Immigration fiasco

Well, for the time being Senate bill S 1348 is off the table. Not dead!! they say, but I think they speak with forked tongue. If it isn't dead it should be. Michelle spoke to the present situation and the whole illegals' right on target when she was a guest on O'Riely's this evening. Bill could hardly control her. She tried to correct him and his 'we can't Kick out 12,000,000 Illegals." She told him to stop saying that about breaking up families etc etc. He then asked her if her neighbor was an illegal, working and not causing any problems, whould she turn him in. She said if he was breaking the law, which he was if he was illegal then YES she would turn him in....and so it went. I'm with her.

Illegal is Illegal and the congress is always spouting "the rule of law", "the rule of law." Well, they're breaking the rule of law so let us enforce the laws presently on the books and get on with it.

States, cities, or towns who have passed amnesty laws or provided sanctuaries should be cut from receiving Federal funds and states that have passed laws giving Illegals free medical care should be divested of Medicaid funds also...Only my opinion.... which really doesn't amount to much...

If it was up to me (which it sure as hell isn't), I would deport every single one of those 12 million illegals. For everyone that was deported, I would allow one that was obeying the rules and on the waiting list in their own countries to come over (can't take that many people out of the labor force). But I realize that with the Government the way it is, we will never get what I want.

The Senate tabled the bill, when they should have just kept going with debate and ammendments. The bill is far from perfect ... but better than what we have now which is practically open-borders.

I realize the complexity of this issue. There is much that does not meet the eye. At first glance this bill might have been better that nothing. The biggest problem we have is the people that we hired to represent us have been doing nothing but further feathering their own nests. They couldn't care less about the people and the nation. There has been no cost analysis on this bill. The reason is that it would be astranomical and there is no way to get a handle on just how many there are here already. The latest figure is 12, to 20, Million. We are already giving medical assistance in ER's to illegals. Under the Carter (peanut) tour of duty he passes the Social Security to all Illegals over 65 and they certainly didn't pay into the system. People who are working illegally under false ID's are allowed to take a earned income credit, on their kids living in mexico. and the beat goes on. I understand that McCain passed into law in the state of Arizona, Medical for illegals. This is all assinine. I don't understand it. Why should I have to pay my taxes to support people here illegally. We have laws on the books. Lets enforce them and revisit these laws that encourage this illegality and terminate them.

DCAT: Thanks for the visit. We are so deep into this mess, I don't know where to start. I do know that releasing illegal aliens should be stopped. They should be sent back to where they came from

Mike M. Thanks for the visit come back often....

By the time they get around to immigration again ... I fear we may have 25 million plus illegals to deal with. They need to do something now.

Paul, I don't mind them talking about it but, It's a mess and I'm afraid they are not looking at the total ramifications of this bill. There has been no cost analysis, and they cant get an accurate one because they don't know if we have 12 or 40 million illegals here now, not to mention how many come over each day. If they want to talk then do it with some semblance of what it entails overall to approve this bill and cost analysis. What we will need in the way of Social services, /total administration,ramifications of Social Security, Disability, Medicaid, Medicare,law enforcement,Unemployment compensation and insurance,housing and the beat goes on.....
