I have never seen such vitriol in Townhall comments.
For the record, I'm a staunch free-market, small government Conservative, and I am against illegal immigration. I think we need to seal the borders and implement a rational immigration policy.
However, Bowyer is right about the reality that we're not going to get rid of the 12 million illegals in the country. Even if we cut them off from the legal workforce, they will simply work in the underground economy and with help from their legal relatives and American children.
We need to make them "legal" but without the right to ever gain full citizenship (therefore NO votes for the Dems, who perpetuate the current situation because they believe they'll get more votes).
