these guys are too stupid to be represent us. so, they shouldn't

ILLEGAL aliens are not "immigrants". they are not citizens of the usa. they have no right to protest not being a citizen of the usa.

they are FOREIGNERS in the usa ILLEGALLY.

and these congressmen are siding with them?

Really? A congressman defending illegal aliens in our country is an honorable thing? I thought they were supposed look out for the best interests of our CITIZENS and our country? They don't know that illegal immigration is against the law and an invasion of our country? Do tell!

It's all about corporations and there slave labor. They better move these co's South and take the illegals with them. If corporations want too flood this Country while we support illegals, they need to be shut down, fined, and business licenses taken. No one wants them but big business, Wendy's, Taco bell, Etc. He's getting his pockets and freezer lined with money too try too push this chit down our throats.

He is but a symptom of what is wrong with this country...he should be more concerned with the millions of Americans out of work, many of whom were unskilled workers who lost a job to an illegal. He should be more concerned with keeping them out, instead of trying to gift them with the ability to remain and grab more.

Irony is that many illegals who come via Mexico hate Blacks and Blacks are the one's suffering the most due to the illegal immigration cost .

This AA politician is clueless or could not care less.

I agree but in reality I do not see many politicians actually doing much as far as deporting illegals nor truly closing the borders . All we get is ENDLESS talk .

Cockroaches are incredible survivors, having survived since the time of the dinosaur, and it is speculated will live long after mankind (ie the gringo) destroys itself and most of the planet. I consider it a compliment to be compared to "la cucharacha". Mucho Garcias.
