I have an idea... Let's deport Obama to Kenya,banning him from setting foot on our soil,give illegals a chance at proving worthy of a path to whatever the hey they're screaming and crying about,but strip them of ALL social welfare for their anchors and use E-verification.Americans have first shot at jobs,period!

It's been that time for quite a while. The Congress has to act fast or otherwise things will get worse than they are today.

The existing laws are outdated and that's why they need to be changed to meet the needs of our time. Of course the reform needs to be followed by enforcement.

In case you didn't know under Obama the number of illegals dropped as more people were deported compared to the ones who crossed the border illegally. Plus during the same period of time the border has become more secure ( there is room for better of course ) than ever before.

total bullshit.

the figures dropped because he put out a mandate to the border patrol to not arrest any more illegals.

You can have your own opinion but you cannot deny the facts.

The biggest problem in the US today is that most people either don't know their history, forget it or are trying to live in denial. America was created by immigrants; people who sought to create opportunities and in the process improve their lives. So when we here a fraction of some claiming this Country, we wonder. Lets keep focus of the issues and try not to be insanely emotional. What's this "we"- "they" madness. Everything in life changes to meet the needs, demands and challenges of the times. Read history correctly and you will understand this, until then lets all deal with the reality in our faces.

I agree with you to a certain degree.

but there is a difference between "immigration" and "invasion". do you know the difference?

one is hostile and the other is friendly.

what is happening this time around is hostile. we in the usa are dealing with foreigners who believe they have rights in the usa.

the fact is - they don't.

That's what I am talking about. The truth is the economy will benefit from this bill and nobody needs a report to realize that.
