would be better if it excluded 11 million how about proof that the border is secure for say 10 years then we can discuss the next step

Salt Lake City, UT

There is NO valid justification for rewarding lawbreakers with the rare prize of legal residency in this country.

There shouldn't even be any discussion about legalization. Instead we should be enforcing the law!

Legalization, by whatever name, is nothing more nor less than official refusal to enforce the law.

Not a single illegal alien should be granted legal status without having first returned home and gone through the process to get back here the legal way. What a horrible precedent to set, that if a group of people break the law for long enough the government will accede to their demands.

Despite what the naysayers claim, it is quite possible to secure the border, remove the job incentives, and deport those caught by police. Once the word gets out that lawbreaking won't be tolerated and that there are no jobs for illegals, they will return home in droves. Once that is done, we can talk about any changes that need to be made to our immigration laws.

If they are going to do this for the illegals then they should also be allowing those who came here legally (here of legal visas)the option of being granted US citizenship. I have several friends who are here on Visas and they pay out the nose each year to maintain their legal statis while those who are here illegally are being given a free ride
