Sneak through border control breaking USA law, risk private prison time, go to the local immigration center, and pay taxes to obtain the rights of a citizen?
The quote from whitehouse.gov:
“It’s a plan that requires anyone who’s undocumented to get right with the law by paying their taxes and a penalty, learning English, and undergoing background checks before they can be eligible to earn citizenship. It requires every business and every worker to play by the same set of rules.”
What rules will be in play for how one is designated as “undocumented?” Will they fail a background check simply because they have never committed a crime and were born without any “legal” registration by men? Why is learning english of any importance? Were native Americans english speaking? If every worker were to play by the same set of rules… The world would finally be fully socialist with us all performing at the top of our abilities as needed to maintain paradise for our neighbors and ourselves… We would each work about 7 hours a week and few of us would even it call it work…
Will we trust the same wild west states, who already allow abuse to run rampant, to “legally” process the innocent men and women who only want a chance for what many believe is the only free nation.

America’s immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers and there are 11 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country.
Together we can build a fair, effective and common sense immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.
The President’s plan builds a smart, effective immigration system that continues efforts to secure our borders and cracks down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants. It’s a plan that requires anyone who’s undocumented to get right with the law by paying their taxes and a penalty, learning English, and undergoing background checks before they can be eligible to earn citizenship. It requires every business and every worker to play by the same set of rules.
There are four principles to the President’s common sense proposal:
The President’s proposal gives law enforcement the tools they need to make our communities safer from crime, enhances our infrastructure and technology, and strengthens our ability to remove criminals and apprehend and prosecute threats to our national security.
Legal immigration should be simple and efficient. The President’s proposal provides visas to foreign entrepreneurs looking to start businesses here, helps the most promising foreign graduate students in science and math stay in this country after graduation, and reunites families in a timely and humane manner.
The President’s proposal provides undocumented immigrants with a legal way to earn citizenship so they can come out of the shadows. It holds them accountable by requiring they pass background checks, pay taxes and a penalty, go to the back of the line, and learn English. It requires everyone to play by the same rules.
UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS LAW ENFORCEMENT
The President’s proposal is designed to stop businesses from exploiting the system by knowingly hiring undocumented workers. It holds these companies accountable, and gives employers who want to play by the rules a reliable way to verify that their employees are here legally.
