In the past, the president has done a decent job dealing with illegals. This has all appeared to change. To punish Arizona for taking the initiative to defend their own state when the feds refused, Obama has decided to no longer to respond to needs of Arizona. He has decided to open the flood gates. He has told the world that Arizona is wide open. Fair game for invasion. If you make to Arizona, you are safe. You will not be deported.

On the other hand, if you attempt to go through the legal process of immigrating to the U.S. you are in for one major hassle. It may take years and cost you mucho dinero if you get accepted at all.

So it is official. Obama is giving preferential treatment to those who sneak in. He has pretty much raised the middle finger to those who want to respect our laws.

So what to do now? He is encouraging people to risk their lives to get to the U.S. To get here they must endure banditos, coyotes, extreme heat, lack of food or water, rapists, muggers and other low lifes. They are forced to run a gauntlet of misery to get here. How inhumane for the government to encourage people to risk their lives in this way. This is unacceptable. If we are going to continue to encourage people to violate our borders we need to make it safe for them. In the interest of safety, we need to start providing busses for those people. How can we sit by and let this misery continue when we can simply bus them in? This madness must be stopped!

Dont confuse rhetoric with actual actions......

People always do that when dealing with obama.

Obama has in fact deported more people than did bush.

His statement is just that - a statement that can be changed at any point he wishes..... Or simply ignored as needed.

For example - Lets remember obamas medical marijuana rhetoric and actions are far apart -

Since when in our history has the United States become a communistic country that puts up barb wire fences and gives the middle finger to all outsiders. We are not a prison, we are the land of the free and home of the brave. Our country had always been open to the world. Now we seem to have become a paranoid bunch of chicken shits. "Keep the illegals out or they'll steal our jobs!" How come the free market is so good at determining a great economy when it comes to "money" but fails so miserably at determining a great economy when it comes to "labor". Shouldn't the market decide the best candidate for jobs regardless of who they are or where they came from? I have no problem competing for work with other Americans or Mexicans or Canadians or Russians for that matter. I think this whole issue is more about having too many brown skinned, foreign speaking people infiltrating our neighborhoods than it is about legalities.

Republicans Admit to Accepting Bribes, Why Aren't They In Jail?

The whole Roy Moore thing in a way really highlights in my mind how committed the Republicans are to sucking up to the very, very wealthy base. I've been referring to them for a long time as the owners of the Republican Party, but they're also the ones that keep the Republican Party in power. They're also the supporters of the Republican Party.
