Because they keep coming in. The ones that came 30 years ago are no longer illegal aliens.

Second, judging from the fact that people (a great majority) tend to have kids, and kids born in the U.S. are citizens, and citizen are able to ask for their relatives at 21 years of age. The option of them not being able to turn legal at some point is somewhat of an improbability, hence, not included in the poll. At some point, their kids will legalize them, even if they are repatriated/self-deport.

The option "they will never be legalized" would be a fictitious option.
Correcting the fallacious misinterpretation of the 14th amendment to end the anchor baby industry abuse would put a dent in your theory wouldn't it?

If discussing those illegals who were amnestied; you are correct............somehow I doubt that 100% of them from 1979 were.

So you would argue that someone who has been here for 30 years, has no family that could sponsor him? I doubt that this would be the case for most of those immigrants.

Only for the ones to be born, I highly doubt that even in the slim chance that the 14th amendment gets "re-interpreted", that it would be retroactive. I don't know if that's even possible, since laws are never retroactive.

Not always.

Sometimes a crime committed prior to the law pertaining to it being changed will result in said conviction being expunged.

I hope they are never legalized. Rewarding law breakers is not what this country is all about nor should it be.

If discussing a handful; maybe 2-5 years.

If discussing the ca. 7-12 million here----------not in our lifetimes.

Why not ? if Obama legalizes all of them, than 99.99% of them will vote for him in the 2012 presidential elections.

Obama is after all a politician who will do anything to get elected to a 2nd presidential term.
