If you were a politician, and were to vote on the law. What changes would you make in order to be acceptable to you, and why? Please consider that the changes must be reasonable.

Name me one single country, just one, that would be thrilled to have 12+ million illegal aliens. Illegal aliens whose education level is significantly lower than that of the general population and who lack any discernible job skills. Name one country.

Repeal the entire act of 1965. Enforce the the stipulations placed on immigration in 1986 that where never enforced.

No need to address this new legislation. As far As I am concerned we can make every law in the world, but if they are not enforced it won't make a damn.

Side note, IF i would change anything I would start with omitting sections 101,201,301-502,801, 807(why should we give them or anyone a break on drug use?), and 1001( unless we reinstate QUOTAS by that number). Also look at 1403, thats just funny and dumb.

Nope, You're not on "ignore"

But it seems to me that this proposal/law/ could have been presented for discussion in segments rather than "all at once"

Just because our elected "reps" don't bother to read these before they vote doesn't mean I won't.

Regards

101) How come? These people are eligible but just have to wait a longer time due to the number of visas available per year. This would go to speed up the process of legal immigration, while still keeping a cap so it's manageable.

201) This will give an appeal for abusive immigration officers, i know some people have been mistreated and denied approval and later over ruled by an immigration court. I think this will streamline the process by creating a go to place or these kinds of appeals. Why do you think this is not a good idea?

807) I agree with you, this should be removed.

I am out of time right now, but I will come back later and check the other ones, maybe other people can give their input as well.

Exactly. Even if an immigration reform is set in place, unless those immigration laws are ENFORCED (you know, like the ones currently being ignored) it will serve no purpose. Changing immigration laws and naturalizing more citizens does nothing if illegal labor is still utilized and those employing illegals and the illegals breaking the law go unpunished.

Any CIR needs to include a mandate of e-verify in the workplace and no more automatic citizenship for babies born on our soil by illegal aliens.
