"It would create a path to U.S. citizenship for the nation's estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants. They would have to have a job, learn English, commit no crimes, and take their place at the back of the line for naturalization (a process that can take as many as 10 years), behind legal immigrants."
This is how our genius leaders see to fix a "broken" immigration problem?
First of all, what planet are they living on when they say, "They would have to have a job..." Americans want that as well!!! What about focusing on producing jobs for Americans" REAL jobs where you can work one and support yourself rather than three and barely make ends meet?!!!
They are doing this for OVER 11 million people!!! The whole point is to solve the problem, but the last amnesty of 2-3 million produced more!!!! Granting amnesty of any kind is like throwing gasoline on a fire, it only increases the flames!!!!
