The immigration bill passed by the Senate Thursday afternoon would give some employers a financial incentive to employ "registered provisional immigrants" (illegal immigrants granted legal status) instead of U.S. citizens."

a blurred line and progressive brain funk deciding issues for the operation of America has the elected and appointed deciding for the American people .The people and the nation are different. When you hear the people want it, that means the room full of folks voting.

the military has turned many lawbreakers around through the years.bootcamp will deter many of these people.until company owners[which i'm sure are obama supporters]are held accountable with jail time for tax fraud[most mexicans are paid under the table]this will should be against the law for political candidates to lie during their campaign election none will be trusted.

Require all signage and spoken language in first 50 miles USA be in Spanish. Illegals will think they accidentally crossed back into Mexico and head the other way.

pay the officials south of the border 25 million $ yearly if no illegals are detected entering from the south. Charge them $2K for each illegal caught north of the border. Money talks.

when individuals don't fir the cookie mold ,mobs riot to get individuals fired or demoted, even dropped by corporate sponsors. Get rid of so and so or we won't buy your products. Americans can simply boycott business that knowingly employ illegals. that simple.

fines and jail time for all employers hiring illegals. Problem solved.

Pass a law which says that any illegal caught working, directly or indirectly, for any company, will result in immediate, no appeal fines of $250,000 per illegal plus 90 days per illegal jail time for the company owner or the manager who hired them.

End ALL benefits to illegals. No ER visits, school, food stamps, welfare, housing, bilingual education, etc.

Once you have cut off their employment and their benefits, many will slink back to May He Coe naturally.

The rest can be put on an old ship and sent out to sea, where they will become part of the newest coral reef.

Building a fence is the height of stupidity!!!

There will NEVER be a fence than can't be climbed, cut or tunneled under!!!!

The ONLY fix is to ARREST any and all the scum bags that HIRE Mexicans!!!!


It's a FELONY!!!!!!

The very DAY these arrests begin, these 11 million roaches will begin to crawl BACK across the border where they came from!!!

Take a look at the local motels and at any of these pipeliner camps!!!!

They are FULL of Mexicans!!!!!

These companies need to be FORCED to produce proof that these Mexicans are here LEGALLY and if not, then ARREST the ones that hired them!!!!

Huge mistake unless there is some type of revocable clause that would negate this passage if the Feds. do not secure the boarder as said. My position is delay this until after the 2014 elections.

Lobbyists for resorts, au pair agencies, and the seafood industry successfully slipped special-interest perks into the Senate immigration bill, reports USA Today. And Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) successfully fought to include in the bill a $1.5 billion taxpayer-funded set aside for youth jobs programs.

The revelations are just the latest in what is shaping up to be a pork-laden immigration bill, says Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).

“You're left with a bill that's chockfull of de facto earmarks, pork-barrel spending and special interest sweeteners, a bill that increase the on-budget deficit, but fails to guarantee a border that's secure and offers only promises, which historically Congress has been very, very, very, very bad about keeping,” said Cornyn on Wednesday.

More Demoncrat BS!

Securing the border is rather simple. Place cortina wire to the depth of 20 feet the entire length of the border, and then 20 feet back from that place computerized machine guns that fire when the wire is touched. The firing pattern of the machine guns would be overlapping thus not permitting blind spots. An agreement with Mexico would allow supervised body retrieval once a week.

In 2005, under Bush Bush Bush the average border agent apprehended 120 illegals per year.

Today under Nobama the average is 19 per year.

Obama: FAIL!
