Strawman - nobody advocates rounding them up and deporting them. They can be encouraged to leave for home through proper enforcement of employment restrictions. Costs the taxpayers next to nothing compared to the mess of trying to deport these Illegal Aliens.
He does know it. He also was an early, and still a strong, supporter of Common Core. He also believes Americans are wastrels and losers who need "immigrants" (including illegal aliens through amnesty) to re-start the country's economy.

I disagree. Obama is not a Muslim. He is certainly sympathetic to Muslims, after all he was raised in a Muslim country as a youth. But in all actuality he worships at the "Church of The Won".

Let's not forget Gates also has spent his money on at least one high profile anti-gun issue in Washington state. I don't know if he's done this before, or will do it again (the latter is more likely now that he's done it once).

My thought on reading that they are "pro-immigration" was to wonder if they are "pro-immigration" in the same way I'm "pro-immigration". I'm all for those who immigrate to this country in a lawful manner. We have a Daughter-in-Law who is an immigrant to the US. I am steadfastly opposed to those who enter the US, or remain in the US, illegally. I don't engage in the "strawman" of "we can't deport all of them". Of course we can't find and deport all of them. But if we make it hard to find work*, the majority will find their own way back home. We also need to re-define the Refugee program to eliminate the current administration's adding of "economic" and non-warfare related "violence" to the definition of issues for which we will allow people to claim "refugee" status. IIRC, anyone given Refugee status automatically is eligible for all the welfare benefits the Federal government (and states too?) can grant. Somalis aren't settling in Minnesota for the change in accustomed climate. * A couple of things which would go a long way to accomplishing this goal are to make it very painful for an employer of illegal aliens (whether of one or 100) to be caught employing the illegals and establish a working, effective and mandatory e-Verify system.
Perhaps the reason for this is he only comments when he's off his meds?

Because she wants the Republicans to p!ss off the base by passing some sort of amnesty. One step at a time is still amnesty.

The House has passed a funding bill. It is up to the Senate to consider it. But McConnell claims "his hands are tied" because the Democrats won't play nice. There is no question about how Harry Reid managed to get so much done to us, and block so much so His Imperial Executiveness didn't have to make a decision to Veto a bill. He had a compliant Minority Leader very willing to let Dingy Harry do anything he wanted with little opposition (primarily Cruz, Lee and sometimes Paul).
OK, I'm a racist, a bigoted white man and a xenophobe to boot. I'm still in favor of strongly encouraging all those here illegally to head home. That rabble rousing Congresscritter from IL can LMA (for those up on German contemptuous phrases).
Bloomie isn't backpedaling. He hasn't even said he "misspoke". He still believes it, he just doesn't want everyone to see video of his stating his belief.
