RNC Calls for Immigration Reform, but No Pathway to Citizenship

There are 483 comments on the WAPI-AM Birmingham story from Aug 16, 2013, titled RNC Calls for Immigration Reform, but No Pathway to Citizenship. In it, WAPI-AM Birmingham reports that:

The Republican National Committee passed a resolution Friday calling on President Obama and Congress to pass immigration reform legislation before the end of the year, but it did not include a pathway to citizenship for any of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country, unlike the bipartisan legislation passed by the Senate in June.

If it's to look out for Americans then it needs to be all Americans.
This is where it gets sketchy with me. I have a problem with birthright citizenship. I think that at least one parent should be a legal citizen before a child born here is automatically considered to be a legal citizen. I might not like it, but until and if it is ever addressed, I have to accept the children as being citizens. However, their parents shouldn't use them as pawns and shields and as a way to twist our arms to let them stay here.

I agree with you teddy about the birthright citizenship. The only thing that I disagee with those that don't like it they feel it can be just written into law. I feel it has to be changed by Constitutional amendment.
As you said the children born here now are Americans. I don't feel that their parents should be sent out for many reasons.
I'm out for now.

Hey, Brenda! I am a woman! I tell my reps all the time that this should be addressed. I actually have one who has co-sponsored such a bill, but notice how these bills never get to the floor for debate? We need to press our reps to make them address this major problem. We can't afford to keep having to subsidze these families who intentionally abuse a system in which they probably never contriubted.

I don't think we have to accept it, we can and should be forcing CONgress to eliminate birthright citizenship to the children of non-citizens. The 14th was meant to cover slaves not illegal aliens who willfully cross our borders.

"Undocumented immigrants" is nothing but a euphemistic description of people who chose to break the law.

Why reward them?

I don't agree. Those lawbreakers could stay if they paid a fine, register with the government and do not have a criminal record. They could have work permits but never be citizens since they jumped the line and prevented those legally waiting for immigration to come.

Their children born here, are citizens. Their children under 18, not born here, should have a path to citizenship.

I hope you don't really believe that they will do any of those things. Promising to background check, fine and register these illegal aliens is all BS. Our politicians have no intention of doing any of those things. These are just empty promises designed to make it easier for the middle class to swallow this POS bill.

IMO, the only way is to solve this is to prevent them from becoming citizens and gaming the system with its concomitant benefits. Hopefully that will stop future immigrants ONLY AFTER the border is closed which I did not initially indicate.

ok to each their own.i dont think they should stay,i think they should take their kids.the whole reason they had kids here is so they would have an anchor.paying fines or not they should never be legal,in my mind.it only opens the door for more to come.america will be mexico.

I don't disagree but the photos of crying families being separated will serve no one but Democrats who pander to to their future constituents and the LSM.

We got rolled when the Democrats promised Reagan to close the border. Let's make sure it never happens again.

They don't want to be citizens unless it means not being deported . They are all citizens of other countries and will always be . duel citizenship . To get into Mexico now you nee a passport unless you CMexican , then just walk right in . Bring your money .
