Comprehensive immigration reform was passed by the Senate last year with 68 votes, including 15 republicans. This also included increased border security as part of the bi-partisan package.

Boehner will not let the bill go to the floor for a vote / even though the House votes are there to pass this bill.

The Tea Party blocks his path.

Rubio is again lying.

"Slim Majority of Americans Would Vote for DREAM Act Law

Fifty-four percent favor granting legal status to illegal immigrants brought to U.S. as children"

http://www.gallup.com/poll/145136/slim-majori...

"Washington (CNN)- A majority of Americans support a measure that would give legal status to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children if they join the military or go to college, according to a new national survey."

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/12/...

Bi-partisan immigration bill passed with 15 republicans also voting in favor of the Dream Act / negotiated by the "Gang of Eight" - 4 republicans and 4 democrats;

"Washington (CNN)-- The U.S. Senate gave final approval Thursday to a roughly 1,200-page bill that promises to overhaul immigration laws for the first time since 1986, creating a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented residents while ratcheting up security along the Mexican border.

Senators passed the sweeping legislation -- initially drafted by the four Democrats and four Republicans in the chamber's so-called "Gang of Eight" -- by a 68-32 vote."

Your first web sites are old days and was before the illegals started coming in by the thousands.

Read what the people said on your last web site:

http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/27/politics/immigr...

The people are NOT in favor of all of these illegals. America can not afford them - we have American kids that have no food or a roof over their heads and you expect us to give $140.00 a day to the illegals? Our tax dollars should be for our own KIDS that are going hungry.

Made up numbers mean nothing, and they aren't your take dollars just because they cut into your EBT allowance.

Let me know when you find someone giving immigrants $1.

Yes a animal would not understand that paying a dollar for food for the criminal invaders is no different than giving them a dollar.......LOL

It cost the same to us?

Illegal immigrants have been dropping for years. This upturn is only of underage illegals fleeing violence associated with the American Drug War.

You don't speak for "the people." You're just an ignoramus.

Made up numbers- the only kind you use- are useless.

Actual immigration is down this year and down every year since Obama was elected.

From the peak year in 2007 when 12 million crossed the border.

Real numbers.

The wave of children are here because of the Bush Loophole in his 2008 law which restricts the ease of deportations of minors, requiring a hearing.
