Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"Comprehensive immigration reform should seek to accomplish two major goals: providing some form of legal status to undocumented workers who meet certain conditions (knowledge of English, payment of taxes, absence of a criminal record) and ensuring that we don't immediately see the build-up of a new undocumented population -- due to continued lax enforcement and the perceived likelihood of a future legalization program."
