    Our immigration system is not, NOT broken. Our laws basically say, if you come here without permission, you're illegal... an illegal immigrant.

    Our laws also say that illegal immigrants are not to receive any benefits including free education, free healthcare, and jobs. And that employers who hire them are to be heavily punished.

    In 1986 President Reagan (via Simpson-Mazzoli) gave amnesty to about 1.5 million illegal immigrants promising to secure our borders to end illegal entry. What happened? The borders were not secured. Furthermore, millions came and overstayed their visas. Now illegals have grown to 11 to 20 million seeking amnesty. And our stupid politicians are working to accommodate them.

    Can't they see that providing amnesty will just encourage more to come illegally by the millions until we are completely overrun by illegals from the south?

    And what about the consequences? Most illegals seeking amnesty are uneducated/poor and will likely get subsidies to pay for Obamacare. Which will cause our national debt to soar outa sight. Furthermore, illegals will be gobbling up Americans' jobs which will cause our unemployment to soar as well.

    We are just plain nuts.

    La Raza (NCLR) received over $30 MILLION in government grants in the last reporting year (2011).
    That's 66% of their entire budget.
    We complain about NPR and Planned Parenthood but La Raza puts them to shame.
    Obama owes his political fortunes to the SEIU and other union backers.
    So, why aren't media outlets calling them out on their biased agendas?
    The Chamber seeks to preserve this fountain of cheap labor that keeps costs and benefits DOWN for our own minority citizens.
    This push for amnesty is NOT in the best interest of America.
