Nope, if you take off the 3 federal holidays between now & Dec 31st, there are 29 working days.

Speaker Boner has decided they will only work 13 of those 29 days, but I'm betting they get paid for all 29.

No.

1. Station Marines along the border with shoot-to-kill orders, ensuring no more illegals come in.

2. Once the border is 100% secured, we offer one time no questions asked free passage back into Mexico.

3. Then we create a path to citizenship for those illegals remaining.

Sounds good except for the passage to citizenship. What does it matter if they are legal or not? We still have to support them?

Not enough time ANYTIME. Never ever vote that crap into law. Quit sucking up to the illegal alien population and start deporting them.
America legalizes millions already. Don't legalize the illegal ones. Quit adding crap to my tax dollars.
Illegals will be the only ones NOT paying for dumba$$ obamacare.

The legal pathway to our country starts inside the immigrants own border,not ours!

Besides its not fair to the immigrants that are waiting in their own country to enter here the Legal" way.

What do you base your support on for amnesty of 11 million illegal aliens?

Some of them your relatives or friends?

That STILL doesn't solve the problem.

What are you going to do with the current 11+ million illegals?

Deporting them simply isn't a realistic option.

We don't have a large enough law enforcement force to go door-to-door & and stop every person in the country to check their papers; not to mention the constitutional issues.

Leaving them here in an illegal status obviously solves nothing either.

So WHAT do you plan on doing with them?
LOL!!!

DHS confirms cheaper to deport every illegal alien than allowing them to stay

Full story: www.examiner.com

On December 3, Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs, Nelson Peacock, responding to request from several U.S. Senators, including Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), wrote:“Our conservative estimate suggests that ICE would require a budget of more than $135 billion to apprehend, detain and remove the nation’s entire illegal immigrant population.”

In July 2010, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) released the results of a study which examined the costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local levels. The study found that U.S. state and local governments shell out $84.2 billion annually in various services (law enforcement, schools, social services, etc.), with California taxpayers alone, spending $21 billion on illegal aliens every year.

The same study found that $29 billion is spent every year in federal funds on illegal aliens.
So, while it would cost a one-time fee of about $135 billion to deport every single illegal alien in the country, it is actually a bargain considering the fact that it already costs us $113 billion annually to keep them here.
In other words, the mass deportation would pay for itself in a little over a year.

Incidentally, in 2007, the DHS estimated the cost of deporting all illegal aliens to be approximately $94 billion.

Correct, the majority of Americans support some path to citizenship

so there won't be as many illegals here.
" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in.
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and.
into the sunshine of America".

May 17, 2007.

And you're just going to throw out the US Constitution in the process?

Deporting all 11+ million illegals would require a police force of TENS OF MILLIONS doing illegal door-to-door searches & stopping every person on the street to prove their citizenship.

That would turn us into a police state.
I don't know about you, but my constitutional rights are worth more than $135 billion, and I didn't spend 20+ years in the military only to see those rights thrown out because politicians in BOTH parties refused to secure our borders.
Well I spent 20 years in the Military with two tours in Vietnam 1966 & 1969 and I say you're wrong!

We have immigration laws in place right that should be enforced were it not for B.O. and Janet turning a blind eye.

Are they not in violation of the U.S. Constitution?

If they're legal, then they have to pay taxes and help pay for their own support.
