Per the bolded --- I agree Doing nothing is akin to lying down and waving the white flag of surrender.

I'll post this link again for those who may have missed it:

You can see where your rep and senators stand on this issue. If they score badly, don't vote for them.

No one is suggesting that we deport millions of illegal aliens en masse. Remove the incentives for them to remain here and many will leave on their own and deport the ones that make themselves known and that is Trump's policy right now. Some in here act like if we can't deport all of the illegal aliens either voluntarily or involuntarily that we should just do nothing and that they should be granted amnesty as a solution instead. That's not a rational solution.

No it isn't. No incentives have been removed. The employers are still open for business.

No one is interested in to your fake excuses for Trump's inactions.

Why vote for them, none of them have done a darned thing? Show me one piece of legislation that they proposed that would punish employers for hiring illegal immigrants. They just want to continue the policy that has been in place since the 70's, pick off a few immigrants every month or so and act like they are doing something meaningful.

They are all bought and paid for, they will never go after employers because they run campaigns with the money they get from them.

Middle class families who work for a living. No wonder so many of them flee that state.

Being in our country illegally is a big deal. Working without authorization is a big deal. Costing the tax payer billions of dollars is a big deal. Yes, why get yourself killed and making your kids orphans over merely being returned to your homeland where you belong?

You ever consider these people's homelands are freaking awful? If they were so great, they wouldn't risk everything to leave

That doesn't give them any right to come here illegally.

For example, say you decided that living in the USA was "freaking awful". That wouldn't give you any right to live illegally in another country.

As long as jobs are here and no one is doing anything about that, they will continue to come.
