Illegals aren't pouring over the border and breaking our laws because they have any ounce of respect for this country or it's laws or it's people. It's the big easy money and the very generous government handouts that appeal to them, not the Constitution our our language and culture.

It didn't end when Reagan did it.

Heck, it didn't stop Reagan from becoming a larger than life icon with conservatives.

The difference is that Reagan thought only 300,000 would be amnestied when 3 million came forward. He lived to regret signing that amnesty because our borders were never secured as promised. Today we have at the very minimum quadruple that number here and we have 23 million Americans out of work. See the difference? In a sense our country did end with that first amnesty because it only encouraged many more millions to come here illegally. The damage has been done. The only thing that would fix it is to deport them. Promising them amnesty is the worse thing we can do.

As for conservatives admiring Reagan it certainly didn't have anything to do with the issue of illegal immigration. Illegal immigration certainly isn't the only political issue there was or is.

Of course it will change America simply because it will tip the melting pot we call America. First the real number of illegals will probably is probably closer to 30 million vs 11. Considering the majority are Hispanic and then they can bring their families, we are looking at 50 million or more of a single ethnic group. Will it change America, of course. I just hope rooster/dog fighting doesn't become entertainment and that sex with children is still against the law.

Proof that Reagan regretted it? Do you have a video clip or a quote from Reagan?

Reagan's actions and words indicate that he supported illegal immigrants. He was a big fan of legalizing illegal immigrants.

But it's ok, because Republican's have no integrity.

If memory serves he granted amnesty with the understanding that the congress would fund increased border security. Congress failed to keep their end of the deal.
I myself consider Reagan's Amnesty as one of his greatest mistakes.
