More left-wing dreaming....

When's the last time the border was locked down or the visas enforced? I remember some guys almost 12 years ago were here on expired visas, am I not correct? These people are pathetic. Don't enforce border control, don't enforce visas and don't make it expensive for business to hire illegals is the normal solution to the billions the taxpayers are paying for this problem in the states.

I know, business as usual no matter what we say or for whom we vote for. Tell me again there's a nickles difference between the parties!

Robert Reich (What Immigration Reform Could Mean for American Workers, and Why the AFL-CIO Is Embracing It)

Their agreement on is very preliminary and hasn’t yet even been blessed by the so-called Gang of Eight Senators working on immigration reform, but the mere fact that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and Chamber of Commerce President Thomas J. Donohue agreed on anything is remarkable.   The question is whether it’s a good deal for American workers. It is, and I’ll explain why in a moment. Under the agreement (arrived at last weekend) a limited number of temporary visas would be issued to foreign workers in low-skilled occupations, who could thereafter petition to become American citizens. The agreement is an important step toward a comprehensive immigration reform package to be introduced in the Senate later this month. Disagreement over allowing in low-skilled workers helped derail immigration reform in 2007. The unions don’t want foreign workers to take jobs away from Americans or depress American wages, while business groups obviously want the lowest-priced workers they can get their hands on.
