And at what cost to the taxpayer to process them and monitor all these things to make sure they stay in compliance? We're talking about our government here that can't even keep track of visa overstayers.
What about the 23 million Americans out of work? We should allow illegals to remain here and retain jobs that Americans need and compete for what is left? This is devistating to our blue-collared American workers. Once made citizens they will be able to tap into our welfare coffers also and we can't even take care of our own people now because we are too broke to do so. Yeah, let's let 12 million illegals accellerate the problem. Yeah, that makes sense....not!

No, the true racists are those who prefer white European immigrants over hispanic or asian immigrants.
It's nearly impossible to legally immigrate to the US from Latin America, but we hand out vias like candy to any white person, just as we have throughout our history.
That's what makes our immigration policy racist.
So you are saying that there are many Asian illegal's also?

President Obama has not introduced an immigration plan. The bipartisan so-called Gang of 8 senators are working on one independent of the WH.

Geographically speaking, "Asia" includes those countries between Kazakhstan and Papua New Guinea. According to Wikipedia, there are an estimated 790,000 illegal immigrants from the geographic region called Asia.

Wow, instead of the 20 million from South of the Border. It's not enought to worry about.

"In the first six months of 2005 alone, Mexico deported more than 120,000 people from Central America back to their countries of origin. Another important group of people are those of Han Chinese origin, who pay about $5,500 to smugglers to be taken to Mexico from Hong Kong."

Thank you Mexico.

So which is it? Are all the illegals going to be on welfare or are they going to be taking all the jobs? Can't be both.
I'm sure those 23 million Americans are just dying to pick lettuce in the hot California sun all day for $5......
So why do Mexicans leave Mexico where they can make $10.00 a day doing the same work to come to the U.S. and make $5.00 a day?
Must be the entitlements that they get in the U.S. that allow them to work for half of what they make in Mexico.

As far as handing out visas to white people like candy that is pure BS. It is true that most Europeans do not need a visa to visit the U.S. or other European countries just as I do not need a visa to visit Europe. Of course since few people from Europe stay illegally and there is a record of them entering and leaving it is not an issue.
On the other hand Russians have a very hard time getting a visa to visit the U.S and an American does need a visa to go to Russia.
The requirements for visas are not based on race or U.S. law but on treaties negotiated between countries.

"A good illegal alien is a dead illegal alien." No crime, no filth, no decay, no anchor babies. Only a
very sick society with a limp-dick government would
even consider tolerating the continued presence of
the trash from south and central America.

The Immigration bill has a better chance of becoming law then the gun control bill. I hope they introduce the gun control bill every day for what is left of Obama's last term.It will never pass, and Obama will come unglued every day. So cool!

The majority of illegals are from Latin America because we share a 2500+ mile land border with them. But at one time many illegals in this country were Chinese workers imported to build the railroads and do other menial labor on the west coast and then just stayed.

They come because they want to be US citizens, and their quality of life here is better than in their native country.

Same reason most other immigrants came to the US, legally or not.

You still haven't identified all those Americans who are going to pick strawberries in the hot California sun all day for $5....

I'm referring to immigration visas, not tourist visas.

And those immigration visas are limited to primarily white people.

So those 23 million Americans are so uneducated & unskilled that they can't be beat out an illegal immigrant for a job?
Sounds like they are total losers who will be unemployed no matter what. There are MILLIONS of jobs currently available to anyone who wants to work. That's why the 11+ million illegals are mostly employed.
Being stupid now, are you? It has nothing to do with education or skills. It is about greedy employers wanting to profit off of cheap, illegal labor, period!

Oh pray tell where are these millions of job being advertised? Most blue-collared Americans I know are beating the streets trying to find a job and they aren't uneducated nor are they unskilled.

Remain in denial if you wish. Illegal aliens have pushed Americans out of their job by working for less, ILLEGALLY!

Really? Look and see how many legal and illegal immigrants are coming from what country and what ethnic group. Hint it's not white people. Want some whine to go with that crow you're going to eat?

Again only 3% of illegal aliens are picking crops! The other 97% are doing jobs that Americans have always done. Even for crop picking there are unlimited H-2A visas for LEGAL, foreign crop pickers. So there is no excuse to be hiring illegal aliens instead except for pure greed on the part of the growers. There now you have your answer as to who would be willing to pick strawberries in the hot sun all day....legal immigrants! Next lame argument.....

Illegal aliens are low IQ toxins loose in America. They bring nothing but crime, filth, and decay.
Breeding like cockroaches they dream of taking over
N.America. The Senators proposing this crime against
America should be tried for treason.

Possibly true, but only if the Dems are successful in getting significant gun control and an amnesty bill passed. But the GOPasaurs aren't allowing the Dems to "keep doing what they are doing".
The GOPasaurs will block any gun control & immigration reform, including logical steps which a majority of Americans support.
The Dems will successfully blame the GOPasaurs for once again failing to do ANYTHING.
I for one am glad gun control was blocked. Do you think the police are going to protect you? They are the ones who just released a few thousand criminal aliens.

Immigration reform? How do they have reform for people not in the immigration system? It's amnesty.

A majority of Americans want out of Afghanistan too, how's that working out? 23 million Americans want a job too what's congress doing? Getting ready to import millions of cheap labor aliens, with benefits.
