Illegal immigrants should be placed on the rolls just like every other immigrant. When their slot opens up, then they can apply for citizenship. Until then, they should be sent back to their country of origin.
Would the person who has never broken a rule (law) please step forward.
Junkseller, is that the best you can come up with? Silverspeeder has simply given the principle that good should be rewarded and wrong should be punished. I guess that principle is not in your version of the future.
I broke a law and was suitably punished, do you think people who break the law shouldn't be punished then?
Oh geez, haven't heard that one from you before. Could you be any more intellectually lazy? Actually forget I asked, I don't want you to accept that challenge (not that you can probably help it).
A bit condescending from someone who seems to be claiming the high ground Junkseller. Its not very intellectual to be condescending is it? All that university education and people only have to b condescending to show their intellect.Well i never....
SS, Caleb changed their reply. Originally it was just "best...can do," which is lazy and a repeat for them. To the point, good/bad is different from lawful/unlawful. Very few of us are Judge Dredds. We are selectively rigid based on goodness/badness.
Of course they should not be rewarded. But, the politicians are attempting to reward them so they can buy votes. Rules are rules, except when a politician gets involved, then they are simply something that must be changed to buy votes.

And your reasoning is...? All you are saying is that criminal activity should be rewarded.
and what about those who were born here who have never known anything else? just throw them out? It is a complex situation
If you are born in the US you are a citizen, they would only need someone legal to live with.
Actually it is more of looking to a future rather than hanging on to the past. Still, I don't view working to provide for one's family as a crime. It's really just something you don't like.
JS, you are completely skipping the fact that what they are doing is illegal and some people want to reward that. You are simply using emotional quips rather than realizing the facts. Illegals should have to go through the process like anyone else.
I'm not ignoring the law, I just don't agree with the law and am perfectly willing to erase it. Nothing emotional about that at all.
Another 10 million Mexicans might change your mind.
No they wouldn't. I like the Mexicans I have known. (A lot more than I like many of my fellow Americans actually). Trading 10 million Mexicans for the Tea party I think would be a swell deal.
To take 10 million Mexicans the US would have to have sustainable growth thats what the UK problem has been 5 million immigrants and little if no growth.

Wiggle room is what they are experiencing presently. They can wiggle over the border anytime they wish. That does not make it right. That just makes them illegal. Special treatment means more corruption by politicians.
