Best comment on illegal immigration. Vernon Briggs, a Cornell University labor economics professor: "The toleration of illegal immigration undermines all of our labor; it rips at the social fabric. It's a race to the bottom. The one who plays by the rules is penalized... a guest worker program guarantees wages will never go up, and there is no way American citizens can compete with guest workers."

Obama has given waivers for students brought here as children, and refused to right their status at 18.

He has given waivers to immediate family members. The false compassion part of the argument has been covered.

Now show the American people that you will deport those left here. Otherwise why should they believe you. You have failed to do that for 25 years.

More enforcement is not needed at the border, it's needed inside the country. E-verify and lost business licenses for those who break the law, and honest government officials that follow the law.
