I don't know the answer to this problem as long as we have curruptos in both the dam and repub parties but I do know for a fact that the new "reasonable" approach ( amnesty ) suggested by Jeb Bush and other RInos is suicide. The idea being is that if you give up and just cave-in and go along with the dems, the Mexicans and other latinos will be thankful and later vote Republican. This is an illusion and will never happen. We will never get their votes. They vote for the hand outs and that's the domain of the Democrats. Once the tipping point comes ( it already has, sorry ) there will be so many latiinos in the country that the Republicans will never win another major national election.

I'm a lifelong labor Democrat and plenty of us Democrats don't want amnesty either. Why should we? Illegal aliens are SCABS who drive down wages for American workers and make it harder to negotiate for better benefits and working conditions.
Everyone in Washington is showing new interest in immigration reform. President Barack Obama needs to do something to cement the loyalty of Hispanics, who did so much to re-elect him. Republicans seem to grasp that they had better soften their hard line unless they want to forfeit any hope with Latinos and Asian-Americans.

Both sides also agree that a balanced, two-part approach is in order: stricter enforcement and improved border security on one hand and a pathway to legalization on the other. It's an excellent plan -- except for that first part.

To say we need more enforcement to seal the border is...
