    President Obama is essentially supporting the basics of S 2611.

    Create Secure Borders: Protect the integrity of our borders. Support additional personnel, infrastructure and technology on the border and at our ports of entry.

    What about the forty plus percent of illegal immigrants who enter the country legally, without ever having crossed a land border? "Enforce The Border" is just a code phrase for "Give More Millions To Boeing For Systems Which Don't Work".

    Improve Our Immigration System: Fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families together and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill.

    According to the Pew Hispanic Center, about 56% of all illegal immigrants are from Mexico. This is at the same time that the legal immigration system has been overridingly skewed towards allowing Mexican citizens to immigrate legally.

    Remove Incentives to Enter Illegally: Remove incentives to enter the country illegally by cracking down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants.

    Please read the diary.

    Bring People Out of the Shadows: Support a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.

    And exactly how does this change illegal immigration, and what happens if the illegal immigrant in question doesn't learn english in the required time.

    Illegal immigrants in the majority come to the U.S. to work, they don't come because they want to be U.S. citizens.

    By the way, the back of the line is not in the U.S. That illegal immigrants must go to "back of the line" is a crock of shit.

    Work with Mexico: Promote economic development in Mexico to decrease illegal immigration.

    Spend some time researching how much money the U.S. gives to Mexico currently, notwithstanding that remittances to Mexico now outstrips oil as Mexico's primary source of foreign capital.
