Advocates of unrestricted immigration, environmentalists, some border state officials and even a few congressmen are pushing President-elect Barack Obama to halt construction of the 670-mile fence going up along the Mexican border - or even tear it down completely. Their urgings come despite Obama's 2006 vote for the Secure Fence Act and the congressional immigration debate drama of 2008 that made it clear the public expects the fence to be built without delay. The anti-fence forces are encouraged because Obama's pick for secretary of Homeland Security, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, is one of them and may try to halt or further delay construction of the $2 billion barrier.

That would not be a good idea. Even though the souring economy has reduced illegal immigration to its lowest level in 30 years, some 2,000 people still enter the U.S. illegally every day through our still-open southern border. The new administration should also use this temporary lull to crack down on the 45 percent of legal immigrants who overstay their visas. There's plenty of unemployed Americans seeking work to fill the jobs left behind by those with expired visas.

We'll have to make the politicians and they'll be kicking screaming the whole way. You can't shame them into doing the right thing! None of them know what the truth is!

Agreed. But you know what, they have no choice but to crack down and wipe that amnesty plan off of their lobbyist based agenda. Americans are suffering and if they have learned nothing else, after shutting down their phone systems twice when amnesty and the nightmare act came up for a vote, they know Americans are sick and tired of their BS.

I think, it was the foul mouthed Anchor Babies that drove the Americans over the edge. Now, everyone has a thirst for deportation! I agree most Americans now know that a chunk of their pay checks go to pay child support for Anchor Baby and their illegal alien families. Ship them all back to their countries of origin and let their own governments take care of them!

We are so totally on the same page. As a descendant of slaves I am livid about the deliberate misinterpretation of the the 14th amendment and hoping that the loophole is addressed and closed within the term of this next administration. Enough of the illegal alien breeders and their anchor baby leeches draining this country dry.
