The House and the Senate need to Fish or Cut Bait!

Our population is out of control and needs to be reined in,we cannot continue to allow in over 900,000 legal immigrants a year,grant amnesty to 11.6 million illegal aliens and baby sit 57,000 illegal alien teenagers all.at the expense of the American Tax Payers.

Our current population is 317 million and counting,our Farm land is being covered with Concrete and we're running out of Water. At some time in the future the three will collide, do we really want to become another China because that's the direction we're headed.

I urge you to contact your U.S. Senators and Congressman with this message "Get it right or get out" and a reminder that when you vote in November 2014, a new Broom sweeps clean.

is that the only reason why you think we should allow them in?

hell, you think like the liberals. let them ALL in because they will be good democrats????

there are 6+ BILLION people outside the usa who may be good republicans if they were allowed into the usa. does that mean we should allow them all in?

using your logic, it seems to be.

frankly, I just don't want to have to deal with a population the size of china or india. is stating that opinion so wrong without having somebody insult you?

Actually, instead just trade off our liberals for the potential Republicans. Keep the numbers the same and clean house and get rid of the dirt.

Lol you are a delight .

Me Mums used to vacation there and she stopped going because of the reckless driving Miami Cubans and a worthless Cuban run police force which ignores it all .

So much CC fraud that people are afraid to use their cards .

Once the Miami Cuban politicians took over that little vacation paradise the corruption based on Cuban nepotism just shot right up like a third world .

Why lad it seems the dirt is in Miami. No wonder it is so poorly run with zero political and zero police standards.

Ingrates and separatist .

The Cuban community that doesn’t care about corruption when it casts its vote was critically portrayed by most leading city columnists and others, Cuban and otherwise. Robert Steinback, a Black Miami Herald columnist, said the Cuban community is gullible. Liz Balmaseda calls it “a knee-jerk majority” that would elect a hamster wearing a Cuba Libre T-shirt, and,“They only cared that he was Cuban.”

(CBS) It was 5 a.m. and CBS News national correspondent Byron Pitts is with
a woman who is nine months pregnant. She's rushed to a south Texas hospital
to undergo a C-section - a $4,700 medical procedure that won't cost her a
dime. She qualifies for emergency Medicaid.

She gave birth to a healthy, 8 1/2 pound baby boy - born in America. His
Mexican mother gave him an American name: Eliot.

Eliot is one of an estimated 300,000 children of illegal immigrants born in
the United States every year, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. They're
given instant citizenship because they are born on U.S. soil, which makes it
easier for their parents to become U.S. citizens.

That's because those babies can eventually sponsor their parents - when they
turn 21 years old.

Everybody who thinks our immigration laws are perfect as they are and should never be changed should be applauding this.
