There are people who immigrate illegally who are better citizens than some born here. They deserve a chance to prove it.
Besides, we're all illegal immigrants.
One of you will end up here next!
Whatever your issues are with some American citizens is irrelevant with respect to both law and justice for all American citizens.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.

The Associated Press ATLANTA — A farm labor shortage that left crops rotting in the fields after Georgia passed a law cracking down on illegal immigration shows the need for a retooled or expanded guest worker program for migrant laborers, Georgia's agriculture commissioner told a panel of Washington lawmakers Tuesday.
Commissioner Gary Black testified at a Senate subcommittee hearing on immigration enforcement and farm labor that an informal survey showed farmers of onions, watermelons and other handpicked crops lacked more than 11,000 workers during their spring and summer harvest. Farmers say that's because the Georgia immigration law scared off many migrant workers. Similar complaints are being heard in Alabama with its tough new law.
Financial incentives aimed at getting unemployed Georgians and even criminals on probation to take their place picking crops were marginally successful, Black said, because the new workers were too slow and often quit because of the strenuous labor involved..........."

FWIW, Elizabeth F. Cohen, associate professor at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, has an op-ed in today's edition of The Washington Post that discusses a path to citizenship for the nation's undocumented immigrants.
Loyalists’ actions prior to the founding could hardly be called exemplary, yet they sought citizenship after the nation was established...
In 1805 the Supreme Court heard the first case testing whether members of this population could be considered citizens. The court stated that, because the former Loyalists stayed while the states were debating and ratifying the Constitution, they were qualified for citizenship. This and later decisions showed how, over time, the country exercised reason and consent to create citizenship — even allowing the original sin of fighting against the formation of the nation to be forgiven...
Today we live in a robust democracy, not in a fragile young republic. Yet many people are afraid that naturalizing undocumented or temporary workers who have lived here for years will trivialize our immigration laws. We might learn from the example of our founders, who conquered a far greater fear when they gave citizenship to former Loyalists and created rules for naturalizing new immigrants. People become citizens when they invest years building their lives in this country. Denying them naturalization or selling legal status only to people who can afford high fees and legal expenses doesn’t make our border-control and immigration laws stronger. It makes them unfair.
Should illegal immigrants become citizens? Let’s ask the founding fathers. - The Washington Post
