They should pave a pathway for Legal Americans looking for job's instead of pandering to business that pay's huge bucks to lobbyist's so the McDonalds and KFC in this Country get million's. Also Educate Americans, make a Pathway for all Legal Americans to get a good Education. Send home the illegals with Degrees's until you have educated Americans. If they did the same for legals as they do for illegals, we'd have a competent workforce... Sickening. The Chamber of Commerce worrying about green cards and work visa's for illegals. It's sickening!

WASHINGTON (AP)— The president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said Thursday that the “door to the American dream must always remain open” as he announced a broad coalition of business, labor, faith organizations, law enforcement and ethnic groups intent on overhauling the nation’s immigration system.

The name, US Chamber of Commerce is a misnomer! It should be renamed Business Interest Chamber of Commerce! They have always been proponents of illegal immigration.

Don't be fooled by his mentioning that enforcement, etc., first, that's how they got the American people to drink Kool-aid with the first amnesty!

Scream yell, fax, email our congresspeople and protest ANY for of leneincy. Please note that he is looking for an easier way to get citizenship. Our country isn't sold cheaply.

True story: I work in a major metro school district. Recently, a mexican substitute teacher, accent and all, told me that she liked working at a particular school because her preference was to work with minority students!!! She said this because I am a minority and I am sure she fully expected me to amen her. I just smiled and told her I like working with ALL kids. In my mind, however, I was thinking, you pig! You come over here wanting to be a citizeen, and you feel you have the right to discriminate, but others don't. Oh, and I wasn't fooled by the "minority" statement, what she really meant was that she prefered working wit hispanic kids!

It's not about paving the way when people are lazy *sses they can not find the way to doing anything like working hard or studying,even if you are getting it served in a golden tray.The problem with bigots like you is that don't accept that immigrants pave the way themselves,working hard trough the hardest situations and succeed and they deserve and opportunity to integrate to this society...

The problem is not that illegals don't work hard at what they are doing, the problem is that they are working jobs that they have no right to be working. They didn't come through the front door because they choose to ignore our laws...many of them, and then act as though it's our fault when they get caught and their house of cards come tumbling down around them.

Not everybody is college material. There is no shame in working a job, any job, as long as one does the best one can. Some people are more adept at using their hands and should go into a vocational program to get the skills that make them marketable and able to earn an honest living. That's the thing, those illegals who work oh so hard are not earning an honest living, because their entire life while in this country is bsaed on lies.

I agree with u, not everybody is a colledge material n thats why the world is balanced, pple hav to ecosyst just like plants, I was there once, earning a minimum wage but I promised maself that it wasnt gonna b my destiny, it just pisses me off when americans talk ill of immigrants, am not from here n I kno the history of this country so well, it was built by the immigrants they resent so much, if it wasnt f them I wonder where they would b.I just pray that obama will come up with an immigration reform that will accomodate all immigrants that are already in the country.

If I had had free healthcare for my family, I may have been able to save a lot more, but I was stuck paying gigantic premiums for anchor's. If I had had ten kids out of wedlock and gotten food stamps and free medical for them, and child tax credit's from the US Government I could have driven an Escalade like most Mexicans do. I didn't get section 8 housing voucher's either.. had to pay a full Mortgage, Insurance ect.
Didn't get on every Charity list in the country for more freebies, pleading to every American here, we need clothing and free coat's. The sickening drain you created to our economy and the destruction of our beautiful cities and small towns are why we don't listen to your BS anymore....

Again, as I stated before, I believe in earning an honest living...that IS NOT what iilegals, who currently hold jobs, can say about themselves. Their lives are based one lie after another.
