What is holding up immigration reform is the fact that our political system is working. The legislation as presented is bad and only serves to reward those who have been profiting from illegal and legal immigration for the last 30 years. Only special interests are being served while the American citizens are expected to pay the price. We do not need amnesty for millions or a huge increase in border security aimed at making a few government contractors wealthier than they are. What we need is stricter enforcement aimed at those who employ, exploit, encourage and aid illegal aliens. If we make it hard on those who come here illegally then the only people who will cross the border illegally will be drug smugglers and the BP will be able to concentrate resources on stopping them rather than chasing people who are just coming here for the great welfare system.

What's happening is that constituents are giving their reps longs ears on this subject....they don't want to see illegals getting gifted with anything. With the 2014 elections looming on the horizon, many are weighing the consequence that that they will be forced to face should they send Americans under the bus in favor of those here illegally. Keep giving your reps an earful!

If you all were not lazy enough then UsA would not need the demand of a whole lot of labor force but let us face reality there a a myriad of positions that you all would not be able to do because of your laziness. Quit relying on ebt, medicare and welfare and get busy. I am so glad Obama care is going to be in effect that way you all racist dummies will have to buy your own insurance.

I never relied on anything but myself and my work ethic. The same goes for my hubby. We have always paid for our own insurance. You have us confused with those who have made a living, feeding off those of us who have worked and paid taxes. It has nothing to do with lazy Americans, it has to do with greedy employers who never pass the savings on to the consumers...they just stuff their own pockets while they hire illegals who also feed off the taxpayers.

There's one word that completely describes what is preventing amnesty. That word is sanity.

We did this... The American people finally got listened too. When lawmakers and representatives were on break from the Capital, they heard there Constituents tell them F**&% no. We have no money to take care of our own let alone pay for this garbage. The illegals want to be rewarded for breaking our laws. They're as dumb as a box of rocks. Our Country will not roll over for this crap. Deport them and California can asseed to Mexico. We are through with this beligerent Culture. Run over our kids, kill our Fellow Americans on the road, commit ID theft on our precious kids, run drugs into our neighborhoods and schools. We've had it. Mexico didn't care about them either. They are born crooks. Go home. Give it up.

Oh yea. Today in Utah ICE has given I phones a new APP to contact them with Complaint's and child abductions and other issues. The App can also be used to report criminal element's and gang affiliation illegals. Something has changed. Thank God. If OBAM want's to help American citizens get work, the last thing he can do is give 20 million illegals amnesty....

You are nut's my friend. Corporations and Dems want cheap labor. In Washington the news came out today, Big Co's. like Wendy's, Mc Donalds, etc. are firing Americans to replace them with cheap illegal labor so they won't have to pay healthcare to Citizens... Washington is run by Goldman Sachs, and Big Corporations and we are expendable.Someone somewhere got back in touch with reality and Corporations and banks are going to have to step up to the pump and share their wealth which they do not want to do.It's called Obamacare.... ha ha. Corporations do not want to pay health care cost's for millions of full time Americans they want a new wave of illegals too screw.

What's needed is to enforce our current laws. There is no reform needed other than do away with birth right Citizenship. And make all who are here Illegally go to the end of the line and back to their Country of origin, Take their Anchors with them.

You sound like someone on welfare with a guilty conscience. Welfare fraud is only one small item we get stuck paying for illegal aliens. But now that you mention it, it's funny that I was behind a fat Spanish speaking lady the other day and she was buying a fancy box of chocolates compliments of the US taxpayer. I saw her afterward in the store parking lot getting into a Caddy and driving off. I don't know where she got the money for the Caddy but I'm a little bitter that she was using money from me to grow her enormous ,$$$, hiney.
