Right now, the republican version is 'give me your huddled masses...and get them picking lettuce right away!!'

Let's face it, immigration reform has become a political "football."
The politicians from both parties have created a bidding war for the Latino vote.
But that's no way to make public policy.
They have ignored the unemployment problem.
They have ignored the total lack of enforcement in the interior.
They have ignored the demand on already stressed social and educational programs.
They have ignored the trampling of our laws regarding visas, ID theft and perjury.
Both parties want to have a good showing for Latino voters.
And that is simply wrong! Governance must not be couched in currying favor over abiding by existing law.
Obama has simply written his own laws regarding young people, inviting 800,000 to ignore the law for a couple of years. He's also overturned 300,000 standing deportation orders simply because he felt like it.
And he's poised with his pen and his phone to do more of the same.
We must return to upholding existing law or face anarchy.
And policy must be based on what is best for the citizens rather than kowtow to trespassers for a few political points.

Well, the answer sure is NOT to insinuate that they are just in for the welfare and socialism of our President.

And it is not to run another candidate who alienated people with his and hia wife's elitist comments and who still cannot see it.
