They may find the price of that is pretty high.

I had the first burglary ever at my shop. I am not a happy camper about that. They took $2000 dollars worth of tools. Have plugged some holes. Next time will not go undetected.

So, if I break into the bank, does that earn me the right to the money in the vault?

Are those rights reciprocal? Can Americans move in droves to Mexico and have a right to become citizens?
If not, what's different?

Well, THAT certainly solves the Homeland Security issue of a sieve instead of a secure border.

11 mil is the number being used to make it seem that there aren’t that many illegals in the US. Probably closer to 50 mil. Amnesty will be a tidal wave.

One group of crooks says that another group of crooks are now legitimate and that we Sheep just need to stand here and be fleeced whenever they decide we ‘deserve’ it.

I also notice that the citizens of Mexico are now forming vigilante groups to handle their own crime problems. Coincidence?

Earned the right by illegally entering the country, obtaining stolen SSNs, forging identification documents, lying on their W-4s, taking jobs at slave wages and putting Americans out of work? Is THAT how they earned it?

They’re not here because of marriages to Americans, and that’s why they don’t assimilate quickly. You need to stem the flow of slaves, who have come here out of desperation and a desire for more money. Immigration wasn’t originally intended to be all about money. Our nation is morally bankrupt, and the immigration problem also stems from that. Take it up with your bosses, who bring the slaves in easier and with less cost than Americans bring their foreign spouses in.

You know, those terrorists have worked so hard, planning, evading detection, living among us, the infidels, that they’ve earned the right to blow up a city or two.

DHS was a bad idea and even the name, Homeland Security, is weird and does not sound American.

Getting rid of it should be a 2016 campaign issue.

Agree totally.

This is not a race issue. Texas has always been Gringo & Tejanos. But it is a question of legality and undivided loyalty to the US.

Red Communists, one and all. Raised on Marx and Lenin, with graduate study in Stalin, Mao under professors Ayers, Dohrn and Wright.

Conclusion? We lost the Cold War.

I could not as a Christian vote for Romney. I voted 3rd party, for a very good man who would have been a very good president. Too bad you did not do the same. You chose to vote for what you consider the lesser of two evils (and I consider equally evil) so don’t blame me. By the way, the House could stop this, just as they could have stopped Obamacare — if they had the backbone to do it, and without Romney! But you know what, there are enough of us know who will NOT vote for another Democrat with an “R” after his name, and Rinos will never win a national election again. So you might as well leave the republican party if they continue to nominate Rinos, we are not coming back to give a Rino victory.

Here in California they comprised 35% of our prison population.

Not to mention his “deputy”.
This from the Menendez thread...

Mayorkas, a Clinton federal prosecutor who resigned in shame after orchestrating the pardon of a major-league drug trafficker, has since been promoted to DHS Deputy Secretary.

Think about that for a while.

It's obvious the federal government has earned the right to loot our wallets, bank accounts, personal privacy... and about anything else it damm well pleases to steal.

So why shouldn't illegal aliens have earned the right to steal United States citizenship for themselves, too?

I agree.

I think making these issues with, real determination, would gain support more than the go along to get along — but we are more competent approach they use now.

Make it philosophical and real.
