I agree. I would give Bush the same grade I give Obama. A big fat 'D'! Bush started building a fence, and Obama stopped it. The line that the left use that fences dont work is another failed argument. SanDiego used to be one of the biggest border crossing points for illegals. So they built a fence. Then illegal immigrant border crossings PLUMMETED! They started crossing elsewhere, but at least it helped the people of San Diego.
So you build a new fence where they are now crossing, and make it more and more difficult for them to cross! You supplement the fence with border security, and that will reduce the number of illegals.
I am no longer in favor of giving amnesty or worker visas to the 25-40 million illegals here now. If it was 5 million, then I'd be ok with granting worker visas, but not 25-40 million! We DO NOT HAVE THE JOBS for 25-40 million illegals! Look around your communities, tell me they arent now taking blue collar jobs that are desperately needed by Americans who dont go to college!
They arent just picking fruit anymore. They are taking construction jobs, auto jobs, restaurant/food service jobs, factory jobs, etc.
We also shouldnt give citicenship to illegals who sneak over and buy houses, because what will happen then, is the dems will start programs guaranteeing home loans to illegals in order to get more of them here, which will bankrupt us!
We want the truth about Benghazi, not a cover-up!
