    Yeah that's a given.....but I am tired of the excuse that Americans don't want jobs. Or that we don't have Engineers and Professionals that can be employed. They need to start looking at getting these kids out working too.

    I live in Chicago and even to get to those kids and get them out of banging and doing nothing. I would offer seasonal jobs, even in other states. Even if they have to put them up in some dorm like facility. It would be cheaper than just bringing in people who will be as you say taking jobs from Americans. It gets them out of these ghettos and gang/drug infested neighborhoods. ( that's like looking at jobs in the agro sector ) Gets them making money and working. Hopefully letting them make that decision to avoid as much of the negativity as they possibly can. Summer jobs or Winter even. 3 months or more.

    Of course it is not thee answer. But we need to start getting thru to the youth of America. About working for what they want in life, and not looking towards any government to hand it to them. Which they will have to be taught and reminded that they need to save for the future. For themselves.

    The bill is terribly flawed and should be rejected.

    I support immigration reform, but not the Gang of 8. I think I agree with Rand Paul thoroughly on immigration.

    It's progress I suppose.

    The legal path to citizenship is demanding enough and makes legal people out of otherwise illegal people. I like the idea of more border guards and fences.

    I like the idea of putting the border guards and fence up first.

    There is much about this bill I do not know, however.

    I mean, the illegals are here. Something should be done to make things right on many fronts. I do not have the answers myself. I wish I did.

    My question is, if the illegals had no qualms about breaking immigration laws in the past, why would they care now? Will this bill actually do what it is meant to do or is it just another Big Brother expenditure to appease the masses? Is there any teeth to the violators of the bill once enacted?
