I stopped reading this article when he got to the part about, "...we can never deport 12 million people.."

They always make you think that. That FACT is that you enforce your laws and mean it, including prohibiting rental agreements and other contracts, they would get it! As far as agriculture is concerned, I vote for treating it like Saudi Arabia. Have them confined, they are seasonal, and are discouraged from bringing family (last one not Saudia Arabia)!

Why do they think amnesty will fix everything? They are just asking for more trouble. The 1986 amnesty didn't fix anything and the next one won't either.

Open the border, flood the country with illegal aliens. Where are they going to work? Get medical care, go to school and they sure will be committing more crime.

NV is pushing to give illegal aliens driver licenses saying it will increase the funds the state can make. So it comes down to money. Big business thinks the same way. They look at it as more customers they don't care if they are in the country illegally or not, until they start robbing their stores.

“Work hard at work worth doing.”

This administration should focus more on getting Americans off their couches and into jobs,rather than working on ways to reward a large group of people who have blatantly ignored our laws for various reasons. I don't really care what their reasons may be, they didn't do it the right way, so they should not be gifted with something a precious as our citizenship. They have to earn it, and it they can't or won't, they should be summarily removed.
