Not!...To say it should be free and easy is absurd

I agree with registration and background checks legally. The illegals broke the law and should pay the price. Simple right?

well how do you think we are going to coerce immigrants into registering more effectively? by making the process long and expensive or making it free and easy?

North Carolina Conservative (broken link)


In San Diego County, for example, border fencing remains a critical part of our continuing effort to address the problems commonly associated with illegal immigration. Since construction of the San Diego Border Fence began in 1996, the smuggling of people and narcotics has dropped drastically, crime rates have been reduced by half according to FBI statistics, vehicle drug drive-throughs have been eliminated and apprehensions have decreased as the result of fewer crossing attempts.

Here's one link. The most recent I could find. Look it up yourself though, there's dozens of links.
