it doesn't even take 10 reasons when it is more than obvious( polls!) that is what MOST AMERICANS WANT.
Should be enough reason for govt to act!(in a demoracy at least, that is)

And the 11th commandment is that it is the moral imperative and most ethical thing to do

I agree - but here in UK - we struggle to understand why Obama is given such a hard time for trying to do the right thing.
Thanks Carrie

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Reagan did it so many years ago....and it's time for a renewal of our pledge as a "humanitarian" country.

Unless Obama changes his liberal attitude toward illegal immigration, he will get no where. The statement about our borders being more secure than ever is a flat out lie. Arizona, New Mexico, Calif. have no additional federal support to secure these borders.
This is not policy, it's political garbage. Put up a damn wall between Mexico and these states with check points,

We need immigration reform because, for one thing, we are a nation of immigrants (except for the native Americans against whom we perpetrated, or tried to do so, genocide); also, I see the hidden, hiding illegals as virtual slaves here. we know they are here, doing the work the rest of us often snub our noses at, and being underpaid, etc.

я просила не иммиграционную визу В2, чтобы просто навестить друзей, которые живут в США. В ней мне было отказано. Формулировка отказа унизила и оскорбила мое чувство национальной гордости. Отказ был на основании того, что я не смогла убедить консульского офицера, что у меня есть крепкие связи со своей страной. Меня не надо учить как любить свою Родину и рассматривать как потенциального иммигранта, те кто хочет уехать навсегда просят иммиграционные визы. Так предвзято относятся ко всем жителям Восточной Европы. Я бы очень хотела посмотреть на реакцию француза, немца или англичанина если бы ему предложили доказать что он не является потенциальным иммигрантом.
