TuteTibiImperes: Let's make this easy and just get on with amnesty already.


I'm for this, with a path to citizenship five or ten years down the road. We need to stop pretending these people don't exist, or that they deserve to live in the shadows and off the books. It is wrong to exploit their lack of labor rights simply because they have no legal recourse, and it is wrong to have INS go in and break up families and send people who want to be American citizens "home" just because. We can't keep these people out, we've tried.

I have respect for the people who come here legally, but it is hard to not have respect for someone who sets out through the desert, facing dehydration and death, spending every peso to their name paying some murderous cartel coyote to get them past the checkpoints for a slim chance at the American dream. If that person isn't crooked or criminal then I'd say they passed the test, a fine addition to our country. And since we can't stop them, we should at least learn their names and give them some residency paperwork.

I remember one when I played basketball at a local park always talked shiat, but only with his bros were there with him. I told him how tough he acted when his buddies were around as backup and he stfu after that.

BMFPitt: Nutsac_Jim: If someone broke in to your house, can they be prohibited from being removed by asserting that you want them out of your house 'just because' ?  No.  It is because they have no permission to be there.

The problem being that you share the house with 300 million roommates and you want to be able to kick their friends who were invited out.


The roommate agreement clearly states no overnight guests, so they get kicked out.

1. The feds don't really "have a problem" with it, they're just saying it won't be a DHS-recognized form of ID. Big deal.

2. CA passed a law requiring something to be put in place without thinking about the practicalities of implementation? Color me shocked.

3. Those of you who equate illegal immigration to an actual "crime" are idiots. No one's rights are being violated by someone being here without proper approval and documentation. It's a procedural violation, and should be handled as a civil rather than criminal matter. However, I'm willing to concede your point if you all agree that things like not getting a proper permit for your deck or waiting too long to re-register your car should also result in a SWAT team bearing down on you to send your lilly white ass to PMITA prison.

Which would be?

Well, it would depend a little on the exact time of the immigration, but from 1880s until the Immigration Act of 1924, if you were from a "desirable" country in Europe, it was pretty much "Welcome to America!"


That's how it works today for people from the "desirable" part of Mexico.  There just don't happen to actually be any.

You don't address the comments of others like what would occur in a real debate.

Dr Jack Badofsky: And yet, thousands of people from other countries, and very many whom are educated at that, wait 7-10 years to get proper documentation to become citizens here. We should adopt Canada's requirements.


I'm glad they decided to come here out of choice and with the means to support themselves and not out of desperation to feed their families and themselves because their origin country has large areas of massive shiat holes. Shiat hole enough that the poor wages they're paid under the table to work a field trump whatever honest work they could find down there. A lot of them want to come here to better themselves or their their families. That's exactly why many other immigrants from several other countries came here. I don't see why we make it so expensive to be a part of this country so that so many have to sneak in. They are no different then others that come here legally with the exception that those others were successful in their own country enough to be able to afford to come here.

And that's it. It comes down to money. Not fences, not security. Money. You don't have money, we don't want you here.

Whoa now, Laredo is great for export businesses. Do you know what that'd do to the rates of getting material there to freight forwarders I work with?

Make it El Paso, no one cares about that city.


Look, I just needed somewhere fairly centrally located on the border. Laredo's got I-35, so there's infrastructure in place. Besides, if you put the facility in El Paso, people would say "I'd rather stay in my third-world nation than go there".

so what laws can we just get around then?  how many other countries have an issue w/ illegal immigrants, and what do they do?

Is it THAT hard to come over her legally?  or are they doing it to avoid the costs of being a citizen?  Or because they are criminals?


There is a chance many become criminals because they can't get a decent job because they don't have residency paperwork because it takes an inordinate amount of time and money to gain full citizenship and while this might be the "Land of the Free", you still have to make money somehow to survive.
