I think we should put a stop to ALL immigration until the economy fully recovers. There aren't enough jobs to go around the way it is.

"planning a vote next week on immigration legislation hese are not the ones who are causing issues. these are the ones who are legally seeking entry into the US. It's the ones who sneek across the border in inflat our welfare roles who are causing the issues. Let's address that also.

Hmm, let me think about this. 50% of CITIZENS in the country already receive a check every month from the government. Some of it has been earned, Social Security benefits, Medicare, etc., but much of it is welfare transfer payments. Obsma care adds two trullion dollars to the cost of healthcare over ten tears, and that will be all in the form of dficit spending. There are about 25 mullion illegals in the country right now, using up scarce resources in government services, schools, and healthcare. Now these clowns in the House propose to bring the illegals families families in on top of it.. Four more peole per illegal at a minimum. !00 million of the least educated and capable people flooding in here from the third world and not assimilating.Tghird World countries are hellish for a reason. Why bring that reason in to this country?

Why don't we spend more money educating our own students in the areas of science and technology? That way when the graduate the can get jobs instead of standing in line to get food stamps. I hate to say it, we need to take care of our own people first before we take care of new ones.

chickfila 'I think we should put a stop to ALL immigration until the economy fully recovers. There aren't enough jobs to go around the way it is" Good Idea! Then the Tech companies could move THEIR HQ's overseas like Exxon, GE and Apple Computer have, pay lower taxes and use 100% foreign workers all thanks to No Child Left Behind and the Republican effort to dumb down the American populace so they'd buy the GOP propaganda

How about Democrats leaders'decades long snow job of stupid Democrats who really believe Democrat leaders like Obama care about them? That's the biggest insult to Americans in the last century. As long as the welfare checks keep coming they're voting for Dems as our country goes over the cliff! And the hilarious part about it, is its all rhetoric. Hispanics, wake up! Democrats have been filling you full of BS for years and have done nothing for you. Obama talked Dream Act in 2008 and you voted overwhelmingly for him. He did nothing. Then he brought to light this election and you fell for it again. And Blacks. How's life? Did it get better during Obama's first 4 years? Nope. Don't vote for a guy just because of his race. Think about our country! And JC - what "Tech companies" are hiring Hispanics? Other than to clean? Constant ignorance! You keep regurgitating the same ole liberal propaganda. I guess until ethnicities realize Dems aren't helping them at all, the liberal rhetoric is working for you. Too bad its all fiction!

Timan " I hate to say it, we need to take care of our own people first before we take care of new ones." ------ nothing to regret. We should all take care our our families first, then community, state, country. If ther is any LEFT OVER we can help non- citizens within our borders and outside our borders.
