"A group of a half-dozen House members, equally divided between Democrats and Republicans, is nearing completion of wide-ranging immigration legislation similar to proposals by Senate negotiators and President Barack Obama, including a pathway to legal immigration status for 11 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S."

So what's that, 3 democrats and 3 republicans? There are 435 members and republicans control the House. The House does not want any citizenship for illegal aliens.

To be honest with you I don't think most of the illegal aliens want american citizenship. All they want is the right to work and to travel back and forth.

Illegal aliens can't work without authorization or cross the border, they are here illegally.

Why makes them think they should be able to work and travel, this is not their country.

Ask the government why the laws haven't been strict about not letting these people come in and get jobs. Now it's too late to throw them out since they got deep roots into US economy. Have you ever thought about the fact that maybe the government let this happen on purpose ?

if the jobs are in america, americans should be allowed first crack at them. that's commonsense.

You are right but the Americans don't want to do some of the jobs out there. I have a friend who is a restaurant owner and all the people who work in his place are immigrants. He told me that every time he had an American working there it did last for more than few days because of bad schedule, too many hours bla bla bla. That's one of the reasons why the government hasn't been too tough on enforcing the laws when it comes to illegal aliens.

we have laws in place to bring in foreigners to work on jobs that are not filled in by americans.

saying that you have to hire illegals is bullshit.

Yep, that is a half dozen. Not many people at all I just saw a Topix survey and 70% said that Obama was the most liberal / left president so far.
Torchwood, you need to read some history books. Bi-partisan agreements, Wall Street bailouts and the list goes on, is no indication of real leftist socialist. With no effort, he's a firm centrist. He doesn't even make a pimple of FDR's buttocks. Now, that was a president that made no deals and rammed his New Deal down Republican throats, and they ate it!

Most of them are hardworking people and they won't ask for social help. If a new law is passed they won't get welfare before they obtain their greencards.

good question.

some guesses.... conspiracy. OR they are being held at gun point. OR they are just plain stupid.

perhaps a combination of the above?

the fact that the current administration is trying to disarm us should start some heads to spin.

perhaps we do have a manchurian scenario in place?

I have not forgotten obamas secret discussion with the russian PM. nor the secret meeting that bush had with the chinese government.

my guess... a lot of americans have not forgotten either. a reason for why we are arming up.

the world is full of hardworking people. how many of them do you think we should allow into the usa? all of them?

another thing, how can you say they won't get welfare before they obtain their greencards?

fact is - most people if given a welfare check will not work if allowed to vege. if you provide a roof over the heads, and food on the table, most people would be content to do nothing.

I know.. I'm like that.

hey. don't you know that is why communism didn't work?

and you want to allow everybody into the country?

that would be insane.
