I have always been a supporter of immigration law. Every country does have the right to set under what terms someone can become a citizen. I don't like the idea of immigrants sneaking into this country, working under the radar, and taking advantage of local social services intended for citizens, not aliens. It has always riled me in California, the thought of millions of illegals taping local services, possibly working at less than minimum wage, and not paying taxes. It even riles me more thinking of the businesses that utilize such labor to maximize their profits while disenfranchising citizens of decent wages. But the current situation in the U.S. is a hopeless mess. First of all, we could not afford to round up every illegal alien and deport them. From what I've read, it would cost billions. Secondly they are filling a nitch of work that most average Americans won't consider, migrant farm labor. Thirdly if you could wave a magic wand and make every illegal alien vanish, our economy would collapse immediately. You've been to a hotel and see who is doing all of the house cleaning, right? (However, I do see citizens, if they got desperate enough would be working on the house cleaning staffs at hotels.) What's most disturbing is the cynical nature of Republicans, pushing through immigration laws to make their base happy while secretly not wanting to hurt big business. I feel, as with most things they (GOP) do, they are not being honest about their true feelings on the subject. In essence they serve two masters, the voters (the dummies who the GOP has to convince, is on their side) who allow them keep their jobs and big business who wants cheap illegal labor. If you look at the Georgia Immigration Bill passed in April 2011, it could cost the state $21 Billion in lost economic activity. Can it be argued that the state, illegal immigrant free, would readjust and recover these jobs? Just what is the lesser of evils? I admit to not having the answer. .
