Most foreigners illegally present in the U.S. are from Latin America. Thus legalization of illegal aliens would discriminate based on origin. In fact illegal immigration benefits 30 Latin Americans for every Asian, African, or European beneficiary.

President Kennedy also said:

"natives of no one country should receive over 10 percent of the total quota
numbers authorized in any one year. This will insure that the pattern of
immigration is not distorted by excessive demand from any one country."

Yet although President Kennedy's legislation was enacted into law, immigration discrimination has not ended, only the countries involved have changed. For example due to past amnesties for illegal aliens and intentional misuse of the 14th amendment, Mexico has recently contributed 35% of US immigrants/legalized illegal aliens; future amnesties being proposed could raise this to 50% or more.

But don't we owe illegals from Mexico and SOB a special pass?
I agree with your post Chicago. An amnesty would be a form of discrimination. It would discriminate against every immigrant who ever entered this country legally.
Legal immigrants paid their fees.
Legal immigrants passed their background checks.
Legal immigrants waited until they had a VISA before entering our country.
Legal immigrants actually obeyed our laws.
Illegals? They simply disregarded our laws and our rights as a nation. To reward them with an amnesty is nothing short of saying that we should end all of our laws because the needs of criminals out weigh the needs of honest people.

It's not so much "Mexicans" but rather all illegal immigrants from Latin American countries. As for the why? Because both the Democrats and the Republicans want their votes.

I get the whole numbers thing, but that wouldn't be discrminatory. Now, if the government legalized illegal immigrants from other countries and refused legalization of immigrants from Latin American countries, that could be seen as discriminatory.

Yes, it would be discriminating. Didn't you read what Kennedy said?

I am opposed to legalization for all illegals but if our congress critters are hell bent on doing it, they should only legalize equal numbers of each group.

Agreed. Although I will never support amnesty, if we were to legalize illegal aliens it should be equal percentages. It should not be 90% Hispanics and 10% others.
