The gang of dopes claim that it will cost taxpayers 50 mllion to give legal advise to these illegals...why should a penny have to come out of the taxpaers' pockets for something that is of no benefit to them???? If illegals need advice, then they should be forced to pay for it themselves. Americans have paid far too long for these interlopers in more ways than one.

Better give it GOOD, LONG debate and figure out how, since they didn't enforce the old laws, how are they going to enforce the new laws.

(And the new regulations are WAY MORE COMPLICATED! Immigrants are going to have to HIRE A LAWYER just to get them through all the new RED TAPE)

Months to debate the amnesty bill? I thought it was so popular it would breeze right through Congress. I guess Obama lied about the popularity of the immigration bill like he lied about the popularity of gun control.

If it wasn't for the MSM running cover, Obama would have been asked to resigned after Benghazi.

Mandatory background checks are a terrible idea. They burden law-abiding citizens and don’t catch criminals. The databases they rely on are riddled with errors. We don’t even prosecute people who flunk the checks. That’s why Republicans are against imposing such checks on gun buyers.

On the other hand, if you want to catch illegal immigrants, forget everything I just said. Running everybody through a database is a terrific idea. Republicans are all for it.

How did the GOP end up in this position? The story begins a couple of years ago, when Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, introduced the Accountability Through Electronic Verification Act. Grassley explained that the bill would “require that all employers use the E-Verify program,” a “web-based tool that allows employers to verify the work eligibility of new employees,” thereby “combating the hiring of illegal aliens.” E-Verify would become “mandatory for all employers within one year.” Companies would have to “check the status of existing employees within 3 years” and “terminate the employment of those found unauthorized to work.”

since almost all politicians are lawyers, I think your question answers itself. It's not for the poor downtrodden undocumented democrats, it's for the lawyers.

Not only did he do that, he fast tracked their passports, gave them pressure cookers to "cook" with and signed them into school.
