    You should stand next to him, Jerry, because your pants are currently on fire.

    Michael what is your solution? The conservatives keep flapping their lips about how everything is the President’s fault but I have yet to see any specific recommendation on what to do. They don’t want to spend money on dealing with this problem but they are more than happy to spend money on another Benghazi investigation.

    The 2008 law was based on a Clinton-term law and Bush signed the 2008 act to protect only the victims of human sex traffikers. It was not a general amnesty for all illegal aliens coming into the USA. The 2013-2014 Flood is the creation of a wrong interpretation of law, or maybe it is just the natural Democratic scoff-law practice.

    -This President is AWOL on scandal after scandal, pretending he is a Celebrity Visitor enjoying 8 years of taxpayer-paid Perks. Worst President Ever, and I began voting for Ike.-p.s. I’m adding Holbert to my Favs….

    I never thought I would have to say this, but Holbert is actually correct. The current immigration mess IS Dubya’s fault, as Obama is compelled by law to enforce the laws that were passed under Dubya, which Dubya endorsed.

    So Holbert is correct, but not in the way he thinks. Because he doesn’t. Think, that is.

    My understanding that the buildup of children along the boarder is an unintended consequence of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, a bill championed by a Democrat and signed into law by Bush. My understanding is a side affect of the law is that it’s more difficult to send the children caught sneaking into the country back to their nation of origin if it doesn’t boarder the US.Instead of just bitching and blaming Obama (or Bush for that matter) the focus should be on how to fix it the problem.

    Congress needs to look at “legal”, and “asylum” from the total picture, not the political B.S., and xenophobes concerns. Hmm had the Caribe indians met Columbus with M-16s instead of tributes, MY ancestors would have already been in the Americas, for several millennia, but all these “anti-immigrant” folks, wouldn’t be here.

    Harley, you need to take your meds. Your rants don’t even make sense on their own terms.
