Sorry Linda, illegal is illegal. American is American. I, like other Americans, come from immigrants. Yet, I'm an American; without any reservation. 70% or more of Hispanics vote for the Democratic party and (as a demographic) are net plus government services comsumers (heathcare; housing subsidies; welfare). Why in God's Green Earth would the Republican Party want to legalize Democratic voters. What do you suppose the fight against Voter ID was all about? I don't really think the Democrats were worried about some old lady showing up without any ID. The only reason illegal immigration is down is because of the American economy. Period. Border patrol has been effectively defunded by the administration.
