Illegal means illegal. I don't get the rest of the arguement after the first action was illegal. If these immigrants want to make things better, then return to your country of origin and fix up your own country. Many generations of people have worked to make the US what it is today. You think that you are privledged to waltz in here and take advantage of what we have built ( the infrastructure ). You illegals are rude, self centered people who belive you are above the law.

It seems the obamanation in charge can't find enough ways to spend the money fast enough. This time it's paying back his illegal supporters. This guy will have this country in bankruptcy within the year.

We are a country of immigrates. Always has been this way, always will. It's why we are the greatest country this planet has ever known, and will continue to be for many generations to come.

I knew some illegal immigrants. They were not selfish...in fact the contrary. One man was working 15 hours a day so he could send money to his family and his sisters family (her husband had died). He would have stayed in Mexico, but could not find a job. Another woman I met came to America after her husband was killed by the drug lords (that ship drugs to their American customers). She could not get a job in Mexico because people feared she would bring the killings to them.

Saying Mexicans should stay in their own country and work to make it better is a kin to saying Jews should have stayed in Germany and tried to make it better in the 1930s instead of fleeing to other countries. They simply want to work and provide a better life for their family.

Dgbrong...I agree with you. Anyone that came to this country after 1776 should be deported ..and so should their descendants. The English built the infrastructure and system of government and dirty swedes, Norwegians, Germans and Irish think they can waltz in here and just take advantage of our free schooling and roads. How selfish.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."........ Barrack H Obama March 2006

We need to fix our open borders first, then figure out if some sort of amnesty should be granted. Obama is doing this backwards.

Well if Obama doesn't get his way he can just write an executive order again.

Of course he pushes this. They need to continue to sign up more Democrats to stay in power. I give you and you vote for us. That's also why we have an annual deficit of $1 trillion. No one likes the party of no. Keeping illegals out and balancing a budget is so yesterday.
