False. During the Obama Administration ICE was told to stand down and just sat around on their hands doing nothing for 8 years. Sure they had a few things going on but by and large they were working at a much lower capacity than they are now.

Obama instructed Homeland Security not to detain or deport any illegal aliens unless they were "convicted" criminals. He also gave millions of illegal aliens a stay of deportation via DACA and DAPA along with work permits. The ugly truth.

BullS*it!! The last President and Administration did not let the law be enforced! I know first hand. The law is finally being enforced. The current President supports law enforcement instead of criminals!

Default Immigration Reform needed

I stand by Obama's granting of continuation of stays in America with check in with immigration office on a regular basis. Many families have mixed immigration status. Just because an undocumented person is married to a US citizen and has children born in the USA, does not mean that they can remain here as is being currently enforced by ICE.

No criminal record and either a mother with young citizen children or an undocumented husband who is the main breadwinner for a young family/mom citizens. These are not families that should be split up. Many have filed for amnesty or other immigration status, years ago, waiting for hearing date, and ICE is just instantly deporting.

We are indeed an Evil nation if we do not change these laws! I will work to change laws, just as the abolitionists, suffragettes and many others have done. This does not change my status as being patriotic!

Enough of the breaking up families stuff. These people broke the law when they entered the US illegally. Doing so did not confer rights to stay here if they manage to find a mate or have children. Their families can go with them rather than have the family broken up.

There are legal mechanism with which to enter the US. These folks chose not to do that. Sometimes there are consequences for the choices people make.

Do American law breakers get to escape justice and remain with their families just because they have spouses and kids? Why should "illegal aliens" be treated any differently? They can return to their homelands with their families, unseparated. The legal process begins on their own soil, not ours. You can't come here illegally and then expect to bypass that process with amnesty or filing for legalization on our soil after you have already violated our immigration laws.


What's evil about enforcing our immigration laws and expecting immigrants to follow the legal process? What's evil is "illegal aliens" coming here taking American jobs, resources and causing our taxes to go through the roof covering their social costs. Just by coming here and working here they have broken two laws. Using a fake or stolen SS number or working for cash evading taxes are felonies.

Yeah, they're not the brightest bunch. But that's irrelevant when all you care about is votes.

Make no mistake, progressive pro illegal liberals care not a damn iota about law abiding US citizens. Their agenda is perfectly clear, and they are shameless about it. It is disgusting we have to share oxygen with them.
