Don't need reform.

We need enforcement.

Reality is...... I smell another amnesty.

We may as well give our immigration laws to France or Greece. We damned sure aren't using them.

That is the right thing to do...do it safely,do it securely and making immigrants pay a fee and take them accountable for any crimes that would ban the bad ones to remain in the country,but create a smart system that allows the good educated and/or hard working people living in this country to obtain residency renewable every 5 years or so and based on a criminal background good behavior and mandatory English classes and after passing a test give them some kind of permit to stay ...

Right thing to do?

That's what Kennedy said back in '86.

That didn't work so well, did it?

Obama said during his 08 campaign that doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result was in sane. He said things would be done differently if he got elected.

He lied. He spewed the same tired old lies this time around and you people believed him, again.

Kiss America as you know it goodbye.

I agree! We can't even take care of our own now. Something must be done.

Those who stay must be required to learn the English language. How do you drive if you can't understand English? How do you complete a job application?

"That's what Kennedy said back in '86."

86?

You mean the Reagan amnesty?

Let's not pretend that only one side of the political aisle has played the amnesty game and let's not pretend that the current far right republican position is the only position the party has taken on this issue.

I'm opposed to a mass amnesty and to a pathway to citizenship for most of the people in this country illegally, but I'm also a realist and I understand that we are not going to deport more than 10 million people.

There is going to be some sort of legal status for many of the people who are currently in this country illegally.

That's just the way it is.

The question is, are you going to be part of working out a deal that everyone can live with or are you simply going to go on and on with this "enforce and deport" mantra and have no say in the final legislation at all?

I have a black and white dog named Obama. He crapped on my new Persian rug that I just had imported from Benghazi. He was mad because I ran out of his treats and hadn't gotten back from the store yet with his two favorites, Guinness and termites on a stick. He tried to cover the mess up with his toys and a pillow and whatever he could find. But it still stunk to high heaven. Now there is nothing to do but uncover it, deal with it, and punish that bad dog. My house is painted White. I cannot allow him back in it after what he did. BAD DOG. Where's my newspaper?

Kennedy drafted the bill, pushed it through the Senate. He stood on the floor of the Senate and guaranteed the borders would be secured and immigration laws enforced. We all know how that turned out.

Reagan reluctantly signed it and later said it was the most regrettable action he ever took.

If you think another amnesty is going to be any different than the past 7, you've been drinking too much liberal kool-aid.

Have you been following the news the past few years? Deportations are at record levels and the the flow of illegal immigrants into the country is now measured in negative numbers. There are more people leaving the country then there are entering it. More enforcement under Obama than any of his predecessors.

By the way, what did you mean when you mentioned France and Greece? You do realize that neither country has any immigration laws of their own. They are both part of the EU.
