Correct.
But that does not just make them all legal……A path to citizenship is way different that just granting all citizenship.
And you forgot to mention that……..LOL
A poll released Wednesday shows that nearly 60 percent of Americans support Arizona's controversial new immigration law.

Wrong………Even more states are joining in on AZ style laws
Arnie was a republican but he was still a far left loon?????
1/10 of any amount saved is a savings and when you are broke you need to cut spending anyway you can….
People like you would just rather Americans suffer the cuts instead of illegal invaders…….
1/6 of the cost of healthcare saved would go a long way in turning the state from bankrupt to solvent..
When you go into a classroom with 35 children and only one teacher and 40% of the kids are un documented the quality of education would be a lot higher for the 60% of documented students if the teacher did not have to deal with the 40% and could focus on the 60%.......
Now take in to consideration the fact that many of the undocumented can’t speak English so the teacher has to spend a larger portion of the time with the 40% than the 60%.
So you will post from the Huffington post one of the FAR left news sources but will refuse to look at anything from the other side???
Typical of a far left loon……any news that is not far left must be a lie…………LOL
That makes you a sheepoles……..
And my guess is that you are a far far left sheepoles……….
Did you notice that in my polls I included right, middle and left news sources???
Try looking at things from all sides once…..
Do you see where I am posting from???
. The poll is not from h post, it is from CNN. Secondly, it is clear, that although americans wants to protect the border and enforce the laws inside, they still want to legalize those illegal immigrants already here. It is easy to say illegal immigrants cost this or that, but why you don't mention the benefits, the cheap labor, the cheap produces and service, the 7 billion they pay to the social security every year. With your philosophy that they have to go because we will save here and there, what about to kill the elderly, they are only a cost to us. 1/5 of the total United States budget go to the payment of social security and medicare for the elderly. Let kill all of them to safe money. Besides where did you pull off your numbers? From your end rear? What is that about 40% undocumented students? Let me educate you, there are around 3 million illegal immigrants in California, about 700,000 are children. The total California K12 system have about 12 million students. How could 700,000 match 12 million at 40%. Please at least use you brain to try to make an statement because you make yourself a fool with all the nonsense you post. By the way, how could 700,000 undocumented students break a 12 million system?

That is not clear at all……..
Show me where that has been said.
I agree with a path to legalization for Mexicans but not for the ones here illegal………..

Benefit of cheap labor is the lowering of wages for Americans…..
Unemployment rate for teens is really high as most of the jobs they use to do are now done by illegals.

A cost is a cost…….And a savings is a savings……
Any money they pay into SSI is because they use someone else’s SSI number so that person will collect the benefits so it is a wash…..

You really don’t understand that illegal’s concentrate in certain areas????......LOL
I took that figure from Ukiah Unified School district in 2006 when I decided to move from California to get a better school system for my children.

Can one straw break a camel’s back?????
Yes if it is the last one…………

And when you are broke you cut spending anyway you can……..
Just by using your figures eliminating the illegals would almost balance the budget…….

I sent an email to Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown suggesting cutting off all financial, medical and social support to anyone who is in the state illegally as one means to help in balancing the state budget (which is required by state constitution). Naturally, I never got a reply.

Setting aside all the name calling. There is a principle here at work, simply put are we a nation held together by the rule of law, or have we decided to cater to the invasion of foreign born nationals. Who want us to provide them a path to citizenship after a blatant disregard for our laws. They citizens of another country stand before us and demand citzenship. Can American citizens demand citizenship from their countries of origin, answer is no. I am amazed at the sense of entitlement foreign nationals brazenly demonstrate time and time again. Of course our politicians are to blame here for their pandering to foreign nationals in collusion with their corporate sponsors. I say enough is enough take back our country by any means necessary.

US Citizen - Well said indeed. This always has been, is now and will always be about the rule of law. Without respect of the law and living within the law there is no restrainst which brings us to this exact travesty of justice we witness.
Shameless political pandering which submits the law to numerous miscarriages. Treason comes to mind, would you agree?

held together by what? rule of law? like all men are created equal!....the united states operates like a third world country and or pimp. thats the rule of law in this country. this country prostitutes illegal .simple business practice and we know the only omes who get arrested are not the johns ( americans) nor there pimp ( america). with out illgals there would be no american dreams ( or wet dreams) for americans ( pimps).without illgals american business would fold. without illgals we couldnt sent our children to college. everyting we buy is supported by illegals and we purchase in support of these hired illgals. just go to your local restaurant is one example.we all do it as americans ( pimps) so as to your rule of law, or ( prostitutes ) this will never change for americans are the problem.

zorro america - Your last few words "americans are the problem" is indeed PARTIALLY true.
Some Americans are certiainly skanks, these skanks hire the the illegal aliens to make huge profit and abuse the illegal alien workers to the maximum knowing that the illegals will not voice the first complaint due to their illigration status - that would expose them to immigration officials and that is the last thing the illegal alien wants.
One solution could be jail time for the employers of illegals. Strict and stern measures such as significant jail cell time, significant fines and monetaty penalties and significant public posting of these skanks as crimminals IMO would go a long way to the reduction of this nonsense.
But alas, we find the government at all levels, local state and federal looking the other way when punishment is with held from the employers. In other words the government is complicit and accepts the results of this, why wouln't they, they are in this together with the businesses that hire illegals.
If we want to curtail/halt this mode of operation outside the law and let the rule of law regain its proper place this nation needs to clean house of the corrupt hypocrites within this nation that promote/support plus gain benefit from the illegals.
Namely that is all businesses that hire the illegal alien and the elected representatives that ALLOW this shyte to happen (and of course deport the illegal aliens while this is occuring)
That is exactly what the common everyday Joe and Jane want and expect here - live within the law and abide by it, no excuses from anyone!

No no no
Only not California
The last state that could survive without immigrants is California ! I have seen it , but if my eyes are not lying , ONLY immigrants are working on the agriculture fields in 110 degrees heat ! And before the immigrants the slaves did it !
About the crisis in California please read:
The thief screams catch the thief about illegal immigration ! Some non intelligent people think the illegals are the reason for the bankruptcy of the states? That's nonsense! The only reason the illegals are allowed to be here is profit! Profit for the business they work for, simple free market condition, imagine you are owner of construction company in the summer heat who you would hire? Or you are the owner of meat processing plant who would you hire? Or you own landscaping business... So they ( some politicians ) makes believe that the immigrants are the reason for the downturn of the states income ? Is exactly the opposite ! Without immigrant labor any producing factory would move out of the US it is happening don't tell me you don't see it! So about the bankruptcy of the states simple economics, the main revenue for the states budgets is sales and real estate taxes! Yes or no? So without the foreign hardworking community which is about 40 million immagine what would happen to those revenues and the housing market ( rental or to own )! Any politician proposing something for deportation or something for that 40 million community is clearly thinking for his own future being reelected ! In the USA you buy house for 100 grand but you owe to the banks 350 000 you buy a car for 30 000 but in 5 years you owe 40 000 and when you deceide to sell it it cost 5000$ there are the real crimes thiefs and parasites! not the hardworking 6,50$ an hour fruit pickers from our agriculture fields ! Admitt it !Well that's the free market Americans are choosing foreigners here and if they are afraight to do it here they move all the office to India ! That is why when you call your bank Indian from India is answering! Is this what we want? The us busines moving abroad because this illegal nonsense ?
