Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"Ultimately we need to pass and implement comprehensive immigration reform that is humane and just, that does not separate families for years nor create immigration sanctions that will have vastly negative implications for the future (as was the case with IRCA). The chances of doing this are stronger with President Obama in office. While he cannot bring us the change we want all by himself, another four years with him in office could provide us with a greater chance of winning pro-immigrant federal immigration policies."
