Hmmmm, that sounds more like it passed.
Btw, Hillary supports immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship. I'm sure her administration will as well.
Illegal Alien lovers in the Senate, it passes every time. Thank gosh there's men with a brain in the House that know giving amnesty to illegals is a waste of time and money.

I don't know what else you plan on doing with those 11 million illegals.

Deporting them all isn't realistic, and leaving there here as illegal only perpetuates the current problems.

And since many of our Hispanic citizens have relatives & friends & neighbors & coworkers who are illegal, they won't look kindly on the party which supports deporting them.

Refusing to even consider immigration reform is going to cost them in the coming elections.

I was referring specifically for my husband & I, but in general reference to the American people as well.

They could pass the immigration bill in 10 minutes if they so choose.

But they have to CHOOSE to do it.
Why??

DHS confirms cheaper to deport every illegal alien than allowing them to stay


Full story: www.examiner.com

On December 3, Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs, Nelson Peacock, responding to request from several U.S. Senators, including Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), wrote:“Our conservative estimate suggests that ICE would require a budget of more than $135 billion to apprehend, detain and remove the nation’s entire illegal immigrant population.”

In July 2010, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) released the results of a study which examined the costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local levels. The study found that U.S. state and local governments shell out $84.2 billion annually in various services (law enforcement, schools, social services, etc.), with California taxpayers alone, spending $21 billion on illegal aliens every year.

The same study found that $29 billion is spent every year in federal funds on illegal aliens.
So, while it would cost a one-time fee of about $135 billion to deport every single illegal alien in the country, it is actually a bargain considering the fact that it already costs us $113 billion annually to keep them here.
In other words, the mass deportation would pay for itself in a little over a year.

Incidentally, in 2007, the DHS estimated the cost of deporting all illegal aliens to be approximately $94 billion.

That STILL doesn't solve the problem.

What are you going to do with the current 11+ million illegals?

Deporting them simply isn't a realistic option. We don't have a large enough law enforcement force to go door-to-door & and stop every person in the country to check their papers; not to mention the constitutional issues.

Leaving them here in an illegal status obviously solves nothing either.

So WHAT do you plan on doing with them?

Correct, the majority of Americans support some path to citizenship so there won't be as many illegals here.

And you're just going to throw out the US Constitution in the process?

Deporting all 11+ million illegals would require a police force of TENS OF MILLIONS doing illegal door-to-door searches & stopping every person on the street to prove their citizenship.

That would turn us into a police state.

I don't know about you, but my constitutional rights are worth more than $135 billion, and I didn't spend 20+ years in the military only to see those rights thrown out because politicians in BOTH parties refused to secure our borders.

"What he said was, there's 13 days left, it's very hard to do anything in 13 days," Salas said of McCarthy.

Doubt if they had more days they would do anything. It is easier for them to continue to do nothing than tackle an important and controversial issue like immigration.

They should probably stick to shutting down the government and naming post offices.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

But no will ....

Not to mention it is Speaker Boner who decided there are only 13 days left in the year.

According to my calendar, there are 29 normal work days left in the year.

Yeah, that "self-deportation" thing worked so good for the GOPasaurs last time they tried it....
