How about if they don't learn English? Because they haven't and they won't, or at least ten million of them won't in any reasonable time. Can we deport THEM?

I’d guess that the 50% who voted “Yes” can’t read English.

50/50 at 07:45 CST...

I'd like to see this question directed ONLY at those immigrants who've entered this country LEGALLY, learned English, have their kids learn English and attend schools, obtained jobs, paid their taxes, and are proud of their new country.

Wonder what the percentage might be with that group?

Further, I don't know why the conservative news outlets do not hold interview after interview after interview with these wonderful new citizens asking them their viewpoint on "illegal immigration".

Most of them won’t agree to pay taxes, I’d wager. This “path to citizenship” stuff is just a ruse. Get their SS/Medicare/income taxes. And give them SS#s so they can track them. Most illegals aren’t going to like that, because most of them aren’t here because they want to become citizens. They are here to work, send money back to Mexico and then, someday, go back to Mexico. I’d say the “path to citizenship” is only going to appeal the very few. It’s a band-aid for a gushing spill. It won’t work. But they will probably succeed in trying. Knowing this bunch, it’ll be the law before November. But hopefully they won’t be citizens by November, and won’t be able to vote-—oh, never mind.

Hard to vote on this one. A yes vote is not that bad because I don’t believe any illegal immigrants will meet those conditions. But I voted no to be sure.

Funny how it was possible for tens of millions were able to leave Mexico and other places because it sucked in their home country, but it’s impossible for them to be made motivated to go back.

All you have to do is announce that illegals will be deported as we catch them, without undue delay, and start doing it. Many, if not most, will self deport.

Build a credible fence, man it reasonably well, give orders to shoot any rock throwers, shoot several, and that will be that. We will have control of our border, or they can try to invade us with the Mexican army.

The ones that are here illegaly should just think of it as the end of a long vacation. No offense, just GET THE HELL OUT OF MY COUNTRY, foreigner.

It’s sickening. When they get their heads out of you know where, we might have a little hope. I’m not holding my breath. Most people are in a daze. We are in a Twilight Zone.

At least our side is aware and will be better prepared for the coming troubles.

Pay a fine? What if they don’t pay? Are they going to be tracked down and deported. Don’t be silly. Learn English? Guess who has to pay to give them English lessons? More teachers. They broke the law and want us to pay!

Yep...50/50. Sad...

Of course the Mexicans would reciprocate...pay a fine, admit the crime, pay some taxes, and you, too, can stay in Mexico...in a Mexican prison.

Should illegal immigrants...pay taxes...

I assume they mean pay back taxes. My question is how will the IRS know how much money they earned while they were here illegally, unless they undergo an IRS audit? Like I went through a few years ago.

“Illegals aren't here to become American. They bring with them the corruption and crime of whatever craphole they are fleeing.”

First sentence is not necessarily true. Second sentence is not necessarily false.

There are illegal immigrants who want nothing than to become US citizens. There are others who are here to make a fast buck to send home to their families. There are others who are here to rob, rape, and murder. I'm sort of willing to find some way for the first to get what they want. I am not totally against finding some way for the second to do what they want, on a, shall we say, more FORMAL basis. That last group needs to go home as an urn of ashes.
