Maybe not actually...I never stated anything about amnesty. So please keep posts in context. Another pet peeve.

Not on topic, you stated I STATED things about amnesty. I didn't make such direct stance. Again if you reference a quotation, keep them in context.

As we all know, the Reagan administrtion brought millions of people to the
mainstream society through amnesty, while the economy was in dire straits, and that became the strongest stimulus to the economy, causing a very strong rebound, calling the migrant workers silly names, like criminals, etc. denotes a childish and ideological mentality.....

I am still waiting for someone to explain how we even know what they earn, or the amount of taxes they allegedly pay. Did the DOL and the IRS add a new “illegal alien” category?

How will the legalization of untold millions of illegal aliens improve our economy, given that we have 18 million unemployed and 30 million underemployed? Remember, if legalized they will no longer be ultra-cheap labor, and their employers will have additional overhead.

It was around 3 million during the Reagen presidency and it is at least quadruple that today. It is a whole different ball of wax today.

Sounds way too revisionist. We need to point out the fact that at this precise point in history, the criminal employers of illegals had no illegals to exploit and had to pay these newly legalized democratic voters American citizen wages. I don't think it took too long for the criminal employers of illegals to bring in new illegals that left the newly amnestied illegal alien democratic voters high and dry.

Because virtually all illegal aliens are indeed criminals. What an inane comment. Suffice to say: Latin King; if I committed the same crimes as illegal aliens i.e. ID theft, non reporting of income, etc. my American butt would be facing Federal prison.

Apparently several threads on this issue is not enough evidence? You've got the data I showed you the links. Yet you ignore the data and haven't read the research methods for securing such data. It's sad. It's beyond sad. How about this, go through the threads YOU wrote on and do a little search about the subject. Find the links and then READ them.
