    That fence should have turrets on it, but other than that it looks good.
    Those look like LEGAL immigrants, of which Republicans have been their biggest supporters.
    Now if you’re talking about the 12 million ILLEGAL ALIENS that the Democrats want to hand citizenship to, then most hard working Americans have a real problem with that.
    Unfortunately, the Democrats just see 12 million new loyal Democrats.
    Screw the Americans who already can’t find a decent job.

    I’m still trying to figure out why we would even want the illegal immigrant population here…
    I mean, given that it is about two thirds male, and about the same percentage has less than an 8th grade education, has more health issues than the legal population, and has close to a 100% record of criminal activity starting with the fact they are here illegally…
    Not exactly the bunch we need for a high tech America is it? On the other hand, it is exactly the bunch the Progressive Left needs for an enlarged social welfare state of the sort dragging Europe down.

    Republicans have NEVER supported legal immigration from central America. People do not sneak over the border because they want to be criminals. People sneak over the border because, unless you’re from Cuba, legal immigration requires an average wait of 13 years. That doesn’t help American farmers, who need migrant workers who are able to work based on crops, not bureaucracy. The system is broken, and the GOP has blocked all reform for two decades.

    They probably had to pick the flowers for the GOP to use…

    This is an issue I have not fully sorted out in my own mind, but there are a few things possibly worth saying.
    First of all, contrary to the note above, many members of the GOP are entirely in favor of creating a way to let illegal immigrants in — George W. Bush was a big supporter — as long as they are permanent second-class non-citizens. In other words, a cheap labor source not covered by labor law, minimum wage requirements, and the like, with no legal recourse and no path to citizenship. This is still the path many Republicans favor: a legalized underclass to do dirty work. We used to call those “slaves.”
    Rather than debating whether we should provide a path to citizenship to illegals, I think what we should do is examine how anyone becomes a citizen. The US, for all its pride as a nation of immigrants, treats potential immigrants and even visitors in a truly awful way.
    Let’s do something different: make it easier for hardworking, ambitious people to cross the border and become citizens, and we won’t have so many illegals.

    “There were a couple of government sites I found back then on Google that showed total deportations per year, going back to Reagan.”

    ICE has historical monthly records from 2007 through Aug 2012. They also have 2013 documented for removals as follows:

    In FY 2013, Mexico continued to be the leading country of origin for those removed, followed by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. FY 2013 Top 10 Countries of Removal by Citizenship Citizenship Total
    Mexico 241,493
    Guatemala 47,769
    Honduras 37,049
    El Salvador 21,602
    Dominican Republic 2,462
    Ecuador 1,616
    Brazil 1,500

    Republicans really, really, really hate illegal immigration. Really. Just hate it. And they’ll do anything to stop it. Anything.
    Anything except stop people from hiring illegals. That would be Bad for Business.

    “I must be getting senile. I could have sworn Reagan was no longer in office in 2007.”

    Well…I must be getting dense because I don’t see the point in this sentence.
