    Close the porous border with Mexico now!! Severely restrict immigration into this country. Take care of the citizens of this country first and foremost. Elected representative have a great responsibility to the US CITIZEN to govern responsibly, not irresponsibly on the issue of immigration. Too many people have come into this country illegally for too long.
