Leahy continues to promote the liberal agenda. These bombings are evidence that we are letting dangerous anti americans into this country and granting them a pathway to citizenship. What about the background checks for citizenship.

The same libs want to restrict firearms ownership to law abiding citizen, yet they have no problem letting criminal aliens enter our country.

This is ironic considering the fact that it's your right wing ideology that grows home grown domestic terrorist.

The bombings PROVE that we need to be MORE CAREFUL as to who we allow to be in this country.

The bombings should trigger an AWARENESS that our immigration policies have FAILED and NEED TO BE TIGHTENED to ensure the safety and security of our country.

We know that two LEGAL residents have caused grievous harm.

How much more harm can come to us from any ONE of the MILLIONS of un-documented persons within our borders?

No one should be allowed to stay in this country WITHOUT being legal residents and MORE should be done to re-examine existing legal foreign residents.

The safety and security of our country is at risk!

Only a true liberal socialist could blame the conservatives for this one. It is years of poor liberal immigration policy that caused this and nobody can spin this fact.

How do you propose we screen 8 y/o of potential terrorist activity a decade down the line?

Yes, I finally agree with one of you posts. We've got way more than enough frightwingnut teabag troglodytes in this country. We don't need any more. Secure the borders.

Duh, no kidding but maybe someone should have tracked his whereabouts and actions. Apparently, he left and was trained, and then came back. It was reported that we were even warned about him in 2010 by a foreign government. What did the liberals do? That's right.....nothing other than giving him a pathway to citizenship.

When you have immigrants blowing up a city they tied immigration to the bombings. We let the scum of the earth come to America, and then we are surprised when they turn out to be the scum of the earth. We could use some clensing of the illegal alien gene pool.

Exactly, what happened to the documentation and safety checks that were done on Ellis Island decades ago? Criminal background/denied. Disease riddled/denied. The liberals have NOBODY TO BLAME BUT THEMSELVES! Their stupid open arms policy has brought about the retribution on this country we will never overcome.

So you believe that this family of misfits is the only family of horrible people we have opened the borders to? We don't check anything.
