Why do we even call it "illegal" anymore, when we just let everyone in? I recently spoke to a border guard from Texas at a family reunion. He told me that they are not allowed to stop anyone, unless they feel threatened. He also informed me that the majority crossing from Mexico were NOT Mexicans trying to feed their families, but muslims and Central American drug dealers. Thank you Obama!

What exactly is this so-called "reform" anyway? It will always be against the law to come here illegally that won't change nor should it. So someone please explain what it means by our immigration laws being "reformed".

My thoughts exactly. This should have been a unanimous decision to get those maggots out of this country. I don't understand how an ILLEGAL Alien would be even considered to have rights to be in this country AT ALL, and to have even ONE Justice to vote in favor to keep them here is just despicable.

We need to remove those Justices that voted in favor to keep them here, just like the Illegal Aliens that are here ILLEGALLY, kick them out. They are not doing and justice to this country or to the legal law abiding American Citizens.

Even the usually liberal-leaning readership of The New York Times is applauding this action by the Supreme Court, to judge by the highest-ranked readers' comments on the Times' article about this decision.

Best comment, and one that says it all:

"This is a nation of laws, not an Obama junta."

Of course, we can now expect a hysterical, whining Times editorial to appear tomorrow that will be worse than a three-year old throwing a temper tantrum.

Good question. And I wish I had an answer.

We already have numerous laws concerning Legal Immigration. Very generous laws. The most generous in the world.

Now, if Obama and the open borders crowd thinks those generous laws are far from adequate ... well, ok.

Then I reckon the proper response would be to explain why they are inadequate and what exactly should be changed. Then debate it and let Congress approve it.

Instead we get this endless theater of the absurd where by everyone goes out of their way to thwart the laws and then declare the system broken because nobody wants to enforce it. People wail and scream because others simply want to follow the law- which is very generous to begin with.

Yup...we need to stop the flow of illegal immigrants before we can even discuss what to do with the ones already here. IMHO, we need to start deporting them right now.

Did Americans think that all those illegals building their houses, working in restaurant kitchens, doing most construction jobs, working in the food industries would remain single and celibate?

This problem has been ignored by both sides of Congress for as long as I can remember. They can damn well fund the rounding up of people who have overstayed their visas and require e-verify and make it work.. Deport illegals. Their kids can go home with them. That is my take on it.

But, I am informed by DD that American developers want some of Central America for vacation resorts. So they are creating instability with crime, driving people away so they can get the land cheaper. So they come north.

This is a complicated problem that needs serious attention now. And the do nothing congress wants a raise because they cannot live on 174000 a year.

My idea of Immigration reform is the Wall, and Authority to use "Deadly Force" to enforce border integrity.


Obama needs to know that he does not speak for the Nation without the approval of the people, and not just the will of a select group of idiots.

And right now, the only one who wants to do it is Trump. If they vote Hillary in, these same Liberals will be crying in a few years, about all the Illegals , the crime, and the lack of any work at all, and it will be justice served on a platter. They can cry all they want, if they have a safe place to do it, since they will also have as many Radicalized Muslims born out od the Thousands of Muslims they want to import along with the people climbing over our fences.
