How could it be the answer, by any stretch of logic or imagination?

Please explain that to me, including:

a.) proof in the context of your understanding of labor, land, and resource economics;

b.)current nationwide socio-psychological and fiscal health;

c.) future nationwide socio-psychological and fiscal health considering the dramatic accelerated population increase that it would bring.

Just how, could anyone who doesn't have a direct stake in the matter by being an illegal immigrant, have family who are illegal immigrants, or own a major business that would be helped by the further dilution of the labor market, be for amnesty? Please explain that to me? I'm anxiously awaiting.

Consider how many supporters and how much political power these invaders have when they are illegal, and how they demand things they have no right to. Can you imagine what would happen to our country if these 20 million or so illegals became citizens? That would be the end of American. Everyone in Mexico who wanted to come here would be allowed to. The southwest would be transformed into Northern Mexico.

This would be national suicide. This must not be allowed to happen.

And when our own politicians at the helm are pushing for that... makes you wonder if they are on our side.

I agree totally with you....and I find it disgusting that our Govt. takes favor for illegals over its citizens.......

I mean truly, there is NO good reason for amnesty....

No country has ever survived with open borders.

I absolutely agree with you about reason #1. There is corruption at the government level 100% no doubt about this.

But even if they were given amnesty they wouldn't be automatic citizens, so they couldn't vote for quite a number of years, but they would become DEMOCRAT VOTERS absolutely no doubt about that at all.

Unlimited cheap labor for the corporations and elites. Plus of course a government dependent type of voter as no one can support the large families the illegals tend to have on below legal wages in this country with our very high cost of living.

Ronald Reagan tried it once already in 1985. He said it would be a "one time" thing. It didn't work, did it?

I never thought of that. The amnesty is really for Congress

They should all be impeached and tried for treason.
