Sure would be nice to have a comments section for the measure 1 debate. The editorial says it is "highly unlikely" this measure would impact anything but abortion. I say THEN WORD IT THAT WAY dum kopf.

Community Communist is more like it when referring to James Lien and if he really nailed it, Obama should have received the message 2 years bf now.

Is it time for the Minot Daily News to update the Opinion Section to display the latest poll question?

Yes, long overdue.

No, doesn't matter.

What's a poll question?

Under "Community Columnists" you can find a 29 Jun article by James Lein where he wrote today's news on the terrorist fight. Jim nailed it 2 months b4 it happened.

'The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living."

sort of what I say about ND these days... More people came here looking for money than came looking for work. (describes politicians too)

Are those Republics trying to steal our chains we use to keep our Democrat Party voters on our plantations?

but when it connects in legend's mind that the illegals are consuming the liberals food and energy portion leaving him with less to have for himself...he may not be so charitable.

Never mind the influx of immigrants; legend is just concerned about a Texas governor.

Lets trade rove, bachmann, rush, palin, reid, walker, and their cohorts for central American refugees. Only one group matches the invitation on the Statue of Liberty. Oops, add clivan bundy 2 the first group.

If the southern states would stop hiring hiring folks without legal passes; the problem would not exist. Those who promoted iraq now want to ignore children running 4 their lives.Follow the money; the refugees have little.

The Democrats are wrong about the border.

It is not secure. It is a sieve.

"...W.W. Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act..."

So all the people, very young to young adults, are supposed victims of trafficking?

That is what the law was to be addressing.

Do tell, centerish, how all the youngsters at the border qualify under this law as victims of trafficking. Can we count on you for the facts?

Give me your tired, your poor... your weak, your malleable, your sexually exploited minors, your sexually exploiting adults, your grifters, your gang members... A whole new generation of future citizens beholden to the Democrat party.

What a brilliant strategy! Import new voters! I don't know why Democrats didn't think of this years ago. We've had the Motel 6 of border crossings for quite a few years now. The only thing we've been missing is the Tom Bodett to do the advertising.

Obama is our Tom Bodett.

"Come to America. We'll leave the light on for you. Oh, and um... We won't send you back if you enter illegally. And we have healthcare... and food stamps... and housing assistance... and Telemundo..."

"While the United States received around 85 percent of all applications for asylum, the UNHCR report also found a 435 percent increase in asylum requests from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras in other countries — Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Belize.

This isn’t a new trend. CBP has seen an effective doubling in apprehensions of unaccompanied minors from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras for the past few years — even before DACA. The number jumped from just over 4,000 in 2011, to almost 10,500 in 2012, and 26,000 in 2013. This year the current number stands at 39,000 for the same three countries." These people are fleeing: Why- next page-

"give me your tired, you poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" Where did I hear this before? But, what is the name of that law that was passed almost unanimously by the House and Senate in 2008? "The W.W. Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act of 2008." So, this is a bad law or there is no reason for the law? These people are just flooding the US and we can use this as a political foil instead of working on solutions. Following are some c/p facts on the situation. Take note of the increases in requests to other countries. Maybe if the immigration bill in Boehnor's desk were allowed to be debated in the House, a solution could be worked on. But the "do-nothing" House still does NOTHING.

DakotaBorn, I am one of those who's noticed the decades-old sieve at the border. It is the fault of those who would erase our borders if possible: globalists whose goals are not as easily met with a US interested in its sovereignty.

Yep, Republicans and Democrats alike.

So should we practice isolationism? No, but enforcing existing immigration laws would have been appropriate for some time now.

I give credit to those who've entered this country legally (good for them!) and give no credit to any who perpetuate illegal immigration, for whatever reason.

IF we are a country of laws, we should see them at work in border security and legal immigration. If laws are created to circumvent a secure border and to promote illegal immigration, that's a bad law that was passed. Yes, even in 2008.

No documentation, deport - just like it happens in most developed countries all over the world.

DUH

So PJinfinity agrees with those quotes so skillfully c/p'd, and has already phoned any and all Democrat representatives from his/her district/locale to let them know that spending needs to be curtailed?

Really and truly?

Well, I'm a believer...
