    Many illegals already are paying taxes, but don't file tax returns that may bring attention to their illegal status. SS, Medicare and State and Federal Income Taxes are deducted from their checks (and may or may not reach the government, since many dishonest labor contractors keep these deductions without submitting them to the appropriate taxing agencies knowing that their "employees" are illegal).

    Learning English? Funny, for a person who supposedly "dedicated" his career to teaching ESL. Most immigrants can speak English. Many are reluctant to use their language skills for fear of getting it wrong. I deal with those people on a daily basis.

    I remember many of my own language screw ups when learning a new language. The first reaction of the listener is to make fun of the mistakes. I've had many a "Ha, Ha, I don't think you meant to use that word...hahahahaha!"

    Yeah, embarrassment is a huge reason for not attempting to use language skills.

    I don't think Pittsburgh Joe is going to be very happy with the way immigration reform is decided. Conservatives have no options even Graham knows that without embracing reform repubs are dead in the water. I for one would like to see conservatives follow Joe's advice but I don't see it happening
