"It is a far better solution than ignoring the problem or trying to forciblly deport 12 million people."

So if the illegal immigrants couldn't work, because nobody would hire them, but by law (CA courts ruled Prop 187 illegal) you can't deny them benefits, such as welfare and medical, instead of working, they would all be on welfare.

So how would that improve the illegal immigrant problem?

Sounds like the voters in CA created this problem. Why don't they take away the incentive by repealing 187?

Perhaps if some were deported while seeking benefits, the problem might be less than you think. Maybe there will have to be some mass deportations, but I believe that most will not want to live where they can't make a living and have to live under the threat of discovery and deportation.

Maybe California needs to take another shot at 187. I don't know the answer.
