Illegals are defrauding the IRS, and American taxpayers, to the tune of $6Billion a year now.

What do you think is going to happen when they ALL can claim those bogus child care credits?

maybe you should read the report before you post nonsense.according to the entire report,illegal aliens will reduce the deficit by what many would consider nothing,since our deficit is in the trillions,while lowering wages and causing a rise in unemployment.Sorry,but that report does nothing for either side

I agree with you, but sadly enough many of my fellow Hispanics don't get the big picture and in order for a reform to work many things have to change. Like stricter rules on link, SS, compensation, etc. Many not only hispanics take advantage of these programs and mess the whole system up...unfortunatae i would say for those of us who consider oursleves worthy of citizinship....

Harsh on my words?

Just where in my post did you find any mention of race, color, or national origin?

You didn't. I wrote "illegals." An all encompassing term.

You brought "race" into the mix and that makes you the racist.

oh. now the number of illegals is 8 million?

unbelievable.

for 20+ YEARS, the number is 11 million. NOW it is 8 million?

according to the border patrol, the number of illegals is more like 50 to 70 MILLION. and they are only referring to those crossing at the southern border.

ask yourself, people... what happens if there are more like 50+ MILLION illegals applying for an amnesty if approved?

a better question to ask yourself.. what happens if their allegiance is not to the usa?

it's called an INVASION.

listen to their generals.. guys like juan hernandez, joe baca, fabian nunez, antonio villananzo, bill richardson, etc.

these illegals from down south have no intention of becoming loyal citizens of the usa. their first loyalty is to mexico. and their "generals" like juan hernandez are not shy to announce it to the world.

If we would get rid of all the illegals, wages would rise and taxpaying American workers would greatly increase the governments tax revenue. This studies conclusions are beyond ridiculous. The corrupt MSM will say anything to push their agenda.

It happened when a group of criminals realized that if they designated themselves as a "race" they could use the term for financial and political gain and to avoid prosecution for numerous types of crimes.

What's going on here? You used to say it was 200-300 million. You have even gone into the billions in some posts.

70 million is a 90% reduction from your previous estimates. That would be a good thing. Right?

only an idiot would say that adding 70 millon to our work force is a good thing.

especially since we already have double digit unemployment.

so, that must make you an idiot. right?

Who said anything about adding 70 million. According to you we have removed more than 900 million. Or were your previous estimates inaccurate?

If this second amnesty is given, it will set the progress of African American opportunities back 50 years. We need to support our current citizens and deport every person illegally present - after all, they are already criminals that could have gone through the channels to obtain legal presence as those that made the effort to do. It would be outrageous to reward the criminality.
