Those caught in the country won't be expedited back, just the opposite. No reason to reward criminals when so many are waiting and have been waiting to enter the US legally.

On major bust was a Century 21 office in San Marcos CA. It was staffed with half the agents being illegals, the agents sponsored free trips to Vegas and got kickbacks from lending institutions, insurance companies, title companies, even home inspection firms in exchange for originating as many loan apps as possible.

Meanwhile, Americans (legally in Mexico) can't buy property in Mexico.

Illegal aliens always talk about families being separated but did they move with the entire family or did they come here alone or with two people...?

Many came here to get their child born on US soil so they came here without a child and were fully aware why they wanted their child born here. They shouldn't act like they were not aware that they could be deported.

How many US citizens have their kids sends to places of war! their families are separated as well as kids that move out of State to study or for jobs.

If illegals didn't want to separate their families than they should have stayed put where they came from!

Even if you come here legally you will not immigrate with your entire family as many will be abroad!

Good.

Maybe word will get out the US ain't playing with illegal aliens in 2017.
You are not an "immigrant" if you are not here legally.

I think anyone who "lives in the shadows" knows that their time might come when they are caught out. It is sad that for the past 8 years they have been given a pass and assurances that the law will not be applied to them and when Hillary wins the election amnesty is just around the corner.

What a bunch of tangled lies that were fed to these people giving them hope but America is a land of laws and everyday across this great country people who break the laws face justice.

These people broke the law and will be separated from their families. How is that any different then a father who is a citizen breaking the law and being separated from his family when he goes to prison? He can't take his kids with him.


It is sad to see a family split up and sadder that they were lied to by Obama and the Dems but we have immigration laws for a reason.

Of course it's about illegal aliens, but that isn't being "PC".

You're supposed to say "undocumented", it sounds nicer.

"Illegal" well that makes it sound like it's against the law.....LOL.

How about instead of drunk driver we say " extensively hydrated vehicle operator"?

They have nothing to worry about. The US is a country governed by laws and Mr. Trump cannot act with impunity. Non criminal citizens should get a shot at legalization and should NOT be rounded up. America stands with hard-working immigrants whose only crime/offense is being undocumented.

US citizens ain't aliens; legal or illegal.

"They have nothing to worry about.", you must be talking about legal immigrants and you are right. I know the liberals have tried to spook them into believing they will be deported, but legal immigrants will not be deported.

You bet it is a country governed by law. President Trump isn't acting at all, he is allowing ICE, border patrol and other law enforcement agencies to do their jobs, he removed the handcuffs that Obama put on them.

It is a crime to enter the US without authorization. Commit a crime makes one a __________? Fill in the blank. Hint: criminal

Non criminal citizens don't need "legalization". What on earth would they be legalized to do as citizens? We would never round up citizens. Where did you get an idea like that?

I see that you are confused by the difference between an illegal alien and a legal immigrant and it looks like you don't understand what a citizen is either. I would suggest that you "google" for that information.

We will not be deporting or rounding up legal immigrants or citizens. We will, however, be chipping away at the illegal aliens, those that have entered our country without authorization or overstayed their visas, both unlawfully present in the US and deportable. Chip, chip, chip, chip................... Goal met!!!!

This has nothing to do with Trump. Trump is bound to support the laws of our country. While I realize the traitor, Obama, did not do this, you see what is happening to the party that refuses to support the laws and the interests of our citizens, right? Going down, down, down!

Not taking their kids with them? What kind of parents (i.e., mostly single women) would leave their children behind? I don't care how qualified the "guardians" are -- I could never ever abandon my children. Those poor kids paying for their parents' lawlessness is shameful. The chances of acting out and misbehaving is much higher than those children from intact families.

All this time I thought Hispanics (and yes, 80% come over our southern borders) were family oriented. Blew that myth out of the water.
