Do you support or oppose a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants?
come in legally and I'll be standing there waiting to shake your hand and welcome you. come here illegally and your just a filthy vermin parasite that should be exterminated
I support the pathway we already have. Not all should be allowed to become citizens.
I support pathways for children that have to deal with their parents mistakes. Other than that, not really
I do support immigrants doing military service to gain citizenship though.
Why don't we just get rid of immigration. The free market will decides who stays and who is forced to leave.
There's already a pathway.
The pathway begins at the end of the line for legal immigration.
I don't understand why citizenship. Why not only a work permit or green card. That way if they commit a crime or don't pay taxes we can send them back.
Chinto ... we both know that you and I would be in jail -- or dead -- if we tried the same trick in their country.
I know, but we are not them. We have the highest standard of values in the world
Chinito ... given our president thumbs his nose at the laws of this country, and allows illegal aliens to continue to enter in record numbers, it's clear that we do not have standards or values.
At least Mexico protects its border!
Chinito ... only Democrats could view the mess we have as wrongly as you've described.
The fact is that MrO has DRAMATICALLY lowered our standards, allowing more illegal alien criminals to roam our streets, putting more citizens at risk.
They're criminals they broke the law, some have killed, brought disease, cost us
need special training, piss me off bec I have to listen to Spanish, tell the good part.
Yes, some type of procedure. But it shouldn't be easy or quick.
I've met a few illegals. Some want to stay but many are here to work, make some $$ and then go home to their families.
Not for illegal immigrants. Send them back and let them try again legally.
Can we afford it? What will happen to our economy without them?
Illegal immigrants are costing billions in tax fraud every year. I'd rather spend that money deporting them. I'm sure our economy will do fine without them. With a pathway to citizenship, we will eventually regain those original numbers.
1. Secure the border
2. Apply for amnesty
3. Pay fine
4. Background check
5. Get legal residence (Green Card)
Only path to citizenship is if you serve the country (military)
I support the existing laws for naturalizing, no jumping the line, just get in line and quit waiting it out for a freebee.
Yes, I absolutely "Support" "a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants". It's the same pathway I have ALWAYS supported, and it's actually quite simple: Rule of Law.
They HAVE a pathway to citizenship. The same one every naturalized citizen took.
Yes they do. We've had laws allowing for lawful immigration for well over 200 years.
A pathway is the only answer.
Yes, a pathway that includes deportation and starting at the end of the line, the legal way!
The U.S. can't afford to deport all illegals.
Blossom ... that's the beauty of it!
We actually are money AHEAD by deporting illegal aliens as that can't commit tax and welfare fraud! In addition, jobs would then be available for the able bodied lazy welfare cheating Americans.
The fact is we can't afford NOT to deport illegal aliens who have invaded our country!
At the moment, oppose. Our economy isn't growing fast enough to assimilate them. If we have robust economic growth, then maybe, after 4 years of military service. Otherwise, resident alien status.
They should have the opportunity to become a citizen. That means they have to pay taxes instead of just muching off us.
Let them get in line like the rest.
^spot on, they broke the law, politicians just look at the votes.
I don't like the fact that they came here illegally. So it's tough to decide
Does the pathway include a punishment and return trip to their home country where they get in the back of the line?
Sure, send them home but don't complain about the cost of doing it.
Of course not.
They steal about $50bil in fraudulent tax refunds every year. We'd be making money by deporting them.
Oppose. They have broken our laws and don't deserve a reward.
Treat these invaders the same way anyone who breaks into your house or place of business. In addition confiscate what property they possess under the Rico statute. Do the same for those that employ them. The ones we miss will self deport.
I support a very very strict path-to-citizenship.
Hey Jake, welcome back!
How have you been?
Busy but I'm still alive.
Ha, same here.
The only pathway to citizenship should be to ..
1. Exit the U.S., without delay
2. Lawfully apply for entry
3. Pay a penalty for having illegally entered the U.S.
4. Wait in line behind those who've never been an illegal alien
Support the one in place.
Jake!!! I'm glad you're back. :)
I was worried about you! I hope you're doing well. :)
Without a secure boarder it would be amnesty.
Holy shit! Jake!!!
Guess who's back, back again...
Jake's back, tell a friend
