This is why I take the position of allowing immigrant workers to stay so long as they want to work.
Obama on immigration
Obama just said that it’s, “important for [immigrants] to learn English… so they can potentially pay a fine.”
LOL. This guy is the greatest politician. I don’t mean that as a compliment.

Not just if Romney is elected but if Obama is re-elected. Americans are leaving America in record numbers and some of them are denouncing their U.S. citizenship.
From RT News:
According to statistics from the US State Department, around 6.4 million Americans are either working or studying overseas, which Gallup says is the largest number ever for such statistic.
The polling organization came across the number after conducting surveys in 135 outside nations and the information behind the numbers reveal that this isn’t exactly a longtime coming either — numbers have skyrocketed only in recent years. In the 24 months before polling began, the number of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 living abroad managed to surge from barely 1 percent to over 5.1 percent. For those under the age span wishing to move overseas, the percentage has jumped in the same amount of time from 15 percent to 40.
While the United States of America was at one point (and largely still is) a magnet for foreigners in search of work, the statistics makes it clear that an opposite trend is quickly picking up steam.
No wonder Obama waved his magic wand and amnestied all those illegals. He was just happy that someone, anyone wanted to live here.
