    News flash Obama people. Obama is no longer president and while you guys were sleeping the youth that are now the age you guys were when Obama was elected are mostly to the right of you. That's America and it's not going to change any time soon. America is for people who in the very least want to be American. Nationalist that are patriotic to about her country are in the wrong country.

    The border will have to be actually secured or the DACA will not pass. The fence/wall is needed in some areas where it doesn't exist or is broken and there should be room for compromise. Also, they can adopt E-Verify to make a deal.

    Given the poor track record that the Democrats have on immigration, we MUST secure the border FIRST! Allowing DACA, or other "immigration reforms" to be move ahead of border security should be a non-starter. Until we can properly secure our borders, anything else we do will have short term results and we will be back in 10yrs with another "immigration reform" policy. Securing our borders and ensuring that the CURRENT laws are being enforced, is the best first step. This gives us better data and time, to develop true immigration reforms that will have long term meaningful impact. Let's do it right, rather than just satisfying the "politicians agenda".

    Trump's "base" still think a wall is the way to go. They even believe that we can find and deport 12 million illegals.

    Amend the 14th Amendment by eliminating the "birthright" clause. If the parent is an illegal alien, so too are any and all offspring. We need to stop incentivizing illegal entry into the country and continuing with the nonsense that confirms automatic USA citizenship, by virtue of the location where the birth occurs, only exacerbates the illegal alien problem. We no longer have slaves so there is no need to protect their children.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh snap! Something might actually get done in Congress?

    Trump wants the wall, let him build it...with his own money. He can try to get it back from Mexico later.

  • DistanceMatters

    Since the Great Recession net illegal immigration is virtually nil. It makes no sense to spend millions (billions?) to satisfy American bigotry. Let's deal with the illegals here by continuing to deport criminals, granting work permits for those who pay a fine for crossing the border illegally, and provide a pathway to citizenship for those who work hard, stay clean, and embrace American values.

    If Trump traded non-wall "border stuff" for DACA, conservative brains would explode. Not to worry, they would be small explosions.

    My grand daughter married a boy from Mexico. He came here illegally but has since gained his citizenship along with his mother. What is the problem with these other people doing the same. He was worked in minimum wadge jobs and often forced to endure demeaning insults but now is able to have a job that pays a decent wadge. Don't these people realize that Democrats are just trying to keep these people fearful of being a full fledged American citizen with the ability to file charges with our Federal Labor commission. Congress needs to get off their duff and help get this mess straightened out. Trump is calling them out.

    Improve the border by using technology. This would be more effective and cheaper than some sort of concrete or steel fence. An electronics fence consisting of containment and blocking devices: noise, lighting, and drones.
