    Underneath all the encouragement of immigrants, documented and undocumented, to come to the U.S. is the agenda of the Dems to get more people that vote for them so they can ultimately control the presidency and both houses of Congress. The Republicans didn't do great when they had control of the White House and both houses of Congress. It isn't good for either party to have that much control. You need a mix of people and parties that can compromise, work together, and put country before party. Currently, we do not have that in Washington.

    They can't all come to the U.S.
    Mexico, Canada, and many other countries can help as well. The pressure needs to stay on leaders of these immigrants countries from leaders all over the world to address the problems in their countries so their people aren't forced to flee.

    The U.S. also offers a lot of incentives for people who come here illegally - free health care, free education, free legal advice, drivers licenses, citizenship for their children that are born here, and many other things that make the U.S. a magnet for undocumented people. Why wouldn't you come here illegally from a 3rd world country?

    We have American citizens born in this country that can't get all those things for free. Is it no wonder we have a very divided country over immigration issues?

    We need immigration reform that makes sense and is also fair to Americans. We are a country of immigrants but need to also keep in mind all these "free" things cost money. Who is going to pay for them?
