Nobody wants this "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" (=amnesty) junk, Susan. People want enforcement, enforcement, and more enforcement. Maybe, just maybe, if you get the border tightened up for a couple of years, then eventually we will get soft and go for some very limited amnesty for the very best behaving and more deeply settled illegals. EG the ones who have graduated high school AND served in the military AND had no criminal convictions. But a general amnesty, fuggedaboutit...

Janet -- Thank you for expressing your views. I welcome your comments, Of course, I disagree with you. Most Americans do want our broken immigration system to be fixed. Also, the majority of people favor a path to legal status for those who have been here for years, and who have already been contributing to our economy and society. CIR is not "amnesty" but earned legalization.

Border security is certainly a priority but is a separate problem -- we're talking about people who are already here, not those who are trying to come now.
