Do you agree with those that believe the United States should create a path to citizenship (amnesty) for anyone in this world that has decided to break our laws, enter into our country (often ILLEGALLY), live here ILLEGALLY, and often work here ILLEGALLY? I left out vote ILLEGALLY and collect benefits that are supposed to be for United States citizens. Nor did I mention the number of ILLEGAL aliens that are locked up in our prisons and jails or the number of people that they have killed while here.

In 1986, amnesty was given to approximately 2 million ILLEGAL aliens. That deal invited another 11 million ILLEGALS into our country. No one knows for sure how many ILLEGALS are living in our country because many in our government do not want them counted and prevent us from doing so. Part of that 1986 amnesty deal included a provision that our borders had to be secured so that more ILLEGAL aliens would not enter our country. There was also supposed to be interior enforcement of our immigration laws. Neither one of those things has yet happened.

There are reasons why countries have immigration laws. Considering the fiscal cliffs that we are now facing in this country, we should not even be considering inviting more of the world's poor into this country.

Giving amnesty to those that have had no respect for the laws of this country would only be rewarding them for breaking our laws, putting them at the front of the line, and be a slap in the face to those people in this world that are trying to legally enter, live, and work in this country.

Why should they have ANY path to citizenship? They broke the law by coming here illegally, Come here legally, and you can have your path.

From one of my favorite right-wing-nut-job blogs:

Illegals have had it! 'Enough is enough!'

"...the DREAMers targeted his {Sen. Ted Cruz} office, along with those of other senators, while yelling, "Enough is enough!"

"Really? Just what is it that they’ve had enough of? Enough benefits from public programs paid for by American taxpayers? Enough amazing good fortune to live in the greatest nation on earth for so many years without being deported?"

"Excuse me illegal invaders. If I may just have a word: If you have had “enough,” then please, I beg of you, by all means, post haste, leave this dreadful land that so stresses your sensibilities and return to your native country of origin. America owes you nothing."

Ouch.
Lot's of sizzle on that steak.

I have said before.
The path to become a US citizen the legal way is highly expensive, extremely long & very difficult.
Amnesty...NO
BUT There should be a way to Legalize these Un-Citizens.

Get them the paperwork & start them on the path to become Legal US Citizens.
Paying a fine & paying back taxes for the time they were here illegally.
No free handouts from the government for at least 5 years.
Learning English.
Joining the military for minimum 6 years gets you fast tracked to become a citizen.

Just a few suggestions...add some more reasonable ones?

That path HAS to start right BEHIND every single person who is applying to immigrate legally. After that, they can go through the exact same criteria as those who are still in their home country. If their application is rejected, they must leave the U.S. within 30 days or face felony charges. Naturally, all this would be predicated on registration and fingerprinting for every illegal alien currently in this country by a date within six months of the new law taking effect. After that time, anyone found in the U.S. unregistered will be treated as a felon and immediately arrested and deported. They also would be ineligible to ever apply for immigration to the U.S. Any registered illegal alien would be deported if convicted of a felony, unless it was a capital crime as deportation of the body would be pointless.

We can no longer take care of our own, let alone support illegals from other countries, they should be shipped back where they came from. We should be taking care of our own poor first, then we can worry about others. Go down south or go to Louisanna these people need our help. Help begins at home and when we have cleaned our mess up than we can help others!

Illegal Immigration is Immoral

"Yet, as shameful and immoral as this legacy of {racial} discrimination is, there are very troubling signs that this same immoral attitude is being spawned today and used to oppress America’s newest large ethnic group, Hispanics. And remarkably, these attitudes are leading to housing segregation, poor educational opportunities, and low expectations for Hispanics in all parts of the nation."

"That all of these immoral and racially insensitive actions are being promoted by the Democratic Party, the party that professes to be the party most sensitive to the needs of poor minorities, is very troubling."

Yes, it is very troubling.

Why bother to get citizenship when the benefits of citizenship are already being given (and I do mean GIVEN) to illegal aliens?

Feds Spent $26.2 Million On Medicare Advantage For Illegal Immigrants

"In a new report released Friday, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General (OIG) revealed that for calendar years 2010 through 2012, CMS {The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services} provided $26.2 million in improper payments to Medicare Advantage organizations for 1,600 “unlawfully present beneficiaries” — or nearly $16,375 per illegal immigrant."

So are these just isolated cases?
It matters not, it obviously had become a routine practice for a while and shows a blatant disregard for the law on the the behalf of the administrators of the program.

I would have less problem with them being given a path to become legalized nationals rather than voting citizens. (But this is really about increasing the ranks of democrat voters. Our vice-president recently said he already considers illegals citizens.) What a travesty!

Our government can't process or keep up with the paperwork for people that come here legally. How could our government process the paperwork for 20 million ILLEGALS if amnesty were granted? Background checks? You're dreaming.

You are correct, I75, it's gotten so bad with our economy that many illegals are voluntarily returning "home". The longer and worse the economy gets, the less likelihood that amnesty will be a priority, or even possible.

One of the standard arguments of those in favor of Amnesty is that America needs more workers, both unskilled and highly-skilled. Of course, the unskilled labor argument falls flat as we have millions out of work, many because they have few skills.
But the argument that America needs more high-tech workers has been quashed.
Amnesty: Not Just for Low-Skilled Workers?
"The Washington Post reported on April 24, 2013, in "Study: There may not be a shortage of American STEM graduates after all," on a recent study by the Economic Policy Institute..."

"The Post also reported on July 7, 2012, in "U.S. pushes for more scientists, but the jobs aren't there," on high-tech graduates who cannot find jobs. The Post quotes Jim Austin, editor of the online magazine ScienceCareers: "And yet, it seems awfully hard for people to find a job. Anyone who goes into science expecting employers to clamor for their services will be deeply disappointed."

