Will a comprehensive immigration bill be the next big item on the governmental agenda?

During the Government "shutdown", Obama let illegals protest, while trying to keep Veterans out. If that don't tell you that the President is an anti-American, nothing will.

And you both seemed to miss the fact that Obama didn't try to keep them out. Its shameful disgrace.

I'm positive Obama's pals, at La Raza, were well represented, Rj.

That was the fault and only the fault of congress. Not lawyers. Not the pentagon, Not the president. The problem is you are uniformed and live in a bubble. You pump each other full of BS and believe it because that's what you want to believe.

Those weren't "illegals" (although, I don't doubt there were some there), as the Drudge Report tried to mislead. Those were the same people involved with various protests held around the country over the last month.

Political, that is not what would happen. If we were to deport every undocumented immigrant today, tomorrow we would see a huge contraction in the economy.

We have immigration reform. It is just like waiting in line for lunch food at school; you get in line.

@Okie: Not quite. According to the CIA we get 1.15M net migrants per year. The rest of the world's countries that have positive migration rates get 2.88M net migrants per year.

The EU alone gets a million a year (almost as many as the US).

I hope so, we need comprehensive immigration reform. Only once we change our policies to encourage legal immigration will illegal immigration cease.

debate (see the youtube video where Levin told them this was going to happen). they rushed the incomplete bill. The Pentagon followed the law. They did exactly what congress told them (and didn't tell them) to do.

That's still not true, these hardworking immigrants actually put in more into the system than they take out. America needs their participation in our workforce.

Under any sort of reform plan, they would still have to wait a significant amount of time to become fully citizens.

I'm bringing this up because you're going to see a surprising push from establishment Republicans to try and get this through. Their focus is not "illegals". Their focus is to reform the system. They are being pressured by business (their donors)

to make changes to a horribly screwed up immigration system. Yes, Democrats will also want to address the existing immigrant population, but the GOP is being pressured to fix the legal immigration system. If they don't, say adios to the funding

The next big item on the political agenda is how to avoid a citizen's revolt, getting rid of obstructionist political opportunists and hacks.
