Let's see.

The Obama administration sues Arizona for interfering with Federal Enforcement of immigration law while ICE takes no action against foreign nationals confessing their immigration crime in front of the White House.

It is like someone robbing a bank ... and then protesting that there wasn't enough money ... and indignant they were arrested.

We need much better representation than this. All incumbants must be voted from office.

It is a travesty illegals get away with this.

It's time Americans take back their country from the corrupt anti-America politicians who are allowing illegal immigrants and the corrupt Mexican government to dictate our laws.The Obama administration claims they lack resources to aprehend illegals who committed crimes.By being in the U.S., illegals have already committed a crime. Will they be allowed to stay here until they have robbed,killed, or raped an American citizen? If the federal government does not have the funds to enforce our laws, how are they going to construct the fence, have workplace enforcement, which they promise they will and can do, if only Republicans will support amnesty?
As long as Obama, and radical Democrats are in power, we will never see enforcemnet of our immigrantion laws. Remember Obama's aunt was given legal residency,after she was ordered deported several times.

Last year, DC Police Chief Cathy Lenier signed a Secure Communities agreement - 287g and was REAMED by the DC City Council and some of her own officers. She wants to do her job and gets stymied, then when something happens, she gets the fall out for not doing enough.

From the looks of it, it would have been Capitol Police who took custody and not DC Police. This is appalling. We need to make it known to all our legislators that this act will not be tolerated and all those who support or will not speak out against what happened will have their jobs seriously on the line. My Legislidiots and Congressass will be hearing about this.

Connolly the toad hasn't changed at all since he funded the Herndon Day Labor Site. I sure hope you force him to retire at the earliest opportunity.
