    “Moderates”…….. BWAHAHA!!

    Making 20 million more illegal aliens legal is not a concern of just conservatives. Ask any of the Tens of millions of American blue collar workers or middle-class people looking
    work if this is a good idea.
    These mostly low-skilled and poor illegals will also be jumping onto Obamacare for subsidized healthcare paid for by us. So less jobs and higher taxes. Yay!

    Oh and before the liberal race card dealers start crying, this has Nothing to do with race. Kick out the illegal Irish, German and Englishmen too. Let them get in line.

    If you want to end the presence of illegal aliens in the USA, start locking up employers who hire them. Reagan wanted us to end the hiring loopholes when he granted amnesty in the 80’s. (thanks tigger) But a bipartisan group of legislators listened to the cries of their voters and donors who said they needed the labor the illegal aliens were providing so loopholes were installed and here we are again. Americans turning on Americans because our legislature didn’t do their jobs correctly.
    @ ConservGov – I have nuanced agreement with you, however, without the illegals working for substandard pay in labor intensive jobs in agriculture, chicken/hog factories, and construction, those industries swear they will be unable to find workers. Apparently, Americans want to be paid a reasonable wage especially when doing very hard work. What do you think we can do to make Americans willing to work in fields and chicken factories etc?

    Immigration reform should start with going after the companies who hire the illegal immigrants. If they can’t find work, they’ll stop crossing the borders. It’s supply and demand. You also see it with illegal drugs. No matter how tough anti-drug laws are, there will always be a supply as long as there is a demand.

    I will remind you that while illegal immigration may be blamed for so many people being out of work, the real problem is that companies keep sending manufacturing jobs overseas.

    Yes, it is the companies that hire illegals who need to be targeted, and strongly. That, as well as money being paid under the table, is keeping wages artificially low, and creating the sad reality of multiple families living under one roof. And, too bad if the hog farmers lose profits by having to pay living wages. It is a vile industry and the costs should reflect the carnage.

    If they are doing work that us Americans won’t do, then make all of them Guest Workers just like many of them are now. They get the privilege to work and make money here and then return home when done. I have no problem with that.
    Why do we need to suddenly make them citizens that will compete for jobs that Americans WILL do?

    I disagree with almost everything you wrote, Ansonia. Obama would love a bipartisan solution to sign. Joe Arpaio’s behavior is well documented and cases are proceeding through courts. Employee status is to be determined by the employer, not the police; though employers may or may not be made to report illegals who apply for work.
    I’ve presented my ideas for immigration reform over the last few months/years… what would YOU do?

    Not just Walmart, but they are the most active in “suggesting” their suppliers move operations overseas. It’s getting harder and harder to find any USA made products. Limiting impulse buys to only USA made products has cut my frivolous spending down to nearly nothing. I remember that while Sam Walton was alive, the local Walmart had a large display at the front of the store showcasing USA made products. They recently issued a press release promising to carry more USA made products again. Time will tell if they mean what they say or if it’s just PR BS.
