    They broke the law, it's not fair to the people that followed the law and became citizens lawfully, all this will do is encourage more illegals to cross hoping we will ignore our laws for them a few years from now like we did for the past criminals,

    How about granting "The Dream Act" to those who stood in line and followed the lawful process to obtain citizenship, rather than handing it to those who have broken the law and are demanding it? Just sayin...

    Laws...we don't need no steenking laws! Laws are for chumps, and that's the view of this administration. He's still playing Chicago Politics , only in the White House. The only laws he has to follow are his ! He's the King of the World!...

    No. Whatever revenue you get from them will be offset by the services they use. They are illegal. Send them back once and if they come back illegally they get the death penalty. Mine the border. Put U.S. troops on the border. Then you would see the invasion of our country come to a virtual halt.

    We need to start packing our bags and moving back to europe then cause I hate to break it to ya, but 90 percent of us are illegal immigrants. I like the term conquerers though.

    The death penalty for entering the country illegally? From your posts on other articles, I thought you were a Christian ... my mistake.

    @Denizen_Kate He is the kind of christian that sets his crosses on fire. He wrote in another thread he wants to repeal the 14th amendment. You know due process, equal treatment under the law. Seems he is against it...

    Actually maybe they should send you out and let you mine the border yourself. It could be like a reality tv show "oh wise one wises ip to the danger of explosives" probably wouldn't last more then a couple episodes, but i'll watch it.

    @sevenSecrets Don't think so. There was no Constitution, Bill of Rights, etc... until white feet hit these shores. I was waiting for a self hating white liberal to throw that garbage at me. Do you think you are the first one to try that? LOL! Next.

    Yes, I would like to see a pathway to citizenship. However 1st preference to be given to those that came in legally whom are still in legal status. We have chemists, accountants, biologists that graduated with student visas that are cleaning dishes, washing cars, working odd jobs because the system will not allow them to work (No offense to these types of jobs) But their potential to contribute to this great nation is being limited...

    @Politicskid ya I agree. Let's put all the black and white illegal immigrants into reservations and give the country back to native Americans.

    I love my small little collection of weapons but I find it a little convuluted that its easier for your average person to obtain firearms than it is for a foreigner to legally gain citizenship into a country of conquere.....cough..illegal immi....cough immigrants

    @jzmhlanga in a sarcastic way yes. We found the new world, slain most of the indigenous population..and say its alright cause we give their reservations tax exempt status.
    Now current policies are more detailed and maybe set in stone, but the root of the problem is us.

    The operative work is illegal. Millions of people came here legally so the system does not need reform, it works just fine. What the people are that came here illegally is criminals. They broke the law just like the guy who pulled the trigger at the Sandy Hook school. You have laws and enforce all of them or live in a lawless society. Can I pick the laws I want to break?
  • #33

    The key word is illegal, they broke the law and that makes them criminals . Put the people who came here legaly on the fast track to citizenship, and deport the criminals

    This is definitely a good idea. More people putting money into the Social Security pot means less problems down the road. An added benefit is that most of these new citizens will be anti-GOP. They'll be able to vote soon and will remember which party supported "show your papers" laws and does everything they can to keep them from legally voting. Good for America, bad for the GOP.
  • #148

    @PNWest I'm for it as well. They're already here. We have to address the issue. But, did you really have to go with all the partisan bullshit? That wasn't necessary.

    Here's a bit to make it more fair, allow them citizenship through the regular citizenship test, but because of their original felonious status, they shouldn't be allowed to vote. Convicted felons, who are natural born US citizens, can't vote; why should they?
  • #149
    !
    I agree. They're here. They SHOULD be paying taxes, and none of this 7 year tax free BS given to some immigrants.
  • #157
    !
    @methinks I probably didn't have to go all partisan on that one. Citizens are citizens and not all convicted felons lose voting privileges. The immigrants you are talking about have never been convicted of any crime - there is no reason to deny them voting privileges. As penance for going all partisan in my earlier comment I won't speculate on why you want to not give them voting privileges.

    @PNWest so you are ok with illegal aliens voting? then what good is the vote when non citizens have it. i bet you are also against voter id.

    Like everything else, our politicians screw it up beyond repair and then sell the country down the road because they can NEVER live by the rules they create. Now is that our goverment at its best or what?

    @MongoAPillager I just wanted the posters here to know. It's still up to Janet Napolitano he/she might not deport her. She has to respect her commander-in- chief, borrac husaein obamaloo and his wishes.....!!

    wow, what a way to prove to the world we are a country of laws.

    let this thing get so out of control by not enforcing laws and then reward those who broke the laws.not to leave out telling the world all Americans citizens are too lazy to work so illegal aliens are having to do the jobs. all this will do which has already been proven is ring the bell for more illegal aliens to flood in and keep the cycle going until we may as well hook up with mexico and canada calling us the north american union.

