And, NOBODY in government has a "hardline stance" on illegal immigration, except one or two. That's why the states have taken over.

And, may I ask if you're an American citizen? If so, why would you tolerate illegal immigration? It sounds like you think it's a good idea or something.
I think we all agree that the border has to be secured and illegal immigration stopped. What we differ from is how to deal with those here illegally.

I know how to deal with those here illegally. In fact, I wave "bye, bye" to bus loads of illegals being deported, every day on my way to the office!!!

Actually, yes, they do.

They have signage on the side: Department of Homeland Security
Immigration, Customs Enforcement.

That was a whole lot of dribble. Of course you'll find some MSM article that'll agree with your views. Afterall the MSM is so far left it doesn't even begin to reflect the majority of Americans thinking.

Wow! I guess my point really did fly over your head.

Using your logic, those who oppose the war must be in the minority because Iraq is not the number one concern among voters. Do you get it now? Do you see the flaw in your thinking?

Just because someone places the economy ahead of illegal immigration in importance does not mean he isn't concerned about illegal immigration. Just because a majority sees the economy as the number one concern does not mean a minority opposes illegal immigration.

I value my home more than my car. This doesn't mean I don't value my car. I oppose murderers more than I oppose racists. This doesn't mean I support racism. Clear?
