    The only choice that matters to some people is to live or to die. People struggle to survive precisely because the choice is whether to try and continue living or to give up and succumb to deaths embrace.

    I know the world is full of problems, but like my signature states: I cannot stand it so I try to reach out for a better world.

    I don't know who are illiegals you want to deport but until you can identify them as being separate from the refugees, then I have to assume you mean to deport all illiegals regardless of circumstance.
    LOL!!!

    You just keep throwing **** against the wall, don't you? Now it's "refugees".

    You are rapidly losing what little bit of credibility you ever had, dude.

    Can you tell me how many of the illiegals are refugees? Can you identify each one without having to ask qestions?

    Who cares? If a person is a refugee, we have laws to deal with them as a refugee. If a person is an illegal alien, we have laws to deal with them as an illegal alien. All we need to do is apply and enforce our current laws.

    This isn't rocket science, dude.

    Then let me ask you this: is fulfilling the laws of this country require more deportations? Faster ones? What exactly is not being enforced.

    Mitch McConnell rules out govt. shutdown to block Obama immigration moves - Washington Times

    From the article:
    “We’ll not be shutting the government down or threatening to default on the national debt,” Sen. Mitch McConnell, the incoming majority leader, told reporters after meeting with his GOP colleagues, flatly ruling out an all-or-nothing showdown over Mr. Obama’s plans.

    More deportations? Sure. Faster ones? Maybe.

    How about not making up rules that are not included in any law to allow illegal aliens to stay in our country? For example, Obama, through EO, implemented the Dream Act. The only problem is...the Dream Act, while it was considered by Congress, was never passed into law. The EO doesn't enforce the current laws...it stands them on their ear.

    Another example: The Senate passed a bill that would grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. That bill has not been enacted into law as yet. But Obama threatens, by the use of EO, to implement at least the amnesty part of that Senate bill. That will also stand our current laws on their ear.

    So, Obama...instead of enforcing current laws is doing everything he can to make up his own laws...laws that have not been passed by Congress nor signed by him.
