I am no expert, but in looking, I could not find one.There is a path to legal status. It requires returning to the country of origin and submitting the correct paperwork through the proper channels and waiting patiently.
If one has family here, there is a legal route to immigrate.
If one has specialized skills, there is a legal path to immigrate.
There are various ways to get here by visas.
But I could find no path for an ambitious, hard working poor person from another country to get a legal path to immigrate. Hell, I'm only qualified by birth and family, I am not qualified to immigrate.
This is an aberration from our history and culture. I believe, most opponents to "illegals" are as ignorant of the hurdles as I was. I believe, most such people, really don't understand how Ted Kennedy changed our immigration policy, for political purposes, and would be behind reform, if their real concerns were met.
I will post more in my journal, I don't want to further derail this thread.
