Ever since the 2012 election and the thorough defeat of Mitt Romney, many Republicans are reacting to the overwhelming trouncing from the Hispanic community by supporting immigration reform that enables illegal immigrants to remain in America.

The fact that 11 million people illegally entered the U.S. represents a complete and egregious failure of our elected representatives to uphold their obligations to protect the border. Now these elected representatives, such as Sen. John McCain, are attempting to cover up their failure under the banner of “immigration reform” and expect the American people to go along with this failure with impunity.

The correct response to the mass lawbreaking is deportation. Bending at the knees on this serious mess, this nation succumbs to its incompetence, fails to uphold the rule of law, sends out the wrong message to future lawbreakers and places a huge financial burden on America.
