Why do House Republicans oppose the immigration bill?

"Immigration reform was very high on President George W. Bush's agenda. Republicans today would like to pass reforms, too. But the catch is what one means when the word "reform" is used. A huge amount of negotiation took place and was leading towards a compromise, but I believe the White House would rather have this as an issue than to solve it. I don't say this lightly, and I'm not making it up without hearing some of the details from the Members involved.

Republicans are big on obeying the law. Democrats are less so. They have successfully argued that an alien who is here illegally should not be described as an illegal alien. They invented the term "undocumented worker", but seem untroubled by the fact that many of them cannot find work. Democrats then argue that though they should be called undocumented, we should offer them drivers' licenses. They oppose deportations and support providing a broad array of taxpayer provided assistance to people who broke the law to come here. Of course our Constitution guarantees citizenship to their children born in the US, so the children are not illegal aliens. Democrats have pushed the DREAM act, noting that if a child was brought to the US by their parents before they were in any position to make a decision in the matter, we should not punish them.

Don't I sound mean? I know that's what you were thinking. But when we ease up on illegal immigration, we're merely encouraging more of it. And illegal immigration is a great evil for all involved. It's not the Republican Party that is happy that a huge underclass exists here in America, unable to report crimes (at least in their perception), unable to start businesses or complain to employers, living in constant fear.

Democrats do generally think that Republicans are heartless on this subject. It's their laudable love of humanity that leads them to be horrified by the notion of rounding up illegal aliens and deporting them to countries where conditions are deplorable. It's unthinkable that anyone would not be eager to support children, no matter what their legal status. I understand this motivation, and I believe it is honorable. Sadly, it encourages more illegal immigration.

There are many other answers on this subject on Quora. Republicans love legal immigration. The story of Texas' astonishing success in creating jobs is largely driven by immigration, not only from other states but from other countries.

By all means, let's open up trade with other countries so that it's possible to live in Mexico and other countries. Indeed, illegal immigration has slowed in the past few years because things are getting better in Mexico even while they are going "south" in the US at 100 miles an hour. We just don't have as much need for the labor as we once did.

Let's reform immigration. But as I discussed a couple of years ago, we simply cannot simply open our doors. I want every human to enjoy the same comforts and protections I do in the US. But here's my little sobering math problem: we have about 300 million residents in the US, and we might be able to absorb 3% population increases from immigration, but surely not much more. Those 9 million lucky people streaming in from all over the globe would still represent .1% of humanity, or one in a thousand. That's not inconsiderable, but it's just a fact that we cannot save the world no matter how much we'd like."
