we'd have border security if our fellow US 'citizens' quit hiring illegal workers...

proof positive came when our economy tanked and border crossings went to almost zero immediately. no jobs, no problem.

solve the problem, don't waste billions treating the symptoms....

We AMERICANS do not want illegals from Mexico here. No pathway to Citizenship ever! You illegals wouldn't pay, learn English and act human. You only take from the taxpayers cause your'e scum.

as usual, you have no clue as to what you are talking about. you could sneak into Mexico far more easily than you could sneak into the US.

try to use logic and facts some time. you might find it a refreshing change...

The government allows illegal mexicans to have Welfare, foodstamps, medicaid, free tuition for school.....so just saying no to hire won't stop completely. Most are here for the freebies. We need to deny them benefits.

mccain yesterday stated to let the house pass its version and the senate would just strip out the additional border patrol and control out of it in committee. way to legislate you lying buffoons. bait and switch is all they know. watch for middle of the night voting on this one just like obamacare.

No they don't. It always amazes me how little people know about topics they comment on. They always say the root of prejudice is ignorance. I guess there is something to that.

Yes and your'e one person who doesn't know what the comment is about. I live in a Border City. I see all the illegals so close that pie hole. Denying them any benefits would make a great many leave.

How smooth must be the language of the whites, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong look like right.

Exactly...And why I've always known this invasion has been entirely by design. Corrupt corporations and business's want this cheap labor that we all subsidize at the expense of the middle class. Hell even the shitty co's refuse to quit hiring them, like the hospitality industry in Nevada and McDonalds. So many illegals work here now and have brought our blue collar workers wages down, it's almost irreparable. Amnesty and the talk of it is strictly Political. There is only one way to get rid of them, and that's not to hire them. But this Government refuses to adhere too our laws. So we're screwed.

That sounds like some of the meaningless, melodramatic BS that comes out of Hillary's mouth. The humanity in us, it takes a village, we can do better, bringing IAs out of the shadows, change we can believe in, etc. etc.- What do those phrases mean? The truth is, they mean whatever the brainwashed listener wants them to mean, but in reality, they mean absolutely nothing.

And that's what most Americans want not the brain washing that still holds some in the past but an advancing America that she is going lead in 2017 and beyond, and there no one out there to stop that because it would be the will of the american people.

More unspecific words that will only mean something to the brainwashed people of hope and change. Vague BS.
