Remove the "expectation" of entering a country without permission and the problem goes away.
It's time to use the "Stick" for Illegal entry into our country. Stop them "At the Border".
We don't allow people to cut in line at a movie, at a concert, or in line at a grocery store, why do we allow people to cut in front of law-abiding people seeking immigration into the USA? The lawful should be first in line. The rest need to go back home and get in line. It will be less expensive in the long run and you'll have peace of mind and be true to your values of being a "Law-Abiding Person with Honor and Integrity".

The tea party is obstructing everything too much all the time.

There we go again, Californians, telling us what we should be doing. How did that open door policy work for them. They are broke. I am with Sheriff Joe, put the Army on the border and defend this country like they are supposed to do.

We have been trying to get my daughter-in-law back into the country from Japan (peaceful ally with NO drug or human trafficking problems). They went to Japan to work when my son lost his job here and when he was able to come back for another job 15 months ago they told her she had to go back to the back of the line. It's now been 15 months. Supposedly her new Visa was approved in January but still nothing. Her 4 children are here with my son who is forced to be single dad and they are without their mother. She has a valid green card with last renewal good until 2017 but SHE CAN'T GET BACK IN. They own a house in Utah, she came legally in 1994 and they work for everything. My son took seriously his commitment to make sure she would never drain the welfare system so rather than living off unemployment and welfare when he lost his job, he went where he could find work. Apparently you can't leave this country with a "permanent resident" (green) card for more than 6 months. What is wrong with this picture? Nobody cares about them.

Being objective is a form of freedom of speech. Why is my original letter not published????
