Oh really? Why should I? Oh, yeah, you don't want to be reminded of another big disappointment for you! We have defeated every amnesty related bill and we are getting ready to SLAM the hood down on another attempt.

Interesting. You are like all of the other of your kind, you have no facts, just racist/bigot, and stfu...is that the best you can do? Afterall, you are the best and brightest (according to mexican standards...who can't seem to graduate high school, with highest teen pregnancies)!

Even mexico doesn't want you, and as you know, their standards are pretty low!

The immigration issue is pretty complex. For example the government is also worried about the drop in the number of international students since it's extremely difficult for them to stay here after they finish their studies. There are many students who overstayed their visas though and those are in limbo as well as we speak and definitely they could be great assets for the US economy if they get the right to work.

Interesting that you would make a statement like "We have defeated every amnesty related bill and we are getting ready to SLAM the hood down on another attempt" and then go on with some prattle about "facts" and questioning people's education.

There has never been an "amnesty" bill defeated. The only amnesty bill ever proposed in US history was in 1986. That one passed and was signed by Saint Reagan.

I'm very surprise and disappointed to see these hight skill democrats and republicans to think about illegals the way they do so.
(They brake the law by entering to the United States and don't pay taxes) come on!!!!
They do pay taxes!!! Every small check they get on a weekly basis taxes come out of that check, money they may never see again. when it comes to retiring the social sequrity get to keep that money because the illegal people can't proved their identity,
Check this out....For an illegal person who worked 24 years and paid to the social sequrity a total of 40.000 dollars through out those years.
Times 12 millions illegal equals to 420 billion dollars and that is assuming every one paid into it.
Remember the only ones who don't pay taxes would be people who works on the outside the Home Depot store, but they end up spending their money within.

Immigration is good for everything its not only good for undocumented people but it's also good for government and American citizens its also built to strong economy... Whether government will give status to illegal people or not they will keep continue hard work to survive or savings. They will not spending money here and they try to transfer all money to their country!! They really don't wanna transfer money but what they can do , without status or security of themselves... They are suffering to keep their families happy and struggling for them.... Employers misuse them and force them to work more than 12 hours a day with no any day off and with no overtime with below minimum wages... Its also increasing unemployment because one illegal employee work for as four legal employees... everybody needs to understand and solve this problem as soon as possible... Obama is really a great leader and understand all problems of each person... Its about for human being too...

If congress would have done its job and enforced our laws years ago, we would not be facing this very big problem of illegal alien insurgents taking over our country.

before illegal immigrants could apply for a green card. They would need to register with the federal government and pay back taxes and fines to qualify for a work permit. They would be ineligible for any federal benefits and would need to begin a long process of earning their citizenship - essentially getting in the back of the line.

Now my question is this: How many are going to step forward to be registered,pay a fine,pay back taxes and then lose the benefits that they now get?

as it is,if they stay in the shadows they get all these benefits and more ..........

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!!

Sign petitions to enforce immigration laws,impeach Obama and more!

Let's not just blame it on the illegal people, there is white people who take advantage of the system as well. Also black people and yellow people. I pay taxes as much as the rest of the country does, I don't like it when I have to pay for teenage girls who get pregnant because they didn't think twice before doing it. That isy tax money as well as yours

Please let me clarify that I had the Dream Actt in mind! It has never passsed.
When I read their website, one of their disappointments is the fact that CIR includes the Dream Act. Many wanted it seperated.

Amnesty is not a done deal. Are you nut's. The criminal element alone will disallow millions from becoming citizens. And path will include thee illegal learn English, civic's, and pay back taxes, and have no criminal background. Millions will simply not qualify and sit in there secret lives for as long as they can. The good part is the ones needing entitlement's will be told no unless they jump through the immigration hoop's laid out by our Government. Thousands will simply never apply Mag. Calm down. It can't happen as the Liberal Media would have you believe. Mexican farm worker's might get work permit's and dreamer's meeting stringent requirement's might get in, but the economy is too bad for United States to allow millions in. It looks bad but believe the hype.
