Citizenship issue pushes buttons

Re: "Employers to be new targets of enforcement," May 1:

I applaud the Obama administration's new policies on immigration enforcement that seek to criminally prosecute employers who hire illegal immigrants.

However, I adamantly object to their long-range goal of rewarding the illegal immigrants who applied for these jobs with U.S. citizenship. I predict that the citizenship issue will continue to be the part of immigration reform that will anger most Americans.
