I continue to be amazed that members of our community openly support illegal immigrants, who broke our laws by refusing to go through legal channels to enter our country. Then when they were provided due process hearings and found guilty, they again (two blatant acts) chose to remain and ignore the rule of law that has helped make this country the destination they seek. This belief in choosing which laws we want to obey will lead us to completely break down as a society and country. There are many examples in history to teach us that lesson.

In the U.S., judges are appointed to make decisions about the laws. Who are such protesters to try and tell sworn officers and business owners to resist cooperation with Federal Law Enforcement?

Support law-abiding legal immigrants by encouraging all citizens to support all law enforcement efforts.

Breaking our laws should have consequences. These illegal invaders must be removed from our great country. No amnesty, no welfare, no health care... just deportation!

You broke in, so you have every right to be here and continue your law breaking ways unabated.

Barack Obama once said to people thinking about crossing the border illegally: “If you plan to enter the US illegally, your chances of getting caught and ***SENT BACK*** just went up.” Reaction from liberals? Why that would be complicit and perfect SILENCE. No protests, no whiny House members crying their eyes out about how evil Obama was for saying that, no staged, phony pictures of dingbat congresswomen crying at a chain link fence, no NOTHING!! Trump orders ICE to remove illegal immigrants who have been CONVICTED of crimes and ordered removed by a valid US court and the liberals have a thermo-nuclear meltdown about how evil Trump is and actually, stunningly, give these convicted illegal immigrants advice as to how to further break US laws. The very laws they were sworn to uphold. They are absolute shameless HYPOCRITES to their vile, empty, American law hating souls. The Dummyrats will not recognize they are on the wrong side of this debate until after next November when Nancy "illegals have more rights than US citizens" Pelosi has to hand her gavel back over.

Let's go with the full text of what Obama said:

"That’s the real amnesty –- leaving this broken system the way it is. Mass amnesty would be unfair. Mass deportation would be both impossible and contrary to our character. What I’m describing is accountability — a common-sense, middle-ground approach: If you meet the criteria, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. If you’re a criminal, you’ll be deported. If you plan to enter the U.S. illegally, your chances of getting caught and sent back just went up.

"The actions I’m taking are not only lawful, they’re the kinds of actions taken by every single Republican President and every single Democratic President for the past half century. And to those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill.

I want to work with both parties to pass a more permanent legislative solution. And the day I sign that bill into law, the actions I take will no longer be necessary. Meanwhile, don’t let a disagreement over a single issue be a dealbreaker on every issue. That’s not how our democracy works, and Congress certainly shouldn’t shut down our government again just because we disagree on this. Americans are tired of gridlock. What our country needs from us right now is a common purpose — a higher purpose."

Remember those days, when presidents could speak in complete sentences?

My point remains that (despite the number of words used) if Trump spoke those exact words, he'd be excoriated for it by the same phony hypocrite sheep who had no problem when Obama spoke them. Trump wants to do what Obama was doing...except, of course, that Trump enacted a policy that stopped illegal immigrant children from being handed over to child traffickers and predators posing as relatives. You know, like the AP reported Obama's DHS allowed to happen to dozens and dozens of illegal immigrant kids. Liberals seem to have this super soft spot for the treatment of children 'at the border', but ask any of them where are the dozens and dozens of illegal immigrant kids that the Obama administration handed over to traffickers and predators? Are they safe, are they alive? The liberals don't care about them at all. Instead, they complain about the measures being taken to keep these kids out of evil hands. It makes one wonder if they are in on the trafficking. Regardless, the liberals are too busy staging fake photos of them crying at a chain link fence, instructing convicted felon illegal immigrants on how to hide from ICE, and flat out lying about conditions at the detention centers. Conditions which were far *worse* under Obama, by the way, but again, no complaints from 'manure heel' hypocrites like Cummings back then, only now. Remember the days when liberals were NOT shamelessly hypocritical about their stances? Yeah, me neither.
