    Before they do anything they need to close the border to all illegal immigrants. If they want a path to citizenship it should be adults that were brought here as children and have assimilated into the society. Anyone that has not finished high school, learned English, been convicted of a crime should be deported. If someone wants to immigrate to the U.S.A. they should plan on becoming Americans. If they want to be Mexicans, Cubans, Haitians or any other nationality they should stay home. If you come here become American, America is for Americans, Others are not welcome.

    I believe the borders should be sealed and anyone in the country that is not an American citizen should be deported. Call them anything you would care to call them, but illegal aliens are nothing more than criminals. People that want to come to America should come in a way that is legal and with the intention to become Americans. This bullshit about Afro-Americans, Latino-Americans or any other group that feels it is necessary to put a hyphen between their ethnic background and American should either just say they are American or get the hell out of the country.

    Fantasy = This nation is built by immigrants
    Reality = Mexican Reconquista is taking back the southwest.

    I work as an Engineer. About 30% of the Engineers where I work were not born in this country
    When I go to the Emergency Room at the hospital, most of the doctors and nurses are not from this country
    Many of the stores, restaurants, gas stations and small businesses in my area are run by immigrants
    When I hire a contractor to do work on my home, many of his workers are not native born

    Immigrants built this country. They are still contributing to a major part of our economy

    We don't want to stop immigration, we want to stop ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT REALLY IMMIGRANTS, THEY ARE JUST CRIMINALS. If you take a good look at those engineers and store owners you will realize they did not cross the border illegally from Mexico. They came in legally from places like India and the Philippines where they got their education and and came here legally to contribute to the economy. We will also welcome anyone that comes here legally from Mexico. All immigrants should come here with a trade and ready to work and contribute to the economy and not live off the welfare we are so generous with.

    On topic is legal immigrants. You should specify if you are talking about the contribution legal immigrants made or all immigrants. You just said immigrants like you think they are the same.