    I think we already are the north american union. US economy can't survive without immigrant labor or China. Hahaha, and that is thanks to your government, or are going to blame immigrants for that too.
  • #101

    @favefave we do not need illegal aliens labor that is a myth. shame someone would think because others have let them get away with breaking laws for so long they are needed or even owed,showing by their demands that should never be heard by those in office.

    we have great laws in place now the only thing missing is those who are paid to enforce have failed yet collected a check and those who try are sued by a president who has gone against his oath of office.

    NO.
    Rewarding lawbreakers sends the wrong message and only leads to MORE lawbreaking.
    America does not need millions of people who have shown by their actions that they do not respect our laws. These are precisely the kind of folks we don't want here.
    Mandatory E Verify for all employees, end birthright citizenship for anchors babies and no social services for illegals.
    When they find they cannot survive here they will return home, the same way they illegally came here.
    Enough!

    Why should a new ? method of easy imigration be put in place ? More government instead of the law now in place ? Just let the imigrants file for citizenship as it has been for years.
  • #60

    It should be much easier. Criminal record check, if none, proof of employment, and citizenship test, and poof, you take the oath. You claim to be against more government, so lets get rid of all the beauracracy.

    Yes...first identify them by the correct legal definition, Illegal Aliens. I would consider "undocumented aliens," but they are not immigrants. George Bush offered the same plan...a path to citizenship and a guest worker program expansion.
    They should first be identified, fingerprinted, and subjected to a detailed background check. If they are cleared of any criminal activity, they should then pay a fine for illegal entry. Next, they should pay back any welfare they fraudulently obtained. Next they go to the back of the line and begin the process that includes learning English and attending school to learn our history and be tested just as all immigrants have had to do before now. THERE SHOULD BE NO SHORTCUT...NO SPECIAL TREATMENT....NO VOTING RIGHTS UNTIL CITIZENSHIP IS OBTAINED.

    what about those who already speak English among many other languages, have attended your schools and probably know your History better than you, have no criminal conduct, and are not begging on the streets but rather work two or three jobs to support their families.????????

    @favefave Once we deport them we can set up a payment schedule for them to pay us back for their educations.
  • #142

    @favefave Well, how about them? If they are here illegally they are ILLEGAL ALIENS. And, they need to get right and do it starting from the back of the line. They have already proven that they don't respect our laws...why should we believe them until we check them out? Good people? Maybe...good character? Questionable.

    Path to citizenship is relevant only to the extent of what the citizenship looks like.

    We have citizens in this country who were here before it was settled and who helped build this nation and they are seen and treated by the powerful and influential and other privileged of the majority status quo as second class and undeserving of all the rights pertaining to citizenship.

    A new worldwide book/ebook explains the role, struggles, and contributions of immigrants and minorities: "What Foreigners Need To Know About America From A To Z: How to understand crazy American culture, people, government, business, language and more." Endorsed by ambassadors, educators, and editors, it paints a revealing picture of America on numerous subjects for those who will benefit from a better understanding. Immigrants and the children they bear account for 60 percent of our nation's population growth and are 60 percent more likely to start a new business than native-born Americans. It identifies "foreigners" who became successful in the US and contributed to our society. However, most struggle in their efforts and need guidance. Perhaps intelligent immigration reform, concerned citizens and books like this can extend a helping hand.
    Here's a closing quote from the book's Intro: "With all of our cultural differences though, you'll be surprised to learn how much our countries—and we as human beings—have in common on this little third rock from the sun. After all, the song played at our Disneyland parks around the world is 'It's A Small World After All.' Peace." www.AmericaAtoZ.com

    Why do we have to "reform" OUR laws we're not the problem. The problem is in Mexico and that's where we should focus our efforts. Any "reforms" that we make will only enable the corruption to continue and the killings to escalate.

    It's time to hold the Mexican government accountable for allowing the drug cartels to terrorize it's people. Strong enforcement of our immigration laws would pursuade the people of Mexico to demand that their government take action.

    Every day Obama keeps proving the GOP right. We said that a lame duck Obama would be, even worse than his first term if possible. He is much worse and we see his true colors each day pushing an agenda that goes against the majority of Americans. Taxation without representation.

    Legal immigrants yes! Illegals NO! They have already broken our law to get here. We do not need anymore criminals in this country. Why didn't he bring this up in his campaign? Because he would have lost Hispanic votes. In his first two years as POTUS he had a democratic run congress and did nothing so what makes anyone think he's going to do anything productive now. Making illegals citizens is just adding more people to SSI and medicare who haven't paid into the system, along with numerous handouts from the government for more "Welcome to the USA" people. If you do this how many will be going the next day and sign up for government housing, welfare, and food stamps? We can't afford to just ad water and stir to Americanize criminals so that we can say we cleaned up our borders.

    so basically it boils down to rewarding those who break the law with housing, healthcare and welfare. So in essence you are buying liberal votes with tax dollars?
