John Kasich GOP Candidate Says: “God Bless” Illegal Aliens -Give Them Path to Legaliztion

John Kasich on Immigration

"We have to finish the wall ... We have to make sure ... we're going to make sure we can control it ... For the 11 and a half million who are here, if they have not violated the law since they've been here I'd give them a path to legalization."   — Live 5 News

From Breitbart:
Illegal immigrants are “a critical part of our society” and should be provided a route to amnesty, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich tells a coalition of Hispanic company executives.
“For those that are here that have been law abiding, God bless them,” he told the business group, which is a major advocate for expanded immigration.
“Then I think the [illegals] should have a path to legalization… I think that can pass,” Kasich said, using one of the euphemisms for granting legal residency to illegal immigrants.
The Ohio governor also claimed the illegal immigrants are skilled. The illegals “are a critical part of our society from doctors to engineers to lawyers– well, I don’t know if we need more of them [lawyers]– but we’ve got a lot of teachers, whatever,” he said.
Kasich also told the group that one of his top priorities is “expand[ing] the guest workers.”
