    I support the legalization of undocumented provided all qualifications are met. We don’t need to offer law breakers an easy path to citizenship. Also, NO govt benes until and unless they become CITIZENS. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Forbidden-fruit effect. The Class of ’86 may have shown apathy and procrastination towards citizenship, but take the option away, and guess what? It will become a big deal faster than you can exclaim, “I thought we took this issue off the table…!” Simple human nature.

    Do the Rs really want to create a _new_ grievance that will keep immigrants’ U.S. citizen children united in suspicion of them, while doing little to discourage future amnesty-seekers?

    Lesson: the reach of your immigration policy should never exceed its ability to make immigrants feel welcome and civically engaged.

    Why should we make it easier to import parasites?
