We should just enforce the Immigration Laws and forget this whole Immigration Reform.
It's becoming much to complicated.

Same as always, drive without one, or insurance, and so on. Already a criminal by enterign the country illegally so why not just breaka few more laws while here. It is also illegal to work in this country without a valid Social security number unless you are a green card holder or have a work visa then you get an ITN for tax purposes.

By faking your identity. Juan's probably not even your reaL NAME, but I'm sure you carry in your wallet somebodys child's SS#, and you have always been breaking the law to even work here. I don't know why you won't take every ones advice and hire a Lawyer. I'm sure if you aren't a felon, which you probably are, you could sign up for DACA. Right? Wrong. There is no doubt you've broken to many laws and lived with fake ID for so long, there's no trail on you and without a trail you will never become a Citizen. You are like millions more that don't qualify or cannot qualify for Citizenship in this Country. But I find your post's provocative and funny. Everyone needs to realize Juan is one in millions that will continue to live under our radar and never be able or willing to jump through the hoops to become citizens.

"The federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program established last year by President Barack Obama’s administration gives immigrants who came here illegally as children two years of legal status, allowing work permits and Social Security numbers."

"gives immigrants who came here illegally as children two years of legal status"?

No one but congress can make anyone legal or a citizen. If Obama can make them legal why does this policy not grant green cards? Or just make them citizens?

Why? Because he can't. He can baffle the public with BS but it's against federal law. These illegal aliens don't have any legal status.

There you go again. Acting proud to be taking advantage of Americans. You want to act like a crook? You're doing a good job of it. Why don't you find a legal pathway JUANITA.???? Good ol Jeb Bush has an idea. He think's ya ought to go home and sign up when you're back in your own Country. And we're going to pass new laws so that you can get in to our Country a lot easier. That's his idea of immigration reform JUAN. It's not going to happen for you or your minions of fellow illegal criminal aliens... So quit trying to garner acceptance and respect. Teach your co-hort's about the Laws and do try to keep yourself out of jail.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AGAINST AN AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS!

WHY SIGNING THIS PETITION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHERS!

While every petition, fax, email and phone call against the amnesty is important, signing this petition is by far the most important single thing one of your friends or relatives can do.

The reason is that signing this petition puts a person into an email system at NumbersUSA that will alert them every time one of their elected officials needs to hear something specific about immigration. Nobody else but NumbersUSA runs a customized grassroots mobilization system like this that constantly gathers information on Capitol Hill about your Members of Congress and then lets you know what they are doing, saying and thinking about immigration policy.

The New York Times and other mass media have repeatedly stated that NumbersUSA's mobilization network led the efforts that defeated the close-call amnesty efforts of 2007 and 2010. But the forces for open borders are far more powerful today. Please help by passing along this Petition to everybody you know.

"Does HR 2164 do anything about existing employees?

Criticisms that the bill grandfathers in or amnesties illegal aliens currently working in the United States are false. The Legal Workforce Act actually includes six different tools that will identify illegal aliens already in the workforce and require that they be run through E-Verify and fired if not confirmed by the system.

Ends the ban on running existing workers through E-Verify - Under current federal law, employers are forbidden from running current employees through E-Verify, but HR 2164 lifts that ban. Beginning 30 days after enactment, employers may choose voluntarily to run all current employees through E-Verify.
Mandates running all existing federal, state and local government workers through E-Verify - While private employers aren't required to check current employees, public employers must check all employees within 6 months of enactment. Americans' tax dollars will no longer be used directly to employ illegal aliens.
Requires private employers with federal and/or state contracts to check employees through E-Verify - Within 6 months of enactment, private employers must run their current employees performing work under a federal or state contract through E-Verify. Americans' tax dollars will no longer be used indirectly to employ illegal aliens.
Targets illegal aliens using fake Social Security numbers - The Social Security Administration will be required to send "no-match" letters to employers when an employee is using a Social Security number that either doesn't exist or doesn't match the name or other identifying information of the employee. Employers are required to run these employees through E-Verify and fire them if they cannot correct the mismatch and receive a confirmation through the system.
Targets visa overstayers and deported aliens with valid Social Security Numbers - The bill requires the Social Security Administration to lock the Social Security numbers issued to individuals with expired visas or who have been deported. If an illegal alien with a valid, but locked, Social Security number tries to get a job, he or she will receive a nonconfirmation.
Identifies and fires identity thieves - The bill requires the Social Security Administration to contact owners of Social Security numbers that are receiving contributions from multiple employers. The notification instructs recipients to contact the Social Security fraud hotline if they believe their number is being used fraudulently (i.e., if they are not working for all the employers listed in the notification). Once the rightful owner is identified and confirmed, the Social Security Administration must then lock the Social Security number and contact the employers of the other workers using the stolen number. The employers are required to run the suspect employees through E-Verify, and since the Social Security number is locked, they will receive a nonconfirmation and will have to be fired by the employer. The bill also allows all Americans the option of voluntarily locking their own Social Security number."

How many illegals does Ohio have? It's not exactly a hotbead for immigration. Are they getting boat people from Canada washing ashore in Cleveland?
