It only make sense that any illegal working in this country, that wants to stay, must be a dues paying member of the AFL-CIO.

Chambers of commerce love illegals. They are a cheap and easily exploitable group of workers.

We all know there is only one thing that can bring right wing and left wing extremist together and that is personal profit. On this issue both sides gain with amnesty and the American people along with their children and grand children end up the losers. One side gets cheap labor and the other gets millions of ignorant followers.
How does it feel to know that your "liberal" heroes are as corrupt as those conservatives you hate so much?

Our borders are STILL POROUS.

If it's not silly to build a wall/fence in dangerous Israel, then it is not silly to build a wall/fence along the USA's borders.

If drones can make such precise hits on their targets, then drones can patrol our borders.

Open Borders bring havoc, economically and socially, to countries which are unindated with illegal aliens.(take the time to read about how Israel deals with illegals entering their State).

An orderly reasonable process must be implemented.

The USA welcomes those who APPLY legally to enter the USA. Applying legally demonstrates to all, that a morally, socially acceptable human being wants to be apart of our country.

Bizarre DemoNcRats need to be voted OUT of OFFICE. Take the opportunity in 2014 to vote DemoNcRats to rebalance America.

NO to ALL DemoNcRats in 2014.

So the Republican want to conspire to set wages for resident immigrant workers that under cuts the wages of typical American wage earners.

At a time when Corporations in america are experiencing record profits the are intent on further under cutting the America worker wages.

Typical of the Republican Economic Development objectives...... this is how those Republican governors solicited the foreign manufacturers to their states. Sacrificing the rights of America workers and ensuring wages comparable to peanuts.

With friends like this setting policy in Congress who in America needs to have any fear of the Taliban or Al Qaeda?

No skill and uneducated Republicans who support the base are inline with supporting the under cutting of wages of American workers.... it's their opinion if they can't earn a livable wage in red states nobody else in America should either.

These are the people promoting any benefit is to much when their motivation is simply they don't have the skills to require compensation packages for their labor to benefit themselves.

If those who employ illegals would only withhold payroll
taxes from the people they employ, that would be a step
in the right direction. Most illegals don't earn enough
to pay any income tax, but payroll taxes are supposed
to be taken out of their pay no matter what they earn.

But, that's the beauty of using illegals. An employer
doesn't have to worry about taking out in taxes on them or
sometimes not even paying them for the work they have done.
Who is the illegal going to complain to? Immigration?
The police?

Drones cannot control our borders, but they can do the
surveillance. They can't make arrests. We need boots
on the ground for that. Trouble is that Homeland Security
will probably have to cut back like other branches
of the federal government, thus fewer boots on the ground
and a more porous border..

But, Republicans want smaller government and Homeland
Security is part of government.

Democrats prove their mentality every day. The Low Information Voters. I know a few that went to College but that didn't make them any smarter. They still think stealing tax payers money is right and give it to illegals so they will have easy life.Maybe when you grow up ,you will develop a brain.

Democrats and Republicans want what is best for them and their masters from any legislation. The problem is that what is best for them is not best for the United States and its citizens. If Republicans have to pay more in taxes to support millions of “new citizens” they want to be able to make the money up by lowering the wages. Again the middle class American gets screwed.

Republicans don't want new citizen's its Democrats that want Millions of illegals from Mexico as Citizens.I say keep wages for Americans high and lower it for illegals, cause maybe they will leave.

Republicans DO want more green cards, and compromise with Dem "pathways" to citizenship for the ability to bring in more cheap foreign labor to do jobs within U.S. borders on immigration legislation since the 1960's! Neither Dems or Repubs are overly concerned about U.S. citizen jobs; their friends and family in the U.S. get taken care of with (often do-nothing) jobs from the taxpayers or the Corp.s. The latest labor/immigration legislation for U.S. now, has NO LIMIT of green card issued per year and NO REQUIREMENT to look (or prove you did - although for over 20 years there was classes offered within Human Resources groups on how to "excuse" every U.S. applicant) for U.S. workers. Mighty patriotic of the Dems and Repubs and a real satisfactory compromise, like most of their decisions, isn't it?

The people who vote do not want the illegal aliens to jump the border, and then get rewarded with citizenship.

The millions of illegal immigrants are not solely from Mexico or for that matter limited to being Hispanics, you can't identify who's illegal by a glance, that's impossible because they look exactly like you in most cases, but you are focused only on the Hispanic immigrants in America.

You're a Fascist at your very core and racist by nature.
