The problem I have with the current system is that immediately we are offering these immigrants, legal or illegal a "path to citizenship". Has the federal government really taken a minute to ask these people if they want to become American Citizens? I know lots of people who are permanent residents (have a green card)...who do not want to become American citizens. Even though some are on welfare, social security or disability and have been told it would be wise to become Citizens, they refuse. Forget the fact that they also refuse to learn english.....why should they? The government provides them with forms in spanish, translators ,agencies and Legal Aid that they can turn to if they need further assistance.
