Reading though that list it looks like a big change from just a couple of years ago when all the news was about states trying to crack down on undocumented immigrants.

Extending the right to have a drivers license, in state tuition and health care to those in the country illegally (especially young people who qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program) seems to be the new trend.

Many of them are also very smug and secretive in our society.
This fact could also be a useful tool in the profiling of those here illegally, especially those that practice Islamic doctrine.
Those IMAO, are very dangerous, whichever country they come from.

Impossible to sort them out,No money ,no manpower. Let's quit the the pandering/Politically Correct B.S. and let's simply enforce our Laws.
Demand that they(from whatever country they come) obey the laws and proceed to apply as all legal immigrants have done.

Not for at least a decade if immigration reform goes through.

I've not been a big fan of a path to citizenship, but if the proposed reforms are passed it will be more than ten years before anyone with adjusted status can even apply for citizenship which means they won't be jumping ahead of people trying to come here legally and they won't be voting any time soon.

My only point with my original comment was that over the last couple of years the tide seems to have turned with states now trying to find a way to bring the undocumented population into the legal system and out of the shadows rather than cracking down and trying to force them out.
