where's the logic of mandating an amnesty that would grant an "UNLIMITED" number of foreigners who are in the usa ILLEGALLY citizenship?

ESPECIALLY when there is double digit unemployment?

there is no logic to it.

We don't need reform, we need enforcement of what we have now, but King Obama and Jester Holder don't think they need to enforce any laws they don't agree with.

WHAT IS INSANITY?

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Congress has passed 7 amnesties for illegal aliens, starting in 1986.

1. Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA), 1986: A blanket amnesty for some 2.7 million illegal aliens
2. Section 245(i) Amnesty, 1994: A temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens
3. Section 245(i) Extension Amnesty, 1997: An extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994
4. Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty, 1997: An amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America
5. Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA), 1998: An amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti
6. Late Amnesty, 2000: An amnesty for some illegal aliens who claim they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an estimated 400,000 illegal aliens
7. LIFE Act Amnesty, 2000: A reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty, an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.

It's not dead. Don't be so sure. There's things going on behind the scenes that you don't know about.

Start enforcing the law, by deporting all illegal immigrants on welfare, 7 out 10 of them receive welfare in California by committing fraud.
Usually illegal women claim that 'was abandoned" by her spouse when her child was born, while they still live together

Why do you pro illegals always bring up some old irrelevant event? Yesterdays United States is not the same as it is today, today we have over 300 million people and a high unemployment rate, we have companies already outsourcing our jobs to a third world country where a worker will work for $2.00 a day no benefits and 12-14 hours a day.
If there are no jobs for american residents or citizens, then where are we going to fit illegals? Politicians and these tree hugging pro illegal immigrant groups keep beating a dead horse but fail to even realize the big picture, the illegal part.
Just because people came here on a boat ions without any control does not mean it can keep happening now a days, do you actually think that letting everyone in just to be a good human being is going to help us here in this country?
Lets look at what uncontrolled immigration has done for a lot of European countries, take a look, go ahead go Google it. The fact is that when we want to control immigration especially from latin countries, we're accused of racism but the majority of illegal immigrants come from Latin American countries, we're not going to blame Australians for what tons of illegal Latin Americans do.
What kills me the most is that these people come here ILLEGAL, they DEMAND that we give them everything from healthcare to driver licenses and if we don't then we're racist, we're bad, and they start protesting as if it's bad that we enforce our laws. We have to stop being sissies with this immigration topic and start deporting those that break our laws.
