    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Of course border patrol has doubled since 2004-It's Bushy's fault
    Illegals are leaving because the economy is so bad under Ubama, they can't get ahead. Guess we can all thank Ubama for that. Bad economy=illegals leaving. That's one way I guess.
    Arizona's lowering crime rate is because more and more illegals are afraid to go there because of the immigration law passed by the state.
    If it sounds like Marx and acts like Stalin...it must be Obama

    Correct


    they are not doing that.
    Correct



    If the borders are not protected, we cannot be a sovereign nation.
    Correct


    If the federal government will not protect our borders, then it is up to the states to do what needs to be done.
    Correct


    Honestly, never in my life have I seen the federal government sue states who are trying to protect their own borders.
    Neither have I... It just doesn't make any sense. It's like the federal government has been taken over by a foreign entity and is at war with the real United States of America.

    What even more mind blowing, is that so many on the left support this action. Don't they realize what it is they are supporting here?


    You know it's not just Mexicans coming across that southern border.
    Correct


    Anyone who wants to get into this country illegally knows that is the ticket, that includes TERRORISTS, ISLAMIST EXTREMISTS, THOSE NOT COMING FOR A JOB, THOSE COMING TO HARM US!!!
    Correct

    Immigration reform is the answer to this problem, but the people who whine the loudest about illegal immigration are the same people who oppose immigration reform. Go figure.
    Not true.
    Reform is needed. But most likely not the reform you have in mind.
    We have tried amnesty. didn't work
    Dream Act has some flaws.
    Without stopping/reducing the influx of illegal aliens, other factors make no sense to implement until that is done.
    Better guest worker program is needed for those that do not want to change citizenship

    AT. it amazes me how you are so political biased/blind. Some of us would like reform. Just not your approuch to it.

    Yes, that is the standard response from those who don't really want reform. Unfortunately it's impossible to stop illegal immigration -- and it has already been slowed -- so that is not a valid reason to put off reform. This is a lot like the completely ineffective "war on drugs". You can't win this fight through interdiction. As long as there is a demand there will be a supply. It's obvious that, for many years (though not now due to the weak economy), there was a strong demand for immigrant workers. We should respond to that demand by increasing quotas. I agree with you that a better guest worker program is needed. We should also stop forcing immigrants to leave after they come here and obtained a valuable education.

    Your response is standard for those that want to turn a blind eye and give in without doing anything concrete. We can agree on the better guest program.
    You most likely won't like this, but here it goes.
    Do what ever it takes to eliminate the "birth right" of a child of illegal parents born in the US.
    Find a way to address the illegal alien crossing and continue to slow the influx of illegal aliens across the US borders.
    Improve the guest worker (migrant) program,
    Increase penalities to companies and illegal workers who do not follow immigrant worker laws.
    Allow States to play a greater law in assisting the Feds in controlling the influx of illegal aliens.

    Reimburse the States/county/local LE and medical facilities for all costs incured dealing with illegal aliens. (especially if illegal the feds continue with the stance of illegal immigration is only a federal domain issue).
