Texas Governor: Since Jan. 1, 'We Have Had More Than 20,000 People Come Across the Border' | CNS News

...apparently 800k illegals living in Texas alone.

This should be one of the 2 or 3 major issues in 2016. It should be now but we know Obama is encouraging this.

Of course the number is still huge. It's like adding a small town every day. With talk of amnesty no wonder they are pouring in.

IMHO many of those "Mexican" illegal aliens may be from deeper in LatAm in 2015 but, call themselves Mexican to avoid trouble from the REAL Mexicans.

Obama's new employee thinks illegals have as much rights as Americans to have the jobs in America.

I saw that, Jess5. Disgusting, isn't it? Let's hope that she is never confirmed as AG.

Long time lurker here, but feel compelled to post. I'm a lifelong Texan and like many other legal citizens here, am sick and tired of my tax dollars being spent on benefits/programs for illegals while our veterans are left by the wayside. The gov't wastes so much money, yet demands more to build "holding" facilities for illegals that are top of the line while our border schools go without textbooks. Sickening. I call my reps on a weekly basis and include an extra call to McConnell and Boehner's offices every few weeks. I'm thankful that Ted Cruz continues to fight for his constituents but Cornyn is just another RINO. With a new governor and lieutenant governor in place, Texans may get relief from the burden illegals has forced on us. All we can do is pester our reps and hope they do what is right.

Who would have thought Democrats hated the environment so much.
