This is the structure of the shadow government. Do everything by "rules" via federal bureucracies and cut out the people and their representation in the process.

Please call your elected representatives and tell them that this choosing of which laws to follow and bypassing some altogether for political gain is unacceptable!

Well amnesty is a pretty broad word open to different interpretations. Does he support sending all people here illegally back? That is really the topic of the thread and not amnesty.

A cousin of mine married an illegal. He was here on a work visa and it expired and he'd been here for eight years and never took the time to do what you say. Simply didn't care. Then he got his second or third DUI, can't remember how many, and was deported last year. According to her it's not fair.

He doesn't support going around the country and trying to find them all, which I'm sure we can all agree is infeasible. He does support aggressive enforcement of laws prohibiting employing illegals so that illegals will lose their jobs and self-deport. He also supports the border fence and supports requiring employers to use a system like E-verify.

As governor of MA, he vetoed legislation that would have granted in-state tuition to illegals at public colleges and universities. He also started a program that would have allowed state police to enforce immigration laws, but it was not put into place by the end of his term and his successor - Deval Patrick - reversed it.

I'm sure he supports deporting illegals when they are found or arrested for something else.

Well one of the reasons is that we have annual quotas for legal immigration. There are more immigrants that want to come here than we can accomodate in jobs and resources. Many of those who come here illegally don't qualify so they come here illegally anyways. This has got to stop!

I tell you what. If he will come out and put some teeth into the rhetoric, then I would actually vote for him. If he would propose the criminalization of ceo's that hire illegals then hey I am on board. Your company hires an illegal then the person who is in charge goes to jail. If he will do that. I am on board.

Unlike you and many we agree on some things and disagree on others. Not the left who agree with EVERYTHING a dem Pres. does.

Romney is actually the most anti-illegal immigration presidential nominee we've had from either major party since at least the 1970's. The problem is - he's in between a rock and a hard place and can't tout his stance too much because he already has an uphill battle getting support from Hispanics.

Obama on the DREAM Act: "I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there's been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It's just not true."

If you never heard or saw one complaint when Bush did nothing then you simply were not paying attention. Clue: Minutemen Project

Some of us learned from the after effects that Regan's actions only encouraged more illegals. You see, recognizing a problem and not repeating it is only partisan to the Progressives who would amnesty all illegals for their votes.
