"Earning citizenship will take more than a decade, cost thousands of dollars, and require applicants - half of whom live in poverty and many of whom don't speak English - to comply with a daunting list of regulations."

I say just deport them. BTW, amnesty won't pass.

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnestybill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and
into the sunshine of America"

"IMMIGRATION: Path to citizenship won't be easy"

If it isn't easy, most won't bother...and we'll still have 10 million illegal aliens...with an invitation for more to come.

We need and accountant to tab. all the damn bills and send all expenses to Mexihell. Why are we the tax-payers in this Country given no say so in this mess? We're stuck with paying for this chit. I've heard commercials all weekend long from Number's USA reminding everyone of the millions of Americans that have no job's. None of this makes any sense. And as it continues to be debated and scrutinized, hopefully the so-called gang of hate, will begin to pay attention to America. But it's doubtful.

The pathway to citizenship is already long and can be expensive. That is the excuse illegal aliens use to justify coming here illegally and using stolen and/or fraudulent I.D. to scam the American tax payer in the first place. The difference with amnesty is now known and admitted criminals will now qualify for citizenship ahead of honest immigrants. In addition in order to pass amnesty those that want to exploited all workers will be allowed to bring in more legal workers to compete for jobs with millions of unemployed or under employed Americans that are suffering from 5 years of recession. Not only will unskilled American workers continue to suffer but now millions more skilled American workers will see their quality of life lowered along with their wages.

Illegal immigrant play an important role in sustainability of the economy ... Just that because they are illegal makes them vulnerable to exploitation / crimes not to mention the poverty they are forced to live in. Many of people up in arms at moment are themselves 2nd or 3rd generation immigrant. Immigration reforms needs to happen whether anyone likes it or not and I think its in good for America ... The land of freedom and rights... Not all public opinion are driven by sane logic.

This whole bill is just like the healthcare bill. Big rush for what? Its another example of our government thinking it can fix something. Our government can't fix or run anything. If they keep putting bills on the American people that the people despise, they run the risk of losing all credibility and that could be dangerous.

Amnesty will only lead to more unemployment for americans as employers will continue to lower wages. I say let these people return to their own nations and help to rebuild them. If amnesty is granted there will be conflict down the road because our social programs will not be sufficient for us and them. They will never respect us nor our laws if we give citizenship out like candy. Write your senators and congresspersons today and let them know how you feel.

Why do you say healthcare reform was rushed? Teddy Roosevelt first proposed it because he was embarrassed that we were the only developed country without healthcare and then it took 100 years until the law was passed. Some would argue that it was quite slow.

The same with immigration reform. This has been in discussion for many years.

Or the next President of this Country will enforce the immigration laws and begin to protect legal American citizens, that are fed up with you're lot. And deport deport deport.... Today even if some kind of reform is passed, Rubio and McCain claimed, millions must be deported as it's been unfair to all that have played by the rules and applied legally. Don't hold your breath.
