Me too, the people want to improve economic growth, not harm workers by allowing illegal immigrants to take more jobs.

Well, if the illegal aliens we let in a few years ago didn't try to blow up Boston, and maim all those people we might look at them differently. We want all the immigrants possible, but we want them to come in legally. No one respects the criminal element. We have laws. Respect them or go home.

Okay, so they legalize a few qualified million!!!! What about chain migration, spouses in Mexihell and kids as well. When does it end? We need to take over Mexihell, clean it up. Fix the crime levels, give all Mexicans job's repairing infrastructure, and call it a day. Fix the hell they came from and maybe they won't leave. The mess we're getting ourselves into, just is not worth it. It won't pass, and if it does the House will change it so much it won't look the same. We also wonder what happens to millions that never qualify. Where will they go? Will we deport them? What a mess.

It isn't about fixing where the illegal aliens came from. They want to lay around like slobs, and get their freebies until in a few years America will be as destroyed as Mexico.
