What hatefest?

Do you agree that obama's DOJ might challenge the law?

Do you think he is on the right side of the issue?

Do you think he is just pandering to Hispanics?

[quote=whatyousay;14348341]Everyone needs to watch these videos. I saw them a while back and it's FRIGHTENING to know that probable Islamic jihadists are entering our country with such ease.

If the terrorist's ever pulled off an attack and it was found that..
They came in through Mexico,then the government might think..
About securing the border.

Haven't you heard? The Troops are not there to combat illegals entering the country, but to shore up security against the drug war going on down there.

His announcement was nothing more than a political ploy.

No it wasn't, its a good used of the troops, they not border guards. BTW, your adding of the word "MASSIVE" to CNN's headling didn't go unnoticed.
Notice too, that the CNN story was speaking about "more federal law enforcement officials are need along the border with Mexico."

You spin so hard, you make me dizzy.

Yes they are against securing the borders.

obama did it because of the controversy not any other reason he has 2 years to do something but he wanted the Hispanic vote so he took a side seat to it all. but, he is dropping so far in the polls he needs to try to reclaim some of the numbers and he has 2 years before the Hispanic vote will matter.

Keep the illegals out of this country. Penalize those who give these people jobs....
Simple as that.

We don't even know what they are going to do there yet, do we? If this is a just dog and pony show, let's see the media report it.

The Administration will do nothing as they have so far. All they seems to be able to do is support a foreign president from a corrupt country coming here and telling us what to do, insulting us and then applauding him. Not to mention bashing one of our own states trying to do what the feds wont. I am now 100% convinced Obama and his cronies are not for what the majority of Americans want. They only want more potential votes from the Hispanics and illegals ( by giving them amnesty). The administration is completely disgusting.
