What do you think is the future of this country, based on current border activity?
Please, keep in mind that children are wanting to get caught crossing. Now, think of how many people are coming here without being caught. The laws state that we can take in people from other countries, but there is a limit to the number allowed here from each country. Mexico has shown through out the past that they want their land back as well. Lastly, Obama invited illegal aliens to the White House. So, I beg you, do tell what you see for this countries future.
Estimates of total illegal immigrants present is down under Obama. We took in a half million refugees in the previous three years. Did you know that? And that says nothing about other immigration. Most people don't know that. Most people don't even notice. Why? Well, because we are an enormous country, in size, population, and wealth. The influx of children is a relatively SMALL influx. It is straining resources only because those resources are small. No big deal. If you think the world is ending it is because you are listening to the ridiculous hyperbole of the right and you picture a gazillion plague zombies storming the border.
This is a minor problem. It is perfectly solvable. It registers maybe a 1.5 on a scale of 10. Just relax.
So what do I see for the future. I see a group of people saying the same story that has been told since the beginning of time. A group of people of privilege terrified that terrible "others" are going to destroy their way of life. Same story told by Hitler. Same story told about letting women vote, freeing slaves, etc. The story has always been wrong. In part because the privileged over-inflate their importance and in part because they under-value the Other.
These people always lose and eventually fade away. That is our future as well. In fact, I think they have already lost and many are starting to realize it. They still hold the chains, but it is a thing now beyond their control and honestly I think it scares the crap out of them, which is why so many of them are completely unhinged.
300000 illegals entered the country since April, according to Obama's co-religionists at the NYT.

Deportations under Obama are not down. In 2008 there were over 8000 deported, that number fell to just 1669 in 2013.
Obama cooks all of his numbers, the immigration figures are no different.

Confidence that government is responsive and effective is fading fast. Mexico and Guatemala are purposely facilitating this migration. The limits place on legal immigration mean nothing as those laws are ignored by our President regarding illegals. Hispanics are encouraged while Africans and Asians must wait in the cumbersome legal immigration system while MILLIONS jump the line. These legal immigrants have no advocates and are not members of the favored race.

Given all of the very justified concern lately about the dangers and related ills of illegal immigration, I thought we should take a moment to recognize the many benefits and historic importance of legal immigration and successful assimilation. I believe it is and has always been an essential...

The plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty reads: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"Is this still valid?

I have seen a lot of posts made of late against the so-called illegal immigrants from south of the border. I have also heard a lot of smack about how we should be helping our "wonderful veterans" instead. Really?Hear Ye! Hear Ye! I am one of those wonderful veterans. (1974-1981) I am a...
