Piecemeal would be fine if the first piece was passing mandatory everify for all employment, housing and government assistance. After a couple years of strict enforcement with heavy penalties I think we could consider the next piece which would be improving our border security and developing a good visa tracking system. It would also be helpful if somewhere along the line we could reclassify lobbying to be what it is, namely bribery. After a couple more years we could address the next piece which might be to cut the number of legal immigrants from the ridiculously high number of 1 million per year to 200,000 per year. We shouldn't be bringing in manual labor people. We should only bring in highly skilled people that can be valuable additions to our country. What we can't do is let business make the decision of how many immigrants we need because they only care about labor cost, not quality or our country. Like Bill Gates once said "I see no need to have any limits on the number of work visas we can grant". Bill obviously doesn't care about America or the American worker.

My proposal is much worse than not at all because it makes them defy everything they believe in. The problem with my proposal is to get the neocon wimps to go along with it. Neocons suck as much as Democrats.

I knew about your name change and I like it, wild child. Pretty cool. Anyway, I know my proposal could never become reality with Democrats or neocons. They're much too worried about themselves to think about the country. I guess I'm hoping for them to fix this problem even though I realize they're only proposing meaningless solutions meant to make it look like they're trying.

exactly, playing the game.obama no longer cares.after all this crap marching, starving, crying,chaining themselves to fences, nothing will change.neither party wants to change it.no amnesty will pass.this will go on and on.they thought they made progress.but they did not.this is the closest it ever came.if it did not happen, it wont.no one will fix it.

The only reform needed is to enforce our current laws, deport them as the current laws dictate and to clear up and amend birthright citizenship. Obama has made it too easy for illegals to remain and take from free social systems never meant for them, and to take jobs from unskilled Americans who need them.
