    Hey, HS what is wrong with saying No. We should have had politicians who knew how to say no for the past 50 years. We should have said No the last time amnesty was granted. We should have said No to the boondoggle of the War on Poverty. We should have said No to the mass of confusion called Obamacare. No is not a bad work. We should continue to say NO to everything that is not in scope of what the Federal Government should be in involved in.

    The party of NO will make sure anything gets done, insuring the status quo will remain in place. They remind me of the story of the man who came to the fork in the road, but instead of taking the path less traveled, they've sat down and spent the rest of their time debating with themself on which way they should go.

    It is amazing how the Senate can spell AMNESTY so many different ways. In short these Senators are again blowing smoke up our pantlegs. The two who are pictured above immediatly cause suspect. Pay close attention as this is a con job.This is amnesty pure and simple. Sen. Sessions has summed it up perfectly. I am amazed the these Senators think that they can continually blow this kind of smoke and think we will beleive them.

    Can you imagine people moving into your house, and using your things. Soon, you're out of money, and can't support them.

    This is what illegal immigration is doing to our country, and our leaders are confused on how to handle it.

    How do other countries handle illegal immigration?

    I'm disappointed that there was no coverage of the press conference expressing the opposite point of view on this issue.
    Across Capitol Hill at a press conference that began 15 minutes earlier held by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), and Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) to oppose the bill, several members of the law enforcement community expressed their dissatisfaction with the Gang of Eight bill.

    Rubio understands the problem, and has solid, workable solutions. However, with Schumer and McCain involved I an sure that The good points will be watered down, evaded, weasel worded, or easy for bureaucrats to ignore.

    A bill of this size deserves lots of time to review and debate, with opportunities for amendment.

    In the end, I suspect that the left will ONLY accept a bill that gives amnesty, and that any border security improvements will never take place. In that case, the bill must be defeated.

    The only solution to our immigration problem is a simple one. Demand that criminals obey our laws and return home and come here legally. Prosecute those who do not. No amnesty.
