It is a surplus of illegal aliens and unemployed Americans. 9.8% unemployment and 24% of all illegal aliens in the country.

What's there to debate? There is no good side to amnesty - at least not for america. Obozo wants it cuz he knows the illegals will all go on welfare and vote dem.

Illegals must go. No other country even considers letting them stay.

Illegals have already destroyed CA and it's insane to let them stay and destroy the whole country.

I figured that it was a bunch of bull. That's why I asked somebody else who lives there.

This is how the government works. Let's say that I owe $1,000.00.
I have $2.00 to pay on the $1,000.00 bill. I ask my neighbor to let me borrow $5.00 to help me pay on the $1,000.00 bill. I'll pay him back in a few weeks the $5.00 plus $5.00 in interest. I'll end up spending the $5.00 on something else, because all of a sudden I have a surplus.

Immigration Reform solves nothing. There is no naturalization process.
What we need is to make English the official language, re clarify the 14th amendment & stop anchor babies from being automatic citizens.
We need mandate E verify for every business that wants to do business in this country & end sanctuary cities.
Thats real reform.
I can see reform but reform means dealing with people who want to come here legally, not illegal aliens. Illegal aliens are outside of any immigtaion system. What they are depending on is amnesty.

What a way to run a state...yikes. The little guy, those of us who have personal responsibility, have to make do with less, while those that do nothing and get it handed to them, demand to have more and more. Makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?(Rolling my eyes)

I somewhat understand what your saying, but you have to acknowledge that these immigrants are doing the jobs that Americans don't want to do. We do have an illegal immigrant issue in this country, but as long as they're here, we might as well put them to work.

You're full of crap! First off they aren't "immigrants" they are illegal aliens. All the jobs that these illegal aliens are working have always been done by Americans for a fair wage until their arrival which either reduced the wages and diminished job opportunities for Americans. It is against the law to work here illegally and against the law for employers to hire them but you say put them to work anyway and in spite of the above? Learn something starting with respect for our immigration laws and the reason they are in place.

PRO: "...deporting aliens is as easy as one, two, three. The next time you hear [U.S. President] George W. Bush or [U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security] Michael Chertoff say how impossible immigration enforcement is, remember this simple formula: one, go to where you know aliens are; two, arrest them; three, deport them. Donít bother asking where aliens hang out. The better question is where arenít they hanging out. Go to a bus stop, a taco truck, a convenience store, the post office or an auto repair shop. No need to round them all up at once. Just arrest one or two every day at different locations around town and the message will soon get out."

CON: "It is deplorable to go ahead with this decision of the wall at the border...The wall will not solve any problem. Humanity made a huge mistake by building the Berlin Wall and I believe that today the United States is committing a grave error in building the wall on our border. It is much more useful to solve common problems and foster prosperity in both countries."
----------
I support Deportation
in my area a simple phone call got the word out to illegal aliens,someone placed a call saying that ice raided a local swapmeet and was headed to local companies,the illegal aliens did not show up to work and the criminal employers were on the news complaining,the law were wanting to find the caller,while not touching the employers who admitted to hiring illegal aliens on tv.

so if ice actually did some huge rads like this word would get out fast.

do you work for a living,is your job important to you and your family? thing is there are millions of us who have made our living working jobs that are said no citizens will do.

here an idea,step out of your own job so an illegal aline can have it,after all if you support them then you must see them as more important than citizens.
