    If we didn’t have an open border we wouldn’t be stuck with paying his keep for the next 15 months. But that will probably be a joke, he’ll be out in a month. Our immigration system is a joke. No other country puts up with this and Obama invites them in. How fast will it be before WE are a third world country too. After all that is Obama’s goal.

      You are exactly right. If this government supported open border continues, it won’t be long before we are a third world country. All the morons that sit back and say that it’s OK form them to come here, and feed off our welfare system, pay no taxes, knock up our stupid women, break the law, are blind. All you vermin lovers just look to the future. Look and see how it will be when your children and grand children are growing up, living like rats in a third world country. Think about it….
