Congressman Jeff Denham is right. The conservatives who want to send illegal immigrants back to Mexico are wrong.
I agree with the conservatives who want the borders closed. However, the conservative movement which stopped the recent legislation because they were against "amnesty" are not thinking about the results of sending 11 million people back to Mexico. Most of these people work, most pay Social Security taxes and all pay sales taxes. All of them are someone's customers. Our economy would suffer tremendously if they were all sent back. The economy is important to everyone.
A better solution is to close the border. Illegal immigrants who prove they have a job and are not criminals can stay as legal residents, not citizens. They can't vote. To become citizens, they would have to get in line just like other legal residents do now.
