Campaign rhetoric to the contrary, statistics show that the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border is less of a problem now than it has been for four decades.

I hate the headline. “Immigration” to me refers to people who respect the laws and sovereignty of this country enough to follow the rules, pay their dues, and come in legally. Is legal immigration up or down? See, that’s the thing…this piece doesn’t touch on that question at all.

Change the headline.

I have to agree with Bret.  Is Julian CONCERNED that illegal crossing appears to be down?  I really don’t have a problem with a decline in those numbers.  Now let’s work on figuring out what to do about those who’ve already established themselves in the U.S.

illegal immigration down. Estimates that 1 million made it across our border this year. No jobs in U.S. so we only get 1mil. invading our country instead of the larger swarm. Wow im celebrating only a mil coming into the u.s. Congrats to homeland security and the admin. only a mil made it in. How ridiculous. Secure the border.

I come for visit, get treated regal,
So I stay, who care I illegal?
I cross border, poor and broke,
Take bus, see employment folk.
Nice man treat me good in there,
Say I need to see welfare.
Welfare say, “You come no more,
We send cash right to your door.”
Welfare checks, they make you

Medicaid it keep you healthy!
By and by, I got plenty money,
Thanks to you, American dummy.
Write to friends in motherland,
Tell them come as fast as you can.
They come in rags and Chebby

I buy big house with welfare bucks.
They come here, we live together,
More welfare checks, it gets better!
Fourteen families they moving in,
But neighbor’s patience wearing thin.
Finally, white guy moves away,
Now I buy his house, and then I say,
“Find more aliens for house to rent.”

And in the yard I put a tent.
Send for family (they just trash),
But they, too, draw the welfare cash!
Everything is mucho good,
And soon we own the neighborhood.
We have hobby—it’s called breeding,
Welfare pay for baby feeding.
Kids need dentist? Wife need pills?
We get free! We got no bills!

American crazy! He pay all year,
To keep welfare running here.
We think America darn good place!
Too darn good for the white man

If they no like us, they can go,
Got lots of room in Mexico

WAKE UP PEOPLE!
An education is a good thing.

step #1
Every Non-representative including obama and holder are not upholding the oath of office! they swore to defend the Constitution! If these clowns were to do their job, this would all be a Moot point!
Anchors and their criminal parents go, period, you knew you were breaking the law when you crossed the border.
Next shut down any business hiring ill
