33 million more greed cards and no border security means if there are any jobs citizens will not do those low enough to hire illegal aliens will just hire more illegal aliens to replace the new citizens.

this is all nonsense and does nothing to help the country or her citizens.
what happens when you dump more people into the job market,wages go down. if you want wages to go up you cut back on the job pool leaving citizens as the only option for the job market,that will also bring back the middle class.

as it stands workers have very little if any control over pay,when the employers have a small pool to chose from it puts the wage bargaining back into the hands of the employee.

getting rid of illegal aliens and cutting back on legal immigration will also help our kids,less kids in the class mean teachers have more time for each student. there is no need for any moreimports.

Every job they take results in one more unemployed American. That means one more person the government (taxpayers) get to support. That's good for the Democrats because that's the type of dependence they depend on to create more Democratic voters. They're too fiscally irresponsible to care that it's costing the American taxpayer a lot of extra money that we don't have. Then they try to justify their thinking by getting totally ridiculous articles printed, like this one.

Of course the economy would benefit. Lowering wages for all workers and increasing demands for goods causing increased prices will naturally push economic numbers up. Corporate profits will increase when demand increases and wages decrease. The other side naturally will be an increase in wealth for the richest 1% and a decrease in wealth and the standard of living for the 50% who work. The 49% who will see their entitlements remain the same in the short term but eventually when the 50% who work can no longer support the increasable tax burdens caused by the redistribution of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy even Obama supporters will see their standard of living decrease.

Today the Republicans pushing for amnesty, McCain, etc./have been shut out of the discussion without border closures first and foremost. Boehner will not even look at the possibility of legalization. They talked about border discussions alone, not being brought until next year.

"Recent polls show that most Americans—including a majority of Republican voters—approve of a path to citizenship for undocumented workers."

BS!

Illegal Immigration upsets the balance of Legal Immigration. Would we have really let 6.3 Million Mexicans enter our country legally over the past 27 years? The answer is no and therein lies the problem.

Yet we continue to allow in over 900,000 Legal Immigrants a year which upsets the control of our population which currently stands at 315 Million people.

You factor in the "Chain Migration" act and our population will almost double by 2050 or sooner.The end result would be the United States will become just another third world country

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in. years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and. into the sunshine of America".

May 17, 2007.

Ted Kennedy -- Senator from Massachusetts.
Member of the Democratic Party.

we need a promise act,hold them all to the laws on the books that were promised years ago. why have new laws when some refuse to enforce the current laws.

when i fax costa in ca,he fully support shamnesty gives double talk about needing more farmworker visas. even when i point out the unemployment rate in some areas he claims to need more is at 40% unemployed among farm workers. these folks are against us.
