NO AMNESTY . Enforce current immigration laws . NO REFORM NEEDED . Every American should start now letting the people in corruption city know that Americans , Veterans need work . Start sending letters,emails , calls that WE the People do not want reform of any kind. Things are real bad when an illegal immigrant has more rights than an American .

Dem Demographic Problem

The Dems also have a demographic problem in the aging of the millennials. As they exit college, have difficulty getting jobs, start to understand how government vilifies people earning money and companies doing legitimate work, the class warfare BS that's pumped them up will start looking pretty stupid.

This generation may quickly turn on the socialist agenda is a way that hasn't been anticipated.

When you consider the fact that illegal immigration is just plain wrong in every part of the world, it really isn't the answer for any political party.
Hispanics will vote for which party they prefer but making legalization of these criminals as a condition for their political votes is immoral and unpatriotic.

A reform is needed either to give us a status or deport us all.

There will be immigration reform and we are NOT going to deport 11 million people or their children. We are also not going to let them live in the shadows or be second class. We will find a way to bring them out of the shadows, into society, and onto the tax rolls like everyone else. This is America, not Nazi Germany. The Republican party is not the majority of this country. They may have fixed the congressional districts by gerrymandering but they do not reflect the majority of this country. And if we want to end illegal immigration, its high time we start looking at how we deal with the rest of the world and seeing how our behavior and policies drive people to flee their countries and come here.

ONLY solution is that to take away all the perks which will never happen because both parties wants illegal votes.
america is not america since 1986.
In the very near future america will have to face the enemies that lives right next door. And majority of the law people is become sideline with anchor babies. I would not be surprise that the war on boundary will become true and many will dies for the caused that should have not be. Mexico will fight to the teeth to get CA and other state that proclaimed were taken by US. War is coming near either psychologically or by force. It is shimmer in the air and it would catch fire soon.
Everybody knows enforce the law is the key. Unfortunately, politicians throw the key in the trash the moment votes become an adversary of personal belonging.
Is it sad? YES IT IS VERY SAD and SHAMEFUL

"....This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the border henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."....Ted Kennedy (1986)

As long as Repugs dislike everyone except aging white males (who are in the dying sooner than later zone) they'll have problems even holding the southern states....

With 53% of the voters being women who are beginning to vote in their own interests - which no longer include the Repug platform of anti-contraception, anti-family planning, anti-healthcare for all and unequal pay for women ....

With Millennials showing up progressive in large numbers - which generally translates into long term voting patterns.

With African Americans voting 90% against Repugs for good reason

With non-Christian groups feeling under attack....

With the Repugs in the States like Arizona and Georgia putting up truly nasty anti-immigration laws and flaunting their prejudiced superstars like Sheriff Arpaio....

Does this party stand a chance? Maybe they can Gerrymander for awhile....but they really don't represent the majority of Americans. We actually need a party that likes Americans to balance the Dems with ideas that can help the country and that's not the Republican Party.
