FORT MYERS, Fla --- "I think there should be no amnesty. Illegal immigrants should go home."

Glenice Reed says illegal immigration has become a problem, that politicans refuse to stop. 

"If we said there was no citizenship ever available to these people coming illegally, they wouldn't come," said Reed of Punta Gorda.

According to organizers on social media, the protests are meant to stop the flow of illegal immigrants, many of them unaccompanied children.

"There's no checks and balances, everyone is just coming over on a free pass. And my tax dollars are going to be supporting them in schools, welfare, housing," said Glenn Frederick of Cape Coral.

"There's a legal way. Put into immigration like you should, become an American citizen," said Denny Mitchell of Fort Myers.

Some of the protestors we spoke to, say they aren't mad at the immigrants, but at the politicans they say allow them free reigh, spending taxpayer money, on emergency funding.

"It's the politicians. You don't have a country, unless you have control of its borders. Our country does not abide by these laws, they don't enforce the laws," said Mitchell.

Fighting for immigration, just this month, President Obama said immigration makes America stronger and more prosperous.

Senator Bill Nelson took the Senate floor on Thursday, and asked the Obama administration to increase aid to Latin America to assist the war on drugs, hoping it will cut down on illegal immigration.

Senator Marco Rubio introduced immigration reform in the past, but says the President's recent executive orders on immigration are doing more harm than good.
