There were too many threads that I wanted to reply to with the following:
In a perfect world, every immigrant would be legally documened and paying taxes on their wages. We all came to the United States via immigration. The next time you sit down for a meal ask yourself:
Who picked this vegetable?
Who milked this cow?
Who picked the cotton from which these clothes are made?
If every illegal immigrant is exported today, who will harvest the crops this fall?
The borders need to be secure. But immigrants need a fair and easy way to come across legally. And the ones that are living here need a fair and easy way to be properly documented.
