What the Republicans are trying to do right now is win the hearts and minds of the Latino community by buying them off with this bill. It's a disgrace.
EXACTLY. To just legalize everyone is a slap in the face of every law abiding immigrant that came over and stood in line, paid the fees and got in legally. What a cop out. I wish I could pick what laws I wanted to abide by! I work with a guy who came over from Ireland 5 years ago and went through the legal procedures. He is more offended by this law then I am.
And, for Christ's sake, if you are trying to even make a case for your illegal ass to be here, don't walk on a protest carrying another nation's flag.
What they should do, instead of running away from their own country, is try to fix what's wrong with it.
