Any ‘path to citizenship’ should entail a background check that includes cross checking voter registration. An applicant that has committed felony vote fraud by registering and voting while not a citizen should never become one. They have stolen votes from honest Americans.
Their mere presence in this country, the fact that they drive on our roads, take our jobs, enroll their children in schools, use our hospitals and increase our costs all constitute ongoing theft from the citizens of the United States. They steal from us, that is what illegal aliens do. They commit theft and they lie and cheat the system for their own benefit.
You’re assuming that said illegals have a single identity that is completely traceable through various government databases. The true criminal element among any population is probably going to slip through those background checks because of fraudulent SSN’s and numerous (mis)spellings of foreign names.
Besides, the Obama Justice Department will just certify anything they want. They are the lawless ones here.
