Estimated figures put 11 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. 75% are of Hispanic decent. Problem is Democrats and Republicans are looking at this problem not from a human being standpoint but from a statistical point of view. They are more worried as to how many of these people when given the opportunity will vote for their respective party.
Let's look at this problem this way. Most of these people if they have jobs are probably working for low wages. Thus once given citizenship will probably file for more food stamps and welfare. Of which both programs are hurting for funds. Where do we come up with the extra money? Our Congress can't balance a budget let alone find extra money.
These 11 million people came into this Country illegally and we want to now give them citizenship. What about the people who waited for years and did everything by the book. What do we tell these people, oh well. Problem will never go away until we finally get tough and deport illegals.
