Just because someone says the American people will go for it does not make it true. Just because McAmnesty runs around and says nonsense like that does not make it true either.

The 1986 amnesty was a few million-that was traitourus, a slap in the face to Americans and legal immigrants and was hard enough to swallow. Sorry but the American public is not going to go for 20+ million whether the borders are secure or not.
You can fool some of the people some of the time

Not EVERY problem, but they exacerbate many of the problems we have already such as murders, rapes, welfare fraud, identity theft, healthcare, education, oh and entering our country illegally.
