  •  The problem with the rebranding is (8+ / 0-)

    that the business lobby loves the current immigration laws, which let them have cheap labor that effectively has no rights (because, you know, it's hard to report labor violations when you might get deported at any time.)  Plus "illegal immigration" gives Republicans a convenient tool to rile up their base, so it's a win-win.

    The worst possible thing for both, of course, is giving them some sort of legal status, which would mean the businesses would be less able to exploit them (since they might have to worry about getting reported for violations) and a path to citizenship might mean they can eventually start voting.
