I, personally, know a family of illegals. They are not illegal because they snuck across, but because the government refuses to let them become legal. Their green cards were revoked, but they didn't go home. They WANT to become Americans. They WANT to pay taxes. They WANT to assimilate. They don't want to make America into Mexico, but want to make themselves into Americans. Both the husband and wife own their own businesses.. They eck out a meager living because they can't do any job where anyone asks real questions. They have learned English and ASL (their kids are deaf) and try not to use Spanish and SSL. It's these kinds of immigrants we need to change the laws to let achieve citizenship (NOT amnesty). This is the sort of people that made America great. Does our immigration system need to be fixed? YES! Do we need to give amnesty to everyone? NO! Only the people who want to be here and have a desire to work should be let in. Of course, those folks wouldn't vote Democrat so they can't be let in....
