    In Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" one of the principles he preaches for socialism to succeed is to "overwhelm the system!" And that is what is happening in this country right now unless we stop it at the ballot box!

    To save alot of money, give each immigrant sixty thousand dollars each to go home.

    That's less then what he's asking Congress for, and I'm sure it would work.

    We're a nation of wealth.

    The news reported that 194,000 came through one border patrol area this year. I am beginning to think that the children are a diversion to the flood of adults coming here for amnesty.

    Some thoughts:

    * our country will soon look like Mexico with corrupt leaders.
    * during his term, Obama will double the debt, and amount of people in poverty.
    * gas prices have doubled in the past six years
    * health costs will increase during the Obama years, and American education will weaken.
    * half or more of our people will require government assistance to survive.
    * our political leaders do not tell the truth, and will not defend the country.
    * some people will still blame George Bush

    It's not rocket science. Simply quit giving them what they want and they will quit coming. Why does that seem to be so difficult for politicians to understand?

    Instead of immediately taking them to a processing center, they should immediately send them on their way back to their home countries. Word would get out very quickly that paying human smugglers is a waste of hard-earned money and the surge would almost immediately quit. Everything is driven by money and results. Quit giving them the results they want and the will quit paying money to come.

    These people are impoverished with no education, no skills and most don't even speak English. They are guaranteed welfare cases for double digit years... if not for generations. We can't afford to become the welfare capital of the world. We are already nearly $18,000,000,000,000 in debt thanks to Obama.

    If people are misusing our current immigration laws. Strengthen them ASAP. Force Obama to finally do his job and secure the border once and for all (as he promised) so we have a sovereign nation as called out in the Constitution. IT'S THE LAW!

    If Obama doesn't deport these families, the problem worsens.
    Releasing them into the USA will only encourage more to come here.
    This one belongs to Obama and no one else.

    Protect families, protect the border.

    By allowing people to illegally immigrate we're encouraging the disintegration of thousands of families a year. Lets support families and stop illegal immigratoin

    Our country is transforming into what Mexico is now.
