It is NOT the obligation of the American taxpayer to support or give jobs to an umpteenth Henson ignorant, unskilled lowlife. That's the job of the rich, European descendants who run Mexico and are the LEAST TAXED UPPER CLASS IN THE CIVILIZED WORLD. They think they can just throw their trash over the fence and let Americans give them whatever they demand.

What a tear jerking story, how about the people here legally that might loose their job to him for lower wages, or the tax dollars he will suck off of us. He doesn't want to be an American, he just wanted to take his tax free income back to mexico. How about spending it where you make it. They never will have a sense of community, when they can't wait to get the hell out of here after they used us. So I say screw you and the rest of you so called dreamers, its not the American dream.

"They think they can just throw their trash over the fence and let Americans give them whatever they demand."
Now why would they think that? is it because corporations and the current administration gives them the green light? Looks that way to me.

Since when is it the American dream to come to this country illegally, live as a criminal while lying, cheating and stealing enough money to be able to move back home and live just above the poverty level, produce herds of children that you cannot afford so that they can continue the same cycle of poverty and criminal behavior?

Getting rid of Obama will not solve anything. I wish it was that simple. Obama is not the cause, he is just a symptom. Obviously a large segment of our population is gullible and greedy enough to support a government run on personalities and hand outs. Until the attitude of “Me” is changed things will only get worse. Look at the great depression and the attitudes that preceded it. We are headed to year 7 of the great recession and it may take a full blown depression to wake up the “Me” generation to the fact that the government cannot give you what they have not taken from somebody else.

glad 1 more is gone.

funny thing reading this,from what i know of the great depression here in the USA it sounds alot like the story except for one thing,broke and down American citizens did not run to other countries and break their laws.

seems a culture of crime is all they have,the grass is always greener when someone else waters it kind of thing. instead on standing up and do with what you have like Americans have done,these folks are taught slither into the USA and rob from them.

that is also what is hurting our economy.

the reform crap will help this cycle keep going non stop,until the door is slammed shut and laws enforced it will continue.

Well said. And our Country pays Harvard Professors to study this trend and yet, that intelligent answer is always scoffed by Lib's. Everyone is welcome, even though we cannot recognize the Country we grew up in anymore. Our children compete in Schools, Colleges and job's with people not invited in. I don't understand the insanity of the people who try to run this Country, and Micheal Savage mentioned today, Obama is ramming a backroom deal to give some amnesty. Obama is right in the forefront of socializing our Country by bringing a leveling system here so we all live equally. Doesn't work. Never has.

maybe legal action can be taken against them one by one in local areas. just have to find some lawyers who will stand up on these laws.
