Meanwhile, here in America that 7 billion dollars could be put to good use. When are these morons in D.C. going to realize that if a water pipe bursts in your basement you don't run down to your neighbor and help paint his house.

Minerals resources are in abundance all over the African continent that we need towards technological advancement China do as well and they are advancing towards that goal in like manner so that is an investment with huge returns in the future.

Do the Democrats that are so eager to brand Republicans for looking for a different type of Illegal alien reform bill understand the meaning of Illegal. These people they want to make citizens are criminals.

Most foreigners come here legally, they work hard, make good lives for their families, and they love America, The illegal aliens come to lay around, and collect the freebies, and how can you respect that kind of unprincipled people? You can't.

Agreed.

The liberal argument is that the illegals come for the jobs provided by big businesses wanting cheap labor.

I disagree with that premise for one simple reason. When able, those cheap laborers and their families don't vote to support those big businesses. They vote for Democrats that are consistently against big businesses but work their asses off to provide taxpayer funded freebies to those cheap laborers.

It isn't about businesses, nor cheap labor. It is simply about votes.
