Do not allow welfare for them that we tax payers have to pay for and they want to kill Americans. Keep a data base for the ones that are here temporary, on a visa, and follow up on their actions and insure they go home when required. I am sure these laws are currently on the books but they have NOT been followed.

Sorry, but it takes a lot of taxpayer dollars to
secure our borders and we don't have the dollars for it.
It's all part of the "smaller government" drive that the
conservatives have been after since year one.
Smaller government. Less money. Less secure borders.

Once we have drowned government in a "bathtub"
as Grover Norquist advocates, there will be no
border security at all.

The question is: do we want effective government
for America or not?

If you believe like Ronald Reagan did that government
"is the problem and not the solution," you most likely
don't expect government to secure the border.
So why complain?

Yet we have the billions of dollars to spend granting amnesty to 20 million plus illegal aliens and billions more to support them once they are granted amnesty all this while the recession has left us with the smallest percentage of Americans in the work force since 1976.
We can't afford not to secure the border and enforce immigration laws.

Funny little man. If we have the money to have drones seek american citizens, we have the money for drones to secure our border.

He uses a close pin and it helps him get camera time. You never see Schumer without a gaggle of cameras.

Your post is a perfect example of the false alternative fallacy. Smaller government doesn't mean no government.

The federal government should focus on the specific responsibilities outlined in the Constitution. National defense is one of the responsibilities. That includes border security.

Just deserts include the Gobi, Sahara, and Hot Springs.

Just desserts however, are sweet treats used as main courses.

That sad excuse for a quip must have really tested your brain cell.

And that's "too", not "to", Igor.
