excluding the ones already here and the ones who are still on the line, just the 54,000 male and female with 4 offspring could become 156000 people the first time around. they could overwhelm the original citizens if it goes on unabated. of course it is not going to be my personal concern because I don't have grandkid to see such over population. over populations creates poverty and factions according to great philosopher Aristotle.

Governor Perry's solution is to give them free college tuition, at the expense of those Texas 'patriots'.

the bad news is there will be more mouths to feed and quench thirst and the good news is there could be more able bodied young men to join the military to fight against China if it comes to that.

All it takes is the will to solve this problem. Obama just cares about trying to make himself look like a compassionate hero. He created this problem and there's no chance he'll make an honest attempt to fix it. Now, for the first time, he wants more border patrol agents. He knows more agents will have no affect on this invasion. He's a phony weasel.

This is part of ideas promoted by propaganda central. No way can a reasonable and informed individual blame Obama for the results of a piece of legislation signed into law by George Bush. The Senate Immigration Bill which John Bonher refuses to put forth for a vote in the house includes additional funding to hire more border agents.

Adult immigrants caught crossing the Mexican border illegally are generally removed from the U.S. within hours or days of their arrest. But a federal law dating to President George W. Bush's administration requires that unaccompanied child immigrants must be turned over to HHS within three days. From there, many are reunited with parents or other relatives already in the United States or other sponsors before the lengthy court process beings.

Are you that far detached as a citizen to not know the policies and laws of the nation you live? In 2002 G Bush a former Texas Governor signed to enact a law prohibiting the immediate return of children caught crossing the border.

What the hell are more border agents going to do? That's the phoniest, non fix, of all. As far as laws passed by GWB. Who the hell cares what that buffoon did? He was an idiot just like Obama. As far as me getting my opinions from propaganda central, I watch movies, westerns and old shows. Now there's some real radical sh111t. Your problem is that you're a one way partisan who doesn't like independent thinkers.

Is your brain that detached that you don't know Bush is no longer in office? Since when has Obama followed laws? We wouldn't have this problem if he did. He told all the illegals to come over by a certain date, they wouldnt get turned away. Now were stuck with the filthy diseased illegals. Obama will give them free housing, food, education and medical care. Their future Democrats.

So you think these kids should have stayed in whatever Country their from, with their parents? Anything could happen to them. What idiots these people have to be to send 3 yr olds by themselves.
