Water is given, it is called being a human being skippy. You should try it some time.

There are no handouts given, that is a faux news kool aid lie.

FACT = more illegals deported under Obama then were deported under bush.

Your so-called facts are inaccurate. Obama himself admitted that the deportation stats were skewered because those turned back at the border were called deporations. I have a link if you want it.

Also, Obama is only deporting felon illegals. He has instructed Homeland Security not to deport any other illegals. He also gave 1.8 million illegals most of whom are the so-called Dreamers a stay of deportation for two years with work permits. He is promising amnesty before his term is up. Obama's record on illegal immigration is dismal.

I think the House should be willing to work with oblameo on immigration just as hard as oblameo worked with the House on the budget and debt brouhaha.

let's see
.
obama refuses to meet
obama tells his puppets at the senate
vote on none of the 26 house bills
no senate/house committees to convene
obama states he will veto all bills that arent obama clean
obama reid calls house terrorist, anarchists, teabaggers etc
.
ok House of Reps, give the dear leader the same level of cooperation in his drive to amnesty 30million illegal invading welfare sucking leeches.

People should just face this fact: When compared to the rest of the world, the U.S, is still underpopulated. There remains a grave suspicion about
the republicans: Namely, that theyīre thinking of
a two-tiered society: Citizens versus non-citizens.
These Republicans must be told : That the U.S. is notthe Roman empire. A living double-standard is
unworthy of a democracy such as the U.S. claims to be. Thus speaking, an immigration-reform must
also offer those who obtain a status healthcare
benefits-let alone a path towards citzenship.
My prediction is: if this isnīt done, people will
eventuall challenge the authority of the government
and do whatever they please because the if the
reformed immigration-laws are too skimpy, people will regard as nothing but a waste of time and
a nuisance.As a consequence, gettoes would comeinto being with significant criminality,
suffering, as well as social instability.
I believe the bit-by bit- approach exposes the president to further blackmailing by the Republicans: Theyīd try to coerce the president to eventually not grant any path to citizenship.
The president is confident, that he can pull it through bit by bit, and that is a good sign, but
there isnīt really much of a difference how this gets transacted, and thatīs precisely why the
piecemeal approach is suspicious without the
shadow of a doubt.Time is money: Why not get this done once and for all.The transaction will never
be perfect, no matter whzich approach is being used. Just try to be a little bit more square
and straightforward, as otherwise the entireeffort will get stalled, as other problems arise and
interfere.I wouldnīt bet on distracting and burdening the government in office: it isnīt
fair to the government, and it isnīt fair to the
immigrants either-and of course itīll end up wasting more time: time that is needed for
other problems to be resolved.

Really skippy...when did he say that? Got I link to it?

Here are the FACTS:
If you compare the two presidents’ monthly averages, it works out to 32,886 for Obama and 20,964 for Bush, putting Obama clearly in the lead. Bill Clinton is far behind with 869,676 total and 9,059 per month. All previous occupants of the White House going back to 1892 fell well short of the level of the three most recent presidents.

FACT the number of border security agents has more than doubled over the last decade.

Why compare the U.S. land mass and population to other countries? I have no desire to be stacked in like sardines like China and India. It is about ariable land space, jobs and resources not just land per se. Read about the carrying capacity of the U.S. to educate yourself.

There is no plan to reform our immigration laws. It is amnesty for illegal alien law breakers, period. At the very least a pathway to citizenship is ridiculous for those who already showed they had no respect for our laws or borders. This time around there are at least quadruple the number that there was in 1986 with 23 million Americans out of work today and already too much demand on our social and natural resources as it is.

No, the right solution for the American people is to implement e-verify in every workplace so they will not have access to our jobs, deny them any benefits and end birthright citizenship in its present form. Without any means to support themselves most of these illegals would self-deport. It would also be a deterrant for them to keep coming here. Amnesty just encourages more illegal aliens to come here waiting for the next amnesty. When does it end?

My name isn't skippy so you can knock that off right now. What does it matter if he BP agents have been doubled when Obama has handcuffed them in doing their jobs?

You don't have as many facts as you think you do. I note that your wouldn't address the fact that Obama has instructed Homeland Security not to deport any illegals unless they are felons. I note your didn't address the 1.8 million illegals that he gave a stay of deportation with work permits. Why is that?

Here are some real facts for you:

USCIS published guidance on the eligibility and process requirements. Requests for consideration will be accepted beginning on, but not before, August 15, 2012 (early requests will be rejected). Current estimates of the number of eligible participants have increased to almost 1.8 million, or approximately one out of every 6 or 7 of the estimated 11 to 12 million currently undocumented in the United States.-

Skippy, it matters simply because you can't BS your way out of your little lie. You claim this administration is "handcuffing" the border patrol agents yet deportations are up versus bush. How can that be?

And skippy, when you can PROVE:

I will be happy to address it. YOu do comprehend what PROVES means right? That means a bill, EO, or directive. Not a blog, opinion, or something..."you heard"

Lets see what you can come up with skippy
