1. Illegal aliens are not imatgrmnis, they are foreign intruders.2. Mass legalization of illegal aliens discriminates based on race and national origin, since it would benefit 30 Latin Americans for every Asian, African, or European who benefited.3. The long waiting times for legal family imatgrmnis is the result of past amnestied illegal aliens and their sponsored relatives crowding into the the legal immigration system. Even if the numerical limits were raised to reduce waiting times, any new mass amnesty for illegal aliens would cause the same effect and the waiting times would again increase within a few years back to current levels.4. The US Commission on Immigration Reform stated: A properly regulated system of legal immigration is in the national interest of the United States. Properly regulated means legal. Illegal immigration is not in the national interest, it only benefits the illegal aliens, the greedy businesses who hire them, and the corrupt politicians who allow it.
