So you're fine with the Latino takeover as long as there's a slave-like subculture to *do the jobs Americans won't do*? Well, I don't mind people being in this country to work with proper ID, a sponsor, health checks and a clean criminal record and a willingness to go home after their work is finished.
But, to come here with the intention of forcing their way into our society, bypassing our legal restrictions, being a burden on our social services and generally abusing our hospitality, simply won't do.
The sad byproducts of this unwillingness to guard our borders will eventually result in another tragedy for America. Is it really worth it for cheap labor?

The policies that you advocate will create a permanent underclass, or as you put it, slave like subculture.
You say you do not not mind conditional workers, with ID, sponsor, health checks, etc, aka guest workers. But the fact is that there were 3 such plans put forward and none of them were able to get past the BorderBots. Plus the BorderBots have blocked the H1B temp visa increase.
This old crap about illegal versus legal has worn out. Obviously, the short run hispanic population growth in the US would be affected by whether or not the illegals are given legal status. But in the long run, it will have little effect on the total numbers. For example, more hispanics are entering Texas via the birth canal than by crossing the river.
Let me give you a another good example of the lie. The poster at the top of the thread quotes Sen Session's exxagerations about what would happen if CIRA were enacted. But Sen Sessions is not saying what will happen is CIRA is defeated. He is trying to appeal to your emotion, rather than you intellect.
