I wonder if they boodled across for a couple hours to get cheap prescriptions and tequila?

With 20 million adults age 18-64 with low skills (high school diploma or less) and 500,000 teens age 15-17 out of work, one has to wonder why we need to import another 200,000 workers.
Is it an effort to continue to depress wages?
Or is it the old lie that there are jobs Americans won't do?

Solution. All illegals back to their home country, where ever that is. Then, the jobs that supposedly Americans wont do, we let those that are on welfare have a job. Then you are giving a man or woman a "hand UP" instead of a "handout". Everyone wins!

I'm glad they will be putting an emphasis on more border security before doing anything else with immigration reform. But somehow, the idea of ever giving any reward to anyone for doing something illegal, no matter how long ago, that they knew was illegal when they did it, doesn't seem right.

Just because it takes a long time to immigrate legally is not a justifiable reason for skipping the legal process and breaking the law by sneaking over our borders and waiting for the next amnesty package. I'm sure that rewarding those who did so is going to really stick in the craw of those who are currently trying to do it right, under the legal process, even though it takes time and patience.

I also hope they will include something in their new immigration reform bill to ensure that any future illegal aliens will never, under any circumstances, be granted amnesty, and will unquestionably be heavily fined and deported whenever caught, instead of tending to keep giving in every so many years with these new amnesty packages. We need to do so to eliminate any additional motivation to future lawbreakers, and always follow a legal process.

Touring the Mexican border? Illegals?

Someone moves into your house, unpacks, eats your food, uses your stuff, and you debate if it's ok? Our commander in chief is confused on what to do?
