Those have to be about the lamest excuses the Feds have ever come up with.

When the United Nations gets involved, it is like family court.
There is no winner, the most vulnerable is damaged and a cost is imposed upon society that is not identified for a generation.
This to say, WH globalism should be impeachable.

again proving the powers that be in this country are against law and order as well as the "people"

the government caused all this mess its time they fix it or step aside and let Americans fix federal failures.

suing do to your own failure is shameful.

the so called leaders of this country should stand for the people of this country and not even listen to outsiders on this issue.

all their dirty backdoor dealings is biting them too bad it is not getting them locked up as well.

If the federal government had just done its job and secured the borders then there would be no Alabama immigration bill.

nope the racists are the ones who think do to skin color deserve special treatment above the laws. someone from mexico taking up for illegal aliens from mexico says it all.

we all know the type just trying to do better for their "people" yet their "people" are not of any color other than their own.

see America is a melting pot of all peoples legal,we have no room for invading criminals unless in a prison cell before deportation.
its not about skin tone as all racist seem to cry it is about law and order something illegal aliens and their supporters know nothing about.

Granted it's been fifteen years since I enrolled my kid in school, but when I did, I was required to submit his health record and birth certificate.

Oddly enough, I didn't feel singled out, or the subject of some racist plot against me or my multi cultural kid.

Since I was writing a check for tuition, books and fees, my drivers license was examined.

Did I miss a big payout for not suing?

The Feds need to do their job or step out of the way and let the states protect person and property.

for the record:
More illegals have been deported under Obama in 3 years, than in all of Bush's 8 years.
The last Amnesty enacted was under Reagan.

I'm going to have to correct you.

The Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA) Amnesty of 1986 - the "one-time only" blanket amnesty for some 2.8 million illegal aliens.

Section 245(i) The Amnesty of 1994 - a temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens.

Section 245(i) The Extension Amnesty of 1997 - an extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994.

The Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty of 1997 - an amnesty for nearly one million illegal aliens from Central America.

The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA) of 1998 - an amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.

The Late Amnesty of 2000 - an amnesty for approximately 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty.

The LIFE Act Amnesty of 2000 - a reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty to an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.

So?

Bush was a total weak sister when it came to illegal aliens. Reagan's plan was to be a one time, never happen again, strengthen the laws and borders deal....it failed miserably....illegals and overstayed visas (yes, I know they're the same thing) zoomed in by foot, air, boat, truck, and cargo vessel, in the belief it would happen again....that's one reason why it should never, ever, happen again.

my point was that blaming the immigration problem on this administration can be likened to monday-morning-quarterbacking.

this issue is DECADES old, not just the last couple of years.

It isn't a new problem? Holy smokes! It was a problem in the 60's and 70's when Cesar Chavez was fighting to get immigration laws strengthened and toss the guest worker program in the California fields. A true visionary, he knew the illegal alien would drive down wages and create joblessness among citizens.

The problem has become all that Cesar knew it would and then some. The migrant didn't just want the jobs no American would do (I tossed fruit to help pay for my education, btw) he wanted the electrician, mason, carpenter, roofer, mechanic, and fast food job, too. He wanted to be able to drive with impunity, wrecking others persons and property, then just ducking back across the border.

States are sick of their citizens being raped, robbed and murdered because the Feds refuse to do their jobs.

The time is now, regardless of what happened before.
