    And where is that money supposed to come from? More borrowing from China?

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I think they're the only idiots willing to keep sending us money - of course they're going to cash in one of these days too.

    I already supplied the cite to the Constitution. Did you want an actual quote?
    "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."

    Oh, sorry, I should be clear. If they're caught crossing the border they are indeed just sent back where they came from. No trial or anything like that. It's for people they catch who are already in the US that the whole trial and all that ensues.

    Actually the number of undocumented immigrants inside the US has been dropping for the last 3 years, and the number of illegal border crossings is way, way, down. The burden on the courts is mostly for the folks who are already here. Those are the big complicated trials.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    I don't know exactly what this amnesty covers but, how is this going to play out in terms of taxes?
    Will all of these new legal aliens get a pass on years of social security payments they should have
    been making? Are we adding hundreds of thousands or a million new people who will end up getting
    back more taxes than they pay in producing further strain on our economic situation? It doesn't
    seem like the ramifications of this were thought out very well. Right now the US needs some fiscal
    leadership, not someone pandering social issues which will add to the burden we're already coming
    up short on not too far down the road here
    . This was a slap to the face of all Americans.

    Maybe because not all Republicans are worried about the National deficit.

    And where is the money supposed to come from to gather them all up? It would take overtime, multiple shifts, more people, more transportaion, and more gas to gather and transport them. Let alone the costs of building and manning this so called "wall" conservatives want. There are also some conservatives that believe they should be jailed first before being sent back.

    Where is that money going to come from? More borrowing from China?

    From you favorite program. Or maybe let the States who want to assist in dealing with illegal aliens (more than what current ICE agreements will let them do)., Take money from CA bullet train grant, etc. There is funds if the feds want to do it.
