Here's one thing that particularly irritates me; half of Americans under the age of 35 are either unemployed or underemployed (myself and 2 of my cousins fall into this category) yet Obama wants to give 600,000 illegals under the age of 35 the right to legally work in the US. What about all the American kids just out of college who cannot find jobs? What about all the high school kids who want to work a job after school or during the summer?

Apprehensions along all borders are skyrocketing. I was recently on vacation in Puerto Rico where I had a conservation with a Border Patrol agent who told me that apprehensions of Haitians and Dominicans are up 500% this year compared to 2013. If this is Puerto Rico then just imagine what it's like on the Mexican border. It's no coincidence folks!
We can deport most of them but our government lacks the will to do so. So the next best thing would be to remove all of the incentives for them to remain here which will result in self-deportations for many if not most of them. Does our government have the will to at least do that?
