I was wondering if this will possibly speed up the immigration process for people who signed up for the i-130 forms and already in the post decision activity as of sep 28, 2009. My dad filed for his sister back in 2003. While she was suppose to go back and wait, she overstayed her welcome and have been doing so for almost 9 years now. I don't know much about the penalty, but I do know if she exist now she would get a 10 year bar. I believe this bill would allow her to file for the green card while in American. She came here on a plane and is waiting in line. She also has a son who is 21 now. He will be graduating this year with a bachelor in computer science (money from our pockets). They both speak perfect english, because they are from an english speaking country. She all has a tax id, so she pays her taxes. She receives no government help, but her son did attend public school lol. So, how would this bill affect them? Would they get their Green card right away, maybe even citizenship in one year?
Thanks.

My aunt is in that same boat. Its depressing to see her struggle so much. She just wanted to give her son to bright future and she did. She said quote "as long as her son get through she is willing to go back to her home country, if it comes to that". She overstayed her welcome while, but is in the post decision activity for i-130 since 2009. Hopefully she can get her green card here and pay a fine.

Are you one of the 30 million Americans out if work??? I know of a place where you get hire the same day you apply... Buth, you have to work long hours on your feet unloading heavy boxes from containers coming from China, you have to deal with managers constantly screaming at you to work faster, work under in an unsafe environment and don't mind if you see some of your coworkers killed and injured by heavy containers, and all this for $8 dollars an hour. Most American citizen who worked there did not show up the next day. I wonder why??? But let me know if you or someone you know wants the job.
Great!

If illegal aliens become citizens, they will in fact be subject to the welfare reform laws that were passed under Bill Clinton so stop the fear mongering that these future citizens will forever be on welfare.

They'll be subject to a life time max of 48-60 months and then get kicked off welfare like all citizens do.

So I rebuke your reply that welfare will go up as the time limits will make the number go down.

And all you post is your "PERSONAL OPINION" which ain't much!

Now quit whining and start doing your own research, that is if you know how!

Democrat Gutierrez to Introduce Amnesty Bill Tuesday

On Tuesday, December 15, open borders advocate Congressman Luis Gutierrez
(D-IL) will introduce a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that, if
passed, would grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the United
States.(Rep. Gutierrez Press Release; National Council of La Raza (NCLR)
Press Release, December 11, 2009). According to Gutierrez, his bill "will
set a liberal standard in the [immigration] debate." (Roll Call, December 7,
2009).

While the specifics of the legislation will not be clear until the text
becomes available later this week, Gutierrez previously outlined a set of
"Core Principles for a New Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill." (Rep.
Gutierrez Press Release, October 13, 2009). These "principles" indicate that
Gutierrez' bill will include three amnesty programs, including:

a.. An amnesty for illegal alien "workers." In Gutierrez' own words: "We
need a bill that says if you come here to hurt our communities, we will not
support you. But if you are here to work hard - if you are here to make a
better life for your family - you will have the opportunity to earn your
citizenship." (Gutierrez Press Release).

It's always nice to look at things in a positive,no fault manner. But, we cannot be so blind. Illegals are costing the taxpayers a pretty penny, the resources/costs to wean our the criminal aliens are not there. Remember , America is hanging by a thread economically, she is running on Trillions of Dollars debt. With that said, the logical thing to do would be for taxpayers to quit supporting them altogether through welfare,etc.This massive cost due to the influx of poor/uneducated illegal aliens will further bring down America financially. They will eventually self deport and apply to become part of our great Nation when their name is called when they go through the Legal process.

what troubles me is that everyone keeps talking about 11 million illegals that this amnesty will address.

so, what happens if more than 11 million illegals apply for the amnesty? what then?

are the idiots on capitol hill going to allow more to apply and be approved? where will they draw the line?

what happens if 50 million or 100 million apply for the amnesty?

something tells me nobody has considered the above scenario.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
