Citizenship is a MUST! After all the work that our politicians put into illegal aliens for future votes, they HAVE to become voting citizens!

I was very surprised to read the old, "we can pile 11 million on a bus and deport them..."
Stupid statement. No, we can't, but if we enforce e-verify, fine employers, no tuition breaks, driver's licenses,we will see an immediate decrease!!! We have done everything to accommodate them, all's we have to do is stop!

yes, we should do all the things you mentioned.

but why do you exclude deportation???

as I see it, we should use very option that we have available to get rid of these illegal aliens. and that includes DEPORTATION.

YOUR statement that it cannot be done is false.

in the last century, we did it 3 times under truman, roosevelt, and eisenhower. the program was called "operation wetback".

if we can do it then, we can do it now.

get it done.

You will never get deportation while the Democrats are in majority. They lied about deporting illegals, and they just picked up 2 members of AlQaeda in Kentucky on food stamps, and public welfare. Obama opened the borders to every piece of pond scum in the world.

Don't kid yourself. If they get immigration reform next summer, they will all vote in the 2014 election. They will be on welfare, food stamps, and have healthcare as good as yours. The Democrats lied about waiting 10 years for stuff. They say that to lure Conservation support.

I've always been told by illegals in Nevada, they want to come and go. They do not want responsibility of our government watching over their shoulder. IE paying tax's and being accountable. But merely to come and go. That becomes a problem though, because the money they earn, leaves the USA. We need all the tax dollars we can get. That's not fair too legal Americans that pay for there healthcare ETC. So no, make them register for work permit's. Tax the shit out of them when they are working. Make sure too get rid of repeat offenders, but never, never give them American Citizenship, until they go to the back of the line if they care too at all.

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in.
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and.
into the sunshine of America".

May 17, 2007.

Ted Kennedy -- Senator from Massachusetts.
Member of the Democratic Party.

One more incentive needs to be removed for more to come here and that is denying their kids born on our soil birthright citizenship. The 14th amendment just needs to be re-visited by the Supreme Court for the correct interpretation of birthright citizenship as it was intended to be.

Most countries require that at least one parent be a citizen of this country in order for birthright citizenship to apply to their offspring born on our soil. It just makes sense. They will not be able to tap into our tax coffers to support these kids anymore and will establish common sense and respect for our citizenship.

The headline here does not make sense legal immigration IS and always has been the pathway to citizenship.

All the more reason not to make these illegal aliens legal immigrants. They have not earned that nor a path to our citizenship.

Here we go with the lazy Americans nonsense again. These idiots even brag about stealing jobs from Americans. They take out way more out of our tax coffers than they ever pay in. They think because they have managed to evade the law for several years and paid some taxes they should be allowed to stay. Ain't gonna happen.

I think we're the only developed country in the world that still recognizes birthright citizenship. This countries leadership is totally falling apart. We have to dump a lot of these long time incumbents.

Every election we talk about dumping these do nothings from their cushy jobs, but we never do. This time must be different. Dump all the incumbents, Democrats, Republicans all of them.
