Romney was not elected because, foolishly, most voters have not considered this THE -- or even A -- major issue. Romney was consistently demonized by the "true" conservatives for not being pure enough and election results show that many stayed home. Ironically, on this, the most important issue, Romney was to the right of every candidate out there. Some, like Gingrich and Perry, were actually terrible on it. Illegal immigration IS the most important issue because amnesty can never be reversed, nor can the disastrous effects of it. Almost every other kind of legislation can.

And while you are at it, please note the nationalistic for their homelands many of the current group possess. Add that to the fact that groups like La Raza are already in place, already interfering in our political process (they have had influence in more than one White House in recent years). If you don't think that adds up to disaster, your brain isn't working.

No disastrous effects? You have no idea how many will be amnestied, but it is sure to be more than the idiotic 11 million talked about. That number may have applied years ago, but not now. And you honestly think that it will not cost this country trillions to implement this plus pay for the government programs illegals do not qualify for now but will then. Then there is the unemployment situation. How that will helped by throwing another 10 million or so into the labor market will not worsen an already bad situation only a non-thinking person like yourself could fantasize about. Then there is the likely obliteration of our culture: Think chain migation and higher birthrates.

Sorry, # two

Amnesty has no disastrous effects. You may be swallowing the usual BS about how illegal immigrants are "costing" taxpayers billions.

I t really isn't true. If the same outrage could only be re-directed against the abortion industry; wouldn't it be fine? Instead it's spent on hate rhetoric against taco vendors and garlic harvesters.

Although we have been hearing a lot from Washington lately about new immigration policy, it seems that our legislators are not listening! A recent Reuters/Ipsos survey found that the majority of Americans want illegal immigrants deported. Clearly the 53 percent of respondents who want all or most illegal immigrants deported are not getting used to the idea of easing immigration laws.

Reuters explains their findings by saying,

These results are in line with other polls in recent years, suggesting that people’s views on immigration have not changed dramatically since the immigration debate reignited in Congress last month, according...
