How can you be so accepting of people who have come into this country with total disregard for our laws and no respect for her people? These people come for vaious reasons, and it isn't always for a better life as their mantra goes. We don't know who these people are and what some of them really want.

I could not agree more. Not knowing who these people are is a problem. Of course all they have to do is allow them an opportunity to legalize themselves and the problem is solved.

Many of them have been here long enough to take those steps towards legalization themselves, but they choose not to. Often, many of them get deported and bounce back here multiple times after having paid thousands to a smuggler over and over again. Why is that? So, money isn't always the issue, now is it?

You know darn well that most illegal immigrants would jump at the chance to legalize their status. Unfortunately until there is some type of reform there is NO path to legalization available in most cases. No amount of money spent would change that.

That is one of the common misconceptions on these boards. Many people think there is some magical "line" people can wait on to adjust their status. It just does not exist.

True, there is no "magical" line, but a line nonetheless, does exist. The fees aren't so astronomical, and the wait can be nerve wracking, but if the desired end-result is citizenship, I imagine it's worth it. So, why don't they take the first proactive step? Why do they wait and/or demand that it be literally handed to them?

Much like money, time does not provide any benefits to people who entered the country without inspection. There is simply no means of legalizing their status. None.

This is what the whole immigration debate is about.
