    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I can post links in which what is claimed is 1/2 truth (politico) or another by pew research, which do you want?

    You also could look it up too. After reading some of the links, you'd be better informed, and make you a better debater.

    If this chart loads, it's from the new republic, source is the department of homeland security.

    You'll notice removals are higher under Obama.

    Neither you nor anyone who likes this post has any understanding of that graph. If an illegal hasn't committed a felony but are caught by ICE, they are allowed to remove themselves voluntarily (called a "return"). Others are removed without that option. It's like your current workplace allowing you to quit rather than firing you. Returns are allowed to file for visas in the future, removals not so much.

    The graph shows Obama has done a terrible job on this problem.

    And let's just say NO to any legislation and force the President to put forth an executiive order to move assests to the border for control.

    Then file a lawsuit and tell me who has taken obstruction to the next level .
    There are a lot of representatives in the House and they represent a lot of people.

    Why does Obama think he knows better than the representatives closest to the people?

    What you have to realize is that Obama does not give a damn about the American people.

    The presidency is like a toy to him. He thinks he can do whatever he wants regardless of the consequences.

    He's an arrogant POS. One of the most vile humans ever to have walked the earth.

    The immigration court system was backlogged with as many as 30,000 pending cases before the most recent surge. Final decisions by immigration judges can take years, but that supposes immigrants dutifully attend their assigned hearings. Many won't. As many as one-quarter of the immigrants ordered to show up in court in recent years have failed to appear, according to the Executive Office for Immigration Review, the Justice Department agency that runs immigration courts.

    Instead, the government has more narrowly targeted people who return to the U.S. after they were deported, people who threaten U.S. national security and public safety and adults who can be subject to expedited deportation that takes hours or days.

    The president has made several administrative changes to immigration enforcement, including a program to allow some young immigrants who came to the country before 2007 to avoid deportation and obtain a work permit for two years.

    Adult immigrants caught crossing the Mexican border illegally are generally removed from the U.S. within hours or days of their arrest. But a federal law dating to President George W. Bush's administration requires that unaccompanied child immigrants must be turned over to HHS within three days. From there, many are reunited with parents or other relatives already in the United States or other sponsors before the lengthy court process beings.....snip~

    Few immediate consequences for child immigrants
    We have native-born children living in poverty, so I don't give a rat's behind about living conditions in other countries. Let them take care of their own people! No more welfare and no more handouts from us! Maybe they'll go back where they came from. Why should America have to provide amnesty to those who have violated our laws and our sovereignty, and why the Hell does it have to be done immediately?

    Greetings, MMC.

    It wasn't OK. Can we learn from past mistakes, or are we going to repeat them?
