Ok I'll play.
We say ok no more waiting in line. Go the nearest enbassy and get your VISA.
And when the masses come and our social services are overwhelmed because lets face it many in 3rd world countries still believe that the USA is the path to riches. So we will be overwhelmed. Then what?
Ok along with all these people we also get many with a grudge.
We wont know this because we opened the gates comeone come all. Right?
Oh wait we will screen for criminal history right? What crimes do we ignore? Thats what we are advocting now isn't it? Ignore the many crimes illegals have committed?

Granting amnesty to illegal immigrants will further deplete taxpayer dollars. If millions of illegal immigrants are legalized, they will become eligible for taxpayer-funded benefits and will further deplete our entitlement programs, which are already on the verge of insolvency.

Kick them all out (by enforcing existing laws), and those problems disappear also.

You must be joking. Make them legal and more will come and we will have the same problems again.

There IS a legal way of immigrating to this country and this would be a slap in the face to those who obeyed the law.

DAN REA on Boston WBZ radio 10:30 am is going to do a program about the killing of this innocent man at 10:00 tonight. You can get it on the internet if you're not local. See what people in Massachusetts really think.

And once again your (faulty) bias comes shining through.

If the illegals were not here, those problems would disappear too.

Total and typical deflection. The incidents are not even remotely the same. And you know it.

Witnesses who saw Denice pinned screaming under the truck ran out and pounded on the vehicle, crying out to the driver who kept going.

Police say Nicolas Guaman, 34, an illegal immigrant from Ecuador who had his 4-year-old with him in the truck, was drunk when he ran a stop sign and hit Denice’s motorcycle.


Making them legal isn't going to solve their alcoholism, it's not going to stop them from driving drunk and doing hit-and-runs.

They're legal in their own countries and their own countries have a serious drunk driving problem and hit-and-runs are very common.

No. If you make DUI legal the problem of people getting hit by drunk drivers does not disappear.

If you make murder legal the problem of people getting killed does not disappear.

If you make stealing legal the problem of people's stuff disappearing does not disappear.

These are qualitatively different crimes.
