Please tell me whether the first statement or the second statement comes closer to your own view, even if neither is exactly right. 1) Congress can handle multiple issues at the same time. Tackling immigration reform this year along with other issues can help our economy by turning illegal immigrants into taxpayers and avoiding more serious problems in the future. 2) With the economy and health care reform already on Congress' plate, they should not try to tackle immigration reform this year. Congress should focus on getting things back on track before more Americans lose their jobs and their health care. (PRACNVL)

It's also the right thing to do. Our current system often separates families for years or even decades. It's time to replace our broken system with one that reflects our economic interests and the high value we place on families. 2) With the economy and health care reform already on Congress' plate, they should not try to tackle immigration reform this year.

28) Now, another set of statements. Please tell me whether the first statement or the second statement comes closer to your own view, even if neither is exactly right. 1) Any immigration reform plan must reflect our economic interests and our values as a nation. We must secure the border and crack down on employers who hire illegal immigrants. We must also require all illegal immigrants to register with the government and meet certain requirements including working, paying taxes, and learning English before having the opportunity to apply for citizenship. This approach reflects our commitment to the dignity of every person by giving everyone an opportunity to be responsible, contribute their fair share, and become full members of society. 2) Any immigration reform plan must focus on our national security and the economic well-being of the country. Offering citizenship to illegal immigrants who broke our laws amounts to amnesty. We must secure the border and make sure that people here illegally do not take advantage of taxpayer-funded services like education and health care. (MORALCVA)

30) Now, one final set of statements. Please tell me whether the first statement or the second statement comes closer to your own view, even if neither is exactly right. 1) We must secure the border and find a practical way of dealing with all the illegal immigrants who are already here. It's not realistic to force 12 million immigrants to leave the country. A better solution is to require all illegal immigrants to register with the government and meet certain requirements including working, paying taxes and learning English before having the opportunity to apply for citizenship. 2) Illegal immigrants have not played by the rules and have broken the law. They should not be allowed to become citizens and compete for jobs that are already hard to come by. They should not be allowed to take advantage of taxpayer-funded social services and should be sent back to their home countries. (PRACRVD)
