They said on the news that the Senate bill might come up for a vote in the fall and will probably be shot down in the House. This, like gun control is just more diversion.

Can I get a pass next time I BREAK THE LAW, and then get rewarded instead of punished. No, probably not, I am a bad discriminating white male in the People's Republic of Illinois in the United States of Santa Domingo.

What is all this I can finally see my parents stuff. This great country is a country of LAWS. If you broke them, ignorance is no excuse, right? Do we give our own LEGAL citizens a pass and reward them when they break a law? NO! Did we pardon those who were convicted felons because we had laws on the books pertaining to prohibition? NO! They remained felons all their lives. Yet because this is a large potential voting block, we want to ignore the fact that they BROKE THE LAW. I feel terrible for families separated, but if you came here illegally YOU BROKE THE LAW. We do not bend the law because of sad stories or lots of tragic personal circumstances. That is not what made this nation what it became. We again are a nation of laws, if you broke the law, you should face the consequences, not be rewarded because there are several million lawbreakers.

please do not pass the bill and start enforcing all laws without excuse on this issue. put those who help illegal aliens in prison as to the law,give those illegal alien who have been deported the max prison sentence of 10 to 20.

doing so will have nothing but great benefits to the citizens of the USA.
reform is nothing more than rewards for crimes.shamnesty is an all out attack on the people.

opening up jobs clearing illegal aliens off the welfare following the law as written will be a win win thing for all who matter,the citizens.

Most of the people that apply, simply will not qualify... Proficient English, no criminal background, pay back tax and go to the end of the line... Most here have posted, are not proficient in English, many have criminal backgrounds, most will not, qualify. Don't get to excited because there is lot's of infighting and most legal Mexicans and south Americans don't approve of reform. Suicide to our economy would be the biggest deficit of this, and OBAMA is NOT the final say even though most MexicANS believe he can sign a piece of paper and make millions of low wage earners American. Not !!!! Don't be fooled. Thank God a few of the pack of 8 aren't completely stupid.

Schumer says that the final pieces are in place now that the Chamber of Commerce and the Unions have a tentative agreement. And here I thought he represented the people. My mistake. He will feel different after the American people start letting their feelings be known. It's not going to be nearly as easy to railroad this thing through as they're making it out to be.

Chuck-u-Schumer is an "out for himself" cpos. How would you feel if you were #2 to Harry Reid? Rubio is the best chance in that group.
