    "...Establishment Republicans could not support their erroneous conclusion(s) with facts because all of the facts rebut their erroneous thesis...".

    Thank you, Steve King REPUBLICAN Rep from Iowa.

    I don't believe it. A politician actually says something about illegal immigration that is true and correct. My hat is off to you Mr. King.

    Many Americans become stumped by the line, "But they were brought here at two years old; this is the only country they've ever known."

    The fact is, so what. These kids -- no matter how old they are today -- should be returning to their home countries, WITH the parents who brought them here. They will not die.

    If we say, "But we must do something for these Dreamer children," guess what: More and more foreign nationals will be ENCOURAGED to illegally traffic their children into this country. It will be evident that Americans do NOT take seriously the sacrifice American soldiers made to defend this nation.

    draw the line where it belongs -- at the law. If you do, foreign nationals will gain a modicum of respect for this nation and its laws. And guess what: they'll stop illegally trafficking their children across international lines -- because we will have sent a message that Americans will NOT by falsely GUILTED into taking responsibility for parents' actions and letting them stay. The children themselves will learn that contrary to what their parents taught them by precept and by example, dishonesty and illegality will not pay.

    NO legalization of illegal aliens!

    Of course Amnesty would destroy the rule of law. Amnesty is nothing less than official refusal to enforce the law, which in turn is a signal that the law means nothing.
