    Washington's insidious goal for immigration reform is to perpetuate their system of profit-driven illegal immigration

    Over one half of the undocumented who cross illegally are Mexican and another 10% are from Central America.

    Tell me: would the majority of these people come or stay in the US if they had a fair chance at prosperity living and working safely at home?

    Why does Washington support NAFTA and CAFTA free trade policies that create poverty in the undocumenteds' home countries which exacerbate their illegal immigration to the US and the necessity for immigration "reform"?

    Profitized illegal immigration (for cheap labor) and immigration reform (for billions in border security tax dollars) have become Washington institutionalized.

    Just like their 40+ year failed "war on drugs" their goal is not to solve the problem, their goal is to perpetuate it for profit. Profit at the cost and suffering of not only the undocumented but US taxpayers too.

    Google S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act in Section 6. Pay particular attention for the Arizona pork loaded on Sections 1104(a) and (b).

    Immigration reform is all about money being made off the undocumented and US taxpayers.

    Google twopesos- victims unite for more.

    My how we've fallen.
    Enforcing the law has become "taking a hard line."
    Do we ever step back and look and what the spin factory has done to our society?

    Republicans don't want illegal immigrants to obtain citizenship due to fears they will vote Democrat. The hard line stance on immigration is hurting Republicans among minority voters.
    Demonizing an entire group of people will eventually backfire. Republicans say it is about the rule of law. I say it is all about politics and political power.
