    Illegal immigrants in some pockets are a sizable chunk, and it might help people get elected if they were allowed to become citizens or shown a way to become citizens. This is electorate grooming, nothing else. Illegal immigration will always be the best way to get into the US. Playing by the rules - well, that's a long cut.

    Republicans say Democrats want amnesty because it will increase voters for the latter. I would like to see some credible sociological evidence of that.

    However, I do believe dead people vote Democratic by a large majority :)

    I want to say something about American society at large.
    The US still remains a racist society. Interracial marriage is still not viewed in a positive light by most people, it is even taboo in certain states. There is a stigma attached to marrying or dating certain races and into certain cultures/religions. Most white Americans do not look favourably at mixed race couples, especially where the man is visibly non white. Compare this to countries in South America where interracial marriage is the norm and area of ancestry has become relevant in choosing partners. WHat you see in the US is that under the guise of "preferences", racial discrimination is widely practiced. Until thi form of endogamy disappears from the US, it can not be a post racial society. The American whites will claim to support legal immigrants but the truth is that they never got blend in or get assimilated into the American society, that is to say, that American culture is not monolithic and is differentiated along racial lines.
