My thinking is that Evangelical ministers the leaders do not necessarily represent the members views. That in my opinion is not rare in Protestant or even Catholic denominations. Somehow we have to do something about immigration. If they are going to be here let's have them pay taxes and fees, etc. A strong border is a must. I am not happy if a suitcase nuke enters and is set off somewhere. In the meantime we need an adult at the head of the country. I hope we get one in 2016 who is pro free enterprise

I'm very liberal and not white and I want the laws we actually have enforced. Amazing how those who don't do the same jobs are in favor of another amnesty.

Many of you need to review the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints concept of families. A Bishop and a Stake President never asks if a person is legal or illegal as far as citizenship is concerned. They ask pertinent questions pertaining to the individuals worthiness pertaining to callings and temple attendance. How the individual answers is strickly up to the individual. I really would like to see how some of you can honestly come up with a way to round up the 11-12 million illegal aliens in this nation and send them back to where they came from. How you plan to make our borders which are extensive safer and impregnible. It is impossible. So the answer is to do things in a compassioniante and loving way. Sure Arizona's law was probably too strong but it was what was needed in that state. Obama took it upon himself to ridicule it because it didn't agree with his idealogy at all. He has no more compassion for the illegal alien than he has for the legal alien.

The LDS Church and many church leaders of others sects are showing the compassion and love needed.

The sole motivation of this Administration is clearly to curry favor with the Latino vote. After all the Latino vote secured his re-election. BO has little regard for anything remotely to do with economic reason.
