Burrkitty, I have always thought the idea you have is a great one. If we give them work visas, they can contribute to our society without fear of deportation and can, subsequently, work to achieve citizenship. We need these people to do the jobs our spoiled brat children, and some adults, find beneath them, or because the jobs are too physically demanding, to do. A huge majority of these people just want a better future for themselves and their children. THEY DESERVE A CHANCE. We must find a way or we will all pay, one way or another!
