for sure, faux-center....if those Republics justa voted to 'fix' 'immigration'....the illegal part would cease to exist....even if it takes an open border to do that.....for sure we would get a whole lot more residents of our Democrat Party plantation...for sure...to move forword...

I must apologize for not finding this fine blog question from you, loco. Gosh, you ask so many questions and so little time. You really don't comprehend well, do you? I believe that part of the financial request from the President was to help provide for a faster transition in dealing with the refugees. The determination of their qualifications could have been accelerated had the obstructionist Republicans not seen fit to cut the funding...The Republicans are famous for this and then yelling about things not getting done. Not all of these people are qualified to stay, but the law is on the books and needs to be followed. The support of the law cannot be ignored because the Republicans want something else to blame Obama for. Where would you ship these people off to? Your house? If the House of Republicans would address the immigration bill instead of hiding it, maybe this problem would have been solved. Thank goodness for the obstructionist Repubs and their blind followers.

"...W.W. Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act..."

"So all the people, very young to young adults, are supposed victims of trafficking? That is what the law was to be addressing. Do tell, centerish, how all the youngsters at the border qualify under this law as victims of trafficking."

centerish, how many of the current "refugees" have been in court to determine their status? Why is it necessary to ask states other than the border states to house these "refugees?"

This law is being abused. As I asked before, are all these people, young and old alike, victims of trafficking?

Let's see centerish get past her talking points...1,2,3...

1 Pres. Obama is great

2 Nobody should ever say Pres. Obama isn't great

3 If in doubt, refer to 1 and 2 as necessary

Just goes to show how little you research items, loco. The law is set up for hearings and due process to determine their eligibility. But, you knew that , Right? Right? Or, are you making the determination on them? So, show us your facts on the sieve declaration. Come now, loco, you can surely do that without reciting Fox News, chapter and verse.

If the southern states would stop hiring hiring folks without legal passes; the problem would not exist. Those who promoted iraq now want to ignore children running 4 their lives.Follow the money; the refugees have little.

The Democrats are wrong about the border.

It is not secure. It is a sieve.

What a brilliant strategy! Import new voters! I don't know why Democrats didn't think of this years ago. We've had the Motel 6 of border crossings for quite a few years now. The only thing we've been missing is the Tom Bodett to do the advertising.

Obama is our Tom Bodett.

(A travel warning put out this week by the State Department said that “since 2010, Honduras has had the highest murder rate in the world,” citing the homicide rate of 75.6 per 100,000 people in 2013.

A march 2014 UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) report found that of 404 unaccompanied children they spoke to who entered the U.S. during or after October 2011, 58 percent “were forcibly displaced because they suffered or faced harms that indicated a potential or actual need for international protection.”)

Obviously, the Christian philosophy promoted by the right wing, has limitations and doesn't really apply here.

"While the United States received around 85 percent of all applications for asylum, the UNHCR report also found a 435 percent increase in asylum requests from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras in other countries — Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Belize.

This isn’t a new trend. CBP has seen an effective doubling in apprehensions of unaccompanied minors from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras for the past few years — even before DACA. The number jumped from just over 4,000 in 2011, to almost 10,500 in 2012, and 26,000 in 2013. This year the current number stands at 39,000 for the same three countries." These people are fleeing: Why- next page-

"give me your tired, you poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" Where did I hear this before? But, what is the name of that law that was passed almost unanimously by the House and Senate in 2008? "The W.W. Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act of 2008." So, this is a bad law or there is no reason for the law? These people are just flooding the US and we can use this as a political foil instead of working on solutions. Following are some c/p facts on the situation. Take note of the increases in requests to other countries. Maybe if the immigration bill in Boehnor's desk were allowed to be debated in the House, a solution could be worked on. But the "do-nothing" House still does NOTHING.

DakotaBorn, I am one of those who's noticed the decades-old sieve at the border. It is the fault of those who would erase our borders if possible: globalists whose goals are not as easily met with a US interested in its sovereignty.

Yep, Republicans and Democrats alike.

So should we practice isolationism? No, but enforcing existing immigration laws would have been appropriate for some time now.

I give credit to those who've entered this country legally (good for them!) and give no credit to any who perpetuate illegal immigration, for whatever reason.

IF we are a country of laws, we should see them at work in border security and legal immigration. If laws are created to circumvent a secure border and to promote illegal immigration, that's a bad law that was passed. Yes, even in 2008.

No documentation, deport - just like it happens in most developed countries all over the world.

So PJinfinity agrees with those quotes so skillfully c/p'd, and has already phoned any and all Democrat representatives from his/her district/locale to let them know that spending needs to be curtailed?

Really and truly?

Well, I'm a believer...

Frankly, yes, quality post from anger, who seems tired of all the accusing with none of the fixing from some lefties.

How about you, centerish? What would you do specifically about this claim (if true) of PJinfinity's?

Back to the topic at hand. In my opinion we should have done border, port and visa/passport security in 2002. However, the powers that be decided it was more important to fund going to war in Iraq. And since that was going to send the budget into the red, our security took second place.
