    The immigration system is not broken. The problem is it is not ENFORCED. We have laws in place, but the Obamanation has broken his oath to uphold the laws of this country and will not enforce the immigration laws, hamstringing ICE, rewarding criminal behavior with amnesty, and even inviting the illegals to flood the country so that he can shovel people’s hard earned tax dollars at them. We don’t need to fix the immigration system, we need to fix the slimy politicians from the Obamanation on down that are failing to protect our borders.

    Yes, nothing says “Just like Obama” like destroying the Constitution and acting in a clearly illegal and immoral way. Oh, wait, R’s haven’t done that. Sorry. My bad. Please return to your emperor worshiping postures: drop pants, bend over.

    At 1198 pages with 150 amendments submitted (I didn’t count those actually voted on) and affecting 14 other pieces of legislation the immigration bill is probably beyond being fixed.

    “The immigration system is not broken. The problem is it is not ENFORCED.”

    I agree. It’s maddening to listen to people prattle on about immigration, but are utterly silent when it comes to the companies that knowingly hire illegal immigrants. Said companies should be severely punished. Illegal immigrants cross the boarder to get jobs and send money back to their families. If there are no more jobs for them, they’ll stop crossing the boarder.

    It’s like the failed “War on Drugs.” If you focus on the suppliers (drugs illegal labor, et cetera), a new supply will just pop up elsewhere to fill the demand. If you cut off the demand, the supply will trail off because there’s no money to be made. It’s simple supply and demand. End the demand for illegal immigrant labor, and the supply will drop.

    My right wing neighbors like minded brother lives in San Diego. They want the boarder closed but the brother admits he would miss getting his yard manicured once a week by a crew of three for $15. Cash trumps politics and purchases politicians.

    “California is home to an estimated 2.5 million illegal immigrants, more than in any other state. Perhaps nowhere else captures the contradictions and complications of immigration policy better than California’s Central Valley, where nearly all farmworkers are immigrants, roughly half of them living here illegally, according to estimates from agricultural economists at the University of California, Davis.
    -
    That reality is shaping the views of agriculture business owners here, like Mr. Herrin, who cannot recall ever voting for a Democrat. In dozens of interviews, farmers and owners of related businesses said that even the current system of tacitly using illegal labor was failing to sustain them. A work force that arrived in the 1990s is aging out of heavy labor, Americans do not want the jobs, and tightened security at the border is discouraging new immigrants from arriving, they say, leaving them to struggle amid the paralysis on immigration policy.

    The problem for Republicans is how they can blame the fact that food costs will double when there are no more illegals on Mr. Obama. Until they figure that out, they will bleat righteous indignation and move as fast as molasses in February.

    What exactly is wrong with the immigration laws we have?Besides the lack of enforcement?
    My friend’s wife came here from Canada.She is from the Philippines originally.It took her two years to get a visa to come here legally.Health check ,vaccination records,criminal back ground check, interviews,more back ground checks.She speaks 5 languages.She has job skills.She is not eligible for any government benefits for 5 years.
    Why do the dems want unskilled ,uneducated,unskilled quite often sick people to come here illegally and put them on welfare,food stamps,rent subsidies,and Obama phones?Oh yea ,have them vote illegally for them.That must be it.

    If you don’t want illegals here, then penalize the employers. If there weren’t any jobs for the illegals in the US, then they wouldn’t come here.

    There will have to be a major adjustment in US farming practices since well over half of those that pick produce are undocumented (illegal) workers. As the number of these have gone down due to large numbers that Obama has deported, produce rotted in the fields.

    Republicans are going to start demanding that businesses that hire illegals be prosecuted. For sure, they are.

    Right after they finish drafting a replacement for Obamacare.

    I totally agree. We should be severely punishing companies who illegally hire illegal immigrants.

    I’m Republican and I’m all for going after businesses that hire illegals. Hiring them is illegal as well, is it not?

    Go find another strawman to beat on.
