House G.O.P. Looks at Immigration Plan Without Citizenship
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/06/us...ship.html?_r=0

House Republicans on Tuesday staked out what they cast as a middle-ground option in the debate over immigration, pushing an approach that could include legalization but not a path to citizenship, as their Democratic counterparts favor, for the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally.

STOP IMPORTING POVERTY, STOP CHAIN MIGRATION

Just what is the point of legalizing them? Have they earned that without returning to their homelands and applying to come here legally through normal channels? How does legalizing them improve job opportunties for Americans?

Either way, it's a bad idea. We need our laws enforced, not revised to again grant amnesty. If our government hasn't had the will to enforce our current laws for more than two decades, why on earth should we believe they'll start now?

The GOP took a step, albeit a small step, in the right direction, away from the planned citizenship for millions of illegals; it's the first step.

IMO, amnesty/legalization is just as wrong as granting them a path to citizenship.

Those who refuse to abide by the laws should not be rewarded for breaking them. That's just asking for more trouble.

There are more than enough people throughout the world who are willing to come here legally, and they would be a much better type of people. Why should illegals be moved to the front of the line?
