Immigration has not been brought up since both candidates have no plans to do what the majority of the people want & stop illegal immigration & the billions we spend to take care of illegals. It may become an issue whether they like it or not for at least a couple of reasons. With unemployment rising - people will start complaining that illegals are taking jobs from taxpayers. Second, Pelosi is opening her mouth again. I found the article on RCP. ... ath_1.html

Pelosi: No path to citizenship for illegal immigrants?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi campaigns Monday in Bloomington, Minn.

Buried deep in an Associated Press story recently about the prospects of another economic stimulus package is this intriguing admission by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Illegal immigrants may never earn a path to U.S. citizenship.

Pelosi also said Congress would have to tackle the politically sticky job of overhauling immigration laws in the new Congress, after a bipartisan measure collapsed last year.

The estimated 12 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally "are part of the U.S. economy. We cannot send them all home, and we cannot send them all to jail, so we have to address it," Pelosi said.

Any solution would have to be bipartisan, she said, so it may require sacrificing some of Democrats' past priorities, such as giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

"Maybe there never is a path to citizenship if you came here illegally," Pelosi said. "I would hope that there could be, but maybe there isn't."
