Illegal immigration is a decades-old problem. With an estimated 11.5 million illegal immigrants living, and in many cases working, in the U.S. the question remains: What do we do with them? And how do we stop more people from coming? Lax enforcement potentially leads to more illegal immigrants competing with U.S. citizens for jobs and some social ... (more)

No where is there a mention of another impetus to come here...our free social services. Ending birthright citizenship would immediately take that access to our freebies off the table for illegals, saving taxpayers beaucoups d'argent. Why are our reps so reticent to make this happen?

The first wave was replaced with the previous wave. Giving out yet another shamnesty will generate yet another wave who'll displace those with recent shamnesty. It must stop and now is as good a time as any.

all these free gifts have caused the problem we have now. the only think that will work is the laws we have on the books. never giving in always 100% illegal aliens. use the 14th as it was intended so all anchors can be removed as well. this will stop that practice.

also need to not let them find work,start putting those who hire them in jail.

put the fear back in them of the border patrol as they once was. one gets on tv lock them up on tv.going after that illegal aliens reporter would be a great start.

Why do they keep saying 11.5 million there's at least 25 million stop trying to fool the American public. Illegals need to be deported plain and simple and the 14th amendment changed to only apply to the children of u.s. citizens and legal residents parents. As for those jobs that will suffer without illegals maybe if they pay Americans a decent wage they will do it. And if that dosent work then do the same thing Canada is doing start an effective guest worker program. And one last thing America let's not let employers who have broken the law get away with this invasion because they're solely responsible it.

I have a Brother that worked for Fidelity Investments for 25 year's... needless to say he was and is very wealthy. Recently I attended a Family function where several Romney-ites attended. The discussion centered around starting a business in Utah County where their are many wealthy conservative business's. During the conversation it was brought up that they would be hiring x amount of illegal immigrant's to accommodate the back breaking work that is intended. I won't mention the business.That option rolled off their mouth's like it was customary. I was so appalled.'That" Folks, is the problem in a nut-shell. If Employers do not start being accountable to the middle class and stop hiring these lawbreakers we are doomed. And it's close now.. We cannot control the breaking in but we can stop giving them jobs.....

there is another way to stop it,it is in the hands of those who are supposed to be enforcing the laws of the lands. no matter what those in office are offered it still doesn't take the problem off of them. orders from the president down to go at it get it done,illegal aliens will be scattering like they used to.

That is one question I'd like answered. Votes? Cheap labor? I've asked it many times of my elected officials and all I ever get is the will to do it is not there or that's what was intended. Neither is satisfactory in my book.

That's what's surprising, you would think the majority would care. Maybe they weren't affected the the horrible economy, or they didn't their 401 K or their home or their job. We seriously cannot keep paying the bill for illegal immigration. Why can't the leaders of the States, besides Arizona, see how bad this problem is. It's weird not to care... And sad the complacency. I don't know what I can do to stop it either.
