If we waved a magic wand and all illegals became legal, what would that solve?

It would solve nothing, it would only make the problem larger.

What would that solve? It would impose order, control, expanded tax base from legal productive workers, and an end to bicker over laws that cannot be enforced and only lead to further disrespect for the law in general.

With order and control, guest workers could contribute to society legally (can you say taxes?), but since they're not citizens, their influence and drain on resources limited to citizens would be mitigated.

A path to reasonable path citizenship could be made and millions of hardworking people could become Americans.

The majority of Hispanics are natural GOP constituents, fiscally and socially conservative with strong family values. This is a no-brainer.

Obviously you have no brain, come live in Maywood California, there are no conservative Hispanics here.
There may be no single, simple explanation why Mitt Romney lost the election this week -- but clearly the perception that the GOP is anti-Hispanic didn't help. For years, I've been warning my fellow conservatives that their position on immigration would be costly, not just politically but for the economy as well.

The election results definitively proved the former. The Hispanic vote was decisive in denying Romney a win in Colorado, Nevada, Florida and possibly Virginia. Without winning more Hispanic votes, the Republican Party may be doomed to permanent minority status.

Hispanics are the fastest growing population in the country....
