My great-grandparents were also legal immigrants. They handled their lives differently than today's illegals. They and millions of others assimilated while maintaining their ethnic heritage. Today we have 11 million illegal immigrants, it's an affront to the legal ones to just grant these people citizenship. BUT they have us right where they want us - We've been invaded and they've taken over.. We can't afford to send them all back or mete out justice. Border security is important to keep this from happening again. Mean time, its either a pathway to citizenship or they just stay here without any documents. Which is better?

Deny them ANY State or Federal benefits. We don't owe illegal anyone anything-and our borders are the most lax anywhere in the world INCLUDING those of Mexico. Just try to be an 'illegal' there and see where that lands you...

It costs nothing, and when the gravy train dries up, they'll go back-and if they want a fight, I say let's give to them.
Rarely does a political party issue a document so scathingly critical of itself and its most recent presidential nominee as the report of the five-member Growth and Opportunity Project of the Republican National Committee.

It refers to Mitt Romney on occasion as "our presidential nominee" and notes disapprovingly of his reference, in the debate about immigration, to "self-deportation."

And while the report states modestly, "We are not a policy committee," it does call for a policy -- "comprehensive immigration reform" -- that many, perhaps most, Republican members of Congress oppose.

I think there's some risk here for the Republican National Committee....
