We would not have this problem if our borders were secure and we prosecuted those who come here illegally but we have Mr. Obama (Not my President) and our government sending them the wrong message. Come to America we will feed you clothe you make sure you have a place to live pay for your healthcare and we will give you $$$ so you do not have to work. Make sure you bring your whole family. The more people you bring the more $$$ we will give to you. It is ok if you keep having who come into this country illegally as criminals with stiff fines and penalties. Instead more children. Does not matter how many for we will take care of them too. Not only will we pay for their schooling we will let them go to college for free. These illegals should

Securing our borders and prosecuting illegal alien interlopers is the function of the U.S. Government. After 9/11, it became imperative for our government to ensure terrorists would not be able to enter the country. Somehow, liberals in our government (many of whom voted to approve and extend the so-called "PATRIOT Act") have ignored that fiduciary function, and now seek to create a larger voting block by hinting at amnesty for these illegal aliens. So, we have an Anti-Terrorist measure--which basically erases many of our civil rights--passed by the very same liberals who allow 'undocumented aliens' to freely enter the U.S. Indeed, they REWARD them with citizenship! One day we'll wake up and smell the irony.

be fined and forced to pay restitution for being here illegally and any money that they stole from the taxpayers they should have to pay it back. They forfeit the right to come here legally until all fines, fees, and back taxes and any money stolen are paid in full. It must be mandatory that they speak the english language upon their being approved to return in a legal way. No more being politically correct. You will carry proof with you at all times so if you are questioned about your status you can show that you are legal. If you can’t then bye bye. We will not change our country for you to feel welcome. If they are caught a 2nd time in this country illegally then they give up the right to ever apply to be a citizen. We welcome you...

As the immigration reform Gang of Eight inside the Beltway prepares to announce a deal later this week, claiming border security will come before a path to citizenship for millions of illegals, Border Patrol agents have seen illegal border crossings double and warn the cutting of agent work hours will only result in less border security, not more.

"We've seen the number of illegal aliens double, maybe even triple since amnesty talk started happening," an agent told Townhall, who asked to remain unnamed due to fears of retaliation within Customs and Border Protection [CBP], something he said is common. "A lot...
