Those 5 million people were already working under the table.

That was President Eisenhower.

Including mob types from the Ukraine, Russia, the Stans. A bigger direct threat are many 'Legal' Immigrants: The Boston Bombers and their criminal family, Muslim Somalians who fight for ISIS. The question is what criminal are not allowed to run rampid in our country

This is a slap in the face to legal immigrants they should be just as outraged as everyone else. They put in all the work to come to the country legally and these people break the law and get rewarded for it. Way to go Obama! The vast majority of illegals are from Mexico not Europe let's be realistic here. If they own an awesome Mexican restaurant they can stay but other than that get the heck out of the country now! There are so many illegal Mexicans the construction industry doesn't even have any jobs in it anymore.

well, you can thank the people who hire them.....I mean, go into any restaurnat in the U.S. and look into their kitchens, who is working there, they can't speak English, and they are paid under the table.

Same with landscaping and construction....let me tell you....there would be jobs to be had if it were not for those hiring them for cheaper labor.....they are the criminals and the law breakers.

Just to clarify though, 38% oppose an executive order vs a legislative solution. That's how this particular poll was worded. In reality, over 50% of Americans support providing some illegal immigrants a path to a legal status. I'm included in this group. These immigrants are already here, we can't realistically change that. But a good legislative solution is needed to avoid finding ourselves here, again, in 20 years. Not this haphazardly-put-together bipartisan immigration bill, and the imminent executive order that's based on it.

How about we make military service mandatory for the illegals that want to become citizens ? Then we can see how many of them really love their new country ....

My brother broke the law when he in his early 20s and the judge gave him a choice of either military service or jail. Since the illegals are breaking the law, how about either join the military or leave ?
