Sen. Marco Rubio has been pressing his GOP colleagues to back immigration reform, arguing that if they do not, President Obama could legalize many undocumented immigrants on his own.

The problem is that were living in a day and age inwhich there often are no limitations on things, andeverything goes very fast.
In such a day and age,the Republicans have decided to bicker for months about an immigration bill that cant even be called an amnesty,thus proving, that they are definitelynot living in this day and age.
I guess the expression for this is "they are just trying to sit it out".
And all those poor immigrants whod hoped that for once the Republicans would "dance" gracefully have
once more been disappointed.
With Republicans being this pigheaded, Id say:
"Why Not ?" Actually, Im beginning to think that this is the very reason for why god has appointed
Barack Obama as president of the United States:
In order to resolve a few weighty issues which take
enormous amounts of explaining, formulations as well as resolve to get done. So the answer to the
question is: A move like that would be just the
kind of thing the Republicans need in order to wake up and take of their 18 th. century whigs!
The problem of illegal immigration wont go away
by playing ostrich-games, so if nothing else works,
why not try the option of "executive order"?

Executive Order, how sweet that sound. I have been saying for years that is the only way
for the Racist Republican Idiots (RRI) to know that there
is a power greater than themselves who ain't GOD !

OK. I THINK I GET IT
Let me see if I understand all this....

IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU
GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR.

IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.
IF YOU CROSS THE AFGHAN BORDER, YOU GET SHOT.
IF YOU CROSS THE TURKEY BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU SPEND
THE REST OF YOUR LIFE IN PRISON!
BUT, IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET:
A DRIVERS LICENSE
A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD
WELFARE
FOOD STAMPS
AND, FREE HEALTH CARE?

Oh well sure. That makes perfect sense.

Why have immigration laws if the Democrats are just going to ignore them? Why have laws at all if the lawless Democrats will just do as they please anyway? We live in an age when immature people are in authority, and we have no control over our own legal borders. If the Republicans ever want to hold office again they better hold the line on illegal immigration.

Obama has been quite successful at picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce and those he wants to ignore, so don't underestimate him.

The DACA policy he enacted protects children brought here illegally by their parents from deportation. It provides them with legal work permits, access to colleges, driver's licenses and many other special privileges.

Now that DACA has been implemented, the children are whining that their parents should be allowed to stay here with them and the illegal parents are whining they should be allowed to stay here with their children.

You see, this is what happens when you give illegals special treatment and privileges...give them an inch and they'll take a mile! They'll find a loophole in the system and exploit it to the fullest extent to get what they want.

Ever notice how illegals are always pictured with their children when they're whining about civil rights? They want us to believe it's all about the poor little children. How could we be so mean and tear little children away from their parents?

They use the children born here to gain access to housing, medical care, education and welfare. They are now exploiting the children they brought here illegally to justify staying in the country with protection from deportation and gaining access to certain benefits.

Illegals have long been aware of this country's compassion for children. They are exploiting it and using it to their advantage too. Sadly enough, many people and even our own leaders, are falling for it hook, line and sinker!

Don't put it past Obama to grant the same privileges to millions of illegal parents here by claiming they should not have to leave their children.

Although the DACA policy is suppose to be temporary, it will be political suicide for any President elected after Obama to reverse it or terminate it. Illegals, their supporters and elected officials will come out of the woodwork, pulling on our heartstrings crying about "the poor little children!"

Illegals really don't care about citizenship anyway. All they want is to be allowed to stay here without fear of deportation and lick and lap from the big government trough. They want to walk around freely, doing as they wish, with no responsibility.

They don't want to be Americans...they want to be a bunch of Mexicans living in America!

It's time we start enforcing our laws to the fullest extend and stop enabling illegals to use emotional arguments to excuse the chaos and disruption they've created in this country.

Why should the GOP thumb their noses at our immigration laws for an ethnocentric, special interest group? Amnesty or whatever else you want to call it is not in the best interests of this country nor its citizens. We have 23 million Americans out of work and dwindling natural and social resouces.

We did this in 1986 and all it got us was quadruple the number of illegals amnestied this time around. We need to get serious about enforcing our immigration laws instead of rewarding those who break them just to placate some ethnocentric, racist Hispanics who think their ethnic group should be above our laws. Who the hell do they think they are?

If you are really fed up with the way the country is being run then do something about it. Run, don't walk to register to vote, and be the first in line to vote in 2014.

Do you understand the difference between legal, and illegal? We have laws. The Democrats, RINOs, and the illegals might not respect laws, but most Americans do, and we want all the people who have applied to enter the country legally to be accepted first, before the criminals.

Allow me to explain. I will keep it simple because you seem to not even be intelligent enough to unlock CAPS LOCK.

Illegal aliens are lowlife, lying, cheating, thieving criminals who believe they can violate the sovereignty of the US and be welcomed with open arms, welfare, food stamps, healthcare and educations. In reality, they are almost subhuman, with low intelligence, very few skills and no chance, absolutely NO CHANCE, of ever contributing to the US economy other than as gardeners, toilet cleaners and ditch diggers. They refuse or are unable to learn English, sometimes after decades in the US, obey only those laws they find convenient, drive drunk, rape and murder and when US citizens complain, the we tbacks call them racist. Either you are extremely stupid, are a we t yourself (actually, that's the same thing) or are a misguided liberal who cannot understand the difference between an immigrant and a law-breaking illegal alien. I in any case, GFY. GFY!

President Obama will pass an Executive Order on the closing days of his presidency.

This will add 11 million new voters to the 2016 election in which the Clinton/Biden ticket will win by a landslide vote.

The dimwitted Teabaggers (what's left of them) will whine and snivel to prosecute Obama but shortly after taking office, President Hillary will grant a blanket pardon to Obama and he will be untouchable.

The EO (or the Amnesty Order, as it will come to be known), will be litigated for decades to come.

You heard it here first, amigos.

It's clear that you don't know what the hell you're talking about.Obama can pass as many executive orders as he wants and it can only get illegal aliens a temporary legal status.They will not have the right to vote.I pray to God that Obama signs the order now,so you can see how fast Americans put a Republican in the White house in 2016.Democrats can have the entire latino vote and it won't even put a dent in the Republican victory. You mojados tend to forget where the vast majority of obamas votes came from.
