Saw a great sign today. “If someone entering the country illegally is called an immigrant, then shouldn’t a burglar be called a homeowner?”
Posted by someone on FB to that poll.

Good lord what a stupid question.

If you don’t deport them then its stopped being illegal and our border has ceased to exist.

Here is the real question:

Should the citizens of the United States rise up against newspapers and journalists who ask such stupid questions?

"Should the United States deport people for entering the country illegally?"

The fact that a poll is being conducted to ascertain whether or not citizens believe a law should be enforced is a symptom of the rot that infests the Tree of Liberty.

The usurper in the white hut is also a symptom of the disease. He, too, "takes the law under advisement," rather than doing his job and enforcing it.

Do you "deport" people for entering your home illegally?

Would the Secret Service "deport" someone for jumping the White House fence?

I’d make an exception for the otherwise non-criminal invaders, who have behaved since their arrival and not lived on the public dole. BUT, their countries of origin would have to accept an equal number of our homegrown hoodrats, methheads and progressives, and keep them!

They killed a young mother with a baby in the car just for driving too close to the king's palace. Even though this happened a mere six months ago, I'll bet nobody even remembers her name.

I think our border fence should be like a giant bug zapper, but designed for humans.

With the proper warning signage, of course.

I say it is important that we do not call such people “illegal aliens”, solely because the expression has been vitiated, exhausted, and no longer means what it says to many.

So instead, if they are from Mexico, call them “Mexican citizens”, because it frames the argument in much more basic terms.

“State legislature ponders giving ‘Mexican citizens’ in-state tuition and drivers licenses”, is a lot more honest than pretending they are “immigrants”.

If they moved into your back yard, pitched a tent and lit a fire in your compost heap, the question would not be if they were “squatters” on “tenants”. They are home invaders who do not belong there. Even if they don’t like their crappy home they have deserted, it is still their home.

Illegal Immigration Analogy

http://grouchyoldcripple.com/2014/04/illegal-immigration-analogy/

Allegedly written by Governor Jan Brewer in response to the Phoenix Suns owner’s opposition to Arizona’s illegal immigration law.

“What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying?

What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn’t be ejected.

Furthermore, what if Suns’ ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink?

And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?”

Rand Paul's immigration speech
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reform
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...

There are those who want this — they’re called liberal boomers, and they realize their Social Security “pensions” and their health care can’t be paid for with a shrunken workforce. IOW, they want to reintroduce slavery.

It’s only 92% in favor. That’s not significant enough for the media to accept as proof of anything. LOL

Will admit it’s an internet poll, but it should indicate at least the possibility that people are really fed up.

If this were in the Left’s favor, it would be shown on all three networks evening news, during a twenty minute puff piece.

Yes. Every other country in the world does. They also put them in camps outside the country as in Australia. Then they are deported. I say since Mexico is so upset we deport Mexicans we should use their illegal immigration laws.
