Why is it that if you cross the North Korean border illegally you get thrown into prison and get 12 years of hard labor... If you illegally cross the Iranian border while out supposedly leisurely hiking in the hills you get arrested and imprisoned... But if you cross the U.S. Border illegally you get a drivers license, a Social Security card and free health care? :confused:

That is an excellent question that will never be answered by this current administration.

What did the last administration do about it?

Could've predicted that response....


:rolleyes:.................


Better yet, what can the last administration do about it now??? Whose job is it to handle NOW??????

Your response leads me to believe the current administration can't handle it...if that's the case, we can add that to an increasingly long list of things they can't seem to handle....

C'mon 2010 regards,

This is a problem passed on from the last administration, who received it from the previous etc etc etc. Maybe the problem is not with the creek swimmers but those who profit off their being here legal or Illegal. If the profit is removed, then the hiring will go way down and with less incentive to swim the creek, fewer will get wet. Ever wonder why those who profit are slapped on the wrist and back on the streets in five minutes like a prostitute? Ever wonder if it was the neighbor behind you or across the street? We all know that the liberals do not create or manage jobs so who is responsible for fifty years of looking the other way?

The new Administration Might just get something done eventually, although it has been in the vested interest of the GOP for the last half century to block or stop any action on this for the People they represent. You know that the cah cah since 94 has been so deep that maybe it will take until the third or fourth Administration to get to immigration.

Are you suggesting Bill, that we should model ourselves on NK and Iran to address this problem?

I know. It's easy to see that there are some who hold the current administration to a different standard for political reasons, isn't it?;)

That would be a good start.

Actually in 2007 Bush wholeheartedly supported a bi-partisan bill that gave amnesty to a majority of illegals.....it was voted down.

Bingo!

Road kill, I'm just pointing out the double standard that exists out there.;)

Although I know many conservatives were unhappy with Bush in immigration, I'm just trying to figure out what's changed. I have no love for illegals. My brother pretty much got driven out of the drywall business because he could not get a bid on a job that would make money for him. The business in his area was literally overtaken by a bunch of folks who could not speak a word of english. All the contractors around that area gleefully put the illegals to work on their new houses. The vast majority of those contractors were, you guessed it, conservatives.

Somebody smarter than me said that democrats figured out that immigrants (legal and illegal) comprised a valuable voting block. Republicans figured out they comprise a valuable cheap labor block. Wonder why NOBODY has done anything?

You need somebody to help clear brush off your Texas ranches. That looked like hard work!

Because they are linked to a huge voting bloc that neither party has the stones to stand up to. Wrong is wrong and illegal is illegal no matter who is in the WH. Time to man up and do something about it.

This jerk spent millions of other people's dollars campaining for this job. Isn't it about time he just went to work? Did he really not know what the challenges might be when he applied?

Perfect example of doublespeak....and you didn't answer the question that followed what you quoted, either....totally predictable...:cool:

Evan, we can also make sure that we don't have to suffer him a second term in office....:wink:

Reagan did the amnesty thing, and it was a band-aid. And it encouraged more to come here illegally, figuring eventually they, too, would get amnesty. Guess what?

I don't think we have to become NK or Iran to protect our borders.

My guess is that NK and Iran have to assume that anyone trying to get INto their countries are NOT doing so for a better-paying job. They assume it is for some ulterior motive of spying, etc. since there don't seem to be a lot of glossy brochures extolling "the good life" in those two countries.
