amnesty would be a joke. ya let's amnesty the illegals here now and watch millions cross the river just to wait for the next time we amnesty illegals.

what is there 10? 12 million illegals? in that neighborhood. that is atleast 10 million jobs that americans should have, not everyone was born to be a doctor or ceo. illegals will also make it harder for our kids to get jobs. nobody ever needs a dishwasher anymore, they already have jose back there.

the economy. millions of illegals are here to work and send money home. that means less money for businesses, and the government. i have personally seen an 18 yr old claim 5 dependents (i know for a fact she didn't have any kids) just so she had less than $20 taken out for taxes, that isn't right.

it seems like we are trying to stop them from crossing but after they cross an imaginary line lets say 50 miles past the border it's like we pat them on the back and say good job u made it.

we need to be tougher on them. if we catch them breaking the law crossing our borders we give them a shower, 5 star meal and a ride back home. border patrol agents have even said they catch the same people 2, 3 even 4 times DURING 1 SHIFT.

come on government do something. by allowing illegals to stay here you are completely forgetting THE AMERICAN PEOPLE...

What will happen, like with the last amnesty for illegals is the millions getting the amnesty will then be allowed to legally bring in millions of their family or those they claim to be family and all those millions will be allowed to get jobs, welfare, Social security and so on.
After the first amnesy millions more did come over and Obama wants to give them amnesty. If they get it then millions more will come and wait for the next amnesty.
It happened the first time and will happen again.
