Here's a very simple lot us test to see who really wants what, both on this board and in Congress: pass a strict border security bill FIRST. No mention of citizenship whatsoever. 700 miles of double row fencing, an expansion of e-verify, and allow cooperation between ICE and local law enforcement to catch and deport.

Let's see how many on the left line up for such a bill.

You are probably correct; not many on the left would line up for that bill.. but not for the reason you assume (more Democratic voters).

The real reasons:

1. We can't afford it.
2. We don't need to go further down the road of a militarized state.. we've already gone too far.
3. A more effective strategy would be simply to penalize those who hire illegal aliens. (Of course we all know... that isn't going to happen)
