    Dems just because there is no way for a path to citizenship.

    The point is to get 11 million people legal in the country. Stop the worry that they will be arrested and deported, and torn from their families/friends/jobs.

    Citizenship is nice, and certainly for the kids who were brought here and lived their whole lives, they should be given citizenship if they want it.  However, it would be a huge step forward to just let people get on with their lives legally for starters!!

    I have a couple of dear friends who are illegal. They have no interest in becoming citizens. They just don't want the wrath of the federal govt hanging over their heads day to day by not being in the country legally. They don't want their relationships ripped asunder by a deportation.

    Frankly, I'm not sure why someone who comes here illegally should be rewarded with citizenship, unless they are fully at the back of the line of everyone else who did  it legally.

    Corporations before people.... it's the American way!
