    Nobody refers to murderers and rapists and other types of heinous crimes as 'illegals', immigrants who commit a misdemeanor were singled out for racist purposes.

    Pretty sure if anyone would be "illegal," it would be Ted Cruz.

    The conservatives have a decent if basic point against amnesty (or getting legal status for paying a fine), it WAS ALREADY DONE 30+ years ago and the problem of illegal immigration got worse, why should we believe doing something really similar or pretty similar now would work better?

    It depends on how you view immigration. The concept of allowing a large number of people to migrate here is not an issue for some people. Immigration control in the US has always been about racism.

    ^Racism is hardly the only reason someone could have to want to control, have any limits on something. It's not racist to dislike either the idea of unlimited immigration or of legal immigration processes being skipped.

    One could argue that it was a key factor to the US's success at the turn of the 19th century.
