""I don't think comprehensive immigration reform is going to happen, period," says Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates a lowering of immigration rates"

Not when the public catches on how much the tab will be for the taxpayers. We can't afford our own much less illegals.

Can any of you folks believe that the hotel maid in Vegas, or the gated community maintenance man, here, only to send money to Mexico, will register with the federal Government, Identify themselves, and try to become a US Citizen. Not happening people. They are here under the radar, and won't change. Those that are sneaking around will not nor do they want to pay taxes or speak English. Millions live this way. They Should be deported and their anchors too.No way should we give amnesty to them.

I think that many do prefer the status quo, to the alternative of having some skin in the game. They prefer having the taxpayers pick up their tab.

A great deal of them want nothing to do with the US other than getting as much money as possible from here.

Once they feel they have enough they will return "home" and live in a wealthy manner. Any amnesty granted to others will simply be more cover for them to work under.

One or two anchors in the family is enough. That just gives them more options without cutting off any others.

Again sensible immigration reform aimed at allowing honest immigrants to come here legally and contribute to this country while improving their own lives will be blocked by those demanding amnesty for criminals who come here looking to steal all they can.

I can't tell you how big of a slap in the face it is to my wife. She followed all of the rules and agreed not to take any benefits from the Federal government for 5 years and now she sees illegals just doing whatever they want, breaking any law that gets in there way and being rewarded for it. She knows she would have been much better off to come here illegally than legally. That is the message we are sending to all that want to come here.

That's exactly the message they are sending. I've been tempted in the past to drive down to Mexico and sneak back across. Trouble is, I would have to learn how to speak spanish. LOL!!!
