Obama hasn’t done enough to help border jumpers, huh? Hmmm…a disrespectful, end-run around Congress isn’t enough?

Here’s the thing…border jumpers aren’t owed anything. They’re not even supposed to be here. If they don’t like the way things are here they can leave. Even if they do like the way things are here they should leave.

Agreed; election year vote pandering aside he has refused steadfastly to do anything on the illegal immigration issues .... But To be fair he’s not the only one… that’s why individual states have stooped to meddling where they’d all much prefer not to be…to try and force those in Washington to do their jobs….
and as usual Washington shows great propensity for partisan politics…
and nothing else…..

“Arpaio is currently the subject of a Department of Justice investigation “
Be fair; everyone knows that is nothing more than a justice department reprisal for his steadfast refusal to allow them dictate to him how to enforce state law .... Agree with how he’s doing so or not;vote him in or out when the time comes accordingly….but he is right to uphold state law as the state leadership says to do so… not as some bureaucrat in Washington who don’t even live here tries to dictate!

Some people say politicians pander to constituents. Some people say they don’t so much care about constituents than voters. Border jumpers are neither. So, they’re upset with Obama…what are they going to do? Not vote for him?

The only thing border jumpers are entitles to is the inside of a jail cell, and after which a ride home.

Sorry, we missed your input...

Fernando Lopez of Phoenix rode the Undocu-bus from Phoenix to Charlotte, N.C., to protest what he called an inadequate response by President Obama toward people like him who are in the U.S. illegally. He said he faces deportation after being stopped by police for a broken headlight.

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
