Both parties want the Mexicans to vote for them.
What is right and what is wrong, or what is fair and what is unfair, has no business in today's politics.
To hell with everyone.

"The blueprint focuses on four key areas: a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., improved border security, an overhaul of the legal immigration system and making it easier for businesses to verify the legal status of workers."

Great idea, but in the wrong order.

First, improve border security.

Then, verify legal status of workers. If they cannot be verified, their job goes to someone WITH legal status.

Wait a couple of years for the VERIFICATION process to work.

INCREASE enforcement and deportation.

Then, improve/expedite the immigration process. ANYONE who wants to get in legally, MUST go to the END of the line, waiting IN their country of origin.

But that didn't stop Obama from interjecting some emotional rhetoric of his own. "A lot of folks forget that most of us used to be them," said the POTUS to loud applause. "Unless you're a native American, you came from someplace else. Somebody brought you."

Immigrants, he said, all "did their part to build our nation. They were the Einsteins and the Carnegies, but also them men and women...who built this country hand by hand, brick by brick."
In the speech Obama endorsed the Senate's bill, announced Monday, which would offer a path to earned citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants and said he'd propose his own bill if Congress doesn't act fast. Obama's proposals differ slightly from theirs. His plan includes "passing a background check, paying taxes, paying a penalty, learning English and then going to the back of the line." Now wait a minute, didn't Odumbo claim that small business owners didn't build their businesses, everyone else did. He is so full of shit his eyes are brown!

Unfortunately the Irish illegal immigrants would also be covered by whatever changes are made.

Even IF they are granted AMNESTY.

There is a lot of illegal activity that surrounds the lives of many of the undocumented, in order for them to earn a living (under the table).
