Resigned.....he should be incarcerated. And Barry has been trying to act like he didn't know......They're all crooks and thieves just like the ones that have released. Today in Utah reporters have complained they're numerous transplants here from Arizona that are driving illegally. Now we'll have 34,000 more out on our roads that have been arrested and jailed, driving and hiding in our suburbs. What a joke.

He should be given a medal! This whole thing of deporting people is nothing more than racial profiling! My friend was literally ripped away from his white American wife and baby when he couldn't produce his driver's license. The police told him he just had a "hunch" he didn't have a license and pulled him over. End result: 4 more people that despise the police and Homeland "Security". Every weekend going to visit ripped apart families at these detention centers and seeing screaming children and spouses was and is heart-breaking! My friend's only crime??? brought to the US when he was very young and being born "brown".

In Utah people that entered without inspection can get a driver's card, registration, and car insurance. At least some state government has common sense!

They're illegal aliens, not immigrants of any type.

If you don't want to have problems, carry a blippin driver's license if you're going to drive. It's the LAW!

If you don't like laws being enforced, move to Mexico.

I'm not a cold hearted creep, but after watching my business and my family business being taken over by illegals and seen what they taken out of our Country in entitlement's and many other freebies. I don't have the sympathy you have for your friend. When you have stolen your identity's and put your own kids at the mercy of another peoples Government you should realize their are consequences. The people that did this always knew they were living here under the radar. And the chance of being caught was real, and great. But if we simply abolish our Laws we would surely end up like Mexihell or worse. So it's the decision to live by the rule of law or live in chaos... I choose trying to abide by the laws.

They are NOT from outer space. We all share the same continent. The only difference from my moving 2000 miles to a new job and better life and their moving 2000 miles to a new job and better life is..........an imaginary line.

I agree with you Ronnie about the freebies and entitlements. I totally oppose all those government handouts and it does give incentive for lazy people to move here. I still think we should welcome the hard working immigrants.

Nevada MADE US. IT'S A LONG AND DIFFICULT PROBLEM. ASK ANY NEVADA BUSINESS OWNER OR CASINO OWNER, how they operate in the State? They are given housing, work visa's, and thousands of other magnet's that encourage chain migration, all with the encouragement of Nevada State and good old Harry Reid. Mexicans have bankrupted part's of Nevada. Do your research. If you own a business in Nev. You employ illegals and their anchors etc. Nevada is the big ole secret this Country never hears about except for entertainment purposes.

Gillian Christensen, said there was no connection between Mead's announcement to his staff and the decision to release the illegal immigrants."

They still think we are dumb enough to believe this chit!!!

I am waiting on a murder or a vehicular homicide that sues the feds for negligence!!!

Releasing illegal aliens was a very cheap trick! I guess the sad part about it for the Obam is that this will anger/disappoint some people who were in his corner by the way that he has gone about this!

Can you believe that ANYONE in the administration would do something like this, as high profile as this is, without WH approval?!!!! LOL

You haven't counted the, at least, 2 million DACA that are already acting as if they, "...are ceetezeens in every way!"

How do you know if they are "hardworking" until they steal your job for less pay?!!!

That's just stupid. Every nation for three thousand years has had the right to secure its own borders. When you cross a national border illegally you are an ILLEGAL ALIEN and a CRIMINAL. Period.

I guess the Native Americans and Mexicans didn't secure their borders well enough 500 and 150 years ago.

I wish I lived in Miami. I would go to the detention center EVERY weekend, bring a folding chair and a bag of popcorn, and watch the show. I ask you, do the children and spouses ever fall down to the ground and kick and scream? That would be so koool.

If you weren't such a smug, sanctimonious piece of whatever fell out of that black dog, you would realize that illegal aliens have put hundreds of thousands of construction workers out of work. That's just one industry. As a liberal, you must love blacks. Where are black teens working now that illegals are working at McDonald's, cutting lawns and shoveling sidewalks? The poor blacks are paying the price for your liberalism, but you can feel good about yourself, right, so F' em.

As the wet backs and their seditious, ignorant supporters say JA JA JA JA I believe EVERY illegal alien should be as unhappy as possible as long as he remains in the US. I happen to be six two and a former member of the military, I insult wet backs every day. They are basically cowards.
