Each side just looks at Mexican illegals as voters. Not thinking of the complete drain on Country's economy.

So for those of us who are not constipated, who else will pick our fruits and vegetables? You really should lay off the jerky and get some roughage. The average illegal in this country contributes 1,000 times more to America than you do.

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986

They will Continue to pick fruits and vegetables under a guest worker program. Americans pay 1000 times more in taxes than any illegal ever would,so you can calm down with all that b.s about contribution

Instead of exploiting each other, why don't we just jail the people who hire them and process more to come legally?

We all know how illegals contribute. They do all the work Americans don't want to do, for slave wages. The question is how do you contribute?

only on every level like doctors,teachers,police,fireme n,first responders,manufacturing and even in places where illegal aliens are the majority like construction and food service.my country will not fall apart without illegal aliens. The only jobs illegals can actually say this country needs them for is for agriculture and toilet cleaning,a guest worker program is all that's needed for that,not citizenship.

First of all (I an American work)I receive a paycheck but I doubt if you know what that is. You illegals always say, we just do the work Americans won't, that would be ok if you wouldn't beg for benefits.Your'e not Americans and don't deserve to be treated like one.

The terrorist attack on Boston proves how reckless and shameless is the US Senate that wants to 'embrace and feed' 11 or 20 million of faceless and nameless people of which 500,000 or one million could be al Qaida terrorists, criminals from all over the world, and Mozlem Brother suicide bombers. Evidently, Obama will not call al Qaida ‘terrorists’ what they are which means that we do not want to label our enemies with a tag that will identify them as our enemies. This gives the terrorists Amnesty and free pass to America through the open borders as the 11 million illegal invaders can get the free Obama check and free Obama phone soon thanks to the 8 gagsters of the Senate. Even if one percent of the 11 million faceless illegal invaders are criminals or terrorists from the Middle east, this means more than 110,000 terrorists will be granted Amnesty and free food stamps by Obama so that they can vote for him in 2014 while we do not have 110,000 police officers to protect that American people from the terrorists. Obama wish to disarm the good law abiding Americans which is good help for the terrorists to be more successful in their crimes against the American people. Obama wish to keep the borders open and bring 40 million more illegal invader parasites that will create new bloc of liberal Democrat votes for his socialistic revolution Venezuela style that will destroy the GOP and create welfare country for the poor and terrorists of the world.

The borders are porous. The seas are not well monitored.

Illegals will continue to come.

If we did that and seal the border, it would solve the problem.

Yes it is. He just forgot to get the cuts in place that Kennedy promised before he signed the bill. Kennedy's cuts never came. It appears we are in déjà vu type scenario again.

When the time comes, Homeland Security will take care of that. Plenty of people in America to choose from.

This will pass in the Senate, and then the House GOPasaurs will promptly kill it; just like the Dems want.

That way the Dems can run in 2014 as supporting immigration reform while the GOPasaurs are stuck defending their bigoty once again.
