  1. ship these mf’s back to the desert and the camel they rode in on; along with Obama; that would certainly solve a lot of wasteful spending

  2. They should be immediately deported together with their families,NO MORE IMMIGRATION FROM MUSLIM COUNTRIES, THE SCUM OF EARTH! Another alternative is deposit them as special guests in the White House, I am sure they can serve them halal food.

  3. What about their preschoolers prostitute ring? Is it still running? And the rape gangs? Can you still get dugs there? Where will all their welfare checks be going for their 20 identities? If there is no support, can we send the immense families back?

  4. They need young enterprising men back in the ME besides they know how to deal with them in places like GAZA. Here they’ll just give them a slap on their hands since sending them to jail might mean the State supporting 30people. Deport all them with a lifetime ban from entering the Country.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
