So Mexico knows it is passing trainloads of people to US Border with no documentation? Sounds like the time for Mexico and US to have a meeting and meanwhile it is time to defund and dismantle the DHS… move US troops in rotation to the border and begin impeachment hearings. Drinking beer and playing pool while this crisis exists is in violation of the oath of office. this has nothing to do with opinions of various publicity and power seeking too public figures but with the simple rule of law..

Now this might get the National Guard out because Obama will want to have them go rescue these illegal to make sure the get here to help him destroy this country. Maybe he could get a few billion more tax payer dollars and cut out the coyotes and just go to South America and have them flown in, why take chances. Gee, that way he could even say, and I am sure the press will back him up, that he is fighting crime by doing that.

Of course Mexico knows. Guatemala, Ecuador, and all the others know too. In order to overthrow the United States (freedom, capitalism, etc), you must break the system from the inside out. This is what Obama and the other progressives have been doing since the 50′s. There’s nothing accidental or unplanned about this surge. Nor has the Fed policy of QE and governmental ‘bailouts’ been accidental either. The collapse will come soon, then the idea that was America; the idea that brought the greatest number of people out of poverty in the history of mankind; will be dead.

The level of BS coming out of the press is astounding. Its so easy to deconstruct their agenda.

There are no state department travel warnings for Guatemala and El Salvador These countries are at least 20 times safer than any major US city run by Democrats (84 separate shootings in Chicago last weekend (Democrats) All the guns in Chicago are as illegal as they are in Mexico where the level of violence is truly horrific.

The only country that has travel warnings is Honduras where the government is a least as incompetent and corrupt as ours but those and crime is neither investigated nor solved (like Chicago or Detroit) These travel warnings are 20 year old.

So who invented the fake narrative the press so dutifully spreads like manure? Is it the same people who cooked up the Benghazi “You Tube insult to Mohammed narrative?”

Our national media are less then worthless; they are arms of statist propaganda that would put Herr Goebbels media machine to shame

Regarding the photo of the train coated with people like an ice cream coated with jimmies:

That is a direct consequence of Obama not only failing to enforce the existing immigration laws, but also his “encouragement” of illegals to “come on down”.

In addition, his administration has hindered at every opportunity, state enforcement of border laws.

This mess is entirely on him, having nothing to do with the failure of the congress to provide him with a bill that he would sign. Until that takes place, “O” is bound by law to enforce existing laws.

In light of that, why should Congress waste their time proposing immigration reforms that the president will not honor. I say he will not because he has consistently demonstrated that he will pick and choose which laws to enforce.

His word is worthless.

Someone who wants to emigrate to another country, normally and legally, goes to the Consulate of the country of his or her choice and applies for an emigrant’s visa. After being screened and evaluated, this person receives the desired visa and immmigrates completely legally, without any problem, to the country where he or she hopes to find a better life and spend the rest of his or her life.
The thousands of illegal aliens, who, with the covert help of the Deceiver–in-Chief in the White House, are illegally crossing the borders of the United States, have been lied to and coerced into committing a crime. They believe the false promises of the forces of evil that are committed to destroying this country and the universal laws that it stands for and abides by.
Yet: the useful idiots of the semi intellectual Left call these poor suckers “immigrants,” which they are not.
Because by their actions, and according to US. and international law, they are illegal aliens committing a crime.

The purpose of all these is an invasion without shooting one bullet, with the agreement of our “American” President.

After 8 years of Obozo & Co’s lies, scandals, illegalities, blame games, irresponsibility & lack of leadership, the “D” party won’t be able to even get a dogcatcher elected to national office.

The common term for a train riding up from Mexico full of illegal immigrant children is called a “death train.” Obama is letting through so many illegals they actually have a slang name and a process for it. 70,000 children in one year showing up at the border. Legal Americans dedicate their WHOLE LIVES to raising on average 2 kids, and Obama just opens the floodgates and asks for someone else to take care of them. Truly disguisting.

Children! headlines spouted by the MSM. It’s definitely representative of the photos being leaked by whistleblowers and other officials and is a stark contrast to the pics of small groups of children being shown by other new outlets. Maybe that’s why they aren’t allowing any access to the sites. This allows them to fall back on the William Wilberforce act passed by Bush in 2005. It’s all Bush’s fault right? They will be able to declare a federal emergency soon and open those FEMA camps right up with no scrutiny. Seems a little too convenient to me.

Rick Perry had the best idea. Put 1000 National guard on the border with guns and tell them to stay on the other side of the fence. We already have enough people on the public dole and the country is broke. Get your help from Mexico, since they were kind enough to let you in. NO MAS!

It’s the North American Union folks. You forced your head in the sand when those you called “conspiracy theorists” told you about it a decade ago. These countries, and their peoples, know about it … Obama knows about it, Bush II knew about it, these billionaires know about it, and they’re going to “break it to you” gently via “amnesty”.

Don’t worry though, you can also travel freely between Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, etc. without a passport. You can live there if you choose and those countries can’t, and won’t, offer any resistance.

Maybe you will still refuse to believe it with the passage of “amnesty”, perhaps you’ll need stronger proof, like the total destruction of the dollar and the subsequent rise of the “Amero”?

Wake up folks, your political leaders sold our country to globalism years ago and they haven’t bothered to tell anyone about it.

Yahoo news: 2000 plus comments! Reuters? 211 Yesterday, in a 24 hour period they only allowed 32 comments. They don’t want us expressing our outrage at this Inept “President”!

wow…the hate in these comments is utterly amazing. I’d rather see people come here legally and on the up and up, as well as companies NOT hire and those that do be FINED excessively so it’s not worth the expense to give them jobs. Without jobs no one would be coming.

Yet, all this hate and vitriol makes me sad to be an American that people are so wrapped up in their partisanship that they lose all sense of decency. If the heart of America is rotting, then it’s not due to illegals coming here, many in this country are able to do it without help from the outside.

I am “not” for all the crazy talk about shooting kids or gang members at the border. I am however for taking them to air force bases directly, giving them a good meal, and flying them back on cargo planes. We could also send them with information to pass out to others telling them “not” to come to the U.S. expecting automatic citizenship with benefits!

Yeah, I’m sure that has nothing to do with the fact that Yahoo News has a ton more readers than Reuters. Ockham’s Razor, dude.

Yeah, let’s bomb Mexico. Commit yet another unjustified act of war. That sounds like the responsible thing to do.

Illegals need to be fired upon on site just like an invading army trying to cross into our country because that’s what they are, criminal invaders. It’s time to enforce our laws, and change the ones that are allowing them even one cent of American taxpayer money. Americans need to boycott every company that is hiring illegals even if you suspect them of hiring illegals. Join NumbersUSA, Join a Minuteman group and volunteer at the border if you can. It’s time to stop caring about what the crimmigrants and their supporters think and say about it. Take back your community and your country from the crimmigrants!
