    If Republicans were willing to provide a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, would the Democrats concede to closing the boarder first, eliminate anchor babies and make it a felony offense to cross the border illegally?

    I will compromise on immigration. If anything we are out of tricks to cause our property to artificially increase in price so we need more citizens to drive up demand.

    How about a tariff on funds foreign citizens send out of the country but a welcome mat to bring in the families of those who become citizens with good behavior. Something like work hard for the time of your three year work visa and your wife and kids can come in for free.

    We need more young healthy hard working folks.

    No, they wouldn't. Let's just be totally honest.

    The anchor baby issue is a tough one to address in that you have to understand how that even became possible in the first place.

    But I think everyone would agree, the fact we're 9 years out from 9/11 and we still haven't secured the ports and borders is a national disgrace.

    I'd add to your list, I want extreme penalties on folks that hire illegals to do work. Like "We shut down your business and bankrupt the owners" level penalties.

    Born in the USA isn't going to change and IMO, it shouldn't. But I'll be fucked if the GOP will give citizenship to 11 to 20 Million criminals...deport them all. We should be talking about how to aid Mexicans to rebuild Mexico, not how to absorb these people as if we here in the US have the Midas Touch.

    I agree, you need severe penalties on both fronts to combat this problem...make the fine for hiring illegals so costly that it dwarfs any payroll savings.

    For all intents and purposes we've already absorbed them. Better to think of this as triage. Let's stop the bleeding at the border using amnesty as leverage.
