And the REAL number of illegals is more likely 14 to 18 million, not the "official" 11.

How do you count "illegals"? Is ANYBODY dumb enough to admit in writing they are "illegal"??

Yeah, all of the thieves and child molesters RAISE YOUR HANDS: _________????

Notice that both parties are interested in convincing the illegals to become part of their vote base. The primary goal of any politican is to be re-elected and to retain power. That a President or Congressman or Senator is now trying to find a new vote pool at the expense of the people who get up everyday, go to work, pay taxes, serve in the military (and die). In short politcians are willing to use the power that we give them to drive us into the ground like a lawn dart for new voters who happen to be felons in the country illegally. So, citizen, your kids are now second class citizens despite you heritage,and their futures are secondary, you are officially expendable and mostly because you sit there and wait you can sit there and take it, you have to be bent over. The American Dream.

If the Republican Party hopes to have a future they better get in touch with the electorate.

Congress and the gelding horse have something in common, they both lack a set of ****s. Congress gave 18 year olds the right to vote but then said these voters are too young to realize the dangers of smoking/drinking brought out the age 21 clause. Congress acts as thou the 14th amendment which came about to legalize citizenship for former slaves is written in stone. This amendment which provides welfare, etc to infants born in USA to illegals can be repealed such as we did with prohibition but Congress does'nt have the backbone to do it.

boxerboy “If the Republican Party hopes to have a future they better get in touch with the electorate.”

The Democrits have an interesting strategy: make millions of law-breaking illegal aliens their electorate. Not surprising, given Democrits are notorious for lack of respect for the law, and might actually work.

Oh brother!

Both parties are corrupt, self-serving sellouts!

The illegals from 'south of the border' (border? what's that?) breed like cats. In eighteen years after citizenship their broods will CONTROL AMERICA! The gringo/gringa of today will be in the 'back of the bus' so to speak.

Better learn Spanish if you want to order a burger at McDonalds. hmmmm.....that's already the case, isn't it.

Hide your wallets and money. Pretty soon the Gov will steal them to support these free-loaders.

As much as I hate this plan it just might be the only option. My major concern is, if the Democrats are the ones to implement and manage this, it will be a disaster and nothing different then now.....They simply can not be trusted, their word is worthless.

CLUSELESS you are dumber than dirt!

• They mostly get low paying jobs and join Obama's MINION of the 47% who PAY NO TAXES. They become a BIGGER BURDEN on the 53% PAYING!!!!

• A lot of the money they make gets SENT TO MEXICO, does not STAY in this country. Another REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH, except THIS time in MEXICO.

Dumb as dirt!

And one more thing: A seemingly ENDLESS supply of CHEAP LABOR depresses the wages for LEGAL AMERICANS! Duh!

I read that Walmarts in North Dakota are paying $17 a hour to start because the unemployment rate is 3% thanks to oil and GAS drilling there.

Supply and Demand.

But in the borders states ruthless employers hire illegals for SUB minimum wage because they are desperate and cannot call the police.

Supply and Demand.

In whose interest is it to increase the labor pool by in excess of 11 million with the stroke of a pen. Think about it. Is it in yours??

Ah! But if they are legal, they cannot be paid less than an American citizen

This is why it is now broken; COMPANIES get away with HIRING ILLEGALS at LOWER PAY, WITHOUT benefits.. The working poor.. THE COMPANIES GAIN!!!

So--illegals are the victims in this situation... They are working, yet must rely on ER for a non-serious illness--they have no Family doctor...

However, we are not only talking of Hispanics.. We are talking about overhauling our immigration system..

Young people from all over the world come to our universities; becoming engineers, physicians and many professionals---yet they are denied citizenship!!

Shouldn't we want to keep the educated???

The people in Washington are looking out for number one. Number one is them while they just might do number two on the public. They profess to treating people fairly. Sure. Just look at how well our Govt. has treated people fairly over the years. Over 300 treaties with native americans all broken by whom? The US Govt. Rounding up of Japanese American Citizens,complete families and sending them to camps under armed guards.These people lost their homes and jobs, just like native americans.I could go on and on, but the point is. Trusting that the US congress will pass a law that is good for the country is no different than saying the US Govt treated the Native Americans,African American,and Japanese American fairly.The congress will do whatever is needed. Yes, whatever is needed for them to get the most votes at the time.

there are more than enough laws already to have a country that is both safe and sound for the citizens of this country...problem is the laws are disregarded by so many and not enforced...

here's a thought,if you want to become a us citizen then serve four years in the military[with an honorable discharge] and then we'll know that you're serious.if not you go back to have to sneak back in since homeland security means nothing here.

@GETACLUE. You have no clue and why are you still here? Have to get the wheels turning to get you sent back to your country.Obozo is not deporting people, he is leaving more people in "OUR" country and you are so frigging blind that you can't see what is happening.What happened to the Americans that crossed the border into Iran? They were jailed. Try going into Korea as an illegal, and you can't illegally go into Mexico. This is why we have problems because of stupid people like you. You need to grow a set and back people that want the right thing accomplished instead of our idiot president Obozo and the politicians in D.C. Just think how stupid you sound!Do you have so much money that you do not care about paying for the illegals? If you have that much money, run for office so you can be an elite politician. NOT!
