    Nope. I believe in community service because it teaches them to integrate and be considerate of others, even if that has to be taught the hard way.

    I believe the parents should also pay a fine, to help reimburse the costs.

    But I don't believe in blaming the kids.

    HOWEVER... that said, you have to consider this seriously.

    Again, if the parents say no, the kids are already here, so what now? Blame them by deporting them even if they want to stay?

    It's not as straight forward as you think, 4now, the danger here is creating some half-a$$ed bill that will solve nothing.

    I don't believe in Amnesty, but I do believe that you have to deal with things in a realistic way, or you're bound to repeat the mistakes of the past. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    If the parents say no then what? It would be typical of them. Demand to be made citizens, and expect greencard for nothing.

    this so called dangerous half arsed bill is creating a solution for illegal presence. It will solve something. It solves illegal presence and creates an opportunity to get an education for free if they desire, all for the low cost of 4 years military service which should be perceived as an honor according to america. You perceive it as punishment, so I guess you are not american

    Let's hope it passes. This is a good bill!

    At least it'd be a first step towards a more comprehensive reform plan.

    Houston, I've said it before about 4now, he really doesn't seem to want a solution so he proposes solutions that he knows won't work. I agree with you, the parents are to blame not the kids. Why make the kids suffer because of it?

    I have given you viable solutions for the illegal parents. You say no because it is not a giveaway or freebie . Actual back taxes have to be paid and a solution for the on going migration stopped. You do not want a solution for the illegal migration which will actually solve the problem.

    4 yrs active duty in military is definitely a viable solution. You are not interested , because you want freebie for greencard. You do not offer any solution for the illegal parent that you think should pay. ok. well how about 1k a year penalty for every illegal year the kid has been here attached to the current dream act to be paid by the parents. Minimum id 10 yrs/. How about that? No greencard until amount paid in full. 4yr degree no bul.**** 2 yr degree where the next 2 will be eligible for pell grants and other fed help.


    I give you solutions that help them and help us. You are not interested, as you want freebies using taxpayer dollars only to put these illegal kids in competition with american citizen students and legal residents.

    No 4now, your actual back-taxes plan is not viable. It won't work the way you think it will. It will be nearly impossible to accurately calculate what an illegal owes down to the last cent. It will in practice rely on what the illegal tells them how long they have been here which of course is likely to be less than it really is. Tying up government employees spending hours to find every last paycheck/rent/bills from the illegal will simply put up taxes for us all. It also assumes that the illegal hasn't paid taxes at all. What about employers who have withheld taxes as required by law?

    Even if such an idea became law, what happens if the illegal is charged with owing ten of thousands in back-taxes? If the parents can't pay what then? Do you deny and deport all of them? How's that fair to the kids?

    4yrs active military service. Why active? That still punishes the kid, not the parents. Why should they die to prove to you their allegiance to the USA? LPRs becoming USC's don't have to.

    Getting the parents to pay for their child might work but there's always a chance they won't or can't pay. Now what? Do you deny the kid whose not at fault for crossing the border and send them back or what?

    I still maintain a far simpler and workable solution is a fixed rate penalty fee in return for back-of-the-line PR.

    <span class="ev_code_RED">Yes it will work the way I have planned it. AS you recall, it is not working on a per person basis. It is a reasonable amount of income that will be attached to the illegal. If the illegal can prove that he has met those tax liabilities, then the amount would be reduced. This is not difficult to verify. AS in previous cases in the past, yes length of time here will be verified, and scouts honor in the hands of liars will not be used.</span>

    It will in practice rely on what the illegal tells them how long they have been here which of course is likely to be less than it really is. Tying up government employees spending hours to find every last paycheck/rent/bills from the illegal will simply put up taxes for us all.

    <span class="ev_code_RED">See above. scouts honor will not be used. AS in past instances, all will be verified to combat fraud.</span>

    Even if such an idea became law, what happens if the illegal is charged with owing ten of thousands in back-taxes? If the parents can't pay what then?



    <span class="ev_code_RED">YOu know what will happen. bye bye. It is not a matter of cant pay, it is they will not want to pay. Well I dont like to pay taxes either, but I have to. If they dont want to pay, then they have to go, otherwise give us all a tax amnesty too.</span>

    Do you deny and deport all of them? How's that fair to the kids?

    <span class="ev_code_RED">Fair or unfair is not relatve. If they cannot pay, then there is no way, unless of course you or others here wish to donate the money out of their own pocket to the parent so their illegal kid can stay.</span>

    4yrs active military service. Why active? That still punishes the kid, not the parents.



    <span class="ev_code_RED">Why not? ok.. explain joining the military is not punishment, but active duty is punishment?</span> Why should they die to prove to you their allegiance to the USA?

    <span class="ev_code_RED">What better way to prove through active duty,This is where the need is. Yes they are the replacement team to do the job that americans dont want to do.</span>
    LPRs becoming USC's don't have to.

    <span class="ev_code_RED">


    Last I checked, lpr is not an illegal seeking to get a greencard. But lpr seeking to become as usc must pledge allegiance.. but I guess to you, this just means lip service, not the real deal of going to active duty.
    And, uh.. yes lpr & citizens do so proving by the amount of lpr and citizens that are in active duty fighting for this country. But I guess that is ok, you want some fake lip service from sons and daughters of liars to just say they are willing. Test that metal and I bet you get tiny percentage.</span>

    Getting the parents to pay for their child might work but there's always a chance they won't or can't pay. Now what?


    <span class="ev_code_RED">There is no now what. They signed the contract deal, if they renig, then there is the door, their kid does not get a green card for free.</span>
    Do you deny the kid whose not at fault for crossing the border and send them back or what?

    <span class="ev_code_RED">Yes if their parents dont pay, of course. Once again their parents have lied or not complied for their kids. It is not the usa fault either, nor our taxpayer's obligation to pay for them, AND put them into the competiton with our legal residents for jobs and schooling and financial aid.</span>

    I still maintain a far simpler and workable solution is a fixed rate penalty fee in return for back-of-the-line PR.


    <span class="ev_code_RED">What is the fixed rate fee you have in mind? What is this back of the line pr plan?</span>

    The DREAM Act is nothing more than a silent amnesty...if the college bound illegal's parents are not required to pay back all the public money they stole educating their illegal brats in public school, aren't required to pay at the very least back taxes or, are not required to be deported forever in exchange for their illegal brat's eventual green card, then no penalty has been paid, and thus any new status awarded these lowlifes will only encourage more illegals to show up here to do the same....

    I say set a penalty fee of say $8000 per person (who is going to become legal), payable in full before any processing of interim benefits takes place. Why this amount? Because it is a realistic amount to pay in full. Setting full back-tax payments of $20+k or more is not realistic to pay off immediately. There's no need for payment plans, minimal processing time (done by existing bureaucratic systems, maybe by USCIS itself) and the biggest plus, immediate funds to the US Government. $8000 x 11 million = $8.8bn in instant revenue. Enough to offset Stimulus Bill Act.

    Back-of-the-line plan means exactly that. No queue jumping. Once penalty fee has been paid and the processing begins, interim benefits such an EAD would be issued. A wait of say 3 years before applying for PR status and then the usual 5 years as an LPR before applying for Citizenship. So a total of 8 years before Citizenship is possible. That's pretty much what what the 2007 proposed Bill was.
