Go Obama. Keep the GOP off-balance.
Debt Ceiling: Ignore GOP bluster and make them do their job..
Gun regulation: Proceed forward with closing background check loophole and limiting high capacity cartridges as the people demand.
Immigration: Apply common sense.

What a great year this will be!

I would need to see the law before I could voice an opinion on this.  We hear often of how impoverished illegal immigrants are, but the article mentions paying back taxes and other hoops to jump through...what is the time period for this?  Do they have the rest of their life to catch up making payments while the IRS charges them interest etc., 11 million people that should come to a tidy little sum, is this an effort to gain funds for our coffers by allowing them to buy their citizenship?  Very interesting approach, closing the door after the cow has gotten into the house...the idea is to have an E-verify system for anyone else who wants to work in this country after this sort of amnesty...if they can do it after, why can't they do it now, and why haven't they done it before...the government of this nation really thinks the people of this nation are stupid...that's all I can say.  Unbelievable.

This nation needs to get back to the notion that all should be allowed the freedoms that we hold. Policy should be to get the idea of illegal out of it, anyone should feel that they can come here to compete for employment, and someday become part of what we enjoy. Conservatives should embrace the influx of people that are willing to work outside of union influence this is beneficial for all citizens. What is the issue within the conservative ranks is the fact that there are so many that are already out of work how could we allow outside citizens to compete for those jobs. I would quickly point out that employers would rather hire within the ranks of citizens if it was profitable. So long as the social security, medicare and other insurances take from the profit margin, employers will look to legal employment of people that don't have to pay into those programs.

When? Where and how? Nonetheless we can all take the President example and have a little faith.

What is the unemployment rate in this country?

Do we have a huge under employment problem?

It is just simple math..... too many people and too few jobs.....

There needs to be a change to the US visa laws that allow cheap foreign labor to come in and take jobs from US citizens. The US Chamber of Commerce and big business love the visa programs because they can bring in cheap labor, under cut existing wages and have employees that are less likely to complain because they are stuck in a foreign country with little support and few options.

If you want a lower unemployment rate in this country and better wages then let your representative know that LEGAL immigration needs to be tied to the unemployment rate.

Why "highly skilled?" Most immigrants already do what most of us don't want to -- hard physical work.

The only thing Obama could do to put America back to work is to resign.

What if you came home and found two strangers mow the lawn of the aboandoned house?

What if you came home and found two strangers fix the delapitated and abandoned building across from your house; which really has been serving as a drug house?

In many inner cities, immigrants when given ownership of such housing transform the innner city to a model residency.

Amusing to see yet another article on Obama's false guise and outright lies about Immigration while still blaming the immigration reform issues on the GOP. Obama has deported more undocumented immigrants than any other US president in history; More than George Bush did in his first term; More than any other GOP leaders put together.

Even after Obama's latest numbers show yet another record deportation for the year, shattering more records with a whopping 1.7 million undocumented immigrants deported up until November of 2012 and another 800,000 undocumented immigrants are in status limbo.

Here Obama comes with this sham of immigration reform nonsense once again. One has to wonder when my Latino brothers and sisters that voted for Obama ever going to learn that he has zero intention of ever keeping his word on real immigration reform.

We have too many people already. Why are we so lax on THESE law-breakers, while our own citizens are thrown in jail for much less consequential things?

Wow... President Obama in the past has praised Ronald Reagan, and now he's giving amnesty to illegal immigrants like Reagan did. It didn't work the first time... how does the President expect it to work this time?

To Date ~ 7 Amnesties between 1986 thru 2000 to over 6 million illegals.

What has it taught the U.S. Taxpayers? Amnesty doesn't work.

Evidenced by the fact, Jan 2013 = 11.1 million illegals, unathorized to reside/work in the USA, but - are.
