Over a year, hundreds of protests, thousands of phone calls and e-mails, a gazillion promises, and all you guys can come up with is a fence??? A nine billion dollar fence???? Am I missing something? Did all that action over the last year not get through. What part of Immigration reform do you guys not understand?? How many of you guys own stock in Boeing?
Oh I see, maybe you're all too busy sending inappropriate emails to congressional pages. They had a Republican House, Republican Senate and the President not only is a Republican but he had a plan even the democrats couldn't argue with, and you still accomplished NOTHING, NADA, ZIPPO ZILCH!!!!
You guys couldn't muster the courage to do the right thing. Now you have the gall to ask us to return you? Morons, all of you.
Let me restate the problem. You have 12 Million people who are living here without anyone knowing where they are. They are indespensible to our economy especially agriculture and travel. They can't pay taxes so they use services and our cities collect nothing from them. Fire, ambulance, Health and Education budgets are streched thin.
Employers who should pay taxes on these folks don't which is bad for those businesses that play by the rules.
Then there are the humanitarian reasons to act. Such as families being split apart, relatives being unable to attend the funerals or to the health of others because they can't leave or they won't be allowed back in. Again a lot of these people have become the fabric or our society.
Worse yet some of these 12 million are dangerous, and you don't know where they are.
But we have a fence!! I feel much better now. I mean, they can't get in, and maybe someday we won't be able to get out. Can't you just hear the soul of Ronald Reagan saying "Mr. Bush, tear down this wall" Nations that believe in Freedom do not build containing walls!!
I am sorry, but it is really time to vote all of your sorry rear ends out of Congress.
Congress really disgusts me lately.
