    The issue with immigration is that there is a process to becoming an American. That process needs to be streamlined. Instead of funneling though 50 different govt and state agencies it needs to be clear and consistent. If we make the process simpler and more fluid for the common man we won't have the pipeline of illegal immigrants that we apparently need to count.

    You cannot count illegal aliens that are undocumented unless they commit a crime, are arrested, detained, and arraigned. Actually there are hundreds of thousands of undocumented family members of legal green card holders who have lived and worked in the US for many years. They are not citizens yet they have lived here like legals most all their life. They have drivers licenses, have social security cards, and pay state and federal income taxes every year. Some fell in love and even married US Citizens, These immigrants play double jeopardy every day because they cannot ever be arrested even for a misdemeanor. They are not the problem. They work hard, pay their dues, have families, and are good people....those illegals should be given green cards and allowed to continue contributing to our country's wealth and welfare. The illegals that are the problem are ones who have bee herded to our borders and sneaked in to our country. Someone or ones very wealthy with political agenda offered them safe passage and a guaranteed illegal crossing with a promise they would be placed in welcoming homes and businesses across America who needed dedicated workers willing to work for lower wages. These illegals could not afford to travel through other countries and could not legally enter the USA. So big money arranged government cooperation that allowed thousands to cross the borders undetected. Those that were discovered by Border Officials were at first detained then were released to a processing center and funnelled into US society through Social and Religious Charities (also paid for by big money operatives and our own Government Program subsidies. Border agents tried to return them across the borders they came through...but our agents were stopped from doing their job by Presidential Directive. Thus hundreds of thousands of unaccompanied children from such Nations as Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Continent of South America are still streaming into our country unchecked, undocumented, and totally unaccounted for. Illegals who commit crime should be extradited back to the country of origin in hand cuffs. That will not happen because there are entities within our country that will hide them in plain site and bring more in at increasing rates. Our borders are not really closed. Some Cities and even States give illegals "Safe Haven" making the American Nation party to the crime. This mess is purposefully out of hand. It needs to be stopped by legitimate government and dealt with by the rule of law...not by Executive Order and Wealthy Sponsors in the shadows. Somebody needs to find them, count them, and deal with them appropriately. If an unaccompanied minor child is among them...a compassionate merciful solution must be found and diligently administered. Let no child be left alone to be exploited. That is not the Country we are. These children need to be found and cared for right now.

    They are not counted nor vetted and can and will be a serious problem as the current president and congress steals our Social Security which is not a benefit given to us, but is our money and should never be given to any alien. Our government is crooked and thieves and steal from the working and middle class homes. Business's who hire these aliens must pay for hiring illegals no matter what the reason. Illegals should receive NONE of the benefits of citizens like schools, right to vote, health care, drivers license, or ownership of any of Americas property. This must STOP NOW.

    ABOUT THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ISSUE: So, we aborted over 35 millions people, put millions more people on welfare and tell them they don't have to work along with numerous other federal handouts to people who are physically able to work, and we are concerned with the law abiding illegal aliens who come here to earn an honest living to feed their starving families? Maybe we first need to cut off the never ending government subsidies to able bodied citizens and get them into a job where they can learn personal responsibility and what it takes to be a productive citizen in this country. Then, local businesses would have local and legal labor available to do some of our more menial jobs. M

    I am concerned about early voting. In most states, you need to be registered by a certain date, yet Hillary Clinton was in a few of the states, at which time, people who were at her rallies, registered and voted the same day. My concerns; illegal immigrants in our voting system. These early votes were obtained without proper vetting. I have to prove I am who I say I am. Will you please put my fears to rest, or maybe you can ensure these votes are vetted. Clinton seems to be unsinkable, but why would the laws be so different? Thank You so Very, Very much. You have my vote!

    I mean pretty much what John Wick said, "The issue with immigration is that there is a process to becoming an American. That process needs to be streamlined. Instead of funneling though 50 different govt and state agencies it needs to be clear and consistent.

    You don't count undocumented because they broke the law and therefore shouldn't be in the country.
