for over 220 years the USA has accepted immagrants and we have laws and policies in place for people wanting to live here. now we are supposed to not only grant amnesty we are supposed to accept these demands by people that have broken our laws we are supposed to grant them instant access to citizenship?
i say we ship all of them back to wherever they came from and let them apply like all the immagrants from all of the rest of the world. i say to them GET IN LINE! just like my ancestors did.

I agree with you Mike but the situation is so much more complicated, especially for big business and the need to acquire cheap labor to increase the bottom line and reward their shareholders and fatten their parachutes. Isn't that what it's all about? How did you vote in '02? You're getting your right to pray in school, post the ten commandments wherever, abolish flag burning, send teenagers to die in Iraq, harvest oil at will, rape the forests as you trade for amnesty for illegals, unchecked warmongering, lower standard of living, tax giveaways to the ultrarich. You are sleeping in the bed you made!
