I'm pretty sure there is a better way to go about this, The republicans pushing for this know this is gonna get turned down. They are just appealing to their constituents, Republicans will never be able to win the Latino vote so why not aggressively push this and win over some people on the fence. Liberals in turn are often putting a spin on it just saying it's "Racist". I'd like to see the Democrats in office including Obama explore better ways of handling illegal immigration which is obviously not happening.
I don't think anybody is also mentioning just how costly something like this would be, I mean incarcerating people is expensive and shouldn't Police officers have more important things to do rather than bring in Jorge because he doesn't have his papers? Illegal Immigration isn't going to stop but there are ways to curb the violence and cut the amount of people coming over. Legalizing all drugs would really take a bulk of violent illegals out of the picture but thats for a different discussion.
