I could support a plan very much like the one George W. Bush proposed whereby those here illegally for sevaral years would be given the opportunity to apply for Citizenship on a Fast Track system so long as they agreed to register, meet all the current Citizenship requirements, pay all taxes and Social Security payments that current citizens pay and abide by our laws. I could also support a "Guest Worker" program where employers would first be required to submit what their needs are and prove that current citizens weren't willing to preform those jobs and an accurate account of who comes and goes was maintained. This is how the Bracero Program worked back in the 1940s and 50s and it worked.

In other words, reward the criminals, penalize the law abiding. It's a sure fire way to increase crime.

Criminals are an important Democrat interest group. Like the Secretary of the
Treasury who didn't pay his taxes. Or the congressman who writes the tax laws who committed tax fraud. Or the President convicted of perjury. Or the Senator who left a woman to drown. Or the advisor who planted bombs. Or the Democratic districts that voted over 100% of the registered voters. what would Democrats do without their criminal base?

And what are you going to do about the NEXT 20 million who come here illegally for the same deal? Or about the relatives that your legalized workers are going to sponosr? And "paying taxes" will more likely turn out to be the rest of us giving THEM money, just as we did with the $4.2 BILLION we gave to illegal aliens who filed for the child tax credit last year using ITINs.

We first establish by amendment the only way to obtain US citizen by birth is to be born of two U.S. citizen parents. We then require proof of citizenship for all government services, including public education.

"Amnesty is already logical. No arguments" Precisely, what sort of LOGIC causes you to to even begin to think along those lines? My Wife of 42 years was delighted to "get in line " to be "green-carded and study for her Citizenship tests in Tallahassee. I will NEVER SUPPORT BLANKET AMNESTY, never!!

Several key provisions were missing from the Bush proposal, or so watered-down as to be meaningless -- such as proof of eligibility, criminal background checks, etc.

We do need a good guest worker program. As always, the devil is in the details.

Of all the misguided, corrupt and deranged ideas floating around inside the D.C. bubble, perhaps the single worst one is giving illegal aliens amnesty as part of some sort of attempt to capture the Hispanic vote. If the GOP were to pursue a policy that primarily benefits corrupt business owners, the government of Mexico, and Democrats at the expense of our country and our own base, we'd truly deserve the "Stupid Party" moniker that has so often been hung around our neck. This policy wouldn't be a calculated risk or even a longshot; it would be a game of Russian Roulette...
