    We give them a choice between

    1. Obeying the law
    1. Taking advantage of our generous offer to stay without citizenship and government benefits

    As opposed to making a citizen anyone who illegally comes here. Outrageous.

          NAFTA was passed, unions were broken, and corporations became persons with the ability to decide elections.

          It wasn't the immigrants who did that, it was corporate-libertarians, like CATO, RANDcorp, the Manhattan institute, and neo-liberals like Burrow owl.  

          Guest worker status gives these businesses even more power, with which they will use against American workers. Leaving no political recourse for guest workers, leaving them to be attacked.  

          Removing twelve million people will require a police state that will divide families and require massive amounts of violence.

          Either choice takes our humanity away with it. And it certainly isn't leaving us free to pursue the good life.

          since Reagan was elected?

          Why Sunny (brainless) Ronnie, Bush the First and War President Bush the Second have done to the middle class, with a lot of help from the DLC?
