    Exactly how many poor, illiterate and sometimes violent illegals does America need to pay for? While scientists, engineers, doctors are waiting years to come here legally.

    The Republicans aren't the only ones making (illegal) immigration a political issue; so are the Democrats, the mainstream media, and the American people. The "caravan" is always on the news, and there are so many assumptions on how to deal with them and their impact on our economy. We have enough poverty stricken citizens, we don't need to import more. We should help them remove their socialist politicians and restore order in their own country so they can proposer there. But that may be hard to do since we also have a growing number of (Democrat) socialists infiltrating our government as well.

    I stayed together with my family. We were born in the United States of America and we just stayed there. Why don't people keep the families together in their country of origin if they cannot immigrate legally? They are choosing to separate their own families rather than go back home together.

    Democrats want open borders... for voters.... see, I made a rhyme.... Democrats and liberals generally look at the constitution as a roadblock to their agenda of suppressing opposition to their progressive agenda. Now, progress isn’t a bad thing... but what the Democrats want is to enforce this idea on people. Our constitution supports individual Americans, it’s design is to empower individuals to make their own way. Look at the preamble, the only entitlement is potential; find your own happiness. So, Immigration, it’s a hot mess. We do have laws on the books that specifically state if you commit a crime and you involve your family, the criminals will be separated from their children as they are a potential threat to the wellbeing of minors. These people crossing the border are putting their kids at high risk by exposing them to harsh environmental conditions without proper support or clothing. These people trying to get here are escaping the boiling toilets of diarrhoea called Central America and South America, and are willing to risk just about anything to get here. Ok, so how do we allow them refugee status and prevent mass migration and chain migration? This is a nation of immigrants; the unwanted families and criminals from Europe, slaves from Africa, and Ice Age Siberian and Central Asian nomads. I think the laws we have are fine, we need more border patrol agents on the US and Mexico border, more trained people to process them and to evaluate them. Family units need to be evaluated separately but kept in a certain proximity to prevent the mess that has been going on. Liberals are never going to be satisfied with any limitations on immigration or policy reforms that are more restrictive and better enforced with proper man power.

    People that come here legally don't have to worry about birthright citizenship. The 14th amendment was never meant to protect illegals, visitors, or diplomats and their families. It was meant to protect emancipated black slaves. I find it disgraceful that people would hyjack something so important in our history and try to use it to protect illegals.

  • Katye Dixon

    I don't care what you say, we have a policy in place and it's the law of this country. Any one who wants to circumvent this policy is dead wrong. I am truly sorry that the people coming from these devasting and dangerous countries, are seeking political and social asylum, but this is not the way. To bombard the citizens of the United States and try and make us take these people because their country is in a disarray! Separating families? What? If the Dem's and these Liberals do not wake up and realize this matter is far greater than the 'separation of families, feeding people and providing economic/educational avenues for illegal immigrants. We are still at war people!! Those who hate American people and American soil, are still plotting and planning on ways to enter into this country and bring Americans to their knees.
    We need better boarder security, better vetting systems in place and we all need to slow this movement to have everyone who feels they can come into this country, by marching for their cause, is unacceptable. So, you're going to open the door to an uninvited guest? Please, I am sick and tired of hearing the Dem's, Liberals and Progressives discuss these poor people, when we have starving people right here in this country. When we have people who are receiving sub-par education, schools falling apart and unhealthy for students to be in. When we have the middle class, working two and three jobs to support their families, when we have legal matters within the judicial processes, many Black men and women have died at the hands of officers who claimed they were , afraid for their lives. We have housing shortages, where people cannot afford the rents for these wealthy landlords, we have discrimination on jobs where people of color are being denied employment because they are Black, White, Latino, Asian and then some. We have a homelessness problem that is extremely out of control and we have more than our share of unwanted gang violence throughout the United States.
    So, tell me again, who should be declaring social and political asylum? We are grateful to live in this great nation, but what I will not stand for and anyone who supports this, is people entering into this country, without following the laws which govern our immigration system. It may not be the greatest, but it's what we have and it should be respected. I do not have any empathy for people who drag their children all over this country, to garnish pity, instead of fighting for a cause in their own homeland, you bring your cause to America. I'm not sure how welcomed these people will be, as everything that is here, I'm sure will be offered and taken. Once they are here, now what?
    More tax payers build more schools? hire more teachers who speak their language? Food, clothing, shelter, find employment? These issues sure do sound familiar!! If the Dem's, Liberals and Progressive's do not understand this by 2020, they may pay a high cost, because, there are more Conservative Dem's , Liberals and Progressives, out here than they know. Those individuals could be the deciding factor in 2020, this is a hot topic and it's not about being a racist, prejudice, it's about following the law. We have constantly fought this battle for years with Mexicans entering into this country illegally, living off the freedom's of this country, some committing crimes and going back to Mexico, then returning via California and starting all over again. This cycle has been going on for years and it's time to stop. California is broke, from the excessive medical care for the illegal immigrants who couldn't are wouldn't pay anything for their care. American's have had to endure their identities being stolen,dead family members using their social security numbers to get housing, jobs, credit cards. This is not fake, it's a fact! It's time to tell make some changes in the way our immigration policy is and protect our borders.
    Everyone is welcome, but come in with respect for this great nation and not like you own it and you have contributed to the growth and productivity over the past 1k years!. Yes, this great country was built on the foundation of multicultural people from many nations, countries and continent, many force to come and many fleeing for political asylum. Many and I mean many, fought and died for this country, left their marks on this country and vowed to stand and protect this country. Many and I mean many, followed the immigration policy and became American citizens, and that's all I am asking, stop making things so easy for those who really just want the 'freedoms' without having to contribute anything!!

It’s a post 9/11 & Democrats are for putting illegals first contrasted w Republicans who are about putting Americans first. Vetting bad actors coming into this country in today’s world is a prudent thing, see what recorded rape & assault rates did in Europe when the immigration flood gates were thrown open? Just curious Mr. Horsford, do you lock your doors at night? I thought so!

      Maybe, however, the pilgrims, their descendants & other, early Anglo-Saxon English immigrants, eventually went on to be establish cities & towns, fight the English imperialists, & conceive and create a new nation, that, despite its grave major sins of Native American Genocide & Slavery, evolved & progressed, astonishingly quickly, considering, The country of the U.S.A. is ONLY 242 years old.This country, soon became, by FAR, comparatively, a beacon of freedom, opportunity, and LAWS. This land, to this day, continues to be a Mecca, CLEARLY, as the never-ending immigration issues, continually, demonstrate, and remains a country that MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of impoverished people from mostly corrupt countries WOULD immigrate to, if at ALL possible, although, for OBVIOUS reasons, it would not be possible, for ALL who'd wish to come, to immigrate here to do so, unfortunately. So, while NO person, or peoples, are even close to perfect, nevertheless, that crazy ol' Pilgrim stock WAS good for something, afterall...the proof is in the pudding...
