The problem is simple, if they are here illegally send them back to where they
came from and make them enter this country legally. I believe that is the only
way to handle this problem. No more free passes give them nothing but deport
them back to were they came from. As a Taxpayer I am getting tired of the
illegals getting all the free Food stamps, medical, schooling and what ever they
can and at the expense of the Taxpayers. Anything less will just compound the
illegals in this country, knowing when it get's out of hand they will get the
free pass again. If the President gives in then least vote him out in 2012.
Pure politics and nothing more, this guy is all about self promotion and gaining
political power. Is that the "hope and change" we were all promised?
Where is the new "civility" he called for after the Tucson shootings?
This guy is a farce and a fraud of the worst kind. Anybody but B O in 2012!
It seems that Obama is baiting the GOP here. He can't pass his
"reform" because it makes no sense.But he can create a wedge
here and maybe get some votes. The GOP can either follow the platform (that'd
be a new twist) or cater to the brown vote with an amnesty plan.Amnesty is
a tough sell indeed with 10% unemployment.
Don't you democrats/republicans get it? All the professional politicians are
the one's who put us in this position. They have run most big corporations off
shore due to double and triple taxation of stock holders, taking the jobs with
them, while yelling raise taxes on the rich, when most stock holders are just
trying to make sufficient money to retire before death. At the same time all
politicians need do is 2 years in congress and they are set with full pay and
100% medical for life. They won't fix our medical care system because it
involves getting rid of the lawyers, insurance companies, and pill pushers.
Those are the ones our professional politicians actually get rich serving. If we
had Mexico's system we'd all have "affordable" health care. Campaign
contributions should be limited in amount and limited to legal individuls who
are registered voters for the candidates in the election. Thank God for the
Mexicans, they work, but are hated by the racists who just want to punch a
clock, draw a check. I say open the border, but both ways, equally. DI, don't be
part of the problem. Print this.
I think "mock" is kind of a strong, loaded word here. The GOP can't
afford to be thin-skinned and angry the way the Dems tend to be. Obama was
using hyperbole and humor to make a point, and I happen to agree with it. The
border HAS been strengthened a great deal over the past few years (beginning
under Bush). There are many who will never allow for ANY concession to ANY
illegal immigrant even if there's an impenetrable fence across every inch of the
border. Calling for 100% border security without dealing with the larger
problem -- a huge segment of society in the shadows -- is mostly just a way of
kicking the can down the road.
A ... didn't our great teleprompter king just get through lecturing us a few
weeks ago on how both democrats and republicans need to be more civil and work
together??? Hmmm, interesting how soon the man seems to forget his own advise.
Leaders don't mock others. He is to Chicago for the country. Our
deportations have increased less than 10% since Bush's last year. He is
deporting more, not that much more. When your dealing with millions, 32,000 more
is a small number, especially when he offered sel deportation to convicted
felons to get to part of the increase.
Wow! Our border is safe and the fence is basically done? I've done everything
the republicans wanted. Let's all vote for another four years.
Democrats this and Republicans that. Blah Blah, Blah! Throwing blame around
doesn't fix anything. Both are at fault, and yes, Obama also. There are real
problems out here and nothing is being done about it. Here are some of them:* High gas prices* Over a million jobs gone to other countries.* Huge debt caused by our Federal, State, Cities, School Districts, etc.* High unemployment* Open borders* High cost for weak education* Corrupt leaders* EtcWhen all is said and done,- more was
said than done. Let's fix the problem. If our leaders can't do it, than step
down and let someone else in. A total turnover would be refreshing.
Obama has done FAR more to control immigration than Bush did. Border enforcement
has tripled. Deportations have increased by an order of magnitude.The Republicans deserve all the derision they get on this issue, because
they've done nothing but complain, and when Obama addresses their complaints,
they complain about that!The Republicans propose Cap and Trade in
the 1990s. Complain about Obama proposing it in 2008.The Republicans
propose the individual mandate for health care in the 1990s. Complain about
Obama proposing it in 2008.The Republicans ask for tax cuts. Obama
includes tax cuts as 1/3 of the stimulus. Republicans complain about it.The Republicans ask for more border enforcement. Obama triples the
border patrol. Republicans complain about it.The Republicans say
Obama's soft on terror. Obama sends in the Seals to kill Osama. Republicans
complain about it.The Republicans ask for more deportations. Obama
deports four times as many per year as Bush II did. Republicans complain about
it.Obviously, the Republicans are more concerned about having
something to complain about. They're so opposed to Obama they'll disagree with
themselves in order to avoid agreeing with him.THAT's childish.
