I don't want amnesty either. I don't like the fact that people can cross the border and then live and work here without problems. This has to be addressed immediately and as you probably know all these laws have to be passed by Congress. The bill passed by the Senate is a very balanced bipartisan solution. It's a excellent opportunity for America to have a bill created by both sides and , even though it's not a perfect bill it is decently balanced.
Read the first two sentences of your post, then explain to me how S744 would be your solution. S744 IS an amnesty first bill with PROMISES of tighter border security later. You say you don't want amnesty and you want tighter security. Well, this bill is everything you DON'T want. The truth of the matter is, we don't need to declare an amnesty in order to pass a bill which would include Everify, stronger border security and a better tracking system for visa holders. The larger truth is that the people who voted yes on S744 don't want border security or any other kind of control.

Giving them your Cloaked Amnesty is NOT going to solve a damn thing. It will simply take away from Americans and their children.
People who oppose immigration bill are people who don't know the history of America. When Europeans came here they didn't have any paperwork with them yet they had a great contribution to the Americans society. It will happen the same with hispanics.

I think there should be a clear decision about these 11 million people. Either they are legalized or they are deported. The worst thing you want to do is to make their life miserable.

It's not reform, it's amnesty. Reform will not help illegal aliens because they are not in the immigration system, they went around it. The only thing that help them is amnesty with no requirements because they can't follow any laws.
The House will not even look at the Senate bill, who wants to read that 1,000+ page, 24 pound monster? They have their own bill.
Amnesty is right now since they can work and live here without any problems. I wonder how you feel about this situation.

The results of the Simpson-Mazzoli Act proves otherwise.

The unemployment rate is 7.6%.
There are more than 4 million long term unemployed non farm workers currently.

Explain how dumping millions of functionally illiterate, uneducated, nominally inexperienced illegals into the job market is going to provide economic growth benefiting Americans?

Calling them lawbreakers or criminals is a clear exaggeration. Let's say you live in a very poor and dangerous area in Mexico not far from Mexico US border. You wanna escape and when you get to the border you say "Man, I wanna get there cause there are so many opportunities for me but I won't go cause by doing that I would break the law!". Is this how you would think ?

The US government is the one and the only one that should be blamed for this situation. Since the beginning of mankind until the end of it people would seek to move to a better place. It's survival instinct.

Here's the reality.

Mexicans created Mexico,nobody else.
You come here and create the same environment you're fleeing from and then latch onto a new host city and drain IT of its resources leaving a wake of destruction and lawlessness in your path.
50% of our prison system is populated by frickin illegals being housed and cared for by a system they never contributed to.
Mexico has enough natural resources where its entire population could live a better standard of life than even Americans and you won't fight the corrupt few who keep you in poverty.
Nothing good comes to any society that encourages tens of millions of uneducated and unskilled baby making machines,period.
