I thought we already had those rules. Isnt that what your passport is? Is this another change that says one thing and does another? I really feel sorry for lawyers. No wonder they specialize now, just like doctors. Theres so much to know about red tape and its impossible to know it all. Its called confusion.

Well first of all, this shouldn't be a surprise. It's been in the works for quite some time and the date advanced at least once that I can remember.

As to illegal alien borders jumpers, they'll just keep sneaking in due to our wide-open borders.

Do you need gov.-approved I.D. to enter the USA illegally? When the USA turns to crap I hope I don't have to show I.D. to get out.

IMO, this war on illegal immigration will take all sorts of ideas working in tandem to resolve the problem.

rather than sit in constant debate about what to do, I think it is good that stuff is being implemented.

I for one am the first to admit I don't know all the answers. as I see it, get things going, and then, later, we can finetune the process.

bottomline, get these illegals aliens out of our country before they bankrupt us.
