This is so funny, I forgot to laugh. Obviously this is to support the push for open boarders if you follow the money. Hilarious really--from the audacity of their proposal.

    Blah, blah, blah, blah… It is infinitely easier for three to agree than for 535. It is vastly easier for billionaires to shoulder additional tax burdens forced upon taxpayers for social services, or worry about falling wages due to an increase of unskilled labor, but not so for the poor. It is also quite easy for them to take advantage and in their favor to have cheap labor. Supply and demand always wins. The problem is not a lack of an immigration bill, but a lack of enforcement of present law.

    If there was less demand for higher education the prices would fall and more citizens could afford the education foreigners that are subsequently deported are now getting. Are they saying there aren't enough American citizens smart enough to get those badly needed degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics?

    “For the future, the United States should take all steps to ensure that every prospective immigrant follows all rules and that people breaking these rules, including any facilitators, are severely punished.”
    What about the present and what kind of message does lack of enforcement send? Why should congress do anything when the executive refuses to enforce current law? What assurance with that track record could they have for the future?

    I agree with them regarding the problems with fraud, but that is what you get when you ask the government to handle things for you. Statists never learn that basic truth. Sometimes I wonder how they got to be billionaires, and then I see it might be because some of them like to create and exploit cheap labor markets.

    As long as the welfare state exists and the borders are sieves there will be no good resolution.

    The Republicans better stand strong and protect those purse strings till after the election. You know if a bill passes a huge chunk of that 3.4 billion dollars is going to magically appear in campaign coffers. Never let a good crisis go to waste!

    Gov, Perry should meet with other state governor’s and see about raising the funds on his own to protect the border. The Republicans can always say they have had enough, they will try to get reimbursed with the next president. In fact, include Hillary in an appeal to see if she would consider reimbursing the states that are willing to help. Obama can’t manage the country. It’s obvious. Start working without him. Ignore Obama.

    What a load of crap. They said that they could put together an immigration reform bill----so go ahead. Don't preach to me. They talked at length about wealthy and educated immigrants. That is not the current problem. They should have been more specific on what they believe we should do with the flood of immigrants coming thru Mexico. Clueless billionaires.
