HURRAY!

Under the direction of DPS, rural elpaso landowners seeks security!

This created crisis by obamma is noting more than a distraction from Bengazi.

It's time TREASON charges are put on the table.

We need to ease up on all the nasty rhetoric. This is a time for calm and clear thinking. Getting people all riled up with harsh words will not accomplish anything.

The feds have ONE obligation,
Secure the border.

All the other fluff needs
to be canceled,
Secure the border and if the truth hurts
Too bad, so sad.

You probably have no wife or friends with that attitude. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar and Dale Carnegie advised people like you to lighten up and make nice.

I think the key to solving this crisis is for the government to approve money for job training. Many of these new immigrants are down on their luck so we need to teach them the skills they need to survive in this job market. If we make an investment now, we will all reap the returns later.

My niece adopted two Mexican children who live in Birthright. I hate to think how you people treat them in SS. Have you seen the movie "When I Rise".......... you really should and be ashamed of WTH you have become. Hiding behind fake names. At least have the kohones to be kind to children there. By 2050 Whites will be the minority here in America. Evolve and change with the times. After all we killed a lot of Native-Americans to ge our land in 1845. The Mexicans were here first as well as the Native-Americans. EVOLVE and learn TOLERANCE. It is the Christian thing to do. You Repugs are Christians........right ?

Some dreamers were brought over here as a kid and graduated with the highest honors from high school. Then they went on to Stanford and despite their academic success, not having papers has been a huge obstacle and yet they don't let that be an obstacle which doesn’t prohibit them from having their American dreams.

I think that the House has a responsibility to deal with, one way or another, an up or down vote on an issue the Senate dealt with in a bipartisan way over the year ago.

The Feds have ONE job
Secure the border.

There is no constitutional authority for anything else.

ut there’s a short-term question that’s not hard to answer at all: Where should the 57,000 children who are already here go? The answer is: Every state should be raising its hand and offering to take some of them. This is not a border-state problem. It is not up to Texas and Arizona to carry this load just because they’re the first places the children land. States in the Northeast and the Midwest can take some of these kids too. Yet some states are looking only for excuses to say no. Their leaders—including in my own state of Connecticut—are behaving shamefully. This NIMBY response is the worst kind of hypocrisy, especially coming from supposedly liberal blue states. Got a star on the flag? That means you have to pitch in right now.

Instead of showing some heart, my governor, Dannel Malloy, is looking heartless and feckless. He claims otherwise:“Obviously, our hearts go out to the children in this situation,” his communications director said. But that is an empty piety if I’ve ever heard one. Asked by the Obama administration to temporarily house 2,000 immigrant children at a nearly vacant training school in the town of Southbury, Malloy said no.“We don’t currently have the ability to meet this request,” the same spokesman claimed.

SOS
Every state needs to send their State Guard and militia
To the SOUTHERN BORDER
To stop the leak.
SECURE THE BORDER .

THEN mop the floor,
Deport the illegals
and prosecute those responsible for this
outrageous child exploitation.
