I have always been against offering a path to citizenship for illegal aliens. However, since the mid Bush years, we (US Government) have been trying to build a fence between the US and Mexico and we apparently are too inept to even accomplish that. This being said, while I still believe it is unfair to all those who have attempted to follow our rules to gain citizenship, if we truly do have +/- 12 million illegals working in this country, would we be better off getting them legalized and paying income taxes? Assuming at least SOME of the people employing illegals are also dodging payroll taxes, the possible revenue stream could be incredible and oh by the way, we could use the money. I am not sure how to feel on this issue anymore. Does our current debt and the need to decrease it outweigh what is "right" and/or "fair"?
