If this was your number #1 concern then you would have voted McCain...because even if he was for amnesty the people he would have appointed would have been against it...McCain most likely would have appeased the far right and appointed people like Romney to power positions...
According to Numbersusa, Obama and McCain will be working together on an amnesty! I am disappointed, I just do not understand the logic(if you want to call it logical) behind an amnesty.

This is Obama's stance on immigration, or it was any way. Can it work?

It's all about pay back. Amnesty allows Obama (and to be fair, mccain had he won and W before either) to pay back the hispanic community for all the votes they delivered. Amnesty means a lot of now legal peasants to work for crap for the businesses that pump money into reelection campaigns. Amnesty keeps Mexico relatively stable, thus friendly with the US. And then there is the omni present rumors of a NAU, in which case amnesty would certainly make all the sense in the world......almost like laying the groundwork for it, doncha' think?
