Where would they live? You can't just send families off to nowhere. As long as they're productive and contributing taxpayers give them a path to citizenship. We need immigrants as much as they need us.


When these people crossed the border, illegally, were they concerned so much about where they would live here? I think not.

What's got the Left all in a lather is that for the first time in a decade immigration LAWS are being enforced, as they should have been all along IF we are the "nation of laws" we claim to be, They know when they jump the border that they are violating US law, but they don't care and neither do those who support them,.

If we're such a nation of laws then the impeachment process should begin soon.

Maybe they feel like those immigrants that entered the country illegally are having a positive impact on their community. That's pretty much what they said. No?

 

Don't care. Return and re-enter. Legally.

Kenny,, if the laws were being enforced, as you say, how come there was no "fear" in the illegal-alien community until Trump was elected?

 

How come they didn't feel threatened by ICE under Obama? Was it perhaps because they knew that the laws were not being enforced seriously.

 

Trump said he was going to do this.  Did you and the other misguided lefties not believe he meant what he said?

 

No doubt there will be many sad stories but that is the risk the illegals knew they were taking when they jumped the border. The risk level has been generally low for year but now the risk level has risen and they are panicking.

Even if true, there is a vast difference between immigrants and illegal aliens.

It's an unreasonable path for many. And again, if we didn't need the labor they wouldn't come here

 

Unreasonable path...unreasonable path... maybe if I repeat it a hundred more times it will make sense to me.

 

I think it is an unreasonable path that I must follow to purchase a firearm. I also think it is an unreasonable path I must follow if I want to carry a concealed weapon. I think I drive better than 75% of the people in Md....I think it is unreasonable that I must pass tests to get a license, it is unreasonable that I have to renew said license....since I drive just fine ...thank you very much.

 

Shall I go on?

 

Because a LAW is unreasonable from ones viewpoint..in your world...it is OK to ignore it?

 

My friend that is called anarchy.

 

See the city if you need examples of ignoring laws because it is unreasonable.

If the laws weren't being enforced , how did 240,000 people get deported last year? Trump isn't doing anything Obama didn't do. He's just talking about it more and you gullible rightys are lapping it up.

Look, one thing I do know. I would be absolutely besides myself if I immigrated to the US. Did it all the right way. Studied went through all the hoops...became a citizen. And now....the screaming lefties are now saying ....skip that .... you get all the goodies anyway.

 

Oh heck that sounds like what is destroying BC ...the great society. Just on steroids.

Have you ever made a post that didn't include an insult at Baltimore City no matter what the actual topic is?

Well why are they able to get jobs?

They are able to get jobs for a few reasons.  One of the biggest is that their employers tend to not follow the law as to taxes and wages.  Second is that if we would quit paying able bodied americans to stay home.  They would take the "jobs americans won't do".

Probably not. I will always be against people entering and staying in this country illegally.

The rightys are questioning why the protests now. What has changed besides the party now in the White House.
