About 30 to 40 percent of the kids in this school, by the way, are DREAM kids. You wouldn’t know it looking at them, because they are as American as apple pie. But every single one of these kids, you might not be able to tell the difference, but a whole bunch of them — they’re worried about whether or not they’re going to be able to finance their college education of their immigrant status. They’re worried about whether, in fact, this country that they love so deeply loves them back and understands that our future rests on their success. Why wouldn’t we want to give them that certainty that you are part of the fabric of this nation, we’re counting on you, and we’re going to make sure you succeed? Why wouldn’t we want to do that?”

because there will be no end to this, we simply CANNOT feed or house the swarms of thousands that keep coming without realizing the CHAOS they are causing the country's economy! but what the hell do they care ! they are arrogant and demanding they be taken care of BECAUSE. If the damned parents didn't breed like rats & mice this might not be happening to us. And if construction of the fence had been completed we wouldn't be going through this right? again you have the dictator & messiah to thank for this. We sure don't expect mexihole to take our abandoned or orphan kids, right ? we tax payers take care of our own but SHOULDN'T BE OBLIGATED & PUT IN A SPOT TO CARE FOR SOME ELSE'S BRATS.

I think we should let them in. Live and let live is what I always say. You need to loosen up the bone, honey, and give someone else a shot.

I've already got a full house, buddy. Besides, they don't have to live with families who are already here - they can just get a place of their own.

Get a place of their own? Really?

How much are you chipping in to pay for them?

Why do you ask? No one has asked for me any help yet, but I always give my spare change to the homeless vets panhandling in my area. And why can't they have a place of their own? They deserve to get a rental like everyone else, preferably with a nice view.

Either you are an idiot, or you are failing at being sarcasitc.

You are going to pay for it whether you want to or not. You tax dollars at work.

No they are a threat to our economy. They have absolutely no right to be here unless they immigrated legally otherwise they are criminals.

Don't forget about rabies either. Some of them are rabid and wild. We should cut a break to the females who are 18 and older, however. Especially if they are hot.

transits and squatters are all of them who are squatting around DEMANDING ARROGANTLY & waiting for the handouts to survive in a country who's citizens DON'T WELCOME THEM OR CARE,where they forcefully expect to be cared for by tax payer money. Only problem is there aren't enough tax paying citizens WITH worthwhile tax paying JOBS to keep a steady amount of money coming in to WHOLLY support the hordes of numbers being herded and forced into states that are already suffering the ECONOMIC consequences of the invading numbers. Of course if you're one of these illegals, I see your concern but never the less it is WRONG TO FORCE YOUR PRESENCE & IMPOSITION WITHOUT GOING THROUGH THE PROPER PROCESS.

Like it or not these poor children have been msnipulated and are in costody of the U.S Marshalls service. They are considered federal felony suspects who will be assumed to be innocent until proven guilty in federal court. They must be tried, convicted, processed, and deported.
