They might be illegal here but they are so deeply integrated in the society that deporting them would trigger a collapse of US economy.
REALLY?!!! Source?!!!!

I think the reverse is true! I look at LA, a place I grew up in. LA school district was once one of the best in the nation. Due to illegal aliens, mexicans, who don't graduate high school, it is now ranked 50th in the nation, behind Mississippi! Don't stop there. LA use to have a great emergency room service. No longer, they have had to CLOSE emergency rooms in LA. Illegal aliens use it for medical and don't pay!!! So much for your being "...deeply integrated in society." We can't stand it. Please leave so that our economy can collapse, we would certainly be better off without you!!!
Dude, whatever you're smoking, pass it!

<quoted text> NO, but what would happen is that there would be unskilled jobs available for unskilled Americans, the same people who used to work those jobs. The employers would be forced to pay a fair wage and give benefits and breaks. There would be a sigh of relief at the social services offices, but the cost of some items would go up, because the employers would of course pass their extra expenses onto the consumer. But a collapse...naw.

YOU can bet we will! When the USA has purged itself of all the poison in its system, and there is penty of it, it will look at all the damage and then pick up the pieces and rebuild and until we are better than before. That pioneer spirit never dies.

So interesting how you justify your illegal cause by always referring to the fact that we are all immigrants. So what?!!! You NEVER address the fact that you are an ILLEGAL ALIEN, not an immigrant. We didn't ask for you, we don't need nor want you....
Yes, you may be coming over, but you bring nothing...because you came from nothing, your own country doesn't want you except to send $$$ back!How does it feel to always be at the bottom of the barrel begging...with no respect, nada?!!!
Question: When are you guys going to get something new? The Si puede didn't work, you need a new line...

Is that so? So why are states taking matters into their own hands since the Feds continue to look the other way? What is broken is the fact that certain idiots refuse to enforce the laws.

like you saw this matter ( immigration reform with 12 milhon undocment already in this land ) is very dificult to cure ( states labs ).

They fail in 1986 last amnesty, one time they did not enforce the law on employers, open opportunity to people came here illegal, still keep many people here illegal after that law pass, and many reason more we have to apoint after 27 years ( 1986-2013 ) las amnesty.

And not forget Republicans fail to do the right thing, they must have to cooperade to fix now

Giving illegal interlopers citizenship is simply not the answer. Paying a pittance of a fine is not the answer. Giving in to their constant whims and demands is not the answer. The first thing that must be addressed is the porous border, then the elimination of birthright citizenship, and heavily fining the employers who knowingly hire illegal interlopers. Illegals can show us that they mean to contribute, rather than take, and the first thing they can do is to stop dipping into our free social services. Do you think they would do that?

Mathematic you are wrong, you do not need many ideas to fix this problem:

1- criminalize employers who hiring next geration of undocumented.

Note: nobody wanna cross the borders if no job to do.

2- those undocumented already in this land will be last ones to get amnesty (1986 republican fail to do the right thing )

3- washington will work hard for white, blacks, latinos, chinese, arabics, indians.......... NOT JUST FOR WHITE GUYS.

That's a laugh, he's certainly not helping the black community...where are the jobs?

http://money.cnn.com/2012/07/06/news/economy/...

He is concentrating too much on illegals, while the black community is hurting because of his misguided concern. He should be more concerned for the legal citizens of this country...period.

Even if the USA has Mexican immigration laws it would not make a difference as our government would never enforce those laws in the first place.

This is another fact that goes unnoticed:
"As to emigration, in agreement with the Constitution (and in spite of what some people may claim or imply), while having the right to travel and migrate, Mexican citizens are not entitled to cross international borders – outgoing or incoming – without valid documents. Meaning official authorizations and travel documents that must be obtained beforehand, once the requirements and conditions established by the Mexican government are met, approvals that are also in keeping with Mexico’s international accords."

Hmmm...
Mexico uses the Matricula Consular card to satisfy the above Mexican law. I know you're inclined to tell me how unreliable that card/ID is but don't worry, it's a Mexican issue.

True, I can't deny the fact that our government will not live up to its end of the bargain, by enforcing immigrationn laws as they were written. So this argument or discussion, if you will, will be going on ten years from now, as I truly don't see any that definitive action will ever be taken to really stem the influx of illegals. I certainy do get tired of all the lip service.
