Outrageous!! They broke the law not once, but twice and now they are being allowed to stay in the US!! Our country is really losing it's sovereignty as long as these liberals are in control. We are doomed if amnesty passes that's all I can say. 

 

What is wrong with LEGAL immigration?? Why can't these people follow the law?? Why can't this administration enforce the law?? That is one of the main jobs of the President and his administration is to enforce the laws!! 

 

It took one of my uncles over 10yrs to become a legal resident after my mom sponsored him for citizenship. Why can't these people do that?? And during such hard economic times with so many Americans out of work why are we even opening our borders up to more people when we can't even provide jobs to the people that are here legally!!?? 

 

You can't expect to trust people who disrespect our laws. If they won't respect our laws to come here what makes anyone think they will respect any of our laws??!! 

 

GRRR!!
