    That's your excuse for Reagan handing out citizenship to 11 million illegal immigrants? Weak sauce man.

    Yes, whatever happened then does not give Obama a free hand to allow millions more to come in. If that's the case, we may was well just take down the border.

    this is the actual law that Reagan passed
    having trouble copying it, so i will just refernce it
    8 usc 1101
    part b sec 111
    para a (2 essental elements)

    fool me once, shame on you
    fool me twice, shame on me

    the important part is the furtherance of border security to deter more aliens from crossing our border
    that really worked well didnt it?

    only 12-14 million new ones.....

    Everyone acknowledges that the Amnesty bill signed by Reagan failed. So why do liberals want to do it again.

    Can't liberals learn from past mistakes?

    You want to compare what President Obama may likely do, to a bi-partisan effort during the Reagan Administration to address what activists sold at the time as the once and for all solution to the illegal aliens living in the country?

    That's not just weak sauce, that's tasteless liquid.

    I was thinking this earlier... I've heard it repeated lately that we are all immigrants and the only true Americans are the Indians.

    I then wonder if the Indiians had a chance to do it over, would they enforce their borders a bit better and keep whitey out? i suspect so. Let's learn from their mistakes.

    Yeah, but it'll work better when they do it.

    No it was a stupid move then, and it's stupid now. Only then they hadn't done it before.

    Obama? you mean the guy they call deporter in chief because he's deported many people? Bush didn't deport as many as Obama and NOW you are scared of amnesty? Obama is trying to speed up the deportation and it's congress that is standing in his way because Republicans will not pass anything while he is president.

    Thanks for the case reference though. Pretty cool. I'll go check it out.

    Sure he is. Until Boehner grows a pair of testicles and defunds him Obama will continue to grow the tyranny. I despise Obama and I despise Boehner.
