Sounds dangerously like a carrot. As long as things aren't defined, it's real easy constantly dangle the idea of citizenship to the workers without every really going through any meaningful reform.

Then you can say "We tried reform and it just doesn't work" while continuing to go forward with the backwards, harmful, and lazy regulations we have today without ever really trying anything different at all.

I like what I hear from Rubio.

how far have you actually delved into his political views? i hear a lot of moderates saying they like Rubio, but don't seem to realize he's two steps to the right of Pat Robertson.

"border security" could be revamped simply by making BCIS actually, you know, work

Why is it many of the same people who see the war on drugs and gun restrictions as untenable turn around and treat the war on immigration like it's just a matter of will?

Because people are harder to hide off the grid than an inanimate object.

So blind hypocrisy is the answer.
