  1. Student loans are up over 500% in the last five years because a) people are living off that money and b) they keep these students from going on the unemployment numbers.

  2. Not much but something. At least some towns are standing against relocating these illegals into their neighborhoods. States and towns should simply say no. I personally do not care if these buses and planes have to circle the country until they run out of fuel and then all those along for the joyride have to walk back across the border. Do not care. Either family members come to the border and process these people in some legal manner or they go back.

    Anyway, good for these people for standing up. After discussions with my Senator and Congressman’s office it is clear that although they are aware and concern they have no concrete plan of action to react to a crisis. So, it’s up to the individuals to act on a local level.
