The cost is enormous. We cannot continue to support the responsibility Mexico forces upon the American Taxpayers(by importing it's poor/uneducated),,,, That is the issue... not race nor hate. The economy is failing and Mexico needs to stand up.

If US 'citizens' would quit hiring them, they would quit coming here.

Illegal immigrants already have "representation without taxation", so why would they bother becomming citizens?

I agree. But they work for cheap. The profit these businesses pocket is too much for them to pass up(in their eyes)/ unthinkable. Many Americans are too materialistic,this is the problem. Businesses must be scrutinized/penalized and jailed.

"They want to be treated with respect they want to be able to come out of the shadows and they want a program where they feel that when they are crossing the border they're not going to be detained at the border," he said.

In other words, mexicans want us to be still so that they can freely take! It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that mexicans do not want citizenship!!! They just want to come and go, and treat America like it was their mexico! Now the "...treated wth respect" part they are always asking for it! Haven't they realized that if they want respect, they have to give it?! How about starting by recognizing that we are a soverign country, and owe mexicans NOTHING!!!

Nativism has nothing to do with immigration, but so long as you brought it up, let's discuss it.

First, practically none of immigrants (illegal or legal) are Native to North America. There are North American native tribes, but they already live here. Even fewer are native to specific states like California or Georgia.

Most illegal immigrants to the US are "Hispanic" (ie: of Spainish descent). Their ancestors came here on a boat from Spain just like white Anglos came here from other European countries like Germany or Ireland. The Anglo colonists were actually much more friendly with the Native Americans than the warlike and gold crazy Spanish, who only came here to conquer and enslave. What's happending to the Hispanics today is bad Karma for what they did in the past.

I don't know where most people today get their Walt Disney version of history; perhaps from Disney Channel.

Obama talks about immigration and gun control. Not a word from him on the lack of jobs.
You do know that the Jobs Council was disbanded a few days ago? Also, the obam had not met with them over a year!!! Not only that, since the unemployment rose to 7.9 (not true!), then they have declared the problem solved.

Now let's get on to more serious stuff like taking care of illegal aliens while our country rots...NOT Americans!

We Must pay for our cowardice by opening our Borders and forcing citizens to fund the trillions in costs for allowing our Nation to be colonized by benefit and service starved foreign peasants.

We didn't measure up to previous generations of Americans and must admit to being failures as citizens and parents.

It will be very good for Team Obama because most of the illegals are committed Socialists.

Any democratic government should by all means clear any obstruction for anybody in their pursuit of happiness or success in life. The government should not be an instrument for any group of people or party like the republican party to put obstacles on on the way of people in their pursuit of liberty, happiness or success in life.

When they are threatened with citizenship these numbers (11 million) will shrink, self-deportation will occur. They don't want citizenship, they loose the ability to move freely about the country with no paper trail. The number one thing that makes them attractive (cheap labor) will be out the window. They will have to make English their first language. No more committing crimes (like murder) and heading for the boarder, as a citizen we will go get them. citizenship is the worse thing we could do to them. (Yesterday | post #4)

Don't you remember what your EPIC fail Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney once said????
During the second presidential debate, Mitt Romney repeatedly said 'government does not create jobs' twice after Obama responded to moderator Candy Crowley's question on bringing manufacturing jobs back to the states.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/poll/...
Speaking of jobs, how is that coming along? Unemployments still at 7.9% Still over 48 million Americans on Foodstamps, but I guess the immigration and gun control, a couple of social issues are more important to the liberal left than having Americans working again.
