    Too bad for the Libbos, that no one is blaming the illegal aliens for the illegal immigration issue.

    What's kind of silly is just saying that something is silly without explaining WHY you think it's silly.

    IMO, there are certainly folks who genuinely feel that we should lock down the border before addressing comprehensive reform (illogical as it may be), but this is primarily an argument foisted on the gullible by those who are simply dead set against immigration reform. Great strategy, really: propose something that's politically untenable and practically impossible as a precondition to even discussing the thing you have absolutely no interest in discussing.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Re: Marco Rubio says he would come to the U.S. illegally if he had to

    Under desperate conditions, there is no telling what I'd do for the self preservation of my family. Crossing imaginary lines wouldn't concern me in the least. However, and while I appreciate the man's honesty, he is a US politician. And unless I am mistaken, illegally being inside the US is still illegal, even if there is a heart grabbing "but". His mission first and foremost is that of American citizens, and comments like this are not going to be beneficial to Americans. Illegal immigration is like being invaded. Humanizing the action in personable terms is geared to elicit a favorable reaction to the action.

    When you live in a country where the vast majority of the wealth is concentrated in VERY few hands, that doesn't leave much for everybody else. We as a country do VERY LITTLE to pressure Mexico to address its patently unfair "divvy-up". On 7he ccontrary, American maquiladoras profit greatly from the desperation Mexicos economic disparity engenders.

    Crossing an imaginary line to a place where one can make enough to live and send enough home to support ones family isn't a big "moral" hurdle for someone who is starving.

    It says more about the system of imaginary lines than it does about the character of the individuals who cross them..
    The illegals are cowards. It is their duty to overthrow the Mexican system, not to make American workers suffer because of it. Our ruling class imported these invaders because they want cowardly workers. All along as this economic treason has been going on, our ruling class has become more and more like the Mexican ruling class. We need a Zapata as much as the Mexicans do.

    The multiculties might have to pay the price for their hatred of America, its people, and its traditions. It doesn't look that way now, but tamed people have a way of erupting suddenly with no indications of defiance beforehand. It even happened in Mexico in 1910, after 40 years of cowardly submission to a dictatorship. The equivalent death toll of that revolution today in America would be 18 million dead. Defying the will of the majority comes with a price.

    Far too many armchair experts out there.
    Yeah, we'd all come if we were sponsored by the American wage-gouging machine. If the American natives didn't have the guts to overthrow the economic regime that feels no loyal to its own people, we'd have no fear about taking jobs away from cowards. The Red, White, and Blue has turned yellow.
