How much time does Congress need? We've had this problem for well over 30 years. The promised Reagan to support border security in exchange for amnesty for 3 million illegals over 30 years ago, but reneged on the promise then. How much more time do they need?

Face it, that is just another way to say "We're not really interested in securing our border, we'll just continue to give lip service to it."
