Of course speed is important. They need to pass amnesty before Americans realize what is going on. Just like Obama care. Pass the bill then figure out what it says.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Don Young, the gruff Republican veteran who represents the entire state of Alaska, apologized Friday for referring to Hispanic migrant workers as “wetbacks” in a radio interview.

“I apologize for the insensitive term I used during an interview in Ketchikan, Alaska,” Young said in a statement after lawmakers from both political parties called on him to apologize.

“There was no malice in my heart or intent to offend; it was a poor choice of words,” Young said. http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-03-29...

They should give them papers - walking papers. When your house is infested with roaches you get rid of the roaches, you don't change the roaches name to flowers to make them seem more desirable. Leahy is just a con man looking to use the Dems. favorite strategy of rushing terrible bills through before the people can say anything. Leahy is a bum.
