She has been offered great jobs in Texas, great salary. She said she would never move to Texas for any amount of money.

I'm waiting for KFI 640 radio talk show hosts John and Ken, who are nonpartisan activists, to have screaming fits. These guys got a State Senator and a Governor recalled so they can get Gov. Empty Suit recalled, too!

Click 'On Air', then 'John and Ken'

If they are taking calls, go for it!

^ This. These politicians are using these people to spit in the faces of those who worked hard to come here the legal way. And, it's just a matter of time before there is a civil war that breaks out, and when that happens, all of that blood will be on these politicians hands!

In central america Honduras and El Salvador are full of violence. There is either the rich or the poor no inbetween. The poor neighborhoods are full of gang violence with murders on the rise consistently. Most children do not finish school due to getting involved in gangs or parents keeping them home in fear of the gangs recruiting or murdering their children. The poor are the ones fleeing. They send over their children to awaiting relatives in the states or on their own. Sometimes the whole family unit leaves. I don't know what the answer is for immigration but I don't think it should be a political tool but both parties really need to come together on this. Do we need US intervention in Honduras? Do we need to send our military over there to get the violence in control, do we need to manage more resources we send their perhaps making sure the money is being used for the charities that are trying to help these families so they can stay in their own countries? It is so corrupt in those countries that the money the US sends to these countries is not being used properly. Then illegal immigrants are coming over the border and not assimilating properly. They aren't learning English because we cater to their language. If you ever have a chance to go to Coachella Valley in the Palm Desert area of CA in towns like Mecca are just like going into an impoverished part of Mexico. These immigrants need to be assimilated properly-we cannot absorb the numbers coming in either. This is going to create a rich and poor class in the US with no more middle class if taxes become to high to afford all the immigrants coming in masses. I don't know the answers but what is going on now is a crisis no matter what the news or some others say. We cannot even take care of our own legal seniors and homeless now let alone add more problems. CA also wants to give the middle class based on a certain income $100 a month towards insurance. How will that state afford all these services without heavy taxation. There was talk of taxing water but I don't think that passed. What a huge mess this is.

Why does it have to be the US? Why can't Mexico or Canada be the ones to help? Where is the UN in all of this? It should be a global effort to help all countries, and not only the US, and now is the time to demand the UN to do something, or we withdraw all of our support and kick them out of our country for being a complete waste of time.

Uh huh, and were these sick and hungry illegal aliens? God said to obey the laws of the land and not take from others what doesn't belong to you. Trump supporters do want the laws of the land obeyed and want to stop illegal aliens from stealing from us. But they are the bad guys?

Oldglory, Jesue was "providing" for the poor by feeding the hungry, healing the sick, etc. You are talking about "taking" or "stealing." Do you understand the difference?

Taking Money from Citizens and giving it to people who break the law.

And they're not even US Citizens.
