why is there a battle? we have had 7 shamnesties already,the fact illegal immigration is even being discussed proved they all failed and none want to solve the problem once and for all showing just how dirty those in office are.

make it a felony to come here illegally as well as be here ,hire or help an illegal alien stay in the country. end it all and never bring it up again,make it a crime to bring illegal alien rewards up in congress again.

Maybe we could swap the immigrants for Congress?

They have a far better work ethic.

What most Jews recommend and do in America they do not do in Apartheid Israel. They have walls in Israel and IDF who enjoy blowing the brains out of a Palestinian from time to time across the border. So what's good for Israel is bad for America.
Everybody got immigrants: Argentina, Chile, South Africa, France, UK, Germany, Spain, Jordan, Australia, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Brazil, Canada, Italy, etc. So your point is to homogenize the response worldwide to unexpected immigration with the same tactics or methods? Or should that be a case-by-case? Are immigrant equals? Or they are push by different factors?

Thank God Republicans don't need votes from the scum of the earth. They belong to the Democrat party. Can you envision President Truman endorsing MS13? He must be twirling in his grave..

Liar. Harry Truman was the last decent Democrat they elected. He loved the Country, his family, no scandal in his Administration. No Benghazi, or billions of dollars for our enemies. A good American.

You also need to remove your beta amyloid and then read Georgia/South Carolina history in the 40's and 50's!

Where is this roaring Immigration Battle? I don't see the progressives, or the Conservatives changing anything. DACA is still illegal. Many illegals are self deporting. I know one that went back to Mexico right after the election. I thought she went home for Christmas, but someone said no, she was illegal. Staying until the next Presidential election that goes to the Democrat, I guess. She will be very old by then.

Illegal aliens aren't "immigrants" and I don't give a damn what their work ethic is they are here illegally and need to be deported.

Illegals will not be deported by electing Democrat Congressmen, and Democrat Senators. Remove them at the next election in November, and you will see these people running back across the border. The problem is people vote the party instead of people who will get the job of deportation done.

Robots are coming and millions of low skilled jobs will be lost. Time for many millions of illegals to be deported.
