"My father was deported when I was a freshman in college" --- Maybe he should have entered the country legally...

When the borders are secured? What does that mean? Do we have the FBI check on all those who have overstayed their visas? What happens when a guest worker doesn't go home one night? Who determines whether our "borders" are secure? Sounds so easy but we can't afford to put fences around the whole US. Maybe they should put 20 foot high fences around Florida, Texas, East and West Coasts on the beaches. Are the borders than secure? You have now locked yourself in! Feel happy!

My problem with the immigration issue is that some people decide to just come here without papers while others, who also want to come, don't have the proximity to our border, and therefore they don't have the same opportunity. I have friends in the Caribbean who can't even get a VISA, probably because we have so many here already who have jumped the line, thereby blocking others from having an equal chance. Somehow it doesn't seem fair to me.

We should not be rewarding these law breakers, these crimals with amnesty, with legal status and/or citizenship. It would be wrong. Under current law they should all be deported. Let US enforce the law. Mr. Obama and Congress this is wrong.

Tougher laws for businesses that employ illegals? We already have them but nobody wants to enforce them. Also, if all of a sudden 11 million are granted a "pathway to citizenship" we all of a sudden don't have any illegals. Secure the borders, again, nothing will be done and when others see the "prize" of a "pathway to citizenship" we'll have another 11 million illegals here in no time.

As the kids say Epic Fail. Until the borders are secured and we end the farce of birthright citizenship there should be no path to citizenship for illegal aliens or we will be in the same mess we are in now.
