The legal immigrants want to assimilate into American culture, become citizens the right way, and actually contribute something to the country besides being part of the Dem voting bloc and becoming a welfare statistic.
Which means, Obama puts them at the end of the line.

As illegal immigrants continue to seek legal status under Obama’s executive actions, the waiting list to enter the United States legally grows longer, as does the waiting time for those in the pipeline.
American born Jimmy Gugliotta, who currently lives in Santiago, Chile, with his Argentinian wife and their children, has been waiting more than a year and a half for visas to bring his family to the U.S. He doesn’t understand why going through the process legally puts him behind people who sneak into the U.S. illegally.
“It’s really sad to see that we’ve been put in the back seat,” Gugliotta told Fox News via email. “What I found outrageous is people like me, a U.S. citizen, are actually being put at the back of the line, and that to me is a total outrage.”
The waiting list for those trying to enter the U.S. legally now stands at 4.4 million, 100,000 more than last year. Some have been on the list for more than 15 years. Even though the spouses and children of U.S citizens are supposed to get priority, even their wait times have jumped from as little as two months to up 18 months as the administration deals with a surge of illegal immigrants given lawful status by president Obama.
“I’ve had people tell me, ‘Why don’t you just show up at the border and try to get across?'” said Gugliotta. “I say, ‘No, we want to do this thing right.'”
The poor guy just doesn’t get it. DemProgs need a demographic to exploit. The way to do that is to portray illegals as political martyrs.
……”I think most Americans are upset that the legal immigration system that was set up by Congress has been completely dismembered and distorted in this way to benefit people who came here originally illegally.
“What message does this send to people who are trying to do it the right way?” says Jessica Vaughn, of the Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that favors stronger controls on illegal immigration.
Vaughn said is is not only disheartening, but unfair, when those waiting their turn and paying thousands of dollars in fees are leapfrogged by people crossing over from Mexico illegally.
Of course it’s not fair. Obama and his cabal of criminals are not interested in fairness. They’re only interested in what benefits them.
The United States is no longer a melting pot, but a land that is rapidly becoming Balkanized. Illegals have no intention of paying taxes, adopting American traditions, or becoming citizens. They have established their own colonies on this soil; refusing to assimilate. They’ve been getting a free ride for so long, they think it’s an entitlement. We have enough able-bodied people who use welfare as an income, we should not add illegals to the public dole.
They want all the benefits, but none of the responsibilities. They want free healthcare, education, and welfare. All we have to do is pay for it. The illegal immigration pimps might derive some sort of smug satisfaction from providing them their freedoms and benefits at our expense, but the rest of us are sick of footing the bill for an entire class of derelicts who come here with nothing more than a list of demands.
