Yes! with an incompetent congress and its failure to reform the immigration system in a more effective way many may agree that this and other changes has to be taken at the grass root level to start leading the way forward for the greater good of the nation as a whole.

More proof that there is no need to grant amnesty or open our borders. Honest employers can get all the workers they want legally we just need to enforce the laws and go after those who hire illegals and those who are illegal.
Changes to streamline visa programs have been blocked for years by amnesty supporters who refuse to allow any immigration laws to pass that do not include amnesty for the millions of employers and illegal aliens that have been thumbing their noses at our laws for years. We need to start punishing the criminals and rewarding honest immigrants and employers rather than the other way around.

They bring them in by the bus load and release them like feral cats once the visa expires.

I don't agree with your derogatory statement but many may understand the point you are trying to make and that is, the present immigration system is not working any which way and it needs to be fixed, many are pondering the reasons why it is not been fixed as yet, the majority will agree amnesty or not that the system needs to be reformed urgently.
