Nope, just enforce the law - it's there for a reason.
No need to lie and say "Immigration needs reform" when we haven't, in fact, implemented the necessary controls to support existing policy. I'd bet that once the *complete* system is put into place, it'll work! Dems just want more votes and see this as a perfect opportunity to throw out a Constitutional responsibility and recruit at the same time.

When you put it like that I agree with you. But execution of current immigration policies isn't so black and white. Some illegals have children now that are US citizens by law. We can't just have a blanket deportation just like we can't have blanket amnesty and we can't throw out the parents yet keep the child. Yes the INS needs to step up. Yes the states need to take over if the feds fail with their duty. Maybe following through with current policy would work. Maybe boycotting and turning in businesses that hire undocumented workers would also work.

Department of State should do is: stop giving visas to Latinos, Ghanaians, and people from Muslim countries. The problem begins there with the counselors that keep given visa specially to woman that when in country with a visitors pass think that if they get pregnant right away and give birth to babies (with no fathers) that the immigration will not deport them. On top of that Emergency Medicaid pays for the hospitalization at the time of labor, that cost us thousands of dollars and please keep adding the baby is borne with the right to have Medicaid, and if disable there goes our Social Security monies. I live in a neighborhood that the whole complex is full of illegals from Ghana. This people are lazy and dirty. They are tuning this beautiful country into trash.

Can you all that are against Obama's immigration refom understand what it means to be separated from a husband, wife or children? Pleas dont be selfish or racial, think with your brains and be honest with your sl. Some people have been hurting for years waiting for the almighty US immigration reforms. Obama, please be human enough and act now.
If the illegals had STAYED where they BELONGED,they wouldn't have this problem of being separated from family.On the same token.If the illegals that were HERE quit screwing like rabbits and shooting out anchor babies,they WOULDN'T have this problem.
Simple solution. Eliminate the blanket automatic citizenship status for children born from illegal parents.That way,there IS no legal limbo or gray fuzzy area.They're ALL illegal and simply are deported.
We will never be able to rid ourselves of anchor babies and illegals trapped in legal limbo UNTIL the birther citizenship law is repealed and done away with.The ONLY way a child of an immigrant should be allowed to gain automatic citizenship because of birth is IF both parents are here legally.No documentation to prove legality? Sorry. Now GO HOME!
I have NO pity towards the illegals BECAUSE they have broken OUR laws,taken our jobs,said to hell with the consequences,get themselves preggo and shoot out anchor babies in litters that make rabbits look innocent.Anchor babies that WE will now have to PAY for with OUR tax dollars because their parents are ILLEGAL and cannot pay for themselves.Illegals are just like leeches.They find a free meal,hang on and suck everything they can get for free out,then move on to their next free ride and contribute NOTHING to the wellbeing of the community or individual.
I say eliminate the birther citizenship and send them ALL home!
Illegals and children of illegals have NO legal rights in this country.
Now,shall I tell y'all how I REALLY feel about illegals?