This man is not a leader in any sense of the word! He was placed in his
position to uphold constitutional law, not to play stupid cat and mouse games
with the GOP. Our federal government is totally incapable of leading out on
anything rational and honest. It's not that any particular class or party is
incapable of governing; every class and party is incapable of governing. Any
idiot could govern better than these clowns in D.C. by simply upholding
constitutional law, as it is stated. The feds scare me more than any and all
Illegal immigration shouldn't be a criminal issue, it should be an economic
issue. Many illegals are hanging on to our countries coat tail. Medicaid,
Education, Welfare, food stamps... etc. I love the illegal
immigrant, but I dis-like illegal immigration.
Divine Way !!!!Someday in another word perhaps....For now,
lets just have the laws of the United States of America enforced and obeyed. Let
the President lead the way, It is his job and he should tend to it.
The President of the United States needs to rise above the rhetoric and the
mocking. He is crass, snide and arrogant in his behavior. Say that you
disagree, fine, but acting like a child is very un-Presidential.
Obama does busy work to look like he is enforcing laws. Illegal immigration is
up. He doesn't deport enough each year to equal those coming here illegally. All the while talking amnesty. His amnesty of going to the back of the
line, doesn't mean returning home and standing in line. They are rewarded for
their illegal behavior by being allowed to stay here. Most just come for the
jobs, and he is giving it to them. Rewarding mass illegal behavior is going to
cause bigger future problems for this country. It could be stopped now, but the
Hispanic vote is to important to him. He has lost this Democrat.
That's the price he'll pay for catering to one group, and stretching the laws
for their benefits.
Cant say much too much for our relatives are lightskin second cousin dark
skin!Its just all about Family here In UsA (Viva)
"In March 2011, GAO border expert Richard Stana told the committee the
border is indeed out of control, Napolitano's claims regardless."PEW shows illegal immigration increasing. Our borders include
internal enforcement. Obama gives business fines, but turns those here illegally
loose. Show me the wall you built President Obama.
Numerous murders by illegals isn't safe for victims.

4:32 p.m. As compared too? Screaming 'You lie!' at the
president during an address? Claiming healthcare reform is gonna 'kill
grandma?' Asking for a birth certificate 2yrs after the 1st one was
presented in 2008? If you want childish behavior, look no further
than the Republican party. FYI, McCain visited the boarder, any
changes? I didn't think so. Didn't Regan offer AMNESTY
to illegals when he was president? But the problem of illegal immigration just
started 25 months ago? No. This was one snippet of comment from
Obama. About building a moat. After I have given an example of a
GOP canidate asking to put LAND MINES on the boarder. You said
nothing. But I expect nothing less. Republican can
scream at Obama, offer up land mines on the boarder, and conservatives say
nothing. Obama makes a joke about a moat, and suddenly, it's
offensive. Don't let the facts of the matter dissuade you.
screwdriverPerhaps you didn't read my earlier post. I said that Bush and
Obama are no different concerning protecting the US from an invading population
of people from the south. Its not about R's and D's anymore. Its about
enforcing our laws. I listened to the Sheriff of Pima Co. Arizona and he said
they caught 200 plus thousand illegals crossing the border last year. Which, he
said, is about 1/3 of total people comming accross the area he patrols. Sounds
significant to me. sounds like Obama is no different than Bush.Also, High
tech survelance does nothing if you don't have the manpower to enforce the
border. also, also, treason is when you intentionally try to destroy our
country economically to prepare the way for a new way of doing things, a
"fundamental transformation" of our country. Thats treasonous.
It's amazing that Obama thinks he can boldly lie about securing the border and
then expect the Republicans to follow through with an amnesty program.Although congress passed a secure-fence bill a few years ago that called for a
700 mile wall, only a few miles have actually been built.There are
reports that the border patrol political appointees are purposely not arresting
illegals to make it look like the numbers are going down. Although
they have hired thousands of additional BP agents and greatly increased their
salary, many have their hands tied by policies which prevent interior
enforcement. The 30 man crew along the Northwest border made many more arrests
in the 1970s-1980s than the 300 agents there today.Perhaps Obama
should spend his next family vacation camping inside the Buenos Aires National
Wildlife Refuge, which has been closed to the public since 2006 due to the drug
cartels using it as a corridor. Since the border is so secure now, he should
have no hesitation to demonstrating it, right?
How could anyone possibly believe the Pres. on immigration enforcement when he
won't even let Arizona law enforcement do what he and Napolitano REFUSE to do?
