why would a country not protect its own borders first and foremost in a fight against "terrorism"? if this is important enough to send soldiers overseas to get killed, wouldn't it be important enough to secure our country's borders? we don't even have foreign airlines entering our air space properly monitored by our own homeland security.

instead, we have dumba** politicians trying to come up with even more ways to throw american taxpayer money at other countries. (i remember when schwarzenegger was trying to push the cap and trade tax on americans before).
One of the lame arguments made is that we would be hurting Mexico's feelings by completing the wall all the way across and militarizing our southern border. Of course the same lame argument isn't being used on our Canadian border and we do need to secure both of our borders.

Maybe Mississippi and Louisiana are both having serious budget problems right now, but how does that disprove the notion that the more blue a democratically controlled sactuary state is the more budget problems the state has. A sanctuary blue state would be flooded with welfare sucking illegal Mexicans now wouldn't it?

everyone saying "just send them back" is WRONG. what kind of justice is that for the victims of murder and rape and other crime perpetrated at the hands of illegals?

you all mean to tell me that if an illegal were convicted of raping someone you know you would rather them roam free in their home country, rather than spend time in jail (US, mexican or otherwise).

talk about reactionary!

think it through before posting such insanity.

This idea has a "snowballs chance......." regardless of what one believes.The guvornator is merely blowing smoke in order to put a small shine on his tarnished,lame duck image. He had his chance to address the issue and he failed( with a little help from the rest of the scum in Sac.

jmo.

these people weren't our problem to begin with and i think that is the point that you seem to be overlooking. just because one administration chose to drop the ball does not mean that all administrations have to drop the ball.

americans don't want to house illegal immigrant criminals, they don't want to pay for their meals, their health care, or their retirement, and they don't want them in this country. yes, i want them to be their own country's problem, not ours!

we have made this perfectly clear to the politicians, yet the politicians choose to ignore the will of the people and those politicians will soon understand the concept of OUT OF WORK due to bad decision making policies. i don't think schwarzenegger could be elected dog catcher, but i don't think he is running again either.

Better yet why not send them to prisons in China,the chinese prisons wouldn't baby these criminals they would put them to work in labor camps,Mexicans could not cry rascism as it would hold all foreign Illegals,no where really to escape to,it would be a lot cheaper than building Mexican prisons and when they are released they would not be back in a day.Let them try and protest over there and see how far any lawsuits would go.Since thet aren't here legally they have no rights.Whatever profits that they could make for the Chinese would easily pay for their incarceration and help with the trade imbalance a win-win situation.

your idea of justice is severely skewed.

sending them to their country (where they can possibly attempt to get back into the US) is not the thing to do.

thats not a good crime fighting tool. that does nothing for the victims either.

this is our problem. they committed crime in the US. what you are saying is that you would essentially provide immunity for illegal criminals. your illegal? you killed someone? ok, well just deport you. get a grip!
