(2) Some are for secure borders but would deny our country the tools necessary to achieve that goal.
(3) Some give lip service to the English language but oppose Official English.
(4) Some are in favor of employer sanctions but oppose the sanctions against the illegals that would create the disincentives necessary to buttress the physical barriers at the border.
(5) Some oppose the interests of their fellow citizens and the national interest and, instead, are intensely pro-illegal, favoring foreigners and foreign governments rather than supporting their own country.
(6) Use terms like racist, bigot, nativist, and others to describe citizens who disagree with them.
(7) Like ad hominem arguments because they don't have to think to advance those arguments. They can just appeal to emotion.

(5) Some believe that the 14th amendment has been regularly abused and therefore needs to be revised or reinterpreted.
(6) Some would make support of a revision of the 14th a test of loyalty.
(7) Some see a simple compromise for dealing with the illegals already in this country -- institute a stringent process for determining which of them hold jobs citizens would do if offered a fair wage and a hiring preference.
(8) Those who fail this process go to immigration appeals court to state their case for remaining. They must show why they should remain. No one is required to show why they should not.
(9) Most believe strongly in employer sanctions and in the employers' obligations to confirm the immigration status of every existing employee and every new employee.
(10) Most believe those who fail the immigration status test should be turned over to the ICE.