BO visited one of the most secure spots along the border. The Secret Service
probably would not allow him to visits parts of the AZ border where the drug
lords are in complete control.I think the line about this being his
FIRST visit since he was elected shows how much he really cares - he's just
looking to court the hispanic vote (many of whom OPPOSE illegal immigration)As for him quoting Murdock, it's typical of the left to lump legal
immigration in with illegal immigration. (BO being the leftist thinking
Murdock's comments about immigration applied to ILLEGAL immigration)
How many of you have read or listened to Obama's speech? If you had you would
realize that his "mocking" was a very small snippit Fox and friends
are blowing out of proportion as sensationalism. Yet it was well deserved
"mocking". It must have stung to be the only part they remember.From his speech today : "One CEO had this to say about reform.
American ingenuity is a product of the openness and diversity of this society
Immigrants have made America great as the world leader in business, science,
higher education and innovation. Thats Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News,
and an immigrant himself. I dont know if youre familiar with his views, but
lets just say he doesnt have an Obama bumper sticker on his car."Have a little integrity and read or watch the speech before criticizing it.
Now that the 2012 campaigning has begun, Obama will become increasingly
divisive, proving once again that his speeches about striving for bipartisanship
were little more than words.
Just when I started to have a little respect for Obama, then he goes and tells
the biggest lie of his career. The border is secured now, so we should start
talking about amnesty for over 12 million mexicans who are sucking our economy
dry... Really? Does he really think anyone will actually believe
such a bold faced lie? Saying that the border is secure, after he calls
American citizens who want the laws enforced as "enemies" to La Raza,
then his administration sues Arizona for trying to enforce their own border
(something he refuses to do). Just how stupid does this guy think Americans
are? And of course, the media would never put cameras on the border to show the
thousands who are still coming here illegally to prove Obama wrong. No way.This "president" absolutely needs to be voted out.
A major reason why our healthcare costs are high and continue to skyrocket is
because our healthcare providers and hospitals are giving services to illigal
immigrants who never pay their bills because they know they can get away with
it. Resolving the illegal immigrant issue would help lower medical costs.Pagan:I agree fully with you that Republicans haven't done
anything regarding this matter. They are just as guilty as the Democrats for
inaction. Thus, I am left pondering why, if the President is really seeking to
solve this incredible dilemma, he would stoop to the childish behavior of his
political colleagues? And why does he visit the border and not offer something
substantial by way of fixing the problem?
Pagan--There you go again. What does Republicans of the past have to do with
fixing the problems of today.I have worked on the border for over
twenty years and I can tell you,---you (sadly) don't know what your'e talking
about. Your sarcasm of headless bodies show your ignorance.
"We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans
who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about
enforcement," Obama said. "But even though we've answered these
concerns, I gotta say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying
to move the goal posts on us one more time."Obama nailed it with this
statement and it explains exactly what the republicans and the above posters or
Foxettes have been doing all along. But it's rich to see so many of you,
who mock and have mocked Obama's entire presidency, complain that he's childish
for throwing a snowball at the republicans avalanche of mockery and silly
accusations.Childish is the republican parties, Say No, and do nothing
approach to solving this nations problems, many of which didn't begin with his
presidency. Apparently many of you have no recollection of anytime before 2008.
I'll be right back. Just gonna put some air in my tires to my car will get
better gas mileage.
KM, you might want to look up some facts first before saying "Obama has
done nothing to decrease illigal immigration". You really
should listen to the speech. He call R's out for saying exactly what you did
while he has actually DOUBLED the number of border troops, sent drones and
other high tech surveilance means and has secured the border better than it ever
has been.He's calling R's out for contantly "moving the goal
posts" of what they think will solve the problem because even though he
implements THIER ideas they keep up the rhetoric that he isn't doing anything.
That's just anti-american politics to take down the duly elected potus. That's
treasonous.Obama is spot on. R's deserve to be mocked for thier
Have your fun and get your laughs repubs, but the fact remains that the
past(2000-2008)is history and you cannot change it no matter what you say or do!
And you want us voters to do what? Elect another pro-business president, what a
joke! Just where would this country be if McDuff(McCain) and sweet Sarah were in
office now? You people are unbeivable.
Just when a few people were starting to like him. He always manages to blow it.
Only people who are concerned about 11 million illegal immigrants draining our
social system of every dime would want to do something about the border.Why would a tax-and-spend liberal like Obama be concerned?
"nearing completion of a border fence"When did he build a border
fence, he stopped it. The Republicans asked for 6,000 troops, he
sent 1200 that are scheduled to be removed in June or July.
