    I can maybe see it for those who serve in the military, especially combat veterans, because they place their lives on the line for this country, but not for those who are only students.

    Stop the criminal invasion. NO to the "Dream" act.

    @Bryan, I think that comes from the fact that low wage earners and new immigrants tend to vote Democratic.

    I agree with you, not handling the situation, and trying back door moves for amnesty by the Democrats is moving middle America back to the Republicans.

    The time and money would be better spent educating people thinking about coming here illegally. Your actions today will harm your children in the future.

    Amnesty and allowing this to happen over and over helps no one.

    It looks like some are trying to say that pandering to an illegal population will get votes. A review of the most recent elections shows that a growing majority of Americans reject any sort of amnesty, and support Arizona-style laws.

    Note to the lame ducks: Your slim majority is even slimmer.
    Roland Burris (D-IL of Blago fame) is GONE. Mark Kirk (R-IL) has already replaced him. He was sworn in yesterday.
    And Kirk has expressed his intent to vote NO on DREAM.

    Back to calling people who want immigration laws hatemongers?

    Amnesty for 100,000 (not an honest number, the figures jump from 20,000 up to 1.2 million) plus their families, adult brother and sisters, in laws, etc can exceed 300 per person through sponsorships after becoming citizens. That's 100,000 x 300.

    And after they become citizens, who will do the work they claim no one else will do?

    All the new illegal immigrants who come here for the next amnesty. The arguments don't make sense.
