What about all those people from other countries that want a life here? They do not live in a border country thus they have to immigrate here legally. Do you want us to give you special treatment simply because you come from a border country? Someone please explain to all of us what sense that makes.

Well, that's wonderful but elsewhere in today's Strib there is an article about the loss of our prairie thanks to over population. I am not in favor of immigration because our population size is already too large.

Regardless of the merits of letting illegals say here, just the fact that it was arbitrarily decided by one individual is a very slippery slope.

They are NOT immigrants. They are here illegally regardless what our dictator-in-chief would like to say. What he did was not legal and will be reversed.

Illegal means criminal, lawbreaker, wrongdoer etc....... Lets stop rewarding this criminal behavior. And if we do not stop it soon, the illegals will be running this country.

Vote for Romney and he will put an end to it, maybe. I think Romney would be better than Obama on our illegal alien problem. There are an estimated 50 million illegal aliens in our country now, and who knows how many of them are terrorists??!! Our massive legal immigration policy encourages the illegals to come too. So, we need to curb legal immigration to curb illegal immigration.

Why do they stop here? The economy in Canada is so much better than ours? I guess maybe one party enjoys their votes regardless of the cost to our nation?
