I think he’s right, and it won’t “work” any more than the Reagan amnesty did. As long as our government-upwacked labor market prices citizen labor above a natural equilibrium, there will be a market for additional illegal workers.

I've already waned my anti amnesty congressman that we're still here and have no intent of giving up this fight.
Assuming there are 30 million illegals in America, that's enough to create some 50 congressional districts and they don't even need to vote to do it. If they do vote, you can pretty much count on those districts being almost exclusively democrat. As it is we don't know how many districts exist almost wholly due to the presence of illegals.
The costs of administering a single district must run into the millions. How much pork can a district seek? How many earmarks? What will all those new democrat congressmen vote for?
If you think Obamacare is bad, you haven't seen squat. Wait till the day all those democrats start dictating how many cars a family can have, what job you can have, or where you can live. Wait till they dictate that all paychecks come from government and you get a small cut of what is left over.
Illegals are nothing but government growth hormone and amnesty today is nothing short of treason.

(REMEMBER THE RIVER RAISIN!)
Our immigration policy has nothing to do with jobs. There is no correlation between the number of legal immigrants admitted annually--1.2 million--and our labor needs. The decade ending in 2010 saw more permanent legal immigrants enter this country in our history, 13.9 million, despite the fact that there was a net loss of jobs during that same period. We have 23 million Americans looking for jobs while we are importing hundreds of thousands of high school dropouts each year. It is insanity.

It will work for it’s real purpose. Huge voter block for the Democrats that like government goodies. If the Pubbies fall for this, they won’t win another national electtion in my lifetime.
