This is absolutely disgusting that these illegals are allowed to just prance across the border while our government uses our tax money to feed them and transport them....all while telling us we need more jobs in this country. I say we send each and every single one of them back to Mexico. I don't care if some of them have been living here for 20 years and have kids. As far as I'm concerned, they've been hiding for 20 years and have done their children a disservice. The parents, the kids, everyone has got to go. Politicians...DO YOUR JOBS!!!
