Start with idiots like Zuckerberg at facebook or the equally greedy Gates at Microsoft then go on to the big agribusinesses. You could probably get a thumbs up on amnesty from EVERY fortune 500 company.

Another victim of right wing hate radio, you've chosen to become an ignorant bigot. Immigration doesn't harm employment opportunities AT ALL. It has NOT increased unemployment, GOP greed has. It's KKK slop to call immigration "lawlessness," it's only "lawless' because the law is screwed up, and BOTH sides knew this and were ready to reform the system before hate groups stepped in to con stupid white people into fearing a "hispanic takeover of OUR Nation".
It is a LIE to call anyone "illegal," a LIE to claim anyone's been "granted amnesty." REFORM isn't amnesty, and contrary to the Fox lies you swallow, Obama has deported MORE undocumented immigrants than Bush ever did.
Free trade? Are you seriously this dumb? Free trade was great for US corporations, while completely destroying ANY HOPE for small farmers in Mexico, which is why so many are trying to get into the US. The idea that it's harming the US middle class is lunacy, it's not harming them any more than the rest of our economy being based on "the rich get richer" has.
Republicans are only a "hope" for those so racist that they'll do anything to attack Hispanics, or so stunningly ignorant that they believe the idiotic lies blaming our problems on immigrants, NONE of it actually being their fault at all. They're not stealing ANYTHING.
Hey you with that 50s look, not that there's anything wrong with that. What's that thing you're holding in your picture, a trumpet? If it is, you better sound the alert that clueless people are defending claim jumpers and job thieves. Not only that but they think people that care about the rule of law and the quality of life of US citizens are racists, bigots and selfish. Can you imagine anything so crazy as that? Better sound a double alert with that trumpet while you're at it.

It appears that the Repubicans have woken up and will NOT agree to reward foreign nationals for ignoring American Immigration Law. Dignity, Honor, and Sanity may prevail afterall.

Very accurately put my brother. There was never a question of what side was right. The question was always if the rich manipulators could stifle the majority with their money and control of the press. I'm glad that isn't going to happen.

We have CEOs of major company's meeting Obama at the WH and pushing amnesty, I ask this question, why hasn't ONE, JUST ONE democrat came out against amnesty?
the reason why I know juan is an illegal alien is because in an earlier post, he confessed to being illegal.

get this, in craigslist in velo beach, there are posts where people talk about him saying he is illegal.

I'm a citizen and have no freebee benefits that you obviously believe we citizens have? you mean like voting? serving in a jury? or what is it you expect and hope to get? Someone who simply refuses to pay his in come taxes is really defrauding my country and the federal government. You can't expect to be absolved of this crime without paying for all these years of unpaid taxes. This is one of our benefits you want? to pay taxes like all good citizens pay? you can't have it both ways, citizenship without paying taxes? unheard of....any citizen who refuses to pay them end up in prison or they take what you own, house, vehicles, bank accounts... in your case the government would shut your company down and deport you after serving time. Besides there are enough criminals running lose without one more who demands citizenship without abiding by our laws. We don't need you here, you're breaking several laws just by refusing to go to your country of which you're from. I know, I know "brought here as an infant, blah,blah,blah" thats getting old aren't you tired of that story? we are, just go home.....I'm sure you could earn a living over there just as well as you do here. Be grateful you learned the trade here NOW GO HOME AND APPLY YOUR SKILLS IN YOUR COUNTRY.
if you really want to find juan, check out this list of handyman jobs in vero beach florida.

No. No, Amnesty bill this year, or next year either. So all you illegal aliens have time to run home, and apply to come to America legally. Run along now. Didn't Reed, and Obama promise amnesty this year for sure? I thought so.

"We the people" should become more adept at combing through records and searching out fruadulant apps and claims.
We should all demand the same of our government.
This will cause natural attrition.

If all the illegals (at least the ones who really do want citizenship), were to voluntarily deport, then we should agree to put their names at the top of the visa list. Those who don't, when caught, get 2 yrs penitentiary & deportation, WHICH IS WHAT MEXICO DOES WITH ITS ILLEGALS! Also, no taxpayer funded food stamps, housing, phone, etc.(free sh*t) for a certain amount of years after becoming citizens. First prove you can support yourselves, and your families by your own work.

No, what the Republicans woke up to was the fact their constituents will vote them out of office if they do not respect our immigration laws. You can't open the borders to every slime ball in the world, and not expect the legal ruling class to put a stop to it. Actions have consequences, and the Republicans better take note even if the criminal Democrats will not.

Coming from a 3rd world cesspool country of course you jump at any table scarps thrown at you. Yes you do need help. Even if citizenship is given to you your troubles are not over. You are still who you are. Your culture will always betray you. Mexican Indians can't manage their country or themselves.

Deport all illegal aliens. Americans don't want amnesty and I as a black democrat side with republicans on this. Democrat better stop drinking the fluoride in the water. Next year is a election year and you won't hear democrats pushing amnesty while unemployment and food stamp use age grows. They might love illegal aliens but they love their jobs more.

Illegal aliens can be hopeful but what else have they got? They can go home and fight for their rights there, that ain't going to happen.

No amnesty now or ever.
