This bill doesn't deserve to be voted on for years yet. Promises of future action aren't enough this time. Nobody in their right mind believes any of them.

The only logical progressive solution is to allow undocumented aliens to vote.

Reestablishment of our immigration system is vital to the rebuilding of our economy

That would allow people living in out-of-control nations to control ours

We will be better off retaining voting as a right of citizenship; and work to eliminate religious terrorism in our secondary political party

Many Mexicans immigrating illegally to the United States can't speak English; they literally don't understand what the American media and politicians are saying. Ironically that's why they are able to move ahead faster than lower income US citizens; they're not ideologically handicapped by our society's worthless conventional wisdom.

Nobody ever told them that you can't earn a decent living by lowing lawns and performing manual labor. While Americans sit on their ass collecting unemployment checks, Mexicans are in the back yard mowing the lawn for $50 an hour. When the American finally loses his home to foreclosure, chances are it will be that same hard working Mexican who will move his family in.

What are you are delusional or something? The reason they live better is because they receive welfare while working,the receive Fraudulent Child TaxCredit each and every freakin' year, they receive Pell grant,scholarships and now student Loans(the Dreamers), They recieve free medical care,SS and various other tax funded service(mostly with fraudulent Identification. Do you call that getting ahead? Using and abusing our tax dollars?

Another delusional Thought on your part.
Illegals work mowing lawns yes,they do. How did they purchase that equipment? Claiming children that do not exist and receiving the Fraudulent Child Tax Credit. They purchase equipment, their trucks,etc. You know very well their wife is at home collecting all federal services(tax dollar) she can get her hands on.
Talking about foreclosures? Yes, Americans are losing their home ... because we have illegals working for cheap(all the while collecting welfare). Illegals took a job that belongs to an American and services he/she never paid into.
So, I suggest with quit B.S'ng us here,for we know better.
Especially those who are taxed/fee'd to no end and live in a Sanctuary City/State.

Illegal aliens DONT want to become U.S. citizens.
Get this pass your big head people. You are fighting a losing battle.
Illegals LOVE their status. Everything for free without paying. Illegals make money under the table. They pay NO taxes, NO medical insurance, NO drivers license, NO license plates and NO auto insurance.
And get FREE housing, FREE medical, FREE food stamps, FREE school with FREE meals, FREE Social Security benefits.

WHY would they want to become U.S. citizens? DUMMY
EXAMPLE:
American monthly expenses
Rent -$1500
Medical -$500
Food -$800
Auto Ins.$150
Taxes -$1000 (property, school & income tax)

Illegals aliens
Medical - FREE
Food - FREE
Housing - FREE
Taxes - FREE
School - FREE
Auto Ins - don't need it
Drivers license - don't need it

Should I go on! Dam you Americans are pretty friggin STUPID. Keep on fighting for illegals. I hope you enjoy paying for them FOREVER!

We are fighting against them and the Gang of 8. We want our Immigration Laws Enforced. We know very few well most have no intentions of become American citizens,but just the burden of so many here,taking up Federal Aid that (for example) our elderly,veterans so desperately need.
We know they have it made without citizenship,it is their arrogance, their entitlement mentality that is burdening the average American taxpayer.... they need to be deported, go through the process towards citizenship(if that's is actually what they are after) and be self sufficient.
