The damage to the rule of law that would come from giving citizenship to 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants is reason enough not to pass amnesty, but consider the practical effects it would have on American workers.

that would mean those fools in office would have to have common sense and care for the USA,something i do not see any of them that support shamnesty having. it would make even more sense to stop all immigration for at least 10 years and then only when a proven need is shown,never a reason to import poverty or

Actually, that would be a good idea, like the idea to block government tax increases until the debt is under control. The voters need tangible promises.

The only thing I'd add is to end all the H-1B VISAs. No extensions. Any violations of the law and they get sent home.

Can anyone think of any other tricks that our criminal government absolutely WOULD engage in to buy votes with tricks?

It will never work because

1. Americans refuse to do the type of work undocumented citizens do.

2. The American Chamber of Commerce wants amnesty, matter of fact, they have urged the Republicans in the gang of 8 to include legislation that will issue at least 200,000 more guest worker visas.

3. The Democrats may want anmesty for those already here, but its the Republicans who want to bring in even more.

I vote Republican early and often.

its both sides,they are close to being one in the same. either way this mess will never be fixed until it is stopped at the source. if we give all those folks shamnesty,and you believe they only do jobs citizens will not do,then why would you think more would not sneak in to take the jobs those new citizens will no longer do,all it does is keep the cycle going around and around.

i have to say there is no jobs citizens will not do,that is a crock that has been debunked years ago.

we need to stop all immigration for at least 10 years,and only start it back when proof that cannot be disputed is shown there is a need.

it's too late. the colonization has grown to the point where citizens cannot stop the flood over the border. we failed our families and our country.

we don't it all needs to be stopped. importing poverty is not helping the country either.pulling the dead weight of other countries throw aways is foolish. maybe some feel sorry for them being their homelands do not even want them.
