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.
I don't fell that there is a great nation left to save, liberals have already killed 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.
I disagree. IMHO, this is a really bad time for Obama to give millions of illegals work permits. We still have 2 years until the 2016 presidential election, so there's enough time for those millions of newly minted legal workers to decimate the job market and wages for the citizen Hispanics. If that's what they really want, let them stew in their own economic demise for two years. Maybe they'll rethink their voting preferences.

Oh boy... here we go again.

Thanks Obama and company.
And "give them the dignity they deserve?" Criminal dignity? It is a bizarro World we live in now.

That is the problem which brought those kids sent by their parents. The hope; when this is not amnesty; just non-enforcement. But it will add to problem with that hope most likely. What provision for healthcare with all those here with visa's and coming? Just go to ER and hospitals make it up by raising price on citizens who are require to have insurance ? Will all be able to bring parents here without normal requirement to fully support including healthcare on Visas.

I don't think the children dumped by their parents should have refuge here, either. They are not "anchor babies", and we need to draw the line somewhere.

And I, too, highly doubt that most low-wage illegals will acquire health insurance. One of my doctors recently told me that he'd been to visit patients in the hospital that morning, 3 of 5 were illegals, and only ONE of that 5 was an insured patient (not an illegal). And they can't track them most of the time because they move around often.

Also, at my last visit to the ER in our local hospital, an illegal in the next bed had tuberculosis, which shocked the physician, and I had my husband pull the curtain out right away. Something else that people do not take into consideration is that diseases are one of the reasons for tight borders, and some illnesses have made a comeback from across borders.

So Obama is executing his grand plan. And, again, with NO security plan for future crossing. The man is a moron.

Default Lady in line at bus says she was inspired to come over...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtpaNhKUBqo

Okay, so the lady says Si about being inspired to come over...

But am I seeing this correctly that those people are in line to catch a bus to their "next destination" AFTER they've crossed over illegally?

I don't understand... why isn't border control there telling them they cannot keep going? Why is border control not sending them back?

The thing Obama dictated was that you'll only be granted leniency if you've been here for 5 years.
I'm confused.

We're talking about functionally illiterate people here. All they understand is "amnesty"---the details don't matter.

The few who do understand just laugh about it. They figure that if they come, The Dear Leader will eventually dictate an amnesty just for them.
