" meanwhile he has deported more people than any other president"

When illegals attempt to come in at border stations and are turned back, Obama counts that as being deported.

THAT is why his numbers look so good.

Obama's saying he's deported more illegals than any other president is the biggest farce pushed onto the American people and some of you fall for it. Reality the truth is just the opposite. He's bent over backwards to allow as many illegals into the country as possible without being impeached for it.

Naturally the Democrats stabbed Reagan and the entire nation in the back when, after the amnesty was granted, they REFUSED to secure the border. And in keeping with their nature they also defunded the Secure Fence Act in 2007.
And this is exactly correct. That's why most Republicans now are opposed to grant amnesty without securing the borders first. To do otherwise would be to repeat the mistake Reagan made.

My hope is that if they aren't stopped and they do get amnesty from the next president that they do move north in large numbers. Then the rest of the country who thinks it's no big deal can have a taste of what they voted for. They'll deserve it and I'll say "I told you so".

Well, Ronnie's kids are now about 12 million strong. I would say that's quite the little mistake. Whoops, who left the door open? LOL! It's about the blow the GOP head clean off like the .44 Magnum of one of their most famous supporters. You guys better hope Trump wins. I hope you become reliable voters.

I see illegal immigrants as victims of circumstance, and that while they tax our country there are much better things we can p*ss our money on.

"Illegal aliens " isn't another term for them, it's the only one.

And the pandering to illegals (and Univision's Jorge Ramos) was typically gag-inducing.

So true.

I'm sick and tired of people in places like Vermont thinking that illegal immigration is no big deal simply because it isn't visible to them in their lily white ghetto.

I'm pretty sure that Vermont also has illegal aliens but; they're "white" from mostly Canada.

I'm from Chicago, with a huge Mexican population, and no one here cares about illegal immigration. There's enough crime from black people and home-grown Mexicans and Puerto Ricans that illegal immigrants are just a blip. We also see them as providing cheap and consistent labor, as well as repopulating areas that have seen a lot of abandonment.
