And yet brown nose wants to give illegal alien students an 80 million dollar grant program so they can attend OUR colleges for free. What the hell is happening? Better yet, who in the hell gives him the authority to do that, not the California voters.

Agreed, he's good at spending - on things that are not near as important as secure borders are. I truly hope we do not suffer another near 9/11 disaster by some faction that comes across the border. If so there is no telling where the American people will go with it.

I agree, we've had enough natural disasters this year. I'd like to see all these countries we've helped come to our aid.

Makes you wonder why the Republican controlled House does not appropriate more funding considering the fact that they claim to be tough on illegal immigration.
