I (as well as many legally immigrated people) am not in favor of an amnesty for illegals. Naturally born American citizens, as well as those who followed the rules and worked hard to establish a life in this country, are suffering financially because the illegals are lowering the marketability of the workers skills, filling jobs that Americans could use and inhabiting affordable housing needed desperately by citizens and legally immigrated people.
Whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony, breaking the law should NEVER be rewarded. Children born to illegals should not be granted American citizenship – that practice/law needs to be changed immediately. It may be true that conditions in the homelands of the illegals are exceptionally difficult, but we can not afford to take on this burden and we should not have to.
Our schools and other civil services suffer from the burden, and whole towns, counties, and states are nearly bankrupt from the financial implications.
We need to find ways to fix the economy and severely reduce the unemployment rates. We send children to college for undergrad and masters degrees and then find out they are only employable as bar tenders… if at all. America has to be FOR Americans FIRST.
