Here is a quote from team Obama....."We need to find a way to allow those living here ILLEGALLY to EARN citizenship" -----------------------About 5 years ago, we completely lost our way. Very sad and very damaging on so many levels. A party has put their ability to get votes ahead of the best interests of America. This kind of liberal thinking is another example why we have 17 million Americans out of work and our labor participation figures are at 30 year lows. The ONLY thing Obama and his cronies care about is getting re-elected. You poor sheep who actually think these slimy liberal fools care one bit about you is laughable. People here ILLEGALLY get a break if they go to our colleges via our tax dollars. Nice president you people picked. The new Obama America thanks you .

fines of $2,000? To provide amnesty for entering the country illegally or overstaying a visa and then what about fraud, perjury and identity theft?

Quit treating them like children! Have them pay back taxes and go to the back of the line of people following the established rules. That is the only fair way to do this. Make the rules clear, stop political posturing and people will earn the money to pay the fees.
