People who enter our country should be expected to respect our laws. If they enter the country illegally, then they should expect deportation. I don't understand the fierce opposition. And, I am a 1st generation immigrant. Sure, I get the Democratic uproar: They believe that Hispanics will vote for them if they support for amnesty. Also, the Democrats believe that once felons obtain the right to vote, that they will mostly vote for other Democrats. What's next? How about lowering the voting age to 5? Obama's public school program is well on its way.
