    Militarized border = federalized National Guard. That's the solution to this crisis. Also, partisanship gets us nowhere.

    You think our government wants to keep these people out?

    Democrats see more votes and RINOS see cheap labor....... The individuals getting screwed here are the poor and middle class citizens.... Your typical progressive poor or middle class supports amnesty because they believe their position makes them morally or perhaps ethically superior to rational people like me, when all I'm doing is*looking out for the best interests of all US citizens - progressives included.

    There is a difference between "amnesty" and "finding a way for illegal immigrants to stay providing they meet certain requirements."
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    Which is a flawed argument, man. Why is "send them back" off the table? Why isn't legal immigration the only kind of immigration we tolerate?

    deportion is not off the table, what is off the table is deportation without due process.

    No, you posted polls with loaded questions designed to gain a particular answer, that doesn't support your claim. And no, they are not immigrants, nor are they refugees, they are illegal aliens.

    You know what they do to "illegal" US citizens in Mexico? They throw their asses in jail, and they really don't feed you in Mexican jails.... Here we say "welcome" here is a foodstamp card, here is free housing and an Obama phone - just vote democrat often.

    But it's not going to the President because his party refuses to take it up.

    That's kind of an important distinction.

    A play on words. The law describes the process, it is not the same as the due process afforded citizens. In this case that's why the government is trying to shoehorn these particular illegals under a law for trafficking rather than normal border law.
