So what?! The point is, no country, no matter how large can continue to absorb a refugee population without limits without consequences to the wages and job availability of its naturalized citizens. Is that so hard a concept to get your head around? Don't belive me? Read a paper, watch the news. You are seeing firsthand what the loss of millions of jobs in the last eight years does to a country.

Again: repeat after me; most illegal immigrants are indeed criminals-----------factoring in ID theft, not reporting income, etc.
I live in the Chicago area and I know alot. You the one that think all illegals are criminals. Alot of legal Americans commit ID theft, so whats your point?

If you are in the United States of America illegally then you are a criminal. If you are working in the US and are not paying taxes, you are a criminal. Commit crime=criminal. Understand?

Ok, alot of legal Americans are criminals and in prison , but nobody complaining about that. If somebody broke in your house/apartment, and you shot the person, are you a criminal? Do you have a solution to solve this problem so they can become legal citizens? Just curious, What illegal immigrants are you refering to?

Two "wrongs" do not make a "right". To solve it they should follow the proper channels at home not here. Just as my grandparents did.

There are alot of problems in America and illegal immigrants is just a fraction of it. I believe Obama plans for 12 million illegal immigrants legal to have legal citizenship in this country is one of the ways to reduce it.

As you alluded to: we have enough US citizen criminals------------we certainly do not need more of those illegal immigrant losers.

If you do not like the fact that the USA is cracking down on the above: I strongly recommend you find another nation to live in.

Yep, rewarding lawless behavior. That will stop people from breaking the law.

I think not: looking at our crashing economy; it would be political suicide for either McCain or Obama to seriously entertain even the idea of amnesty. If anything: such a foolish move will likely inflame prejudice against anybody who looks 'Mestizo' regardless of race/ethnicity.

Even if America didn't have 12 million illegal immigrants here, the economy still will be messed up.
