Republican Senator: Shut Down The Illegal Alien Pipeline

Today is the day that President Trump is slated to announce his decision on Obama’s lawless and un-Constitutional DACA. What will he announce? We’ll see. Tom Cotton has some ideas

(Washington Examiner) Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, who after the departure of Jeff Sessions has emerged as the Senate’s leading immigration hawk, says he would support the legalization of all current DACA recipients — nearly 800,000 of them — if Congress would at the same time pass measures to protect Americans workers from the effects of that legalization.

“We ought to take care of them,” Cotton said in a telephone conversation Sunday, noting that DACA recipients arrived in this country illegally “through no fault of their own.”

Again, this brings up the notion of what to do with the parent(s) who brought them. Do we reward the parent(s) for breaking federal law while bringing their children who are now “entitled” to some sort of legal status through “no fault of their own?”

“In any legislative fix, I would like to see them receive a green card,” Cotton said. At the same time, he continued, “We ought to recognize that giving them legal status has two problems. First, it creates a whole new class of people who will then be eligible for a green card and citizenship — namely, the extended family members of those who will receive legal status who can, through chain migration, get legal status themselves.”

“Second,” Cotton said, “it will encourage more illegal immigration.”

    Let the parents stay but never allowed to become citizens. Let the dreamers stay and become citizens after graduating from college and teaching elementary or secondary education for 5 years or a six year hitch in the military or peace corps.

      Under NO circumstances should law-breakers be REWARDED! Prosecute to the fullest extent those RULE OF LAW/CONSTITUTION VIOLATERS–congressmen and other officials who have supported this blatant ANARCHY, within the statutes of limitation, no matter how high up their offices. HOW DARE THEY TRASH THEIR OATH OF OFFICE and get away with it…Also, Mark V has some valid ideas as to sanctions that must be considered in view of JUSTICE!

When you count those who came as visitors and never left, those who lied and said they were students and didn’t go to college and never left, don’t forget the terrorists, and those who came for one visa or the other and never left, etc

    • Jim Misaros

      • MARYANN33

        Send the kids home as Americans do not want them here and we are the real citizens of America although the left would love to change that…How did America get so very very stupid….

      Judge Roy Moore is violating judicial conduct by donning a black robe depicting him as judge campaigning for a legislative position. This does not matter even if he is retired or quitting his job as judge if he is permanent or on call judge. “1) Candidate for office. A judge shall not become a candidate for a federal, state or local nonjudicial elective office without first resigning his or her judgeship. Sessions should sue this judge right now before he poisons the position of judges.

    Send them home. US has an immigration constitution. People have to enter legally and not be on food stamps, unemployment, other monetary subsidies. Aside from this,it deprives American citizens of rightful jobs that illegals are not filling. What happened to e verify? Obama was a dictator and did not follow the US law. He let in all these illegals so they could illegally vote for the Democrats. Well, now the illegals are caught in a trap. Charity begins at home for American citizens, especially those that have graduated from school and are seeking jobs. Send them home and let them get in line. US cannot worry about the whole world. US has to worry about American citizens and their lives, if they can get jobs. It is a sorry situation when a president breaks the law and makes his own laws as Obama. This is unheard of. That is why we have Congress to pass legislation and Congress did not pass the Dream Act. Glad we are rid of the very wealthy Obama. Wonder how he got so wealthy???

    • Celestial119

      Obama should be investigated for his extreme wealth after 8 years of office on $400+K salary.

        He got a HUMONGOUS allowance from SoreASS!!

      E-Verify exists, but it’s only being used for NEWHIRES. That way all the millions of illegals who have been illegally working at jobs for decades get to keep working at those jobs with no consequences. Americans need to Tweet their elected reps and senators and DEMAND that E-Verify be used annually for EVERY JOB except those in Agriculture. Why exclude those jobs? Because first of all, most illegals who work in agriculture already have work permits, and secondly, Americans don’t seem to have any interest in working in agricultural jobs. Blacks used to, but once welfare was available beginning in 1965, that ended.

        ” Why exclude those jobs? Because first of all, most illegals who work
        in agriculture already have work permits, and secondly, Americans don’t
        seem to have any interest in working in agricultural jobs.”

        Two big errors

        First if they are ILLEGAL they can not get a LEGAL work permit so unless you are confusing LEGAL work visa entrants with illegal entrants there are no LEGAL WORK PERMITS.

        Second MANY Americans would work in agriculture if they PAID a decent wage many especially if hiring ILLEGALS do not.

        The federal government has spent years trying to destroy ALL AGRICULTURE in this nation that did not directly benefit some politician. From REGULATIONS or LAWS prohibiting families from working together on their farm because some POLITICIAN can not accept that people under a certain age are CAPABLE of doing so to EPA BS that tries to seize control of all their land over a TEMPORARY puddle of water they FALSELY labeled as NAVIGABLE waters.

    • MARYANN33

      Defund all Daca and send them home…Get Jared and Ivanka soft touches out of our White House now…They are trying to lead Trump astray into their positions as the democrats they both are..Ivanka rejected Jesus when she married a Jew and converted.

  • apzzyk

    He has failed to notice that during the past 6 months the number of illegals being arrested at the border has dropped, so they are no longer available to be counted among the deported, so there will be many fewer illegals forming families in the US. The problem with deporting those who were protected is that they did not identify themselves to take advantage of the temporary amnesty freely, but just gave it because it was required, so the use of this information to deport them would be the ‘fruit of the poisonous tree’ and make them almost impossible to identify, and if they were deported the deportation would just cause chaos among their friends. Then there is the lack of at least 50% voter support for all of the deportations. In order to have an effective program of deporation requires community support, and Denver has just become a formal sanctuary city where local enforcement is banned from cooperating with ICE, and will also do what it can to block the deportation of all illegals. How would the detention center in Aurora CO like to loose public utilities?

