It's interesting that your saying that we have sick starving kids here in the USA.
Didn't they just pass a health care bill to get all those sick people care?
The food stamp program is doing so well you can get a cell phone and services like that too.

American Workers Continue to Pick up Jobs Left Vacant by Immigration Raids

A new report in USA Today finds that unemployed U.S. citizens continue to
fill up jobs left vacant by immigration raids, particularly at meatpacking
and poultry plants. The reports says that plants impacted by the raids were
back up and running at full capacity within months of the raids.
Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain said the raids were beneficial
to the American workforce.

"Whenever there's an immigration raid, you find white, black and legal
immigrant labor lining up to do those jobs that Americans will supposedly
not do," Prof. Swain said in the USA Today article.

Immigration raids harm immigrants, employers
http://ncronline.org/blogs/immigration-and-ch...
the Senate's comprehensive reform package likely won't get passed. This means any overhaul appears dead until after the presidential elections in 2016.

This is bad news for immigrants and terrible news for employers. Immigrants will continue to live in fear of deportation and companies will continue to be afraid of the "silent raids" by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that have become so widespread under President Barack Obama.

Our audit took three weeks but has left wounds that will never heal. We lost 18 people out of a staff of 200. They were some of our longest-tenured employees, the best machinists and operators. The result? Productivity fell and costs zoomed. Those affected lost well-paying jobs. Some suffered home foreclosures and battled depression and anxiety. I felt so helpless to protect them and so angry at the financial impact on our business that I sought grief counseling. It did not work.

There is no need for $3.7 billion,when we can fly these parasites home for a lot less. According to The Washington Times,flying illegals home would be 99.5% cheaper than obamas plan. Flying them home for one- half of 1% of the $3.7 billion is a 99.5% savings. The $250.00 per day compares with the $667.00 one- way cost from Mcallen,TX to Guatemala city. The combined airfare for 29,358 passengers would be $19.6 million. Big difference!
Good idea.
Let the internet show them being sent right back.
With this bill, people from Central America will get the idea that we're the land of freebee.
If any of us go to a foreign country wie have to have our passports. We need our passports go get back in our country. If people from other countries come to our country they have to have passports. Why should these people be any different.
We're not the litter box for the Central American govnvermentts to dump their citizens on.

Exactly. Unfortunately,these parasites are coming here for the amnesty Obama openly supports( which is really an invitation) and the taxpayer funded freebies. We need pro American leadership who will secure the border,actually enforce existing laws(which Obama is refusing to do) and shoot the vermin on sight the minute they set foot on US soil. Until that happens,we will continue to be invaded not only by the illegals but this is an invitation for terrorists to walk across the border.

We know that the stock answer for everything from the liberals is always tax and spend, but what if something really bad were to happen like a disaster of major proportions after we have spent the nation into so much debt in good times, how could we handle it?

Consumer confidence highest since Bush recession. No thanks to Boehner's do-nothing, vacationing House of teabagging misfits.
