    I'd like to hear some opinions... I missed it. The kids wouldn't go to bed without a fight tonight, especially not before 8. Go figure! ;)

    I am skeptical that he really does "get it". He has spent 6 years denying that this was a problem at all.

    He spoke of laws...

    Called it illegal immigration.

    "Comprehensive"

    At least he states that FIRST we must secure the border. (Had to take a drink... He said Terrorist...)

    I don't like the 'worker's permit', if there are already 'too many to deport' we don't need more that aren't in the traditional line. I don't like what I'm hearing about raising the numbers of lower educated immigrants, while lowering the number of more highly educated immigrants.

    If they come here legally, the wages will rise, so will the costs of goods, while we are 'stuck' with those that are uneducated. Lose/lose situation.

    I don't expect the deportation of all these people, I do expect that the border must be secured and I agree that the National Guard is a ruse, which will be removed as soon as it looks like Congress will pass a bill.

    Hinted at English being mandatory but shoulda proposed it as the ONLY official language.
