So what does this do our citizenship process?
Nothing. They’d still have to pass a citizenship test in order to become citizens.
How does it denigrate those who put forth the effort to become legal citizens and productive members of our society?
Yes, some people get an easier ride while others get shit on. That’s life.
Does anyone think it is a good idea?
Yes, because the renovations to my office building may get finished quicker if Joe Blow contractor doesn’t get any of his immigrant workers deported.
Nope, just granted citizenship based on the fact that they are here.
I tend to disagree with letting them stay.
It completely demeans the point in being a citizen.
It is like letting kids graduate from highschool with out passing a class. Oh that happens now too.
You are going to undermine 600 million people for 12 million.
not to mention the toll it will take if universal healthcare does get put into place,
Are they going to be forced to pay taxes that they didn’t while they were working here illegaly, how can we track that, but then they will automatically get put into the social security system.
I don’t this should be a federal mandate, In PA we have an awesome mayor that is trying impose fines on business owners who hire illegals and rental owners who rent to them.
Push them out if they want to be here make them go through the proper steps.
