We can count them but, for some unknown reason we can't catch them and throw them back. Sounds like BS to me. Kick ALL the leeches back to THEIR country.

let the fraud begin! knowing as all do these folks will commit all sorts of things and the new thing thanks to obeyme all will say they graduated here.

selective enforcement will cause all sorts of problems to boot.best bet pick them all up and release at the whitehouse no matter where they are caught take them too "their" leader.

i am sure all there will change their minds when every illegal alien caught is dumped in dc

Another example of why the Obama administration needs to go. They *know* that there are at least 15,000 illegal aliens in the El Paso area - but they're not planning to do a damned thing about it.

Remember in November who this guy thinks is important and deserving of his consideration; vote accordingly.

Now because they are opting for selective enforcement and because the libtards keep crying about how the Constitutional rights belong to the illegals as well as the legals I have one question.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE 14th AMMENDMENT? You know that whole Equal protection under the law thing? Seems to me that if you are engaging in selective enforcement then that is not Equal enforcement under the law.
Kind of seems like you are discriminating against people that came here the right way by rewarding criminal behavior for those that invaded illegaly.

That is 15,000 illegal aliens that are;

Over 18
Under 31
Have no criminal record
graduated high school

That covers about 5% of all the illegal aliens in just one small to medium sized city.
Remember Obama says only 1 million would be eligable. There are over 20 million illegal aliens in this country.

Just wait for the age discrimination law suits. Why can't people over 31 apply?

Hell yes! These people all need to be DEPORTED at once, no excuses accepted and no delays allowed. For those of us trying to get by on a fixed income, it makes no sense to pay for their education, medical, etc.

This is the perfect time for the DOJ to make up for the little gun running crap they pulled a couple years ago. They need to call it Fast and Ferious part 2 like a movie sequiel. Have all these illegal aliens {not imigrants) law breaker people come in sign up for their free bee work cards you have all there names and addresses on file phone numbers fingerprints the whole sha bang then tell sorry we changed our mind your going to get a workers card alright. But it won't be here in the USA now hop on the bus Gus we don't need to discuss much slam the cuff on them and away they go southbound. There is just one problem I don't think there are that many buses, trains, boats or planes running 24 hours a day 7 days a week for 30 days in the United States to give all are illegals trespassers a ride home.

Now that would be a good use of our tax money - to transport these scumbags back across the border. I don't care if we break up families or even have to take someone out of a hospital bed - they broke the rules, this is a country of laws - they need to get and get out fast. I hope they put that on the news as a warning to anyone else who thinks they can sneak in.

Yes it would be money very well spent times 100 fold be my guess. You seem to have a clue on whats happenin in the world. How does China handle their illegal trespassers? One thing I do know about China when they build a fence they build a fence that can be seen from outer space or the moon. Hell we went to the moon but can't build a fence what the hell is wrong?

They treat them like every other country in the world except for the USA does - they arrest them and deal with them. Some countries, like China, shoot them, others imprison and still others deport. But they all secure their borders and deal with trespassers. I personally like the way Ross Perot dealt with them in a parody on SNL a few years ago. He suggested tying them to a tree on a hot Texas day, spraying the person with sugar water and then turning a colony of fire ants loose upon them.

To the person posting under my name some of the information is correct and I do believe the President overstepped his authority in having this amnesty. I believe we need a reform law as soon as possible and that congress, not the president should be making the reforms and laws. Leave the interpretation up to the Supreme court. We need to remove all those people who came here and dragged the progeny with them. Those who were under age at the time and not in schools when they came over should have a bye. Those who were 15 and older when smuggled into the country should have to serve in the United States Military for a four year period and have not criminal back ground whatsoever.
All the parents however should be forced back across the border and have to get in line to apply like every one who has done so legally for years. Those who are illegal and die here should have their bodies sent back to their home towns and villages for burial.

If it were up to me, I wouldn't deport them. Instead, me and some of my buddies would work them over but good and we wouldn't be afraid to leave them butt up with a flower in it. I would also borrow my neighbor's feline because nothing is as humiliating as being tea bagged by a cat.
