Very biased article but it is good to see there are positive things going on in regards to illegal immigration. Enforcement does work and the lack of enforcement or even perceived lack of enforcement is detrimental to solving the problem.

There will be no Amnesty until after 2017, and then it won't be Amnesty. We will close the borders, and heavily fine those who are here illegally now, force them to learn English, and learn our history including the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Then when they have paid all the back taxes they owe we can put them behind the people here legally, and make them wait years for a path to citizenship. They have no rights. They are criminals, and they need to learn to respect America.

Saw my Congressman at a Memorial Day function, and had an opportunity to ask him about the Republicans granting immigration reform for illegals. and he said not to worry. There will be no reform this year, and certainly not next year. They can rally, and dance, and hoop, and holler, but it's over.

Hi Brenda. Exactly,amnesty is dead and staying that way. We need to oust the anti American scum in Washington in November and replace them with pro American leadership who will secure the border,enforce existing laws,cut off the vermin's tax payer funded freebies,get rid if birthright citizenship and deport the leeching criminals and their anchors. Good riddance to the parasites!!

Now why would Americans want to deport a person who feels this way about our country, our laws and our citizens?

Isn't that more or less what the senate bill proposes?
Oh well, no GOP president in 2017!!!

The difference is Democrats don't mean what they say. And lie, my God the truth isn't in them. So they can pretend whatever they want, Hillary can write a 29 page chapter on Benghazi, and lie on every page, because that is what they do. Only now Hillary can be subpoenaed, and it wouldn't be wise to lie to Congress under oath. It will be interesting to see how she gets around her truth, and the real truth. Congressman Gowdy will certainly have fun with that one.

Fines, learn English, history, back taxes, long waits?

That is exactly what is required by the Senate's comprehensive reform bill. I am glad to see you have finally come around and are now a supporter. Good for you.

It is a joke, Gentlemen. There is no way these scum bags will learn English, or pay fines, or do a damn thing to help themselves become citizens. They are totally useless. They are criminals. Criminals do not make good citizens. Yes it is the Senate bill, and it is going nowhere.

Fine. Congress should just vote on the Senate bill then. Since nobody will bother applying what difference does it make? We get the reform and will be happy. Nobody will take advantage of it so you will be happy. Everybody wins.

No one wins until these scum bags are back in their home countries. We don't need them, and if the Government agencies can't find them maybe we should put bounties on their heads, and I bet the out of work Americans will bring plenty of them to the border.
