They will talk of secure borders and "tough enforcemnt" of laws employers of "illegals" but, of course, Obama will do none of that just as he does not do that now. What we are in for is more amnesty, higher unemployment and a new wave of "guest workers" to replace the ones told that they no longer have to work those "bad" jobs anymore.
    Hey once we have amnesty, the unemployment rolls will drop by millions in a day.

    On the other hand, since "immigrants" can't find work in the USA, they stay home and Obama can say border enforcement is under control so we can go right to amnesty. See how things work themselves out?
