Reagan gave them amnesty. Bush sttopped deporting them. But, illegal immigrants are here because of Obama. Got it.....NOT!

Reagan signed an amnesty law passed by a Democratic Congress. Reagan didn't "give them amnesty." And it was part of another in a never ending stream of "deals" whereby the Democrats promise to do X if the Republicans will just do this one little thing. And then the Dems never follow through with their end of the bargain.

Your second statement is flat false. Cite the Executive Order or law that "stopped deportations" under Bush.

You'd be correct, based on the article. You don't "got it."

Besides if Reagan gave them amnesty, they're not be definition illegal immigrants.

The issue is enforcement of existing law. If you could explain why it's acceptable for ICE to be demonized for trying to enforce the law, and being told not to enforce it...? Thanks!

How about we deport the illegals, you know, actually enforcing the law? Oh wait, progressives are against deporting their voting base....

Bad policy from one politician doesn't justify bad policy from another politician.

Yep. Let's make everything so much easier for illegals to stay in this country. Really cleaning up the mess.

How's the whole debt reduction coming?

Well I already know you're not capable of not being an idiot. All you progressives have are empty rhetoric to support violating the rule of law.

NO ONE said they are here because of your messiah. You are about as adept at slaying strawmen as he is. What we are saying is that HIS ADMINISTRATION is providing illegal aliens with plenty of incentives to come here (and to stay here) and is being very selective in which laws it enforces. Your obtuseness is not cute, nor does it prove any point other than what a moron you are.

Yesterday during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council 118 of the American Federation of Government Employees President Chris Crane testified that immigration reform isn't about reform at all, but instead is about politics.

"Death or serious injury to ICE officers and agents appears more acceptable to ICE, DHS, and Administration leadership, than the public complaints that would be lodged by special interest groups representing illegal aliens," Crane said.

Crane detailed the massive problems within the agency with enforcement, how illegal aliens lie to work the system, how illegal aliens will...
