    I know one thing that really needs to be done and that is repeal The Refugee Resettlement Act. One of the reasons is the fact that hundreds of these people from Africa and the Middle East are making their way to Mexico and heading for the US border claiming refugee status and DHS is busing them from the border to where ever they take illegals that claim refugee status. The word refugee is the new buzz word to get their foot through the door and you can only guess how may ISIS terrorists are among these people. There is no way any of their back grounds could be checked. This brain dead government is allowing them into the country for the taxpayer to support.

    The fraud President must be stopped and impeached. We must make it clear to the rest of the United Nations we do not and will not put up with their One World Order as we are the nation all aspire to be like and can not continue to exist as the Charity for the world. All you do when you flood the uneducated, unskilled and unsavory is poison the well. The whole system no longer can function and remain as it is if allowed to continue as it is. We will become a destitute nation because we are giving away all we were and have/had to the needy and criminal element. The President must pay for his actions and we will benefit when they walk him to the gallows.

      I agree with Bernard Miller:We have to take our country back. We need to take care of our citizens. We are
      not the police for the world. We are slowly heading in a downward spiral that can only be stopped by ridding
      ourselves of this President who wants us not to remain the super power. He hates America and just wants
      to bankrupt us. He is intrusive and badly misinformed about doing the right thing for the greatest country in
      the world!!!!!!!

    As far as uneducated, unskilled, poverty stricken Third World peasants with nowhere to go but the welfare office, there aren’t millions of them, there are billions and they are all coming for the food larders of America, Europe and Australia.

    Of the 60.000 unaccompanied children from Central America who crashed the fence last summer, only about 485 have ever been deported. The largest nationality currently coming over the southern US border are from China. Black North African muslim migrants are floating boatloads to Italy and Greece hoping to get welfare in Germany and France. Boatloads from Indo-China are invading Malaysia on their way to Australia. The only way to stop them is to starve them out with e-verify or kill them, there is no nice way.

    I am sick and tired of illegals who do most of the crime in L.A.. Our great liberals are out to destroy our citizens and American way of life. Voters in CA get these people out of office, they are the criminals at large.

    This country is being systematically destroyed through the uncontrolled influx of illegal aliens from countries hostile to our way of life. DHS is bussing thousands of Muslim “refugees” into communities who have no idea this is happening. Illegal aliens are killing Americans at a rate higher than the combat fatalities in our current theater of operations. Rapist, child molesters, drunk drivers all all given a pass because of their immigration status. Those illegals deported for criminal activity are usually arrested again and again after finding their way back across our unsecured borders.
    I am sick of the left saying these illegals are just hard working people who want a better life and that most are law abiding; horse feathers! These people are here illegally, hence the term “illegal immigrant”; calling them “undocumented” doesn’t change their status one iota.
    I wish just one Liberal can explain to me how our immigration system is “broken”. Seems to this writer that the only thing broken with our immigration system is enforcement.

      The Liberals [Conservatives too for that matter] Stopped Being Liberals When They Abandoned the Environment

      And pushed for unlimited overpopulation destroying our environment. The Conservatives forsake their rule of law stands.

      Amen. I agree 100%. We citizens are pushed aside when it comes to the laws of the USA. We must abide by ALL laws or fined, arrested, put in jail or prisons. Yet illegals can do what they want in OUR COUNTRY and the government gives them more I which we pay for. There are so many demonstrations and DEMANDS from illegals
      (which they get) and US CITIZENS do not demonstrate or demand a stop to all this. WHY?
      States should also have the right to not allow illegals into their state. Let our government personally pay for these illegals out of their own pocket and lets see how any are left here.

    Illegal is ILLEGAL, should be prosecuted accordingly and NOT rewarded in ANY manner. If even in doubt of the meaning, look up the meaning of the word ILLEGAL
