Let's be honest and debate the real issue, not the politically correct issue. The motivation to reform our immigration system should be to secure our nation, control the flow of immigration into the country and protect the American people and those who reside here legally from the consequences of illegal immigration. But immigration reform isn't about any of those things, it's about the Latino vote, and we know that because those words enter into every conversation about immigration reform. Our immigration system should be reformed to benefit all Americans, not to show favor to a designated voting block.

I have no problem with deportation of anyone that can not pass a background check, can not verify they actually lived here before the cut-off date and is not guilty of identity theft, identity fraud, healthcare fraud, benefits fraud, tax fraud or tax evasion.

If they don't secure the borders then this is nothing more than voting buying by the Dems. They agreed to secure the borders back during Reagan's administration and never did. Without securing the borders we'll be doing this again in 5-10 years, another 11-15 million illegals demanding their lottery prize.

Oh, Wait, that is ALL of them! Why is anyone trying to coddle these law breaking individuals? There are 15 MILLION unemployed people (citizens) in this country! We don't need illegals to stay at all!

"Bipartisan Senate legislation would make legalization and ultimately citizenship available only to those who arrived in the U.S. before Dec. 31, 2011, according to a Senate aide with knowledge of the proposals. Anyone who came after that date would be subject to deportation." .......... Reasonable. Which means, of course, that it's DOA as far as the Democrats are concerned. Anyone been watching the news lately? Illegal immigration had slowed of late, but now, with the hope of eventual citizenship for illegals, the number slithering across our southern border has gone off the chart. We're not dealing with stupid people here (well...except our legislators...). Break a law now, get rewarded with citizenship in "X" number of years. Who can resist?

Oops, that got posted before I finished. To complete the comment I'll state that they do have status. Their status is illegal alien.
