How about giving legal Americans jobs and educations who deserve it, not illegal aliens who freeload and are a huge financial burdon to American tax payers? Obama just wants to give them free citizenship and everything else so they will continue to vote democ(rat) and force us to have to support them! I am sick of it!! They all should be deported and come here the proper way but not until they repay us for all the freebees they took while here!!

Undocumented people vote? Green card holders vote? It seems to me that if one is undocumented, one would try to keep as low a profile as possible, so that there is less of a chance of deportation. I wish with all my heart that what you wish for would happen. As it is, presently the number of people coming to take those juicy jobs from U.S. citizens is almost nil. Why don't you do a study on just how many meat packer companies and Agra businesses are owned by Republicans, and how many are other than Republican? Who will fill the jobs picking produce? How many people that you know of are standing in line to be farm laborers? .
Perhaps those screaming the loudest about jobs going to non-Americans should also refuse to shop at Walmart or any other company who has shipped our jobs elsewhere. Those are American jobs in China, Bangladesh, the Mariana's etc. let's bring those jobs back, and recoup the American dream, eh? There would be jobs for everyone then, and unemployment would not exist.

Get over yourself, THEY do vote, since the Dems have vemently opposed voter registration. I need to show ID in a bar, to buy a car, to get a loan, to register a firearm, but NOT to vote? Can the Dems NOT see the basic flaw in this? No, they KNOW its wrong, but it does insure them literally millions of votes.

Ignorance is always rampant on an immigration thread. Comprehensive immigration reform is not just for undocumented immigrants but also for legal immigrants caught in a byzantine, antiquated system. We need a newer, modernized system that reflects the society we live in. For example, gay and lesbian Americans cannot sponsor their legally married spouses. That, and a lot more need to be changed.
07:52 PM on 01/03/2013
No plan for immigration reform will be staisfactory that does not begin by outlining steps that will be taken to deal with the 10-12 million illegal residents of the country.
And not by forgiveness of sin.

The part that no human being is illegal .... know who said that Ellie Wiesel, a smarter person than you'll EVER be!

We want to reform to help the DREAMers not the illegals! There are two different groups of undocumented people, don't you dare mix them together as and label them as one thing. I'ts not that cut and dry.
09:35 AM on 01/04/2013
Undocumented means illegal.  Do you think that there is such a thing in country's like China or Russia.  There is a harsh punishment.  We need to protect our sovereignty.

I agree with smurf12. Laws are created to set lines in the sand. ALL these people are ILLEGAL. Note that I'm not saying that our laws are fair. I don't find tax law fair at all! LOL!! But these are the laws, and they must be obeyed. I have no problem with changing these laws. You should contact your Congressmen and petition for a change if you feel our laws are wrong. That is your right as a citizen. BTW... you are a citizen, aren't you?

Interesting, but true - since the inception of NAFTA, Mexico has developed a rather intriguing middle class and a very large wealthy class at the expense of the uneducated poor. Those poor individuals are totally aware that by heading north, they can make enough money to send back home to their equally destitute families. The "illegal" immigrants are for the most part uneducated and desperate. The "drug cartels" mules and such do NOT want to stay here - they make too much money doing what they do. Unless and until the GOVERNMENT of Mexico gets their own act together and levels the playing field there, the uneducated poor will continue to make their way north. Our government needs to WORK with Mexico to change things in Mexico.
05:30 PM on 01/03/2013
bull shit read mexicos immigration law we need to hold those accountable for hiring them to a felony count on each illegal found working and hold them to a felony just like mexico does , you work in construction cause i do and i cant compete making 10 an hour cause juan or hecter can by living with 20 in a house and no worries about food or health insurance, friggin bleeding hearts are killing this country for guys like me who have to work 10 times harder for less money, i bet if they were being hired by computer companies or banks youd all scream bloody murder fast

Jerry, take a deep breath and just help me out ok. I really am interested in two things you said. What is it that makes you have to work 10 times harder? I mean, my god, that is...I'm trying to figure out what you're doing. Also, you said the guys didn't have to worry about food or health insurance. I get the ins. part. But, I don't understand the food part. I know everyone has to eat, just tell me what you mean. I know people get caught up in their passions, and things come out not quite right, but I really want to know your side.

Why not just keep deporting, if we have already removed 10% of the problem, just keep going !
01:24 AM on 01/04/2013
Deportation is slow, expensive, and the biggest flaw of all--you can just come back. Our primary strategy should be to deter unlawful presence. The problem is corrupt politicians have no interest in that.

The immigration reform should not only be centered on illegal immigrants, but maybe first on those who live here legally and contribute their knowledge and expertise for many years and even decades, but still do not have basic rights. If the U.S. wants to stay competitive among other nations it is better to invest in innovations and attract more scientists and specialists, not to alienate them. Support the petition http://wh.gov/QX76 to grant permanent residency to specialists who legally reside, work and pay taxes in the U.S. for more than 5 years.

06:51 PM on 01/03/2013
the petition is not about illegal, but legal specialists, who have to wait for about 10 years with temporary work authorization sitting on suitcases until they receive permanent residency.

I wonder if it ever occured to this ideot that he could push to far. Does he want a civil war? that would probably fit into his plans anyway. I"m sure most people have heard by now that guns and ammo are flying off shelves every where. I had doubts when I heard. So I looked on line and ammo suppliers have sold out most of there inventory.
