Immigration reform a big hoax by both parties. seems like both sides are holding on to argument with intent that would ultimately lead to a failure of any bill maybe, the status quo works just fine for them but not for the ordinary citizen and and those who are here under ground and have built foundation and families.

one of the biggest issues with an amnesty that the senate didn't even address AT ALL is - the numbers involved.

it was never discussed. PERIOD.

all they did was say there ARE 11 million disadvantaged FOREIGNERS who are in the usa ILLEGALLY that should be granted amnesty.

not once did they discuss what would happen if the numbers were ABOVE 11 million.

NOT ONE DEBATE.

so, what happens if numbers are above 11 million? what happens if it is over 100 MILLION?

hell, we're talking about an amnesty here.. are we not?

so, what happens if those numbers occur?

ANYONE????..it doesn't have to be a democrat answering, mind you.

ANYONE????

are you politicians ALL cocaine using, marijuana smoking, BRAIN DEAD, STUPID hippies?

ANYONE????

There are over 20 million illegals in this country. Legalizing those will not benefit America, but will cause additional drain on our resources funded by taxpayers. Those illegal now not paying taxes will continue to not pay taxes, continue to send money to their home countries, and then like now, will already be voting in our elections - I have seen people being registered to vote - with the person receiving the application KNOWING they are not citizens.

You mean citizens that want illegals gone and illegals that have dropped many anchors knowing they didn't belong here?

But pressuring republicans into doing something everyone knows will only benefit illegals and anchors isn't hurting human beings (Americans)?

which minority would that be? The minority in every pew hispanic center/la rata conducted poll? The vast majority of Americans want illegals gone. Only an incredibly stupid person would tell Republicans they will lose future elections if they don't make people who never will vote for them happy, while making those that do vote for them angry.

You are right in saying that neither side really wants true reform. Those who are here illegally and are demanding amnesty have been blocking any real reform for years. Republicans and Democrats stand to gain more by maintaining the status quo. The Democrats get the Hispanic vote which thanks to "birth right" citizenship policies and unenforced immigration laws is increasing every second and cheap labor. The Republicans keep the votes of those who oppose amnesty and they also get cheap labor. Of course Americans as usual suffer because we keep allowing criminals in and keeping honest people out so the wealthy Democrats and Republicans can become wealthier.

In today’s highly partisan times, the notion that Republicans need to pass immigration reform to win Hispanic votes from the Democrats is pure fantasy.

If Democrats thought for an instant that would happen, immigration reform would die faster than an Obama Budget.

A reform bill without a pathway to citizenship will not address birth right citizenship so the continuous so called anchor babies will change the demographic any way.

The current "reform bill" does not addressed that issue and I doubt that any future bill will. That is another block to true immigration reform that the pro-amnesty groups have thrown up.
Those that support amnesty use the excuse that those who come here illegally do so because the system is "broken" so they have no choice but to break the law and come here illegally even though few of those who have come here illegally ever actually tried the legal route. Yet same people refuse to allow any changes to fix the system the do not include amnesty. The truth is that most of those who come here illegally would never qualify to come her legally because they have criminal records and/or they will most likely become a burden on the taxpayers due to their lack of education and skills.

the anchor baby issue will be sorted out in the near future. and then, it will not be a debateble point anymore.

but it won't come about because of an amnesty.

So will doubling the number of legal guest workers especially in the semi-skilled and skilled categories. Which is what the Republicans are pushing for as a reward for amnesty being granted to those who are primarily criminals and unskilled. The increasing of visas for semi-skilled and skilled workers is being touted as opening the door for people who have skills that are in short supply. The fact is it is opening the door for I.T. technicians, aircraft mechanics, software developers, nurses and many other trades that we have more than a sufficient supply of in our current economy.
