it looks to me before any talks on immigration the first thing is to secure our borders like was supposed to of already been done.

86 was supposed to be the fix yet the only thing done was give shamnesty. even though all agreed on the rest of the deal nothing else was done.

we have been told this that and the other while our gov sits on its hands leaving the door wide open and rewarding all comers.

the only thing needed to be addressed is 100%enforcement on everything from jobs to ending birth right citizenship.

Citizenship is vital. It will add 30 million more benefit and service starved uneducated peasants through the legal device called "Chain Migration". The quickest way to end America as we know is to add that many with ZERO chance for opportunities for them to stand on their own two feet.

Support Reid. It's a Win/Win. Betray your Country and your kids.

What are we gonna do with the next 11 million that crossover illegaly?
What i dont like is a number of our veterans are homeless and they dont do shit for em. But tyet they want to give these people citizenship AND send there asses to college on our dime..........Fugg that.........
That's exactly what will happen. You see.... politicians are not dedicated to sound border security. They'll fund it some years and defund it other years to give tax breaks to companies & the rich while leaving you and I with a clusterfck of a mess down the road.

Moreover... keep in mind that our veterans and homeless are already citizens, an illegal alien is not. We should not give illegal aliens citizenship but instead paths to legal status only.

Topix rules do not mandate English only. I suggest that you assimilate into American culture and learn a 2nd language.... preferably Spanish.

A fence will not stop illegal aliens. Did you know that 40% of all illegal aliens are what's known as visa overstayers? Meaning that they entered by lawful means but never left when their visa expired.

This is where we need to focus.

Until we fortify our borders that mirror that of the 38th parallel in Korea, there will always be a guaranteed influx of illegal aliens from all our borders.

We can hardly get our government to build a few miles of border wall at the southern border so don't expect any real progress on border security anytime soon!!

I make no excuses for the astonishing political ignorance and complete lack of gratitude to America exhibited by White majority voters. Illegals didn't cause this disaster. Cowardly Whites allowed the invasion and colonization of their OWN Country.

Disingenuous argument. No one ever said the fence was the cure all for illegal aliens. Like anything else, it will take a multiple solution approach but appears it can't be done without it.
In your below comment you clearly disseminate rhetoric that suggest otherwise. Did you know that House Republicans cut $600 million from border security in 2011? So for you to say that the Obama Administration to to blame for not enforcing the law, you need to remember that it was House Republicans who stonewalled funding for Obama to do a better job.

Put the pot down for a minute. "English is the de facto national language of the United States, with 82% of the population claiming it as a mother tongue"
"Spanish is the second most common language in the country, and is spoken by over 12% of the population"
In approximately half the state English is the official language.

Okay, now you can take another toke.
What does English being the de facto language of the USA have anything to do with Topix allowing comments made on these forums in any language that the person chooses?

Had every President and Congressional body after the 1986 immigration reform act enforced those laws, we would not be in the mess we're in.

Unfortunately, our politicians love illegal aliens. They're the groundskeepers, maids, nannies and menial workers of the American elite.

Heck, even I had a gardner for a few years who I suspected of being an illegal only to get rid of him solely based on a blind racial assumption.

Agreed...that's it in a nutshell. Some of our policitians are being dictated what to say and do by the lobbyists of the industries who want illegals here. It means money in their pockets and then they stuff the politicians' pockets, while they continute to strip whatever is left in working Americans's pockets. The best interests of Americans are not being served.

Nobody is discounting illegals from other countries, it's just that illegals from south of the border happen to be the most vocal about getting their every whim fulfilled simply because they managed to sneak in and scoop up some unskilled jobs. They have been goaded into believing that we owe them something, when in reality they never thank this country for the blessings that which they received. They steamroll over Americans and then wonder why they are held in such disdain.

could be do to the media and the government saying it is from the south and add in that every time an illegal alien gets caught and whines it is from the south of us. when there is huge gatherings making demands as if they are citizens it is the peoples from our south.
the rest of the illegal aliens when caught just go away silently do to not being taught that they are owed for being criminals.

I see NO reason, to give out our valuable American citizeship, like it was the door prize, to anyone, let alone, to illegal alien criminals. My familly came here LEGALLY a hundred years ago, and they followed the rules. So can everyone else.
I strongly believe that we need to cut our immigration numbers for LEGAL immigration, as well. This country's popultion has exploded, and we are seeing the effects with droughts, water shortages, etc, and it will only get worse in the years to come.
REVERSE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP, STOP ALL OF THE ENTITLEMENTS TO ILLEGALS, and they will stop coming and go back to where they came from. NO welfare, foodstamps, drivers licenses, no free K-12, public education, no free healthcare, except for medical emergencies and vaccinations,(no, a nine month pregnany is not a medical emergency). I rest my case.
We need to hold our elected officials feet to the fire until they start to uphold our laws, and support American citizens and legal residents.
I am ashamed that someone who works in the medical field would have the cold heart to want to take away the rights of a CHILD who was born in the U.S, what fault do they have ? They can't stop themselves from coming into this world, they also have the RIGHT to be a citizen because that's what written in the constitution, yes remember that piece of paper that tell us our rights, so uneducated, ignorant people like you won't try taking them away ?! It's sad that you would also want someones education to be taken away, sounds to me like your living in the wrong century! The day will come when you too will be a forced out of what you call home! I'd hate to ever be your patient, and I'm ashamed to know that we work in the same field. By the way, Happy Martin Luther King Jr, day!
And for your information, most people on food stamps and welfare. are Americans and blacks. Also racking up their credit cards buying stuff and living a life they can;t afford!

Blah, blah blah.
"Countries that Grant Automatic Birthright Citizenship

Argentina, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Pakistan, Spain, United States, Canada and Venezuela.

The United States is one of only two developed countries that still grant automatic birthright citizenship!

Countries that do NOT Grant Automatic Birthright Citizenship

Algeria, Australia, Belgium, Columbia, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Kuwait, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, United Kingdom, and Zaire"

We need to address this because of the immense costs associated with these jackpot babies who become a burden on federal, state and local budgets....who gets stuck with the tab? Taxpayers, which are becoming a minority.

Too bad Mexicans don't think the same about their countryman. Their government could make the country a nicer place to live, but they give the people the shaft.
