The Senate Gang of Eight has finally introduced their Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill, and it's far worse than anything that could have been imagined if you are one who believes in the rule of law and that our current immigration laws should be enforced of which I am one. And YES, it rewards illegal immigration by granting work permits and eventually citizenship to those who entered the country prior to 2012.

It also puts the interests of foreign workers ahead of the interests of American workers by increasing legal immigration by at least 50 percent over the next decade, until the unemployment rate reaches 8.5%. That's higher than the Obama administration believed the unemployment rate would ever reach in the current Great Recession. This does not count people who are underemployed or have given up looking for work. Can you imagine the effect that will have on driving down wages?

Supporters claim that illegal aliens would not be eligible for welfare and other benefits. This is only an accounting trick to allow them to exempt the bill from budget rules that require supermajorities for bills that increase the deficit. The truth is that once illegal aliens are granted their green cards years from now, they will qualify for all benefits, including Social Security, welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, and even subsidized Obamacare. The final cost for the bill could be trillions of dollars. Not billions, but trillions.

Moreover, even if the bill does contain strong, loophole-free language to this effect, it will only succeed in delaying -- not reducing -- the cost to taxpayer...Once the present illegal population receives green cards, they will be eligible under current law for a wide array of federal welfare programs including food stamps, Supplemental Security Income, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and Medicaid

Here are some of the outrageous elements of the bill:

•The bill will slow down immigration increases only if the unemployment rates surpass 8.5 percent.
•Amnestied illegal aliens will qualify as anchors so that their families can legally immigrate; in fact, their whole families will get extra points under the point system.
•The Department of Homeland Security can change the point system at any time, without congressional approval.

This is another instance of the corruption of our congressional representatives, trying to pull the wool over our eyes and get what is good for them and not for us. These people are criminals who need not only voted out of office but tried for treason.

How else do you expect the Victicrats to increase their voter base?

These illegal aliens are already criminals by the way they entered the country. Perfect Victicrat voters!
