Our Voice: President, Congress fail on immigration reform
The failure of the House to consider the comprehensive set of reforms approved in the Senate is another dreary example of congressional inaction on the nation's most pressing problems.

No need for Immigration Reform. We just need to enforce the laws we already have. But loser Obama is not doing so.

Yes, the do-less-than-nothing House has passed a whopping 54 bills originating in their chamber in their nearly full year in office. Their counterparts in previous congresses usually author and pass three times that. And if you subtract passing go-no-where bills to defund NPR, Planned Parenthood and other specters like Obama Czars and take into account their days off (next year theyre only set to work 109 days out of the ENTIRE year) theyve put in a lot of effort to be ineffective.
Which is what youd expect from self-hating government workers like the House leadership. Theyre illustrating how lazy, stupid and useless government can be - by example.
To sum up: the American people are paying more for less, working more for less and asking more and Congress is doing (wait for it) LESS.
The Occupiers are right. They are analytically correct in their assessment. Their government is failing them. As another Occupier put it, maybe its time to replace Congress with people.
"In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress."

Exactly. If we had a real leader, the border would be secure, laws would be enforced, and amnesty wouldn't be an issue. Deport all leeching criminals!!

Nice simplistic and even logical answer that shows you have really not done your homework.
Illegal immigration is about labor, profit and voters being brainwashed into accepting simple solutions (which by the way Washington will never allow to be effective).
And finally, consider beloved Harvard University's connection to Mexican cartels:
This is oh so much more insidious and complex than the majority of Americans want to believe.

Immigration Reform: Washington's Insidious Goal Is to Perpetuate Their System of Profit-Driven Illegal Immigration And Reform
Over one half of the undocumented who cross the border illegally (versus visa overstays) are Mexican. Another 10% or more are from Central America.
Tell me. Would the majority of these people come or stay in the US if they had a fair chance at prosperity living and working safely at home?
Tell me. Why does Washington support NAFTA and CAFTA free trade policies that create poverty in the undocumenteds' home countries which exacerbate their illegal immigration to the US and the necessity for immigration "reform"?
Profitized illegal immigration (for cheap labor) and immigration reform (for billions in border security tax dollars) have become institutionalized in Washington.
Just like their 40+ year failed "war on drugs" their goal is not to solve the problem; their goal is to perpetuate it for profit. Profit at the cost and suffering of not only the undocumented but US taxpayers too.
Take a look at the "Gang of 8's" funding requests for their S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act in Section 6 which the House will surely copy:
Pay particular attention for the Arizona pork loaded on Sections 1104(a) and (b). Research the insidious natures of "Operation Streamline" and "Operation Stonegarden". Immigration reform is all about money being made off the undocumented and US taxpayers.

Hi Brenda, these criminals need to be a little nicer to taxpayers like us who unwillingly support them, and their anchors.
