I listened to President Barack Obama's speech on immigration and agreed to most of it, but not all. Nothing should be done until the border is controlled.
It was amazing how much clapping and cheering people did when he told of the great things immigrants have done for this country, starting businesses and so forth, but he forgot to mention that these were legal immigrants, not illegals.
When he said the illegals would have to pay taxes, pay a fine, learn English and go to the back of the line behind legals, cheering stopped, and there was very little polite clapping. I wonder why?
