    yes it was a serious offer. Reid has no intention nor does obama of passing anything short of giving these people amnesty and that isn't going to happen. so evidently they are not serious in passing any meaningful legislation.

    the house bill had everything in it that was needed.

    if reid was serious about the issue he would conviene a emergancy session of the senate and vote on the bill or put the bill up for debate with amendments.

    Or more likely large portions of it will pass into the hands of businesses owned by democrats who will launder the legitimate taxpayer dollars and give it back to Obama and his fellow travelers to be used as walking around money in the next election cycle.

    you honestly believe that they are making that trip just to suck up government benefits? man.
    Let us begin with the word you are missing. Illegal. They have entered the country illegally. We can eliminate the comforts of the welfare state and we will have Americans working again instead of plundering their neighbors.

    Throw them out and declare the state who helped them arrive at our borders as hostile nations.

    Nope, only if you cross the border illegally first and then ask for it as an excuse to stay. And once again, the humanitarian asylum thing is bogus in this case. They are gaming the system.

    The NG doesn't do squat and is not authorized to. The sending of NG troops to the order by Perry was just political posturing.

    Americans once did the same thing in Canada and were allowed to stay.

    The National Guard has fought in Wars & rescues people in environmental or humanitarian crises all the time in the U.S. Show some respect, please.

    Fraud in the inducement has always been illegal.

    Throw them out. All of them. Begin by actually securing the border. Then let's depart every single illegal that is already here. We can still catch and release as long as the release occurs in another country.
