It would be nice to have politicians who have the cajones' to stand up and be counted on this issue. Not just whichever way the wind is blowing. That's whats wrong now. Political expediency and telling folks what you want them to hear instead of telling them the truth. What the hell happened to our Country? I remember a time when honest politician was not an oxymoron.

"I remember a time when honest politician was not an oxymoron."

How many years ago was that?

You are a better man than me if you can remember back that far.

Public Opinion Polls on Immigration:
"The general public overwhelmingly favors immigration reform." Poll after poll shows that Americans want well-enforced, sensible, and sustainable immigration laws."
61% of likely U.S. voters support a law similar to Arizona SB1070 for their own state (Rasmussen, July 2010).
56% of likely U.S. voters disagree with the Justice Department's lawsuit challenging Arizona SB1070. 28% agree with the lawsuit,(Rasmussen, July 2010).

Reform means amnesty. This Bull Sh!t has been going on for to long. Deportation and border protection is the only way to deal with the illegal alien problem, and its the only thing they will never do. Why? Because it dosnt benifit there corupt greed and power and political gain. I do think politicians are finally comming around to actually see that something has to be done soon or it will get more out of control and they will have to arm the National gaurds, who still arnt at the border yet.

I actually participated in one of those Rasmussen polls regarding illegal immigrants. I am quite proud to say I was a member of the majority, whether 61% or upper 90's. If Americans can agree on something to the tune of 61% then the dang politicians better pay attention.

Comrade baracky is determined to make voters out of the illegal ALIENS. The anointed one's memo about back door amnesty isn't being widely reported on by mainstream media. Just like the rest of his dark room agenda, it's detrimental to America.

Sorry, nothing will be done about immigration or anchor babies. Corporate America will never allow cheap labor to leave this country. How come all you teabaggers and GOP numb skulls can't get that?
