    There has always been a path to citizenship.

    Absolute nonsense. America is no differnent than other industrialised countries where it comes to the use of cheap labor in our early development. We, like every other nation, have been constantly working to correct the problem.

    However, let's be clear, migrant workers were not illegal per se in the period illegals were called wetbacks. And as time went by our government added protections for them, to protect them from virtual slavery. It was a series of hits and misses. For example, the Bracero program. It looked fine on the face of it, was supposed to mandate migrant workers have stable pay and working conditions. The program ended up being near institutional slavery. Some of the causes of that had to do with the migrants themselves - they started trying to stay and setting up shop on their own and, as work conditions improved (albeit slightly), they started to bring their families with them.

    The Hispanic people who voted for Bush were not illegal immigrants. They were citizens who had the right to vote. I'm not a Bush supporter like you appear to be, and immigrants should come to this country legally, following the set path to citizenship.

    Yes, President Bush was weak-kneed on the illegal issue.

    Citizens of hispanic heritage supported bush* because he supported a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants; not because bush* spoke spanish as you ignorantly claimed

    More likely they supported him because he was religious in an increasingly anti-religious time.
