have been gutless wonders in regards to immigration issues. They're all afraid of alienating the Hispanic voting bloc and tiptoe around the issue.
I oppose all legislation that rewards illegal immigration. I doubly oppose programs that provide illegal aliens with preferential treatment over legal citizens (born or naturalized).
We also need to address the flaw in our system that generates "anchor babies", and creates the unreasonable situation where a child is a citizen and their parents are not. The solution to that is not to reward bad behavior by legalizing the parents, it's to recognize that legislation designed to ensure ex-slaves weren't denied citizenship is being used to provide access for illegal aliens.
And to be clear, this applies to ALL illiegal immigrants - Mexicans, Irish, Polish, etc...
