    Rep. Schock on immigration: Supports path to citizenship, after border is secured

    Rep. Schock on immigration: Supports path to citizenship, after border is secured

    WASHINGTON–Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) said at a recent town hall in his central Illinois district that he supports a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants–after certain pre-conditions are met.

    The House left last week for a five-week summer break without taking up immigration measures; the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration overhaul bill in June on a 68-32 vote. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) voted yes.

    Schock said that after the border is secured, illegal immigrants who come forward, pay back taxes, have violated no laws should go on a probationary period and “then they can apply for citizenship and go to the back of the line.”

    I think that Schock is the first GOP Illinois House member to support a path to citizenship, a subject of much debate within the GOP.

    Those who say the border must be secure first are just looking for cover. The border will never be secure and everyone knows that. The problem is jobs, jobs, jobs! If politicians are serious about stopping illegal immigration take away the job magnet.
