  1. How is it possible that 67,000 illiterate invaders are going to cost us anything but the price of a one-way return ticket to C.A.? Not only did Obama commit a treasonous act by orchestrating the invasion, he wants us to pay for it. A Machiavellian plot if ever I saw one.

    Obama’s cowardly act of using the ‘children’ to further his agenda to ‘fundamentally transform the United States of America’ into a third world communist country is the highest form of treason. He should receive the ultimate punishment. He is reducing all of us to the lowest common denominator. The middle class will be forever destroyed after the full implementation of Obamacare and the flood of third worlders. It’s unsustainable!

  2. Reading the above tag “ISIS: We’re coming for you Barack”, I found this humorous comment.

  3. Jeb Bush must be drinking or something. He says send them home?

    And not one dime should go to this effort. The border needs to be secured or closed with whatever law enforcement power is available, the families, children, gang members, murderers, rapists, and others needed to be rounded up placed on buses, equipped with security and medical personnel and returned to their countries. What happens to them after that is up to their families, their country and the non profit, charitable organizations either in country or who operate on an international humanitarian basis. Personally I would like the UN building in NY cleared out and all the tin dictator phony “diplomats” assigned to refugee watch.

    But none of that is going to happen. Obama is going on vacation and so is Congress, there is virtually no order at the border other than the care and relocation of these illegals. By the time September rolls around they will have been scattered throughout the US, traceable only by the welfare benefits they will receive and the crimes they commit.
