Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"Deportation of every illegal alien not only would turn the nation's back on this unique character, but would take years, consume valuable resources, and cripple the economy. On the other hand, the United States cannot condone rampant disregard of the rule of law and must exercise control of its borders...
A sensible beginning for reform might include a fast path to citizenship for alien children brought here illegally by their parents."
