    The humanity that it is serving are the companies here in America that exploit the labor of migrants. This border crisis to begin with is an instituted program by the republican party that wages war on the average American and wages and unions in general. If you want to stop all this damn illegal immigration get off your ass and institute shoot to kill laws at the American southern state borders. Hell let americans prosper for a change. The main instrument of the republican party to diminish the middle class in America has been the war against wages instituted by the republican party that begun with Reagans firing of the air traffic controllers. The recent uproar in the republican party about President Obama’s recess appointments is because the appointments were to the labor boards and they view that as a threat that would diminish a company’s bottom line by putting forth policies that would raise the wages for labor.

      Democrats have controlled the levers of power since 2006. Their policies just aren’t working. Give me back the Reagan economy any day. Thanks for writing.

        Perhaps you have chosen not to think about the midterm elections which put the republicans completely in charge of the house, which has been the main obstacle towards putting forth any government or action, that would be of benefit to the masses of Americans. When examining what has been most detrimental to America it has clearly been the war hogs of the Republican party, This along with the institution of the U.S.PA.T.R.I.O.T Act which abolishes all of due process for anyone, anywhere. There is further valid criteria that needs to be investigated as to whom was really behind the events of 9?11/2001. For those whom can be removed from massive propaganda, this criteria points toward a Republican President, his entire administration and all of the heads of the armed services of America. Perhaps you should do some actual investigating rather tow a party line yourself. I just call it like it is and would be glad to match wits and facts with you at anytime, that you may have credible evidence rather than spin to support your argument.

          Thanks for visiting the blog and taking time to comment. I have a couple of quick reactions. The Patriot Act was passed by a bi-partisan vote. In fact, the Senate passed it 98 to 1. So our war on terror after an attack on American soil certainly has crossed party lines. Regarding your assertion that Congress hasn’t passed many laws in recent years, you’re right. I know you want to pin everything on those dastardly Republicans. I get it. And yet they only control a third of government. Dems have had the Senate for years. They’ve had the presidency since ’08. The Democratic Senate hasn’t passed a meaningful bill in 1534 days. Go talk to Harry Reid and Barack Obama, the guys driving government, if you have a gripe about the paucity of constructive legislation in the last six years.
          Thanks for writing.

            Nothing gets to the Senate unless it gets through the House first, which is where the inaction of the government during the last six years resides.

            Ah yes, all the Republicans fault. I suppose they’re responsible for the Senate’s inability to submit a budget for 3 years, too. Wait, the Democrats control the Senate.

            It makes little difference for the Senate to put forth anything, if it is doomed to failure from the House.
