Twink, "pathway" is NOT about Mexico. It's a GLOBAL message we must send. There are people around the world thinking about just coming on over instead of waiting for permission to enter. What would pathway to citizenship signal to those people? After all, that part of illegals comprises about 40% of those who enter on a legal visa and then just never leave again. Of all illegals, THEY are the ones from far away lands who have no intention of making a buck and going home. They usually come to make a new home here. They certainly don't go back and forth because of the fact their visas are no longer valid.How many times have I stated this?

"Path To Citizenship" Not Desired For Many From Mexico

Now, if you're in Europe or Asia and wanting to immigrate, and you're in a hold pattern to get in, why not just come on over, because obviously American would have telegraphed two times in a very big way that it's A-OKAY, and they'll get your on the same path to citizenship you would have gotten while waiting cooling your heels at home? So, I definitely see TGW and "no pathway" to be significant parts of any plan.
Beyond that, no employer should be permitted to retain ANY profit at all that they accrued over the tenure of their illegal workers. They should be stripped of all of it and then fined brutally as well. With a TGW conversion program, we would know how many illegals are already employed at a company. While we would be giving them a "pass" one time only, that really should be a caution and red flag for government to watch those folks going forward.
