Respect???? Exactly how have these illegals shown the citizens of this country respect? Where is their respect for our laws???? These people have run roughshod over low-skilled American workers, putting them in the unemployment line, is that how illegals show their respect, thinking only of themselves, without giving a thought to those American families they have hurt?????

You mean like the love and respect you showed Americans by defying their immigration laws, stealing jobs and benefits from them?

Americans for the rule of law aren't the evil ones but illegal aliens who only give a damn about themselves.

It's easy to sneak into America and once here talk about love and respect for all human beings. So brave, so macho, so benevolent of you. But you should stop and consider you and your ilk are interlopers, invaders and sub-human scum.(Look up "ilk" if you don't know what it means. I'll give you a hint, it means lowlife, ignorant, violent, thieving wet backs.)

Granting the undocumented citizenship would help reduce the national debt. The U. S. needs the additional tax dollars.
What a joke! They would only increase the national debt because they are low waged workers with large families. If Americans were given back the jobs they are holding they in turn would be paying into our tax coffers and at a higher rate of pay.

NO JUAN, you know damn well WE TAX PAYERS are hoofing the money the mother gets for the brat, and for all the others you claim she has who's father doesn't send them shit either....so we myself and fellow citizens are financing your kid's survival. And another thing YOU HAVE NO INTENTION OF SENDING HER ANY MONEY, as you refused to give the kid your last name, claiming she doesn't look like you yet refusing to ease your mind and having a simple blood test done. LOSER.
Once I get my business off the ground I will send her some money each month. As I said before, the child should not be punished, she is an American citizen and deserves anything she gets.

No I don't claim her. She could be mine, but I doubt it.
Just because one has sex with a woman doesn't mean he's the father of a child.

This is funny. Democrats, the same people who say it would be impossible to deport 11 million illegal aliens, now want to round up the 11 million and determine when each one came to this country? How will they do that on top of the promised background checks, health checks, English proficiency checks, means checks, and making them pay a fine and back taxes? Maybe they will go to the border videos to date their entry. No, that would take too long. I guess they are just going to have to ask the illegal aliens individually and take their word for it. Don't forget to supply them with immigration lawyers, at taxpayer expense, to make sure they take advantage of all the loopholes. This whole thing is beyond ridiculous. Democrats have no intention of doing any of those things let alone enforce the new legislation. Schumer, the alleged expert, has been involved in all the disastrous amnesties since 1986. His experience at crafting failed amnesty bills is unequaled. We must be crazy to listen to anything this guy says about immigration.

This arbitrary cut-off date will only encourage rampant fraud. Does anybody think that this government will have people in place who actually know how to check out these applicants thoroughly????
they will all be rubber stamped and no fraud will be checked,that was proven with obama's under 31 scam. heck they did not even want to know if those illegal aliens used fraud showing full support of it.
