Excellent point Ms. Parker ! This past friday BLS released the statistic that there are 90 million Americans who are out of the labor force ! this is shocking and astounding ! The workforce participation rate is at the lowest point since 1979 . Yet the Gang of Eight and Obama are trying to ram another 12-20 million illegal aliens down our throat . This will not be the total as these illegals once legalized will sponsor their next of kin and that will mean another 50 million in ten years ! this massive flood of third world immigrants will destroy the job prospoect for black and hispanic Americans and deluge our welfare services (taxpyer funded) for decades. Amnesty is insaity. We must stop it : please sign up to NumbersUSA at their website

Over 100 million out of the labor force or seeking employment and yet according to the Gang of 8 and other amnnesty-pushers we are so desperate for labor that we need a Guest-worker plan included with the amnesty along with the plan to flood our country with even more uneeded legal immigrants.

When we pay so many not to work, the normal market forces that would bring these unemployed to jobs simply don't work. Why don't we just reduce the welfare payments, curtail immigration (legal and otherwise), and scuttle any amnesty. Let the market forces work instead of flooding our country with more unneeded labor.

A bi-partisan group of Senators, known as the Gang of 8, have put together a framework for the immigration reform that supposedly America is waiting for.

Provisions of the agreement have been widely leaked and, from what I see, these Senators should return to the drawing board.

If we are going to tackle immigration reform, there should be agreement at the outset on what objectives should be achieved. In my view, there should be three. It should enhance the freedom, fairness, and security of the nation. If not, why bother?

The Gang of 8 proposal makes no gains on any of...
