“Foreign nationals that have come into the United States are between 300- to 500,000,” Bachmann told an incredulous Crossfire co-host Van Jones. “My heart is broken for a female college student in Minnesota who was raped, murdered and mutilated by a foreign national who came into our country. We had a school bus full of kids in Minnesota — four children were killed on that school bus because an illegal alien driving a van went into that schoolbus.”
You can find all kinds of psycho's and degenerates that have been bread right here in the U.S.A. folks. I can promise you that.
How much damage could some kids even do to this country? I don't see them marching in here wielding AK's and grenades. So they clearly aren't a physical threat.
Disease? Central America isn't even very far. It's hardly exotic territory to the U.S. So what threat are they exactl
How about we suck it up and help some people for once? Is it really that bad? We Americans are too prosperous for our own good. We don't even know what true hard times are.
The Pew Hispanic Center estimates that 6–7 million immigrants came to the United States via illegal entry, accounting for probably a little over half of the total population. There are an estimated half million illegal entries into the United States each year.
A common means of border crossing is to hire people smugglers to help them across the border. Those operating on the US-Mexico border are known informally as "coyotes".
According to Pew, between 4 and 5.5 million foreigners entered the United States with a legal visa, accounting for between 33–50% of the total population. A tourist or traveler is considered a "visa overstay" once he or she remains in the United States after the time of admission has expired. The time of admission varies greatly from traveler to traveler depending on what visa class into which they were admitted. Visa overstays tend to be somewhat more educated and better off financially than those who entered the country illegally.
Illegal immigration to the United States
Denver is entering the debate over how to deal with a flood of more than 50,000 children from Central America who have been caught crossing the U.S. border with Mexico.
"My opinion would be that it's a humanitarian thing to do," Susman said. "And I think we'd be able to offer them shelter and comfort while we figure out what the federal government wants to do."
If these new illegals were escaping intolerable situations, it has been like that for a very long time,why do you suppose all of a sudden they are coming by the thousands?
They were told if they come, they will not be deported. They were told to say they are refugees.
¿Por qué? That's: Because why? Better start practicing...
How must our own poor people feel knowing that others are having their needs met or at least that our government is trying, yet they are left out in the cold?
Forgive me this Night Star - but the same people complaining about taking care of these kids are the same people that tend to complain when the government tries to take care of our own home grown poor. If the government is involved - it must be wrong.
I don't like the billions of dollars going to war either!!
Times are tough - jobs are scarce. Hard times and stress bring out the worst in people - history proves that much.
I've been saying for some time that they are very dangerous and if it continues, we will see a section of our own population come to the point that they could be compared to a portion of Nazi Germany's population that accepted or even agreed with the genocide that occurred.
Think it is extreme to say that?

They didn't HAVEv to come here, illegally no less. They didn't do anything, but bring this fate upon themselves. They can go through the system to be become a legal citizen just like everyone else.
While congress does nothing.
