Not only is this the right solution for emotional reasons, it is smart financially thing to do. We have allowed illegals a path to citizens under the Regan administration. We need to find similar solutions today. This law is the first step. People may have come here illegally but our leaders turned a blind eye to these people for decades. We don't get to give a nod and wink to coming here then switch policy and send the immigrants back to their country of origin, especially the children.
