Americans are tired of their tax dollars not being used for Americans. The majority of Americans are against any Amnesty or Reform as they always have been. This administration needs to be arrested for NOT enforcing our immigration laws and putting us in danger of terrorists crossing our borders.
OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS ARE NOT BROKEN, IT IS OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT IS BROKEN.

If Obama violates Congress's immigration laws with a kind of mass immigration "amnesty" and I am elected U.S. Senator, I will work to impeach him and to void his action by Congressional action.

Well Senator, you are going to have your work cut out for you. Before you can go after Obama for using EO's you will first have to go after the past three Republican presidents that have also used Executive Orders in similar manners.

For example, President Ronald Reagan used executive action in 1987 to ease immigration standards for 200,000 Nicaraguan exiles in the United States, even if their requests for asylum had already been denied and orders of deportation were issued.

In 1990, President George H.W. Bush protected Chinese students who feared per
persecution if sent back to their homeland and he later delayed the deportation of
hundreds of Kuwaitis who were evacuated during the Iraqi occupation

President George W. Bush granted “temporary protected status” to as many as 150,000 Salvadorans after a devastating earthquake in 2001. The next year, he signed an
executive order that expedited naturalization for green card holders who enlisted in the military.

Guillermo, yes every President since Reagan has been bought off to our demise. You are not fooling anyone with your pretend moniker. You're defense of this take over of our Country has always been your favorite game. Because the United States of Mexico now exists, doesn't change the distortion that has taken place in this Country. Americans still live here regardless of your smuggling efforts to displace white america. Now you have lost the best thing you minority's ever had going for you, White Rich Business Owners.....I went into a Walmzrt in Reno today, and 80% were hispanics using food stamps. Thank's for helping to bring down the best thing minority's ever stole. My F÷=k v#$n Country.
