    Wouldn't a path to citizenship and/or a "guest worker" program benefit everyone more

    Guest worker programs in the U.S. I know there are many that are convinced that the answer to illegal immigration is to create yet another guest worker program ... it's not.

    Well, yes, I suppose that's true; so when the price of fruits and vegetables go up at the market

    At what point did being a Democrat mean trying to get out of paying the true cost of goods and services?

    At what point are you going to stop blaming the Republican Party for declining wages and a disappearing middle class while you at the same incessantly quest for more 'cheaper stuff'?

      "It's not." That's it?  That's all you have?  Please expound.

      The GOP uses the "illegal immigration" issue to whip up their xenophobic base; illegal immigrants are a burden on our health care, our local, state and federally subsidized programs, etc. and so on.

      You say "the answer...."  I ask , what's the "question?"

      I never said I wasn't for paying the "true cost of goods and services," though, did I?

      I merely ask, what happens when those prices go up?  You KNOW it'll be used against Democrats, currently residing in the White House and holding a Senate majority.  You think the GOP would let a plum campaign point lay unused?
