    The fact that we are being flooded with the illegal immigrants is because Obama dose not care one whit what Americans think. He has vowed to change this country into whatever warped version he sees in his head. They are flooding our borders with political pawns, playing on our heart strings. This man needs to be run out of office now.

    Why is it so difficult to just follow the rules of immigration? Why would any country want to accept thousands of people who show a blatant disregard for rules and policies of the country they are illegally entering? And to use children to justify their means is despicable. And for Obama to do nothing, not even visit the sites is apalling. He’s good at fund-raising, but that’s about it. Ms. Martinez, speak up and push back on this President.
