Mexico would argue (and I would agree with them) that we should stop free food stamps and healthcare, aside from ER. Mexico does provide ER services to foreigners. It would be hard to argue with Mexico on that.

Even Obama agrees that the best way to help other countries is by allowing immigrants to send money to their families. That is the reason he allowed Haitian illegal immigrants to become temporarily legal.
Haiti's case is there is no functioning country to deport illegals from there back home.

You're right so why is the case being made in here that Obama doesn't object to illegal aliens staying and sending money back home when Mexicans and other illegals do not have a disaster going on in their country. Lame to say the least. Haitians are only being allowed to stay temporarily to work and send money back home because of that disaster in their country.

McCain and Bush were just as open-borders as Ted Kennedy. Lindsay Graham is as eager to jump on this amnesty bandwagon as is Pelosi.

Other than McCain and Graham can you name many other Republican politicians who are for amnesty? On the other hand, other the than blue dog democrats, it would be a lot shorter list to name those left wing democratic politicians who aren't for amnesty than those that are. So I guess I'd better start saying that, currently, the majority of Republican politicians are fighting amnesty while, currently, the majority of democratic politicians are fighting Republicans fighting amnesty.

Republicans fight amnesty? So Ronald Reagan, patron saint of the Republicans, was fighting amnesty when he signed the 1986 amnesty into law? Talk about burning the village to save it.

WOW! a hole lot of talking and no action ! Why Do any billing ? If they are not here legally how much would the bus ride back to the border cost. See it really is that easy. And I know for a fact that San Bernardino county Ca. has received through drug actions 4 nice tour buses that could used for that purpose. So now the question should be when will they start. You know like " ILLEGALLY HERE TODAY*** LEGALLY IN MEXICO IN TWO HOURS" End of story.

Its done already.
Non-insured pay a different rate than insured, insured pay a different rate than those on gov medicare/medicaid. Even obama agrees? What about what is best for this country?
At present about 53% of the nation disagrees with Obama in general and about 67% disagrees with him on amnesty.
