The fact of the matter is that these illegal immigrants broke the law and now want to be rewarded for living here and not being caught.
There is a large problem with them not paying taxes... But I am skeptical about what will happen if the US makes all of them legal immigrants. Will they actually start to pay their dues? What about the hundreds of illegal immigrants that cross the border every day anyway? Will we just wait 10 years and then make this next group all legal too? So instead of working hard to get into the US in the legal fashion, the new rule is that you can come here unlawfully and then just wait it out?
