At last, momentum is building for a comprehensive plan.
Ok..so lets say one of these "undocumented workers" (which by the way implies that all illegal imigrants are working...which is flat out false) does not want to go through the hassle of this "pathway to citizenship". What about him? I mean this all sounds fine and dandy for those that have been here a long while, have clean records and actually want to become a U.S. citizen, but what about those that have only been here a year or two, who may not fully quailify or just don't care about becoming a citizen? Me thinks that no matter what congress or the president wants or does, there will still be millions of people illegally residing here.
Maybe we can let Mexico have California and we call it even.
It's all fine and dandy there was a bipartisan group, but then the ideas they had, that were reported, and what Obama says he wants don't mesh...so what then? The biggest thing that needs to be done first, before anything else is SECURE OUR BORDERS. End of story. Once that is done, THEN we can discuss what to do with those here illegally.
