Pretty much everybody. It has been estimated that 80-90 Senators would vote for this.

Right now voting for this would be like voting for Obamacare. Pass the bill to find out what is in it.

I could not bless this until I see the detail. If it is based on the promise of enforcment again, I would likely oppose it. Reagan tried that and we now have 11 million failures of that promise in the U.S. Never Again.

They are talking about another serure ID again which would allow a person the work in the U.S. We already have the Social Security card which is not secure. Hopefully what ever they come up with will be a secure replacement, and not another new I.D.

Once and for all,these politicians start to wise up that white American are not the only race that makes up the U.S.What makes this country great is being made up from people from over the world that wants to improve their possibilities and at the same time improving this country with their energy,hope and loyalty and also with the rights and dues as everybody else and paying their fare share...delaying these working individuals that are already active cells making up the demographics this country and parents of citizens and future citizens themselves and not allowing them to integrate and interact in this society would be a big mistake that would create consecuences that everyone would regret,like making a whole generation being grown up under living their whole lives under fear,anger and discrimination and feeling their self esteem diminished and not letting them be as productive as everybody else and that is not a good thing for the U.S in the long run...

Well,if you read the article carefully you'll see that almost at the end it says that 65% of citizens support a path to legalization...

All illegal aliens who apply for this amnesty-by-a-bogus-name, need to be required to pay a $5,000 fine for entering the US illegaly, or a $5,000 fine for violating the terms of their visa.
They need to pay an additional $5,000 fine for being here present in violation of law, a separate crime every one of them has committed. And it should be $5,000 PER year they have lived here illegally.
In addition, if they have worked here, and did not pay taxes, they need to be held responsible for that crime, just like citizens are if we do not pay taxes. They need to pay all back taxes, with compounded interest and fines per year, and an additional $5,000 for violating tax laws while being here illegally.
If they worked here with a fraudulent ID and social security number, that is a felony crime. They need to charged with that felony crime and pay fines persuant to that crime, which is $250,000.00 or be deported without a hearing, with a felony record.
If illegal aliens have used any kind of social services, food stamps, medical etc...(including for their US born kids), they should have to pay the taxpayers back every penny they took, and in addition fined another $5,000 for ripping the taxpayers off.
Since they were not here legally, all illegal aliens with children who attended school should have to reimburse the taxpayers the entire cost of educating their children here.
They should be given a set time, such as within 90 days to pay all the fines, or they will be deported.
Any and all illegal aliens who do not pay the fines, do not apply for legalization, or who fail the application process, will be deported without hearings.
There should be no illegal alien allowed to apply for any amnesty until the border has been secured completely for at least 5 years, with not one single illegal alien entering illegally. Until that happens there cannot be any consideration of any kind of amnesty for illegal aliens.

Don't you know the majority claim they were brought here as children, have no memory, this is the ONLY country they have ties to, they pledge to OUR U.S. flag and are ALL more intelligent than others? I'm with you!

Sounds like a good start to me!

Hispanic group demands national amnesty for 11 million illegals

How America Can Defeat Amnesty and Reverse Illegal Immigration Again
http://www.alipac.us/content/how-america-can-...

Today in America, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Muslim-Americans and European-Americans share an uneasy if not cautious tolerance for each other across the land. The news reports didn’t talk about the American vote. They discussed the Hispanic vote, the black vote, the white vote and with the addition of another 20 to 30 million Muslims in a few decades—the Islamic vote.

As the American people allow themselves to be transformed into another kind of culture, i.e., a multicultural society, neither democrats who pander to the new cultural paradigm or the republicans who are trying to extend the old successful one—understand the destructive forces facing future generations of an “incompatible mixed bag” of American non-culture.

Comments suggesting amnesty from Boehner & Cantor were trial balloons. Extremely important that they hear that people are sticking pins in them

The country will be just fine. It is only the Republican party that is facing extinction. Face reality. They strung the anti-immigration crowd along while it was still useful for them, but now the Republicans are casting you aside.

In favor of everyone. We all pay taxes but 11 million illegal immigrants. They benefit from all the good America has to offer, take our money, sent it back home etc, and dont pay taxes or any hospital bills etc. America is more at loss than at gain at having illegal immigrants. The laws should be forced. No more illigal immigrants ever in this country, however something should be done with these 11 million.
