    This is an important step in the right direction. Immigration reform needs to include a path toward legalization for all good hardworking people who have been living here for a specified time, especially for people in mixed families, for agricultural workers, and for youth (The Dream Act).As a nation of immigrants, it is in our best interest to do this.

    Absolutely, I agree with Dorothy Foster. Enough of the race game and lets “Live & Let Live”. These people are human beings just like us and are a part of our society. They are an integral part of our work force and although alot of people might hate to admit it, they are the ones that do almost all of the dirty jobs we might not want to do. I do understand the professional conpetition and the fear of alot of people, but at the same time, I don’t think Americans should wanna compete for those jobs anyways. If we feel we’ve gotta compete with an illegal for a janitorial position, shame on us and I think it is time to head back for some schooling.
