There is only so much ICE can do on a limited budget. Just deport the criminals.

The Republicans in Congress will never do immigration reform because their contributors want cheap labor. The Ds want to save the whole world.

Look at that. The Rs and Ds can compromise.

It will be fun to see how POTUS Trump handles it.

Will you be willing to pay more tax to find and deport all those now here? I would.

IMO, due to the fact that we have all benefitted from their presence, our penance is a pathway to citizenship for those currently here. No special treatment, no benefits, though.

When the Republican party and/or their candidates return all the money they got from Bob Perry Homes, Shipley donuts and a few other businesses then i might change my opinion.

We have all benefited? Have you told the people who have had crimes committed against them by illegals who were criminals when they came here and seem to be getting pass after pass once they're here?

Or the people who might like to get some kind of job again in construction? Or hospitality?

How about the burden on tax payers, since they don't pay enough in taxes to cover the benefits they receive?

Stop looking at everything as tit for tat. Citizens in both parties have the same problem when it comes to illegal aliens.

I have a feeling that if all these illegals were coming here and voting Republican, you can be sure the dems would demand it stops.

No, most Americans haven't benefited from illegal immigration, quite the opposite. Many have lost once good paying jobs to them and they are costing us $113 billion a year. They have not earned our citizenship nor should they be allowed to remain here.


What cheats both party are has nothing to do with their obligation to enforce our immigration laws.

If your govt is forgiving & applauding anything "illegal" then the leadership is really messed up. Please fight for your country. Think about the soldiers, veterans & homeless. They deserve your tax dollars, not the refugees or law breaking illegal immigrants who will use up all your resources. If your kids are hungry, you dont feed the neighbors & invite new guests into your home. Your job as a parent & a decent human being is to put your own kids first. Maybe if you have some leftovers, share it with rest of the world. It doesnt take a genius to understand this simple logic. It doesnt make you a selfish bigot to be patriotic & defend your country.

"CHARITY STARTS AT HOME".

It was actually illegal to even knowingly have them up on the stage. The DNC and Hillary broke federal laws, once again


According to Section 8 US Code 1324:

(i) knowing that a person is an alien, brings to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States and regardless of any future official action which may be taken with respect to such alien;

(ii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law;

(iii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation;

(iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or

(v)

(I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or

(II) aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,

shall be punished as provided in subparagraph (B).

Yup. Its not only important whether the DNC violated the letter of the law (they did). The DNC also disrespected federal law by using people in blatant violation to rally the crowd.
