The Senate hyped this amnesty, padded it with special interests for big business and illegal aliens and their supporters.

This 1,200 page, 24 pound amnesty bill is anti American worker piece of crap. With unlimited DUIs for illegal aliens.

"And, even if an alien has been convicted of three or more DUIs, the bill allows the secretary of homeland security to waive the 2-DUI limit for illegal aliens seeking legalization if she believes it is “for humanitarian purposes, to ensure family unity, or if such a waiver is otherwise in the public interest.”

The bill brands an alien as a “habitual drunk driver” only after the alien has incurred three DUIs.

However, each of these three DUI convictions must be for an offense that happened on a separate date. Thus, theoretically, if an illegal alien were caught driving under the influence at 12:01 a.m one day, then went home and slept it off, then went out and got caught for driving under the influence again at 11:59 p.m. on the same day, he would only be counted as having one DUI under the Senate immigration bill."

The Senate knew it wouldn't pass in the House so they voted for it to make themselves look good to Dems and minority's...illegals.. Nothing New here just more foolishness from both Party's.

If D.C. was serious about illegal immigration, they would have enforced standing laws, protected our Border. We've all been taken for a ride... But it needs repeating on a regular basis, Hopefully someone in Washington might tune in to the American people on occasion.
