I pay my taxes, I pay for my health care and vehicle insurance and I also pay yearly to have my children in public schools.
For Joe illegal down the street, the government pays for his health care, his health insurance and his children's education. Not to mention he is on welfare and his kids lunches are paid for. Why? Because his employer pays him in cash to a SSN that has been stollen form a 10 year old and he show little to no income.
Where does the money come from? You guessed it. You and me and our hard earned tax money. So not only am I putting my own children through school and paying for life, but I'm paying for Joe illegal to have good on his plate, health care, education for his children and he doesn't even have vehicle insurance so if he wrecks into my car, guess who pays for that?! I think we all know the answer, and I for one am tired of the governments handouts to those who are not even here legally.
You want to cut the deficit so you can go to work on cutting the actual debt? Stop paying for all the stupid entitlements to people who are illegal! Last time I checked, the word illegal means you are breaking the law. When I break the law, I am fined or put in jail and can't get off the hook using the profiling or race card.

To give you guys a little insight into the world of DHS that you may not know much about...i actually work for the branch of DHS called Federal Protective Service (it's basically the police department within DHS)...years ago, we were all a part of ICE (immigration and customs enforcement), and under that branch, every officer, special agent, detective, inspector and patrol person was responsible for ALL issues that fell under the vast ICE protocol...
Then when the Obama administration came into office...the department was separated, FPS was no longer a part of ICE, and many other pieces of it were segregated into their own little isolated departments, and then the responsibilities were divided up...and only the remaining portions that fell under ICE were any portion of border/immigration enforcement.
Now i have tons of theories that i could bore you with as to why...but i won't, because I can tell, for the most part, that most of us here are of the same mind in this issue, and you probably already think what i do...but it begged the question...why disband a central force that allowed for so much coverage on the issue, when the problem is growing more massive every day...and then replace it with a smaller group, making it both less efficient, and more costly to the tax payers...
One starts to think that maybe the government itself has no real plan to stop illegal immigration at all...but that's a can of worms that i'll leave for another day...

My hat is off to you for doing the deed every day... I have friends and family involved in law enforcement... it's tough dealing with this crap when your hands are tied... still, I appreciate your effort. Thank you.

Personally, the only people i see as deserving thanks outside their pay checks are fire fighters and soldiers that see battle (or directly support such) when it comes to federal/state employees.

Thanks for your effort, Sean. At another time and place, my Vietnam homecoming was a lot different. I'm glad to see that the people treat our servicemen and women the way they are supposed to be treated. That also goes for law enforcement and firefighters, too!
