The folks that are currently in line will just have to wait until we get our collective immigration 'house' in order.

And guess what, amc... We do just that and there won't be anyone shooting at anyone on our southern border...
5 years is more than enough time for illegal immigration to jump.

Its just not fair for people who want to take the legal route. And don't you guys care about the legal immigrants? I got the impression you guys did.

Illegal immigration WILL NOT 'jump'. Remember that word 'enforcement'? Borders, ports and visas. No problemo.

And I couldn't care less about anyone crying that "It's not faaaiiiiirrrrr!". Nobody ever said that life was fair. Is it fair for me to give up my wages or job so an illegal alien can have a job?

My opinion is that if someone is in the process of immigrating here legally FOR THE RIGHT REASONS, they won't mind the extra wait involved. They'll be GLAD that the US is finally starting to respect their effort by KICKING OUT THE CHEATS AND FREELOADERS!

Won't mind?
Wow, you sure expect a lot out of people who don't know you, to follow through with something to keep you happy.

That's just it, amc, it's not about 'me', it's about MY COUNTRY.

My own relatives will have to wait, too. That's what is best for America, and that's what I would like.

Is that they would like? Do you think they care what you would like?

But really, the part in bold got my eyes all watery. Keep hope alive.

I wish I lived in "your" country.

Good immigrants care about the country they're moving to, the rest I couldn't give a damn about.

If caring about my country is naive so be it. I've got a sneaking suspicion there's more naive people than you realize...

Theres that comprehension again.

You are naive because you think there are "good" and "bad" immigrants.
And that the "good" immigrants want whats best for YOU and not THEM.

There are 'good' and 'bad' immigrants. The good ones come to BE AMERICAN, the bad ones come for what they can get and TO HELL with America.

And like I said, it's not about ME, it's about what is BEST for the WHOLE COUNTRY.
