A “Path to Citizenship” for Current Illegal Aliens?


I came across this discussion between a Professor of Political Science and a former Justice Department official. Apart from discussing many alternatives that can be used to deal with illegal immigrants, the debate focuses on the issue of granting amnesty to approximately 12 million illegal immigrants. President Bush has already suggested a temporary foreign worker program, but do you think that granting amnesty to all illegal immigrants would be too much? Should we learn from the fiscal deficits that the American government has borne over the years due to the amnesty granted to illegal workers? Do you think that granting amnesty at this point in time will attract more illegal immigrants in the United States? What side of the fence are you on?
