homeland_security_budget_kelly_41783_c0-211-3917-2494_s885x516The Trump administration last week floated an amnesty idea for potentially 1 million illegal immigrants, looking to find permanent solutions for some of the most sympathetic cases in the long-running immigration debate.

In two days of testimony to Congress, Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said he doubts his ability to oust some 250,000 immigrants from Central American countries who have been in the U.S. for nearly two decades on a temporary humanitarian relief program.

He also signaled that he would keep protecting 780,000 Dreamers from deportation and hoped Congress would grant them permanent status.

“You’ve got to solve this problem,” Mr. Kelly told the House Homeland Security Committee when members prodded him not to deport Dreamers.

    Transgender rights to serve in the military and bathroom bills, you would think that we don’t have problems which need the attention of the legislature, Tax reform, voter fraud, border security, aging roads and bridges (you know things which concern everybody) Also, the Congress is supposed to legislate not investigate. If I was their 1st line supervisor I’d be screaming “Get off your ass and get back to work”!!!

  • obamasucks says:

    Illegal=Criminal. Demoncrat=Criminal. Kick them all out!

  • Cliff Barton says:

    Hey here’s an idea. Deport them. They came here on an illegal order, they don’t belong here. Let them come back legally. Just because someone says they were downtrodden where they came from doesn’t give them the right to come here and sponge off of this country. And you commie libs can stop saying “what you want them to starve”? The answer is no but let them figure out how not to in there own country.

  • Robert Early says:

    Either there is law, or there is no law. We must decide which we want. Illegals are just that: law breakers. Minor children are still in the custody of their parents. If their parents broke the law, the minors go wherever the parents go. Simple. A child born here and has reached legal age (18 in most states) would have the option to stay or go. If we are no longer a nation of laws, then we are doomed as a nation.
    Deport illegals. Period.

  • Tins17 says:

    No amnesty!

  • Mary Eleanor Urso says:

    This really makes me want to curse. Solve the darned problem… NO FREE RIDES… no jobs, no health care, no food stamps, no welfare, no subsidized housing, no schooling for their children. Give them NOTHING! They’ll self deport.

  • Cadfael says:

    Amnesty? How about some wrist and ankle steel jewelry, a nice new orange jump suit, a one way ticket back to the country of their origin, and a swift kick in the butt?! They are illegal invaders, not immigrants and they deserve to be deported and barred for life from re-entry into the U.S. period! President Eisenhower managed to do what all these bi-partisan nincompoops claim can’t be done; a symptom of the deficiency of the liberal U.S. Department of Non-Education’s teaching of rewritten history. They need to look up “Operation Wetback”!

  • George Reed says:

    NO amnesty do it the right way !

  • Jose says:

    Stop “ALL” aide for these ILLEGAL INVADERS who have absolutely no desire of becoming US citizens because they get more aide/better treatment as ILLEGALS than as citizens. Once “ALL” aide is denied, most will either leave or go to work. Going to work and having to pay for a higher education would then make them be in the same situation as US CITIZENS who want to get a higher education.

  • 1SG Retired says:

    Also, If they don’t really want to become citizens then it might be time for them to return to their country of origin.

  • 1SG Retired says:

    If they have been here for a very long time and have made no effort to become legal citizens, It seems they don’t really want to. They might be just interested in whatever they can mooch off the taxpaying citizens.

  • TAM44 says:

    Demoncrats don’t believe in laws, and they approve of breaking them 100%.

  • Floyd Sloan says:

    No welfare eligibility, no voting rights for 12 years and pay a certain % of taxes regardless of income.

  • joleenworden says:

    Congress can solve the problem by revoking the policy of allowing children of Illegals to be automatic US citizens. All Illegals and their “anchor babies” should be deported. We do not grant citizenship to babies of Ambassadors or other Temporary Aliens like students. Use the money saved from illegals on welfare to help our Veterans.

  • Dennis says:

    NO AMNESTY. They came across our border illegally and we do not want them here. If they broke this major law I believe they feel they could break other laws as well. SEND THEM HOME!!!

  • Lajos Markos says:

    here we go again wish 2018 was here mid term election get rid a bunch for congress

  • Walter Flatt says:

    NO ILLEGALS, HOW DO YOU PROVE THEY WILL NOT TRY AND KILL US. WAKE UP IDIOTS.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

  • dude76 says:

    damn Obama holdovers just keep on spring on American and prefer to only protect moslems and illeagal. It’s there way to legalize a invasion.

  • Lori says:

    Kelly needs to go. Amnesty would be the nails in the presidents coffin. His base would be gone. The families that he supported who lost family members would be devastated and feel used by this action. I cannot believe that the president would agree with this.

  • Curtis Jones Jr says:

    Get rid of Kelly. No amnesty

  • Phyllis Handkins says:

    Dreamers?!? We need dreamers? Get some psychiatric help idiot. That’s all we need is more dreamers, like we don’t have enough already. Go find your rock and crawl back under it and give the rest of us a break!

