Most people here would deport every child here illegally.
Rubio does not believe that is the correct thing to do. He wants to change the law to provide a way for some of those children to stay in this country.
Since I think it would be stupid to try to push a policy of deporting all of these children, I agree with Rubio, therefore I don’t like that they misquote him and make him sound worse on the subject than he is to the strong anti-illegal movement.
But for those who want to deport every one of these children, I don’t think a little misquoting of Rubio bothers them. He’s evil, and so he deserves it.
I won’t overly characterize this debate, but I wouldn’t be surprised if most everybody who is strongly attacking Rubio now have never actually met one of these children, and have no idea what the actual circumstances are for which they are advocating deportation.
For me, I just don’t see the point of taking a child who just graduated high school, speaks nothing but english, has lived nowhere but america their entire lives, and is a functioning, productive member of our society, and throwing them back into a country they’ve never really lived in, whose language they don’t know, leaving them destitute and unable to have a life of any kind.
Sure, we CAN do it — but why would we want to do it?
Do you remember how many of us Freepers ,posted , faxed , called Congress for months fighting against this Dream act?
And now this Communist Obama just passes this Dream ACT Amnesty for illegals by decree. Obama just gave Amnesty to illegals and this will bring many millions more here. You don't see a problem with that?
Yes deport them all . They are here illegally and many Americans are homeless and unemployed.
I wouldn’t have any trouble kicking them out. They are illegal. They cost us over $100,000 to educate for their public schooling and no telling how much more in welfare, etc.
Let them go to their home country and fix them. We have a real unemployment rate of almost 15% and to even consider this is pssing on American out of work.
It is always about *the children*. You know that plenty of legal immigrants come into the country and then decide to go back home again, and guess what? They have to bring their underage children back with them. Some of the children may have been born in a foreign country and others may have been born in the US, even children from the same family. These kids have to go back with their parents whether they are toddlers or teenagers who have lived most of their lives in the US. The effects of returning to their native lands is no different on these children of LEGAL immigrants than the effects on the children of ILLEGAL immigrants. It comes under the category of tough luck. Why is is that legal immigrants have to accept their tough luck but illegal immigrants cannot suffer any inconvenience or disappointment? Most illegals come from Mexico, how comvenient for them that they live so close to us. Unlike immigrants from far away, they can have frequent visits from their relatives in the US. Immigrants from across the oceans have a harder time than Mexican immigrants, yet all we hear about are the constant complaints of Mexican illegals.
What crock. what an idealized fantasy you paint. The public schools are indoctrinating these people to hate and despise everything about America. Very few are adding anything of value to our Republic. There sole purpose here is to transform our Republic into a Socialist sewer
Stop spouting thing idealized garbage that has basis in reality.
Sure, we CAN do it but why would we want to do it?
We can't do it and we wont do it. They will continue to flood into our Republic and destroy it -- with glee. Around our area the illegals are greatly contributing to the increase in crime. Many have been caught removing copper from houses being built.
One was scene taking a 900$ pole saw from my neighbors tree service truck. I have a relative on the local police force and he says the crime by illegals is rampant.
The illegals are not here because they love the land of opportunity. No they are here to get what they want by any means.
We are being invaded by third worlders who have a hatred for American culture. They refuse to assimilate.
I hope we are around on Free Republic in 2022. I am certain we will all be complaining if only we acted stronger to stop the invasion....
The cold reality is our Republic is being destroyed from within by the left and GOP-e.
