Illegal aliens self-deporting....
Perhaps because we're going to stop paying people to not do the work they came here to do, and those people who wasted every opportunity they had will have to take those jobs to eat and have a place to live.
I'm not in favor of that. I think every illegal alien WORKING should get a H1b work visa.
... and that's all. No path to citizenship implied. Just the opportunity to work here and support their family THAT LIVES IN THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.
The path to citizenship remains unchanged. Any immigrant will have to go through the same process that every other LEGAL immigrant had to complete.
Then, we'll see how Obama's base feels about not taking advantage of every opportunity to become self-reliant, like has been their history for more than a generation.
First, we're going to stop paying people to not work.
That, by itself, should significantly help reduce the grotesquely obese deficit you Democrats created.
The Bush approach. Give them all work permits.
Yep, gotta give those corporations cheap labor.
