The numbers of how many people are in this country undocumented is astounding. Does anyone have the real number of how many people are in this country and are not citizens. Why does our government cater to these people. Give all people here illegally 30 days to clear out and then start arresting the ones who are too stubborn to leave. They were going somewhere when they came here; they can go somewhere else just as easily. Hopefully they will try doing it in a legal way the next time. We should not reward unacceptable behavior.

It is not our fault their parents brought them here, except that our government has a blind eye and cares nothing for its own citizens.

If you want to know what kind of idiot would implement a policy that failed previously, ask Romney as he wants to repeat all of Bush's mistakes.

Sure- explain that to all the unemployed Americans during the presidential debates. I am sure that they will appreciate the difference and be wildly supportive of Obama.

What do you think amnesty is? Of course it's an amnesty -- and it's a huge job giveaway.

And it's not just the 16-30 year old group that will see their job prospects be gone -- there are over 50 year olds who are about to lose their unemployment benefits and have not had any luck finding a job. This benefits no American and harms many.

Are you going to put forth any sort information to dispel that myth?

A lot of us get iti! unfortunately for the clueless, they are ingnorant to the fats, as usual. I know so many fine hard working americans who have lost their jobs and homes under this administration. And now have to put up with this freaking mess.

As usual, some will have a make up name for this amnesty!!!!!!!! Slice it, dice it, anyway you feel, it still is what it is, and this is amnesty.

So they came here as children, let them stand in line with the millions of americans who cannot find work, they are no better.

Why? You think the illegals are going to take a second job? If they were working before, and they continue doing the same, then I don't see anything changing.

You don't add a million young illegal residents who contributed little to the tax base, same as the parent, when unemployed US citizen's who by and large contributed plenty to the tax base are out of work in high numbers, period. That is the one thing that gets under my skin. It seems those who've worked most of their lives and contributed to the community get the shaft when it comes to welfare and social services like healthcare etc. They have to be totally destitute to qualify in which conveniently many illegals fall into. Our taxes paying for illegal's standard of living when many unemployed US citizens are losing everything. Not something that should be tolerated.
