It still hasn't passed the senate. It passed in committee. You should work on your reading comprehension.
Where do you see me saying it passed the Senate ?????? One of the people on the forum said about a month ago "It won't even pass the Senate". Now the same person is saying "It will die in the House". That's the reason why I made that affirmation. So try not to draw a conclusion until you don't know all the facts. Capisci ?

You should probably stop guessing about me because you're going from worse to worst. Also try not to be a hater cause you have only one life to live and it's not worthy wasting your time hating. Do positive and fun things instead. It would make you feel a lot better.

They won't have a choice. Some would pay all the fees some would prefer to go back home.

Marco Rubio says the Bill won't let them receive benefits, you don't think that will stop it right there? They want to be American's but to keep receiving Welfare.

I live in a area that has a large population of Hispanic. The other day at or local Walmart I was behind a non English speaking Hispanic women. Her cart was full. In fact it had things I can not afford to buy. When it was time to pay, out came her snap card(food stamps). When I went to my car she happen to be parked next to me. She was loading her groceries into a big new Ford SUV. You would not believe how many non English Hispanic receive wick and or food stamps. I told my husband, I wonder what the Mexican government would say if I moved there and ask for government help?
I wonder what would happen to me if I enter into Mexico illegally?

What you described above(link card,SUV) is common. Illegals receive and receive. Basically , we are left scratch our heads. I would not mind helping the poor illegals , but when one see them holding and job,3-6 little ones,wife on welfare and driving SUV(gas guzzlers) than you begin to wonder "what is going on here",especially when you see many Americans out of work.
But, than again I don't really would worry too much about this whole situation/fraud/gaming the system thing... it's a matter of time before it all comes to a screeching halt.(Eventually,as soon as ObamaCare goes into full affect) their won't be enough taxpayers to sustain this sort of abuse. People are waking up!

That is very common, you'll see them with 3 kids and ready to pop out another, than when it comes to pay, food stamps. Who is supporting them? The hard working tax payers like myself..they don't always come here to work and do something productive to the country they come here to have a bunch of kids and see advantage of every public assistance there is. I saw a Asian lady at Safeway she didn't had much groceries but she did pull out a EBT card out of here Louis Vuitton purse. How in the world can they afford bags that cost almost $2,000 or more...work for cash money, don't report their babies daddies living with them illegally and working under the table for cash money..

The idiotic Senator, Patrick Leahy, spouts off about our dysfunctional immigration policy, but at the same time he is a leader of the most dysfunctional body of government in the history of the US.

I have had/have so many family member in the arm forces... and I am proud. I remember I tried to get in yesterYear,but due to my front mouth/braces I was rejected(til they would eventually come off) i was in college by than, when they eventually came off). Having said that, I refuse to give in to Congress/this Immigration Reform Plan without a fight.
