President Barack Obama's new declaration that he's open to legalizing many immigrants short of citizenship sounds a lot like House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders, an election-year compromise that numerous Republicans as well as Democrats crave.

Anything short of deportation is political suicide for whoever votes for this travesty of justice. What can you offer the people who went to all the trouble of entering the country legally if you try to justify the criminal behavior of the others? Are we a country of law, and order, or can we be compromised by a criminal element?

Obviously, when we have a president with illegal relatives using public housing, Medicare, skating on DUI charges, etc., we have been compromised.

I know why Obama wants illegals-legal. Because he says they will die anyway from GMO foods. GMO foods are not allowed in the WH or for his staff, China-home of led poisonining, won't allow foods that have been genetically grown in their Country. But its ok for the U.S.A. to eat those foods and die. Obama ok's whatever is bad for us.

Obama should change his title to Louie XVI. Then we call France and order the instructions on how to sharpen a large blade.

Approving the breaking of our laws for political gains is not only treason, but also criminal. Any congressional member voting for amnesty in any form is guilty and should be removed from office or impeached.

I don't think deportation is the solution. They just come back. It's not jobs that attract illegal immigration so much as welfare benefits and income from the illegal drug trade. The fact that the illegal drug trade generates as much income as the U.S. food industry, according to FBI statistics, illustrates the failure of the drug war. According to the same source there are over 30,000 gangs with over 3,000,000 gang members. The meth crack epidemic did not exist prior the creation and escalation of the drug war. We've been through this prohibition thing before with similar, but less severe results. While some may not believe the relation of the drug war and welfare with the illegal immigration problem all I can say is those who disbelieve have never owned property in a neighborhood taken over by illegal immigrants. End the failed policies and the real problem illegal aliens will go home on their own. If they're pulling their own weight without being on welfare or in a gang then I don't have a problem with them. Unfortunately most illegals are on welfare and/or are in gangs.

They won't come back if we put Agents on the border with shoot to kill orders. You leave about 100 dead border jumpers on the Americans side of the border for a week or so, and I guarantee they won't come back. Oh, how awful! The illegal alien left us with no choices. They will not respect the border, and it is time we got rid of the problem.
