If you enter the country illegally you should never be eligible for citizenship. Granting citizenship to known criminals just does not make sense.

Granting the undocumented citizenship would help reduce the national debt. The U. S. needs the additional tax dollars.

So what you are saying, you walking piece of shit, is that the wet backs are not now paying taxes but will when they are citizens? Are these lowlife, uneducated, sub-humans suddenly going to find Jesus and be law-abiding? Why aren't they paying taxes now? What about the billions of dollars you roaches send back to your roach relatives in Mexshitco? How is that going to help the US economy? GFY

These low wage and welfare families will be a drag on the economy and our social safety nets, they will receive more benefits than they put in.

No amnesty bill passes the House.

BTW, there will never be a shortage of illegal aliens to deport.

Hundreds have drifted in in the last couple of years. Where and how will they be vetted? They just need to buy fake document's stating they've rented or worked here since before the cut off date. The Senate may pass this but I don't think it has a chance through the house. The lies and back room deals of this group bother me. We should all have a vote on it. I do think if they enforce the laws they might get somewhere. Ending Birthright citizenship should be at the top of this bill. But as usual, millions will stay hidden or buy fake document's to skirt whatever the bill does.

So, you are saying that you didn't realize that all you illegals are causing a huge chunk of our national debt? you must KNOW THAT YOU HELP PUT US WHERE IT IS JUST HOPELESS....NOW. Perhaps if all of you had paid your share of income tax...we wouldn't be in the shithole we're in! That anchor you left behind in Pearland, IT is also part of our problem!!!!

This arbitrary cut-off date will only encourage rampant fraud. Does anybody think that this government will have people in place who actually know how to check out these applicants thoroughly????

That so called anchor you mention is being taken care of by her mother. Once I get my electrical business off the ground I will send her some money.

In other words, round up the wet backs, beat them badly if they resist, put parents and children on different buses and send the buses to different parts of Mexico. Do this for a month our two, just to ten or eleven thousand of them and millions of the roaches will self deport.
A hard working Mexican must have taken your job. LOL.

The mother? taking care of her? NO JUAN, you know damn well WE TAX PAYERS are hoofing the money the mother gets for the brat, and for all the others you claim she has who's father doesn't send them shit either....so we myself and fellow citizens are financing your kid's survival. And another thing YOU HAVE NO INTENTION OF SENDING HER ANY MONEY, as you refused to give the kid your last name, claiming she doesn't look like you yet refusing to ease your mind and having a simple blood test done. LOSER.
