Yes, but include stay at home moms also? They key word is "temporary" amnesty. To those opposed of amnesty, we already have it (Cubans touch US soil and can stay) If we implement amnesty and illegals don't behave under outlined regulations, they will get deported. 90% of illegals don't want handouts. How many illegals do you see on the corner asking for change? (I have never seen one) Now how many do you see asking for work? (Lots) They want to work, to better themselves and their families!

Why should someone who broke our law be given amnesty. Does that mean I can break a US law and not be penalized? They should be deported and then apply to come back legally. If a child of illegal immigrants is born in the US, that child should be considered an illegal as well. Giving illegals amnesty is unfair to all the people who are waiting to enter legally.

Yes, create a simple path to citizenship for immigrants with no criminal record and they pay back taxes or a fee.

Prosecute those hiring them and abusing them, if employers had to adhere to employment laws the rest would cease to be an issue. Stop punishing the victim.

@4QRT7BRfrom Illinois  answered…2yrs

The reason FDR, HST and DDE deported illegal immigrants (and their kids) was that Americans were looking for work. Americans don't need to be competing with illegal immigrants for their jobs.

@4TCS7JCfrom Kansas  answered…2yrs

An open border policy would allow worker's to enjoy the right to come work in the US without fear of breaking any immigration laws. This would take away the need for any amnesty.

@4Q4HBM9from California  answered…2yrs

How about we make a simpler worker visa program. Violate and you can never apply again

@4R9HLPRfrom Maryland  answered…2yrs

Since the 1980's we have had laws that required employers to obtain a W-9 form verifying the legal status of their employees - clearly, like gun laws, nothing is enforced, so we should just make more laws. These people should pay the price for their deception. We are taking poor care of our natural citizens, locking them away for absurdly small crimes all for the conviction rates of prosecutors, for the arrest rates of police and yet - we will take a person who knowingly broke the law, continues to break it every day and has taken an employment opportunity and probably some charitable dollars that could have gone to a US citizen and now because they were working illegally, we should give them a chance. NOPE, go back to the end of the line and start over.

Yes, create a simple path to citizenship for immigrants with no criminal record, fine companies that employ illegal immigrants. If you are a violent offender and illegal, you should be dropped in shark infested waters told to swim back where they came from.

@56WKM46from Florida  answered…2yrs

NO amnesty!! If they are illegal send them back & fine the companies that employ them. Once they are back in their own country, they can apply for a work visa and return legally!

@4RVBRRXfrom Maryland  answered…2yrs

@4QSCPMDfrom New Mexico  answered…2yrs

If they are working and have no criminal record they should be required to pass US citizenship requirements and must speak English and support American traditions, not insist on flaunting their former country's traditions. Those should be minimal and only within their homes or communities on special occasions.

Yes, allow residency (not citizenship) after a tax and an annual fee for non-criminals (barring immigration offenses) until they go through the legal process- if they can prove that they were employed and did not conspire to obtain taxpayer money/ benefits (food stamps, subsidized housing) save ones that they had no control over (subsidized water, public transportation).

@4WL8DSMfrom Virginia  answered…2yrs

Secure the border then give blanket immunity to all illegal immigrants and make them legal without voting privileges.

@4SNXDTMfrom South Carolina  answered…2yrs

I would like to say no but Americans are so spoiled by the US Gov. that they are too lazy to work. We may not have fruits and veggies in our groceries if we did not employ them.

oh we are so hung up on "illegals" - sounds like the "N" word in consonants - code word for
bigots and racists. Anyone remember how the Chinese were treated in 19th century?
Or Irish. This is a dang small planet - get over this us vs. them disease.

@jdodgefrom Louisiana  answered…2yrs

No amnesty, but allow them to stay as long as they are paying taxes and show proof of employment

@4SV49J3from California  answered…2yrs

I would like to see a program similar to the bracero program where they are allowed to work as long as they pay taxes and if there is no work they will return to their home country.

@4RPYB59from Louisiana  answered…2yrs

Put employers that use and abuse immigrants in prison, and let hard working immigrants live in peace. Stop referring to them as illegals!

Yes, if they work, are not criminals, pay taxes, and participate in society

@98TXTY9 from Pennsylvania answered…6 days

Allow them to stay temporarily but anyone born here is a citizen. To much overcrowding to give out paths to citizenship

@98TN9PVfrom Maine  answered…6 days

No, but if they are working in something advantageous to the country, i.e. in IT for example, then allow them to stay.

@84ZWD6LIndependent from Pennsylvania answered…1wk

No, they must be deported but can return once a work visa is approved

Yes, create a simple path to citizenship for immigrants with no criminal record and bring back wet foot dry foot policy

@98RVK7H from Utah answered…2wks

Allow them to continue working, but they need to either keep a valid Visa, or begin the citizenship process and be sponsored by their employer.

@98R9GRPRepublican from Iowa answered…2wks

Illegal immigrants should be given amnesty if they agree to apply for legal citizenship, otherwise they shouldn't be allowed to work in the US.

@98Q4JX7 from California answered…2wks

This is a state's issue and the federal government must stay out of it unless it threatens national security.

@98Q3PRSVeteran from Virginia answered…2wks

Yes, but only those undocumented (illegal) immigrants who are serving on Active Duty in the US Military may have amnesty and are eligible for US Citizenship upon Honorable Discharge or 5 years Honorable Service on Active Duty.

@98Q23KW from North Carolina answered…2wks

they can get temporary amnesty as long as 1. they pay taxes 2. have no criminal record from America or their country of origin and 3. they sign a contract saying they must take the US citizen test in one year and that that is their one chance to take it here. If they do not do it then they will be deported and will have to pass the test before coming back in.
