CNN) -- On Thursday, we will link arms with more than 100 women and claim the street outside the House of Representatives. We will not move until the House recognizes that women and children are at the heart of the immigration debate, and reform must treat them fairly.
Women and children constitute three-quarters of all immigrants to the United States, but the debate about immigration reform -- which has stalled in the House -- has largely ignored the disproportionate burden they bear in a system that is failing.
Immigrant women make outsize contributions to our families, communities and country.
But they are denied core American values -- the right to equal opportunity and equal treatment under the law. Although women make up 51% of U.S. immigrants, only 28% of work visas are given to them as principal holders. Women disproportionately work in paperless or informal economies -- as nannies, housekeepers, home health care workers -- that don't get awarded work visas.
These jobs rarely provide proof of employment, such as a pay stub at the end of the week. While many immigrant men face this challenge as well, women are disproportionately affected by it. Immigration reform efforts that link eligibility for citizenship to proof of employment fail to recognize the essential work that many immigrant women provide in these crucial roles.

Everyday Americans from all walks of life demonstrate incredible courage and take enormous risks to contribute to the well-being and success of their families and loved ones. They move across the United States to give their children better lives; they work so that their families will have food on the table; they take care of the young and the old; they open businesses.
While the majority of Americans recognize that the time is now to fix our immigration system........This is certainly news to me.CNN must be refering to John McCain's fake polls..More and more Americans want to send the illegal aliens back home.We are sick and tried of their attitudes,like we owe them something, using intimidation storming into gov offices commanding and demanding ,trying to change our laws by mob rule.Flaunting our laws and carrying Mexican flags demanding we meet their demands and using the race card every chance they get !
Jail them, then deport them.
Note that even the ridiculously watered down merit immigration provisions of the Senate bill are unacceptable to these people. They will not be satisified until there are no immigration controls at all, and the entire nation that our forebearers carved from the wilderness is laid-open for the plunder of the world.
Read “Camp of the Saints” if you want to know where this is going.
Get lost, parasites.
“immigrant women”=criminaliens, female
Line ‘em all
Against a wall—
Arrest ‘em, perpendicular
THAT Ruling (anchor babies are U.S. Citizens at birth on U.S. Soil) is the start of the whole mess....Foreigners sneaking into the country, who are Foreign Nationals, were encouraged to come to the USA, and partake of "Los Freebies" via the new baby being a U.S. Citizen, etc.
Why do we put up with this sh!t?

with a legal visa they get a legal pay stub and qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit up to $3500, plus probably and EBT card.

I said the same a few years back when the economy was real bad % Unemployment was 10% plus to create jobs.
Ask them if they heard of the Colorado recalls on gun control. Same result for Shamnesty.
Many will fall on their swards to get it done.
Once passed it will be impossible to undo.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
