by the ignorant poor who will then proceed to add millions more.

We can kiss a once-great nation goodbye.

About the send a deterrent message. Yes if your anyone but Obama. He won't because he does not care truly about this Country, or it's citizens, and that is plain as day.

Other Countries are starting to get tougher with their problems, but no not us, WE INVITE, now the welcome mat has been laid down. And our troubles have only begun. Just wait, we have not seen anything yet.

Exactly, as you say. But they do not even see it this way. That is just crazy. It is these parents tearing their own families apart but somehow we get the blame.

Only militarized borders are really secure, can you afford/accommodate literally millions of 3rd world peasants with their hands out ???

Didn't think so.

Obama's Hispandering is only making everything worse, let's not play games and call it for what it is, a surrender to foreign invaders from Mexico and Central America that make up about 75% of this issue.

The idea, is that once the kids are given amnesty, they will either send for their parents, or their parents will come looking for them to be anchored in the U.S.
