"whether comprehensive immigration reform would be a top item on their agenda for 2014."

Only if they are tire of working for the government. We will put them in the unemployment line with 20 million other Americans and allow them to make a real living, that is when and if they can find a job.

The mainstream media would have you believe this crap, while conservatives blatantly express the opinion that we have other problems far more concerning that illegals... If reform meant getting rid of millions and closing the border, it might be looked at, but Repub's. already shut down their desire to even listen to it... We need a President before we ca tackle this problem.

No worries they can always get a six figure "consulting" job as part of their reward from their masters.

While I agree with your anti-amnesty (so-called reform) stance I think that illegal immigration is one of the most pressing problems in this country today and it needs to be addressed not shoved aside as what has been done for so long now.

In 2014 my wish would be for congress to mandate e-verify in every workplace, deny benefits to anyone that has an illegal alien head of household and change birthright citizenship whereby at least one parent is an American citizen to qualify. This will cause most illegal aliens to deport and deter many more from coming. Will all or any of this happen? I doubt it, unfortunately.

But that isn't the immigration reform that is being contemplated right now. What they have before them is an amnesty bill that will give a legal resident status to as many as 20 million illegal invaders. The left will not even allow amendments to the proposal from the white house. They want to bring the shamnisty bill to the floor for a up or down vote and shove it down the throats of the American people. The dream act? It's a wet dream for the reconquista movement but a nightmare for American Citizens.

No body is talking about giving amnesty. They are talking about a reform that will lead into legal status and a possible citizenship. U bitches are smoking crack! Read the news don't just comment.

Lets face facts. Anything the Republicans pass and Obama would be willing to sign is bad for the American worker and taxpayer. If the neocon leadership of the R party wants to let Obama dictate to them what they have to do, they're worse than Dems.

I've thought long and hard about reform. If reform meant accountablilty I'd be right in. My family employs illegals in Nevada. For many years I've learned through conversations with the illegals and with my family. they sure don't want to be found. Most work, remit money home, and fly under the radar. I would love to bring them out of the shadows and deport those that don't meet criteria to become American citizens, ie, criminals, drug smugglers, petty theft etc. But reform won't come easy my friend. Most will not apply to the Country nor wait in some line in order to be legitimized. They're mostly uneducated with several anchors and living with help from our entitlement's. Nevada's hospitality industry would close down the State if illegals were forced to become accountable. That's why nothing's being done thus far. I do see your point that employers need to come clean with laws regarding e-verify, but that has already been tweaked in some States and business's including farm workers, and hospitality. So amnesty and reform are really two different subject's. I get what your saying though for sure.

What exactly in detail needs reforming in the citizenship or legal process?

Is it length of time? Disbarment for CRIMINAL activity/records? National security threat?
What is it in the process that is THE problem that ILLEGALs are complaining about?

Set aside what the pandering politicians who want them in the voter pool asap.think or ASSume is the problem is. What are the ILLEGAL aliens complaining about?

Forget the fact "PROfessional politicians" are assuming that these under the radar crimigrants will want to pay taxes or can even afford to. Many like living off book except when it comes to the benefits and PRIVILEGES of being an actual US citizen or LEGAL resident.