  • Carolann Enkhaus says:

    The so called Dreamers had plenty of time to apply for legal avenues and chose not to so should have to live with their choices and be deported if they break any other laws while the central americans all should be deported ASAP

    1. rockcut says:

      The dreamers are the strength of our country. Kicking them out makes no sense.

      1. Jose says:

        Only one word for you and in Spanish: PENDEJO

        1. obamasucks says:

          That is the only word he will understand

  • Buckeye conservative says:

    There is no reason that the American taxpayer should provide support for these people ! They get public schooling, tax supported grants etc. for college, SNAP and probably housing. Send them back.

  • Bishop351 says:

    Fire him.

  • Jim Strong says:

    Tell Kelly GET OFF THE DRUGS.

  • Reality99r says:

    Unbelievable !!!
    Each and every illegal in the country illegally should be deported and never be given the opportunity to apply for legal status.
    Dreamers also should be deported and then given the chance to apply legally.
    Whatever happened to the law?

    1. Allan Scott says:

      Law? What law? Congress knows of no such law, they’re idiots.

      2. Retired says:

        We had laws on the books that the courts and congress destroyed over the decades .

    2. rockcut says:

      What a closed minded useless comments by you. You hate is right below the surface.

      1. Oldawg70 says:

        Hatred…maybe!? But the comments are based on common sense and logic! What part of “illegal” don’t you understand? What is your argument against “legal” immigration?

        1. rockcut says:

          Yes, catch those trying to enter our country illegally and deport them. Deport any illegals here that have committed serious crime. Fast track all dreamers for citizenship who were brought to this country as babies and know no other country than the USA. Bring out the illegals that have been here for years and have they pay a fine and work toward citizenship. You cannot depart all that are here. It is tough enough to catch those who try to enter our country daily and to round up serious offenders. Period.

          1. Jose says:

            Simple solution: Every citizen (not an ILLEGAL) is required to have a SSN and a birth certificate is the best identification to show where the person was born. How does an ILLEGAL get a “true” birth certificate unless under false pretense which is a crime. Also stop “ALL” aide so they can be in the same boat as most US citizens.

          2. Oldawg70 says:

            OK, I will compromise with you on the children…but there needs to be accountability for ALL that are here illegally! Virtually every illegal has had the opportunity to legally apply for citizenship but chose not to… There are always exceptions to everything but right is right and wrong is wrong…illegal immigration is wrong! Make every effort to find the illegals and deal with them accordingly. There are far too many “bad guys” included among these illegals to just give them a free pass! Our rights TRUMP any perceived rights of illegals…period!

          3. Josh Parker says:

            Don’t compromise. You don’t need to.

          4. Oldawg70 says:

            You are correct Josh…I just had a soft hearted moment! Personally I am fed up with the liberal mindset in this country. Really don’t forsee a peaceful resolution to this madness. Going to be like Vietnam again…hard to visually discern ally from enemy!

          5. obamasucks says:

            Then we must do something about it, like vote the liberal idiots out of office. Don’t just say you will, DO IT!

          6. obamasucks says:

            You are correct, the operative word here is HAD!

          7. Josh Parker says:

            You can catch the “Dreamers.” They are the vocal ones. You can find them on most any college campus taking anti-US courses on the tax payer’s dime. The myth that they are all just a bunch of good kids has been debunked many times. They need to go and if Kelly won’t do it then he needs to go. The only “fast track” they should get is the one back to their country of origin. If they want to blame someone then they need to blame their parent’s who took our laws as a joke and have now put their own kids in this situation.

          8. rockcut says:

            I am suppose to accept your fake dribble. Sorry, I do not buy what you are selling. Take your narrow small mind and your stone cold angry heart and go sell your nonsense somewhere else.

          9. obamasucks says:

            They HAVE committed a serious crime just by being in the USA illegally. What more are the foolish demoncrats waiting for, them to kill their mothers? That would be ok by me!

          10. rockcut says:

            You claim they have committed a serious crime shows me you do not know what you are talking about and shooting off your mouth. Let me educated you:

            Under federal criminal law, it is misdemeanor for an alien (i.e., a non-citizen) to: Enter or attempt to enter the United States at any time or place other than designated by immigration officers; Elude examination or inspection by immigration officers; or Attempt to enter or obtain entry to the United States by willfully concealing, falsifying, or misrepresenting material facts. – Subject to 6 months in jail and a $250.00 fine.

            Plus, claiming they will kill mothers. Again, you do not know what you are talking about: The overall crime rate of illegals are far less that legal citizens !!!

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    Fine. Let John Kelly’s Department fund the amnesty, as the American taxpayer shouldn’t be stuck with this stupid liberal boondoggle.
    Many years ago, Eisenhower’s “Operation Wetback” accomplished the task Kelly deems as “undoable”. Perhaps, in spite of technology improvements, Kelly is just too incompetent to accomplish what was possible back then. Or just too lazy.

    1. Lajos Markos says:

      were you thing they get there money for taxpayer it always on us

    2. Josh Parker says:

      Ramon1710 is correct.
