We clearly need these people working here.

Many industries would have nowhere near enough workers if not for "illegals."
Y
ou aren't going to fill all the millions of jobs currently done by "illegals" by looking to people on welfare or unemployment.

We just need to come up with a rational plan to allow guest workers (or whatever we choose to call them).

On July 7, 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury's inspector general for tax administration issued a startling report entitled "Individuals Who Are Not Authorized to Work in the United States Were Paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable
Credits."

No wonder the nation's finances are in turmoil.

******It is clear that unauthorized aliens are filing ITIN tax returns with fraudulent data.******

The Treasury report found that "One common type of
fraudulent refund involves taxpayers fabricating a Wage and Tax Statement (Form W-2) that shows excess withholding and results in a tax refund."

Hispanic American/Illegal alien (?) doing a job that other Americans won't do!

Brownsville man accused of smuggling 6 illegal immigrants

The Brownsville Herald
BROWNSVILLE - A 17-year-old man was apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol agents
Tuesday evening and accused of smuggling six undocumented immigrants across
the border, three miles east of Veterans International Bridge.
Edgar Gutierrez was arrested by a Cameron County sheriff's deputy and booked
into the county jail Wednesday morning, after being held by the Border
Patrol. Bail was set at $10,000 for each of the six counts of unlawful
transport.
According to an affidavit filed in the case, a Border Patrol agent
encountered Gutierrez and six other undocumented immigrants near the
intersection of Palacio Real Drive and Milpa Verde Road at about 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday.

*All seven people were arrested for being in the U.S. illegally, according
to the affidavit.

Gutierrez told officers he was paid $100 per person to lead the group to the
north side of the border, the affidavit stated.

there are 6+ BILLION non-usa citizens out there in the world.

how are we to assimilate that many people if they all decide they want to become citizens of the usa?

you pro-illegals talk of 12 MILLION illegals that you want to allow into the country.

what happens if it is more like 100 MILLION that turn up for the amnesty? what happens if it is more then that?

frankly, something tells me you pro-illegals cannot be trusted.

my guess is - there will be shooting in the streets.

Hart-Celler Act hearings 1965 Quote: Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:

"First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same ... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset ... Contrary to the charges in some quarters,[the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia ... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think."

Sen. Kennedy concluded by saying,

"The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)

we couldn't get more chaotic, WHILE THEY'RE HERE! Just imagine the country's turn around if INSTANTLY THEY WERE ALL GONE? our taxes would take care of OUR OWN PRESENT medical expenses without paying illegals's. Our elderly would get back their cuts in medicare, our schools WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT FEEDING FREE LUNCHES TO ILLEGAL KIDS! THE STATES WOULD BENEFIT from not handing out section 8 to them also because of their anchor kids. US DEBT WOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF!

If we give them a chance to be legalized in this country it will change whole country's economy.
1. Right now they all working but not paying taxes
Think if out 11 mil. Only 5 mill. Start paying taxes
2. If they get drivers lic. Out of 11 mill. Only 1 mil. Buy a car 1 mil. Car sells.
3. They have been here since many years, every one would want to visit their families back home if only 3 mil. Buy airline ticket to visit their home country think abt. Air line ticket sales + lots of shopping before home visit.
4. Every one will pay penalty to become legal resident. For example if they pay 2000/persona
2000 times 10 mill.= 2 bil. In revenue generation by us government !!
There are tons of more !!

using YOUR logic, why don't we allow 100 MILLION to become citizens of the usa?

how about 200 MILLION? or even a BILLION?

fact is (since you want to talk facts), no country in this world can assimilate huge numbers quickly without consequences.

in this case, we would have a scenario where these people would not see the usa as THEIR country...only an atm to suck out all our resources for the country that they really hold loyalties to.

some would go as far to call it an invasion.

imagine if we allowed 100 million mexicans into our country which has a population of 300 million in the span of a few years? what would be the consequences?

would they be good for our people?

something tells me the idiots on capitol hill have never considered this scenario at all.

do you think these 100 million mexicans would think of themselves as american?

better yet. consider this. mexico is a country that is so corrupted, their citizens claim they invade the usa to escape the place.

so, where's the logic of allowing all of them into our country?

the usa is a great country because the majority of the people think pretty much the same. we are united.

the reason why mexico is not united is because the corruption there is so bad, there is no way they can be united.

again, where is the logic of allowing them all? mind you, that is what they want. ask any mexican. and they will tell you this.

better yet.. why not listen to how some of them talk...
