How many poor are already here
n 2010 alone, government at all levels oversaw a transfer of over $2.2 trillion in money, goods and services. The burden of these entitlements came to slightly more than $7,200 for every person in America. Scaled against a notional family of four, the average entitlements burden for that year alone approached $29,000.
If you would come down from your ivory tower once in a while, you would recognize that the laws that you hold so dear are put in place by politicians that are bought and paid for by the corporations and that is the reason this country is in trouble.
It's not immigrants on welfare that are killing this nation, Neo. It's laws that allow corporations and banks to run free and strip this nation of every last cent it has. If they had not done that, we wouldn't be talking about immigration because in a thriving economy we would want to welcome as many people to the party as possible
And let's be honest here. They are not coming to this nation to get welfare.

Because they are mostly' minorities', and we all know who is the supposed 'savoir' of them,.
And are 'wards' of the state, feeding, clothing, educating, and they don't have to do anything for it.
Other than to vote for their 'savior's.
WASHINGTON – The U.S. prison population declined 1.7 percent (or by 27,770 inmates) from 2011 to 2012, falling to an estimated 1,571,013 prisoners,
Randy I don't think I can give you an answer that can satisfy you however

How would stopping them at the border be illegal? If they don't enter the country in the first place, then our laws don't apply to them. A border agent can't hand over anyone that isn't in his custody.
Americans have become so warped in their thinking and have forgotten the values that made us strong. And yes as much as you want to hate it, self interest is a big part of our history, freedom, economy, and culture! It's not good or bad, it just is. Like free will! Can be positive or negative.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

I would like to multiple-star your posting!
Whenever I saw Pictures of seven-year-olds, waving some paper with an Adress in Maybelivingthereornot, AL - I feel like misery.
Where is your "Send my your poor,..."?
And where are your religious believes now?
Where is it?

First of all I must say that I'm glad true Christians like this congressmen still exist. It's time the tea party dropped the Christian image that they have attached their movement to, because going by some of the things these people said they are FAR from Christians. Although I'm not a Christian myself nor am I affiliated with any religious movement, I'm a firm believer in the phrase "practice what you preach".
Politics aside, I'm just sick of this issue. Not because of the thousands of kids that are coming in through the border illegally but by the lack of compassion and empathy, the dehumanization, the blatant fear mongering that is being spread around.
Please....a first world nation will never survive mass influx of third world uneducated unassimilating people. It has nothing to do with race or ethnicity. It however does have everything to do with culture. It's not my job to take care of the rest of the developing world. We were a developing nation at one point.
If you don't see the multicultural cesspool that is destroying America you're ignorant.
The Irish were basically European and came here and assimilated.
You can take your pathetic guilt and live in the past.
