Majority of illegals?

The majority of Americans do not want amnesty.

1. "Amnesty" is something you've imagined. There's no such proposal. No matter how many times you say it.

2. It's clear ... a majorty of Americans favor immigration reform which includes a path to legalization/citizenship.

3. You're tilting at windmills. A lone wolf howling while looking at himself in a mirror.

Damn dude, your worse than a damned parrot. Even the media is calling it amnesty. The rest of your diatribe is just that....pure intellectual dishonesty.

This is worse than just amnesty; we also want to give these 'new' citizens benefits that we have worked for all of our lives. The $500 dollar fine is nothing compared to the dollars that taxpayers will shell out to pay for these uninvited quest.

I know that many of the illegal immigrants came here to seek a better life – but, unchecked, they are destroying the life that they seek. They spit in the eye of all of those immigrants and citizens that play by the rules. We would not have a country if we had no laws. Just because people want something does not give them the right to force their beliefs on others. Pay your dues and follow the proper procedures to enter our country legally.

I still think that the E-Verify legislation could help end this problem. Both Republicans and Democrats are sitting on this and not advancing that bill. If there was no chance of employment in our country; the waves of illegal immigrants would stop. What we do need are politicians that actually care about the people that put then in office and pay the bills.

Just because some are going to allow themselves to be fooled by Democrats because they want to do it for the right reasons, doesnt make it the thing to do.

Any time Democrats like the ones involved, are giddy over this, means we should not do it.
