You will never get the border closed to illegal aliens while there is a Democrat President, and a Democrat Senate. We can fix that in the next 2 elections. Vote Republican in November, and Republican again in November 2016. There is a group of young voters coming up that are more Conservative then the last generation. They have seen their parents taxed to death for everything from failed Green company investments, to taking care of invading diseased illegal aliens. They are more interested in tax cuts, and smaller government then this last generation.

Bush 2008 Loophole.
Wipe your chins, Au Dumbo.
The case before Florida Judge Terry Lewis claims that Barack Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements for President of the United States. The lawsuit, believe it or not, was filed by a registered Democrat. Just last week I wrote about Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Cold Case Posse Investigator Mike Zullo filing affidavits in the case.

At that time, Obamaís attorneys had asked Judge Lewis to dismiss the case because Barack Obama met the legal definition of a natural born citizen. Lewis didnít buy their argument and demanded they provide documented evidence to back up their claim. He pointed to the fact that the claimantís attorney had provided a Supreme court decision that had defined natural born citizen to mean that both parents were US citizens.

In the latest round before Judge Lewis, Obamaís attorneys evidently could not produce the requested documentation to support their claim that Obama is a natural born citizen. Out of what seemed to be an act of desperation on their part, they tried to divert addressing the central claim in the case by telling Lewis that Obama is not the Democratic nominee and therefore the case is irrelevant.

You don't speak for "the people." You're just an ignoramus.
I was just showing you what the people are saying and it is not what you are saying. Go back and read the last web site Tony posted. Your an idiot since you have not idea what this is doing to America - you really don't care - bankrupt America and let us working tax payers pay for all of this crap. I believe WE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF OUR KIDS FIRST. How much have you donated to the cause - how much has Obama donated from his own money - all these kids should be put on the front lawn of the WH. I am sure Obama would have Harry release some of the hundreds of bills that the House has passed to Harry since he will not bring them to the floor of the Senate.

"Slim Majority of Americans Would Vote for DREAM Act Law
Fifty-four percent favor granting legal status to illegal immigrants brought to U.S. as children"
http://www.gallup.com/poll/145136/slim-majori...
"Washington (CNN)- A majority of Americans support a measure that would give legal status to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children if they join the military or go to college, according to a new national survey."
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/12/...
Bi-partisan immigration bill passed with 15 republicans also voting in favor of the Dream Act / negotiated by the "Gang of Eight" - 4 republicans and 4 democrats;
"Washington (CNN)-- The U.S. Senate gave final approval Thursday to a roughly 1,200-page bill that promises to overhaul immigration laws for the first time since 1986, creating a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented residents while ratcheting up security along the Mexican border.
Senators passed the sweeping legislation -- initially drafted by the four Democrats and four Republicans in the chamber's so-called "Gang of Eight" -- by a 68-32 vote."
http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/27/politics/immigr...
Facts are not again on your side - and your opinion means nothing.
You are comparing apples and oranges. "Comprehensive immigration reform" is not the same as the "Dream Act" and the Dream Act as currently proposed does not limit awarding legal status to those illegal aliens brought here by their parents as children who join the military and/or are actually actively attending college. That is just the line used in the surveys to get people to support the "Dream Act".

No he isn't, there are two districts and by the way, he was the same judge that presided over the 2000 election.

Boehner will not let the bill go to the floor for a vote / even though the House votes are there to pass this bill.
The Tea Party blocks his path.
Rubio is again lying.
Ya we know how much your word is worth on border security. If you want a bill passed then, border security has to be first or rather completed. Dems always go back on their word about border security. Looks like the 2nd amendment will have to be used. Hahaha

The is no problem with border security, it is the tea bagger excuse for not doing anything (which is something they have done very well for close to four years).

It's like saying they don't want to start bailing out the boat until all the water is out of the bilge.

The current wave of children are running into the arms of the border patrol.

that will never happen, there's way too many of you un-welcomed drivers running us off the road acting like you own everything here without some of you ever having paid one dime to our economy instead always expecting a handout of some kind. Some of our own citizens are going hungry because the dictator in the WH is giving you illegals OUR RETIREMENT TAX MONEY for the sole purpose of these illegals' illegal votes. The future looks bleak for our senior citizens who will be retiring in a few years and those that are on social security don't get what they deserve because the dictator is squandering on illegals. You're ol mexihole wouldn't do that to illegals in your country, RIGHT ? So how in hell's name can you expect US CITIZENS TO EMBRACE YOU ?