I guess this is the "new way forward" that he promised us. No wonder
nothing is getting accomplished in Washington. The president is too busy raising
money for himself, trying to make illegals feel good about themselves again, and
trying to win over the latino population that he has alienated by his
inaction.He should try telling the illegals another line that he's
going to accomplish fixing the broken immigration system before the end of the
first term and not push it off until the next election cycle. Oh wait a minute
he has pushed it off.But that gives him a talking point. No to just
give the illegals amnesty and then they can vote for him.I wonder
about families who have lost love ones to illegals. I wonder if they're laughing
with the president who has failed to protect the border.NOBAMA2012
Mocking those who think laws should be enforced.What a great
president we have.
Did Obama really say that? Our commander and chief sounds like a 5th grader.
President, please act your age and your office. I can understand saying that in
private but in public? Where is Biden anyways? I could count on
him for truly funny quotes. Please release the gag order on our vice president.

Bodies' - By Ben Frumin - Talking Points Memo I will concede that
immigration is a problem, so I will ask again: WHAT have Republicans
done about immigration before this point? I mean BESIDES offer
amnesty during the Regan administration? Can't remember anything
from the last 10yrs? That's right, Obama 'has to solve the problem'
in 2yrs. It is estimated that there are 12 million illegal
immigrants in America today. Compare to the US military which runs, what? 3-4
million, and I want to know what Republicans are going to do when the military
is outnumbered 4-to-1, against. And what about the teleprompter?
Every president for the last 30 years has used one. Not Sarah Palin
though! She reads off of her hand.
Obama mocks the American people when he does absolutely nothing to stop the
total migration of people comming accross the southern border. When Obama
says we need comprehensive immigration reform, what he means is we need amnesty.
He is no different than Bush on this matter. They both know that the scale has
tipped and if you don't play ball with the illegal population in the US, then
you loose your ability to be elected and re-elected. And don't tell me illegals
don't vote. Acorn and community organizers have ways of dealing with this

this mess.3. The Republicans won't let me do anything.4. Fox news

This latest ridicule of Obama's against the Republicans and other politicians,
tells me he's in it for the laughs, not for genuine concern over what is really
going on with our country.Does ANYONE out there really care about
the American people overall anymore???
Way to unify, Mr. President. Tease and mock the other side. That type of
behavior should be beneath you. How about unfreezing the funding for
the border fence? Allowing the BP to use real bullets? The border we have is a
farce and the Mexicans and radical Islam terrorists know it. Stop suing Arizona
for trying to tackle this huge problem on their own, and start listening to the
people of southern Texas and southern AZ, some of whom have bullets whizzing
past their doors and sleep with guns to protect themselves against the Mexican
druglords. Saying it's fixed doesn't mean it really is.
I don't know what Obama is thinking but:There are entire regions of
Arizona under control of drug lords.An Arizona Sheriff has a price on his
head.When Arizona complained about violence from illegal aliens, the Obama
administration posted "keep out" signs.That is not
enforcement.Saying we have better border security than ever does not make
it true.Obama is doing this for two reasons:1. His approval
rating among Hispanics has dropped dramatically.2. The Democrats need more
votes and view illegal aliens as a good source of those votes. (Yeah, I know.
It is illegal for illegal aliens to vote but why is it illegal to ask people if
they are citizens when they register to vote under "Motor Voter"?)I just want to know. Did Obama use a teleprompter when he make his

Now, an illegal immigrant cannot admit it, for fear of punishment. He cannot
leave for fear he cannot get back if he wants to. He is separated from his
family and wants to help them, so he can only send them money so they buy where
they are. That is not to our benefit. The immigrants could also stay in their
country and live the garden paradise lifestyle there. It will work throughout
the world and end immigration problems.Because we have an anti-God
employment system and welfare programs, the immigration issue cannot be solved
with satisfaction for all. We cannot reward breaking the law We
cannot deny them medical and welfare; that would make us murderers and cold
hearted people. We cannot allow them to be citizens to vote since their
main allegiance is to their country.Our employment lifestyle is
destroying the world; for our protection we need to turn to a garden paradise
lifestyle. God warned against our debt, interest, insurance (surety),
covetousness, and seeking riches and honor; so we must turn to God's truth for
our own good.
God's law is not to oppress the stranger among you. We could open our borders,
not close them. That allows the illegal immigrants the chance to go home and
know the men can come again to work for a short time, get money, buy goods from
America and take them back to their family in their country. That gives us the
benefit without extraordinary expense. With a garden paradise
lifestyle instead of employment lifestyle, we would have no need for entitlement
or welfare programs. Most things would be done through our loving citizens who
would be helped. We benefit in the low cost of our foods because migrant
workers can live on lower wages than citizens who have a house, car, and college
