Up here in Canada, I am wondering about the American reaction to the republicans and the president both announcing plans to "fix"

immigration? what should these reforms look like. do you think reform will happen soon and will undocumented residents get a path to citizenship?

I sure hope so. There are so many here. They live like dogs in shanties. Many have been here more than half their lives. They want to be treated as people. Without them crops die in the fields and we whites or/ black won't pick them. They do all the domestic work in hotels. Jobs we don't want. If we bring them in as proposed we can pick and choose who we need here and they will pay taxes which will help our national debt situation. People are being forced, yes forced to marry and have babies to stay here. This is not right. They aren't tasking jobs from us they are doing the jobs we don't want. In Canada my cousin has a huge apple orchard and flies in workers from Jamaica everything paid in order to get his apples harvested. Canadians wont do such menial jobs. Same for the tobacco pickers. We really need to think things through and welcome them for what they bring to our countries.

I do not know. It is all smoke and mirrors. There is not a damn thing we can do about it. I feel we are on a sinking ship. The whole world has gone crazy. Everytime I turn on the news it is just one more thing. So I just watch other stuff and not get my hopes up.

If our economy doesn't pick up, we won't have to worry about it! they can be poor in their own country.

That really doesn't address the 12 million people there right now.

The basic principle is, "If they live here and work here, they stay here."

That's what's already happened and I guess that's OK or since we can't do anything about it just throw up our hands. It's a lot like a little leak in a dam that kept getting bigger till the dam finally breaks .

When I visited Canada the Border Immigration Agent always asked the purpose of my visit and how long I was staying. If I was lying and overstayed my visit I should have been returned to the USA. If I crossed over through an open field ( which I never did) I should be arrested . Is there just a strength in numbers argument for the " aw shucks" attitude about illegal immigration we see today.?
You can enter a foreign country legally as a tourist and just decide to stay there illegally. That is not the way we should be allowed to become citizens of any country.