    • Mark Green

      Take all Federal Aid from State and City Government. Arrest all State, City Government officials that state and vote for sanctuary status. Arrest Police Chief that do not Follow State, Federal laws!

      You will not see a Sanctuary State, or City if this happens.

      Last open up all Police Chiefs, Sheriff’s and local and State and Federal officials to Civil law Suits by Family and Victims of crimes commited by illegal Alliens!

  • America has given the so called dreamers a great education and experiences here in America. They should proudly go back home to Mexico and help make their homeland a better place to live.

    • Bill

      I don’t believe that all of them are from Mexico. There are also some of the roundabout (those who ran around and came in thru mexico) sneaky ones in here too.

      Ya get a job with the drug lords!! They could be enforcers or prostitutes and make their own change!! LOL!

  • Bill

    AMERICA should be sending all of the current members of congress packing. They have been in “office” for too long and have learned how the system benefits themselves. Besides, where was cotton when barry was railroading “his” laws through the system. Look where we are now. No matter what President Trump does or attempts to do, the lame brained dems are going to stand in his way or “blame” him for the cluster that presently exists. Toss the lousy actors to the wolves. This country does NOT operate on pity. WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.

    They should send the parents an kids back they are all illegal. Why do ppl care more abt other ppl from other countries than abt us. These ppl come here illegally and get more help from gov than the ppl that surport these parasites.The american ppl first. Send all illegal immigrants back to were they come from.

  • Jmanjo

    Time for the illegals to face reality. They entered illegally and either brought their kids or had them while here. That doesn’t make them legal. You don’t catch bank robbers and let their children keep the money!

    • MARYANN33

      Hundreds upon thousands of girls walk across that border in
      So Calif to have babies in America…totally sickening…how dumb can we be. Mexico does not want their class of people in their country so they send them to ours…We will not accept them either.

  • Stroman

    These people are over whelming are system we can even take care of our own citizens.

  • ivdad

    Give them amnesty and their parents will get to stay, their grandparents will get to come in, as will their uncles, aunts, cousins, the chain migration will intensify. And if you think these people will not gain any public assistance, you are sadly mistaken.

    • MARYANN33

      I have seen it in action…All the relatives of Muslims moving her on one marriage certificate to a Citizen here…She has also legalized Mexicans through marriage…Dangerous woman.

  • ReaperHD

    Let these Illegal Alien Parasites go back to where their parents brought them from and let them fight and help the people they left behind make a better life for themselves and educate their country men on the better ways to live. We The People here have paid to educate these people and more than likely WELFARE and FOOD STAMPS along with SEC8 HOUSING we paid for and then these IGNORANT POLITICIANS we have also send their country FOREIGN AIDE which is usually MILLIONS if not BILLIONS. How many F&*KING times do we have to pay for these PARASITES. Just heard that a Senator is so worried about DACA there will be a vote, really I’m surprised they already didn’t have a vote as they worry more about ILLEGALS than they do Americans.

  • Ischgabibble

    Only way to shut the illegal alien pipeline down is to shut the Demotards down come November 2018 and ship all the illegals back to their countries where they belong.

  • Mo

    What part of “ILLEGAL” do people NOT understand? Regardless of them being brought here by their parents, they are criminals and we do not reward criminals. obutthead has already rewarded them enough, we have more than likely paid for the education in our public schools without any taxes collected from their parents who brought them and are here ILLEGALLY as well. More than likely we have been paying for and are still paying for their healthcare, driving the costs up out of control. It is time for the FREE RIDE to come to an end, we taxpayers are sick and tired of supporting ILLEGAL ALIENS.


    Washington DC has to quit pussy footen around, deport them all .

    • MARYANN33

      We have Trump who is being slowly poisoned in his mind by the left in the
      White House…We have to get our concervatives giving him councel..His kiddies are snowflakes too.

  • ScotWarrior1066

    Americans and veterans before any illegal. Saying that the illegals are here through no fault of their own, is like saying that when a drunk driver hits, and kills, two people walking in the middle of the road, those two died through no fault of their own. Illegals are legal because they are here illegally. The parents, children and family members should be sent back to their native country period! If you wish tolife in tha US, immigrate through the laws of the land and not by sneaking in and never paying taxes. We have laws for a reason and you can bet your last dollar that if you are caught in mexico illegally, you are going to prison. Just ask the Marine who was imprisoned a couple of years ago for making a wrong turn.

    I believe it is an issue mostly for the democratic party, it was thier Potus that illegally allowed them in, let them scroung for $ to take care of them, get rid of Obamacare, free cell phones, free school lunches, what ever, If the Democrats want this to happen let them make cuts to thier programs to subsidize them

    The Dems want an enlarged voting base. They could care less about these “dreamers”

    • cathy

      I thought the dreamers were to enlarge their voter base!


    Tom Cotton has shown many times now that he is no concervative…Ask We the People, who’s country this is? We say no to these unwholesome kids who have not been checked out but only said they checked their background..Get them out of here..America is a wholesome country and these types do not fit…Know that for sure…No right to be here at all..Give America back to the people who love her and fought for her.

    That does not stop other nations from IMPRISONING or worse people that did so in their nations for example the American students that crossed an UNMARKED border while hiking in one country it was not their fault the border was unmarked they were arrested and charged as if they were spies for nothing more than not realizing where one nation ended and the other started without any kind of marking much less signs marking the border. - 2015 | Privacy Policy
