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?
Maybe some money could be channeled to border security from the Obama phone project, White House parties and Obama vacations. OH! and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Yep, as predicted the Teabagging GOPasaurs will kill the immigration bill, thereby ensuring the Dems win in 2014 & 2016 and for decades after.

Good job Teabaggers!

Pursuing their own agenda would be a good thing as long as they don't follow Boehner.

How much did it take to shut down Boston areas violating citizens rights? I love it. and when it is total, I hope I am offered a position to hunt scum like you down who helped to cause it. For I won't like the tyranny. But I want to get the ones who caused it and you will be scurrying around like rats.

Immigration reform will:
Help our economy; millions of people will be able to buy houses, cars, etc as well as goods and services.
The Us will be more secure; millions of undocumented people will now be accounted for, whereas US government will have access to their information (who they really are, where they are from, etc)
There are two main obstacles that may interfere with the success of the immigration reform :
politicians than like the status quo and some anti-immigrant tv host and commentators like Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin
Another point is when the undocumented folks become a resident permanent, they won't have any rights to any. government aid or welfare for five years

Well I don't know, the NAACP is fighting the Illegal Immigration Bill. They know they will go to the bottom of the pecking order after the liberal finish selling them out and giving the Hispanics the plantation.