Those proposing Amnesty need to come up with some fresh reasons. Not wanting to go through with upholding current law and finding and deporting illegals is not a good enough reason.

>>>Amnesty for illegals? Thank St. Ronald. <<<<

I conceder this one of Reagan’s biggest failures as president.

He though he was giving amnesty to a small group of people in exchange for better enforcement of the boarder and tighter enforcement in the country. At least he was up front and called it amnesty not reform.

This is what Reagan reportedly later said about his amnesty deal.


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>According to Ronald Reagan himself, as told to his trusted long-time friend and U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, the biggest mistake of his presidency was signing the 1986 amnesty for what turned out to be more than half the five million illegal immigrants in the country. Reagan was uncomfortable with the amnesty but was persuaded by some of the leaders of his own party (still living) that it would only affect a small number of illegal immigrants and would assure that Congress would follow through with more vigorous enforcement of U.S. immigration laws. The misnamed Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 was touted by its supporters as “comprehensive immigration reform” that would grant amnesty only to a few long-settled immigrants and strengthen border security and internal immigration enforcement against employers who were hiring illegal immigrants.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

This article says a lot about how the last amnesty came about and there are lessons to be learned. Will we learn from history or repeat it.

Regan amnesty : law which was passed after 1984 speech:"The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), Pub.L. 99–603, 100 Stat. 3445, enacted November 6, 1986, also Simpson-Mazzoli Act, is an Act of Congress which reformed United States immigration law. It was an attempt to solve the immigration problem during 1986.
In brief, the act:
1. required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status;
2. made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants;
3. legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants, and;
4. legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before
--January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of ---- a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt;
5. candidates were required to prove that they were not guilty of crimes, that they were in the country before January 1, 1982, and that they possessed minimal knowledge about U.S. history, government, and the English language.
About three million undocumented immigrants were granted legal status through this act"wiki link

Well I’m sure that bank robbers would be much more comfortable being called “unauthorized customers”. Carjackers would much prefer the phrase “unauthorized vehicle operator.” I’m sure a rapist would prefer be called the partner of a non consenting sexual event. Murders would like to be charged with unauthorized life termination.

You can put pretty names every crime but it doesn’t change the act.

She should realize that nobody is "labeling [all] immigrants criminals". They're labeling specifically those immigrants who are here illegally as criminals.

It's sad that a Supreme Court justice doesn't seem to understand the concept of "illegal".

"Sotomayor was asked at a talk at Yale Law School later in the day about her use of the term “undocumented immigrants” rather than the traditional illegal alien. Sotomayor characterized the issue as a regulatory problem and said labeling immigrants criminals seemed insulting to her."

Another prime example of "how does this make you feel"......

Hey Sonia! We might expect that a lawyer would understand that if a person breaks the law to come here, and continues to break the law by staying here, they are indeed a criminal by definition!

I'd fire her if it were up to me.

Part of any law giving anyone a path to citizenship has to include no government money to noncitizens. If you are not a citizen you do not get SSI payments, WIC, free healthcare, or so much as a free meal. I will give them a free ticket the nearest boarder.

Plus legal aide, health care, housing, subsidized transit pass, subsidized college tuition, heating assistance, career counseling , job training, plus more.

THey even get airfare and moving expenses. My former tenant (of questionable citizenship) with 4 anchor babies broke her child custody agreement by secretly leaving her former home in N. Carolina. When the court tracked her down, she was ordered to appear in Family Court back there. Her air fare was picked up by local welfare.

Oh yeah, she lost the case and was ordered to return to NC or lose custody. Welfare picked up the cost of the moving van. If an American citizen did this, they 'd go to jail. Plus lose custody.

Senator Jeff Sessions Warns House GOP: Immigration Bill Is Bad Politics, Bad Policy

"They (House Republicans) are reportedly drafting an immigration plan that is uncomfortably similar to a 'piecemeal' repackaging of the disastrous Senate plan—and even privately negotiating a final package with Democrat activists before consulting with their own members."

"It's bad politics, Sessions writes. "In the rush to pass an immigration bill, there has been a near absence of any serious thought about the conditions facing American workers. The last 40 years has been a period of record immigration to the U.S., with the last 10 years seeing more new arrivals than any prior 10- year period in history."

RNC’s Priebus: ‘General consensus’ that something big has to happen on immigration
"Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday that there’s a “general consensus” in his party that something big needs to happen on overhauling the country’s immigration laws and that more specifics would be unveiled this week at House Republicans’ annual retreat."

Note to Preibus: forging a "consensus" and moving ahead is not necessarily a desirable path for the Republican Party, if it means destroying what little is left of meaningful control of the borders and immigration.

They are here illegally.

They need to voluntarily go back to their home country or be deported to their home country. If we have to deport them their home country should foot the bill for expenses.

They then need to get in line and immigrate to the US as per the law.

If they have kids born here - they can take the kids with them if they wish. If the kids are 18 and wish to stay here they can as they are citizens and adults able to make their own decisions.

1) Complete a full term in any of the Armed Forces gets expressed.
2) Pay a fine & any back taxes due to the US.
3) Fill out the correct paperwork.
4) Learn English passing the TOEFL test.
5) Get in line behind the people doing it LEGALLY.
6) Get a job.
7) Have a SPOTLESS record with no criminal activity.
8) Volunteer and do community service.

True Americans abide by all of these. Let's hold illegal immigrants to the same STANDARD.

Jeb Bush thinks so.

"Former Florida Governor and amnesty advocate Jeb Bush alleged that America's economy needs an influx of foreign workers across all sectors and declared that 2014 would be a "blockbuster year that finally takes [immigration] reform" across the finish line."

I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to NEVER VOTE FOR THAT GUY no matter what office he is running for.
