Unfortunately I believe that we are limited in what we can focus on. I think that if we proceed with the partisan sideshow of prosecuting Bush admin. officials, healthcare will get lost in the brouhaha.

Border security proposals in Congress could be costly; Bush-era memo could complicate challenge of Arizona immigration law

POSTED: 04:58 PM ET, 05/18/2010 by Jennifer Jenkins

Border security proposals in Congress could be costly Center for Investigative Reporting
The new Arizona law requiring police to question the immigration status of people they come into contact with hasn't slowed policymakers from proposing more immigration measures that could lead to hiring additional border patrol officials. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection's hiring practices have come under fire before -- more than 100 employees have been investigated for corruption since 2004.

2002 memo could complicate challenge of Arizona immigration law The Washington Post
In the legal battle over Arizona's new immigration law, an ironic subtext has emerged: whether a Bush-era legal opinion authorizing state police to arrest undocumented immigrants for violating federal law complicates a potential Obama administration lawsuit against Arizona.

The President's Aunt gets to stay in America so why not all the other illegal aliens. The first thing he should have insured was her leaving due to the fact she was here way past her time limit, and secured our border. Mexicans are not the only ones here illegally. Don't blame the people tired of living in fear from illegal aliens; blame the man at the top. We all know money rules this country. The money comes from the very people who don't live in areas affected by the violence and fear. With new threats against America combined with the attacks inside our borders the time for Change as he promised has passed. The American people deserve to feel secure within the borders of our land. Any other land on this globe, including Mexico, secures their borders with stiff penalties.
