OK, a first for me.  A positive post on Obama.  Yeah, I know, almost unbelievable... yet still true.  I thought given the mix of guys here this could be a great place for an open discussion.

Obama: Immigration overhaul is essential
Jun 19 02:14 PM US/Eastern

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he is committed to a comprehensive immigration overhaul that includes a way that illegal immigrants can become U.S. citizens.

Obama told a gathering of Hispanics on Friday that U.S. borders must be strengthened to thwart illegal immigration.

He said the millions of people who are now in the U.S. illegally should have the chance to become citizens. He said they must pay a fine and taxes, learn English and "go to the back of the line" of people trying to enter the United States from their home country.

He said employers should not be allowed to exploit illegal immigrants to drive down wages.

Here are my comments....

RELUCTANTLY, I agree with Obama on this.  I fear we must make them citizens as our country REQUIRES an increase in population to even have a HOPE of overcoming future costs of Social Security alone.  There have to be some additional things to follow this "citizenship" though....

Totally agree. I wonder if he will follow through?  Bush didn't.  I bet the big O doesn't either. We shall see.

They should pay a HUGE fine and PAY TAXES like everyone else.  Social Security, income taxes, TAXES TO FUND PUBLIC SCHOOL, etc...... and since it is probably coming.... HEALTH CARE TAXES TOO. We shall see if ANY of that comes to pass.  There should be NO FREE RIDE ANY LONGER.  It is time to "suck it up" and deal with things just like the immigrants over the last 300 years have done.

This anchor baby stuff has to end too.  Citizenship should NOT hinge on a "physical competition" with the winners who "manage to enter the country and give birth" getting to stay.

He said employers should not be allowed to exploit illegal immigrants to drive down wages.
Totally agree.  The playing field should be LEVEL and operate under the FREE MARKET SYSTEM, but I doubt that will happen.  They SHOULD be subject to the same minimum wage laws... although I will reserve the merits of a "federal minimum wage" at another time.

Might be another case of a politician "just talking", but at least these statements are in the ballpark of common sense for a change.

  Your right,AJ!  In fact ALOT of problems in this country could be solved simply by enforcing the existing laws that are on the books.

Meanwhile, if you are an American without a passport or enhanced drivers license, you can't come home.
