Re: “Study Says Granting Amnesty to Illegal Immigrants Would Boost Economy

Immigration is the way of the modern world it will never stop. I waited 6 years to receive a Green Card and went through the correct channels. I came from the UK a "civilised" country but for a small island we too have major issues with illegal immigrants.
I agree it is annoying to be paying into an overstretched system to provide illegal residents free NHS care, child benefit, education, social security, homes etc etc...but ask yourself why are these people so desperate to live in our countries? Not all illegal immigrants are bad people. Perhaps they want a better life and can't help where they were born. We should embrace immigration IF the immigrants are willing to work and become part of their community, learn their countries language, customs etc.
Making the illegal aliens legal would mean they would no longer be able to hide and would have to start paying their taxes and find work, as once legal you know where these people are. If they don't shape up ship them out!
Perhaps modern countries should wipe out debts from the poorer countries and instead of the take take take attitude....maybe give give give and let these poorer countries build economies then perhaps their residents won't be so quick to leave to invade other richer countries.
You'll be surprised how many natives leave their own countries in search of another life so there is always a minus figure too.
My only major grumble is that some settlers have clustered some areas, taken them over and reshaped them. Parts of England now remind me of downtown New Delhi but on the plus side you can eat the best curries! If you are looking for a job or go on vacation in South Florida make sure you can speak Spanish or Creole....Diversity is good but probably not when it has gone too far....
