Ten officers and agents for United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) including ICE Agents Union President Chris Crane, today filed a lawsuit against Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton challenging the Obama Administration's deferred action Directive and associated Prosecutorial Discretion Memorandum that prevent ICE officers, employees, and agents from fulfilling their sworn oath to uphold the law and defend the US Constitution.

Once again "we the people..." have to do what we can to stop the law breaking by what many of us consider an illegal government. I only apologize that I'm on a fixed income, which the criminals in Washington are doing their best to make more "fixed." Strong words - not really considering the prison sentences that should be meted out to our betters and masters.

regarding Napolitano's comment: children who were brought to this country...If they were brought here as children then they are illegal...get them out of here along with the rest of the illegals. Too many exceptions are made for illegals, which gives them priority over American citizens...we cannot even break a parking law without having to pay the consequences. This is discrimination against American citizens. I read in todays paper that in Miami $120 million medicare funds were used for illegals for the years 2009 to 2011 according to federal health officials. Supposedly there is a system in place to prevent this from happening, but like everything else in this country the system failed to work. Again, someone else taking our medicare money ... Think it will ever be repaid...?

My concern is that making illegals legal just because they are here sends the wrong message to the world. Why should anyone take our laws seriously when even our own president does not? There are more chaos and mayhem everyday because we are divided along moral, political and class lines. At a time when we should come together and stand together, we are being distracted with factional preferences. Let our voices be heard loud and clear. We either stand now for our liberty or wallow in despair because of our inaction and cowardice. Let us determine to send letters, send e-mails, call congressman, but do something now while we still can.

For the life of me, I still cannot understand what is so complicated about reviving our economy, that is if we do not accept the reccomendation of our Senate. We hqave 20 million unemployed, we have 8 million illegal aliens now holding jobs in our nation, that figure changes when we subtract the 8 million from our 20 million, and this leaves 12 million Americans out of work. Now, the Senate wants to add an additionl mimimum figure of 11 million more people to our nation, who will also need employment. Therefore, 11 million and the new additon of the amnesty will still maintain a figure of at least 23 million. The kicker here is that there are many more illegal aliens in our nation than the touted 11 million, possibly as high as 30 millon illegal aliens currently in our nation, holding many more jobs that the stated 8 million jobs. With those figures, our unemployment rate could soar to approximately 50,million people unemployed. While our airhead in Congress do not realize that we would have many more people employed, had we not sent so much of our employment to overseas, off-shore manufacturing locations. Want to make sure that high rate of unemployment does not continue into reality? At eh mid term elections, dump all of the senators and representatives that voted for amnesty. Just think about it and vote them totally out of office and demand that we vote in term limits on all elected positions.

I beleive the GOP in general have given up on the majority. The ones who are complacent, dont vote and sure dont make themselves heard. We have gone to sleep and that Nanny will take care of us. Nanny isnt required to pay attention to sleeping babies. They have found new children to love and care about. Immigrant, illegal or not are screaming bloody murder. Who would you want to buy ice cream for?

The Republicans (Reagan) passed the first amnesty and still do not get credit for it. We were told then that it would never happen again. Why can't we just enforce the laws that we have?

Will some Senator or Congressman please enlighten us poor peasants as to why Federal Immigration Laws are being violated by this administration and is not being prosecuted? This is in fact TREASON.
