American Citizens are you rewarded if you break the law, or do you receive punishment under the law. Obama says illegal law-breakers should receive impunity to the laws that you as a citizen must obey. How does that work for you?? What effect will this have on the already tenuous US economy; how many more millions will be added to the welfare rolls for American taxpayers to support, and how will this affect the already over-populated prison systems??
On the other side of the amnesty coin, does this current amnesty include/apply to the thousands of American-hating terrorists (HAMAS, Hez b'allah, jihad islami, boko haram) who have infiltrated the country through Mexico with the smugglers alongside the illegal Mexicans, Hondurans, etc.??

Left-wingers are once again pushing a so-called comprehensive immigration reform package that helps their cause more than it helps America.
The proposal, still in rough outline, was unveiled at a Capitol Hill press conference Monday. It makes vague promises, the same promises that have been echoing in the corridors of power for decades, of finally enforcing the nation’s porous border with Mexico. It comes days after left-wing groups vowed to lay the groundwork to turn Texas deep Democrat blue.
The plan is backed by a bipartisan group of senators known informally as the Gang of 8. The four Democrats are Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (Illinois), Robert Menendez (New Jersey), Chuck Schumer (New York), and Michael Bennet (Colorado). The Republican half of the gang consists of John McCain (Arizona), Marco Rubio (Florida), Lindsey Graham (South Carolina), and freshman senator Jeff Flake (Arizona).
The proposal has less to do with helping immigrants, legal or otherwise, and more to do with helping politicians. Democrats know that the legislation will secure their party more votes.“This legislation is all about the Democrats bringing in new voters who will assure them of a permanent leftist majority,” writes Paul Mirengoff at Power Line.
Radicals’ goal is to use immigration to subvert the American system, just as it has been since the 1960s when the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) shepherded reform of that era’s immigration laws through Congress. The concept is simple: Flood America with people who don’t share Americans’ traditional philosophical commitment to the rule of law, limited government and free markets, in order to force changes in society.
Candidates from the increasingly extreme Democratic Party traditionally fare well among new Americans and even better among those voting illegally.
Some illegal immigrants not only vote illegally, but also illegally help bring Democratic voters to the polls. In the recent election, Democrats enlisted thousands of young illegal immigrants to drag Democratic supporters to the polls.
Yesterday President Obama served notice he intends to harangue Congress into passing the upcoming immigration legislation.
“If Congress is unable to act in a timely fashion I will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away,” He said this at an Obama love fest in Las Vegas, apparently unaware that the lawmaking process in America doesn’t quite work that way.
Trying to generate a false sense of urgency, Obama said over and over again,“now is the time” to act.“We’ve got to bring our legal immigration system into the 21st century.”
Later the same day, Organizing for Action blackshirt-in-chief Jim Messina, who was Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, blasted out a mass email.“Solving this problem is not only essential to a strong economy and a thriving middle class, it’s also the right thing to do,” he wrote, as Obama’s policies continue to destroy small businesses and harm working Americans.
