    The administration doesn't matter, but accountability does.

    Someone has to be held accountable. Illegals need to be deported fast. Especially when talking violent offenders. Dragging our feet on deportations does the nation no good.

    Want more holding room? Get ready to pay more taxes, conservatives!

    Why do we always hear this when it is an Obama failure? That and the Bush did it first lines.

    Has anyone in this administration been held accountable for anything? When was the last time someone was fired in this administration?

    Don't know. Registered independent here, and accountability is great because it transcends party. Or at least it should.

    I have no use for hacks.

    What is this thread about?

    Is it about the 36,000 convicts or making fun of liberals/Obama?

    Dump them back to the country they came from.

    They're trying to! They're undergoing deportation proceedings...you know, rule of law and all that. THEN they get deported.

    If they show up for the deportation hearing, what are the odds of that?

    It's a two-fer. It would have been a three-fer, but one was released awaiting its hearing.

    Agreed. But I'm not all that concerned about people working hard in Chinese restaurants and picking fruit in San Diego. Some guy that works a food cart for 15 hours a day to support his family in a respectable fashion deserves some latitude.

    Illegals that are involved in any aspect of the drug trade, gangs, or violence should be deported within 48 hours or sent to Guantanamo to await the legal process to determine their fate. Just get them outside our borders.

    This I agree with, as long as due process is not skipped.

    I don't give a crap where they end up. We have enough home grown criminals. If they come here, they should be prepared to follow the laws or go back where they came from.

    If we had more holding capacity, we could have kept them on ice.

    You know, priorities and all that.

    We'll never have enough room while we're throwing non-violent drug offenders in there in huge numbers. :cool:

    Generally it's because we're trying to lend a broader perspective to outraged conservatives by pointing out that Obama did not invent or originate these policies.

    But it rarely works ... trying to impart some sense of perspective.

    Partisan outrage normally wins out.

    By the same token, why do we always see so much seething outrage over things Obama has done, that have been done repeatedly for decades by numerous others, even things that are standard.

    Surely, it's not an agenda at all. So what is it?

    Go to http://www.cbsnews.com and in the search area type in 36000. I is currently the first one on the list.

    And you will see it more on the conservative sites as the more liberal ones prefer not to write about things that will make the left look bad.

    But, actually, my browser's security settings disallow whatever cbsnews.com is trying to do, so, it isn't loading.

    Perhaps the story will show up somewhere else.

    What about due process?

    I have to say I'm not against the deportation of criminals after the end of their sentence. We do it here - http://www.prisonersadvice.org.uk/DOCS/INFORMATION/FOREIGNNATIONALS.pdf
