President Obama needs to prove to Americans that his and Congress’ first order of business is securing our borders. He needs to prove to us that he and Congress will enforce the laws before doing anything else with immigration.

How do politicians know whether illegals really want to become citizens? Illegals need to be questioned about this. If they don’t wish to become citizens — with all the responsibilities citizenship entails — we need to send them back to the country they came from. If we are releasing prisoners from foreign nations, they should go directly back to the countries they came from, not back into American society.
