  • Unfair

    Granting illegal aliens amnesty is totally unfair to those who are trying to come to this country through proper channels.
    I think they should be granted citizenship but there should be some kind of penalty, like a hefty fine. And then the word should be put out that anyone who comes to this country illegally from this point on, will be deported no matter how long they have been here.
    Also, anyone here illegally should not be demanding anything until they start paying taxes.

        I am reminded of the parable of the Prodigal Son.

          Noone seemed able to answer this question, despite being asked over and over again. If illegals will get amnesty eventually, what incentive is there to wait in the long immigration queue and comes legally?

            People wanting to come here using the proper channels will save themselves all the anguish, trouble, uncertainty and fear that come attached to the illegal status. If that's not enough of an incentive, I don't know what is. Most folks believe that every alien who tries to get in actually succeeds, in reality there's many who don't make it, get thrown in jail, humiliated and fingerprinted like a common criminal, deported and banned for life; many even die trying. If you wanna come here illegally be ready for all the high-risks of EWI and a life of fear and uncertainty.
            Need more incentives?

              The same tidbit about approval can be said to applicants from overseas. Especially in the recent years, consulates are getting more and more stricter in rejecting visas. Not to mention the age-out problem, death of sponsor, etc,etc,etc...
              As for the illegals, isn't it true that for those that got caught, many more manage to slip in undetected? If that's not the case, why do you think all the talk about beefiing border security?

              So you're trading the decades old wait with the possibility of coming in immediately, reap in the benefit, and getting legalized in the future. I think that's a no brainer.

                Houston, I think the fact that we have probably at least 11 million illegal aliens, and maybe as many as 20 shows that a lot of people believe in short cuts, and figure that the benefit is worth the risk. I read a quote from one illegal who was being deported, to the effect that he'd be right back. Same with those stopped at the border--they just come back. As long as they know that they're home free if they get in, and that no one's looking too closely at papers, they'll come.

                  Waiting is an inconvenience, but you wait in your own country, with no fear, no need to hide. Coming illegally is risky, dangerous and degrading. That sure is a no brainer, indeed.

                    Heh, you speaks as if there're lots of persecution against illegals in the USA. Even ICE & DHS is not actively pursuing them. Haven't you seen the rallies Houston? They're not exactly hiding don't you think? And as said before, there's nothing that guaranteed the waiting will ended with visa/pr to USA.

                      The fact that INA is not being enforced today does NOT mean it will never be enfoced. The GWP will only be passed if the borders are secured and INA strongly enforced. That means a world of problems for illegals in the future.

                        That doesn't change the fact the one thats already in have extreme advantage over the rest isn't it?

                        This will be amnesty number what? 4? 5? As long as the perception of an amnesty will come, it won't stop the flow of illegals.

                          Let's see. Come here illegally. Work for a few years at wages several times what you'd earn in your homeland. Send money back to support your family or build a house. Or, bring your kids for "free" education, or have kids here and be assured that eventually some how some way, you will be able to return. With no real penalties for it, other than a free trip home, and even those are pretty rare. what's not to risk?

                            This situation only applies to people with little or no education. For People who are educated and have a career, there is incentive in legal immigration even if they have to wait in line because they can come and work legally in their respective field or profession.

                            In a perfect world you can enforce the laws and stop the flow of illegals across the border but in a real world there will always be people jumping across the border and there will always be employers willing to hire illegals at dirt low wages. For enforcement to be effective across a 2000 mile border, there has to be a double fence or a wall. Otherwise there will always be a flow of illegals across the border.

                              What about if you cut off the source of employment to begin with, instead of taxpayers subsidizing the business???? Let me guess, if they do that, all the jobs will run overseas instead?
