You are confused. The Republicans cave/caved in,those who have lost their Conservative thinking. They are the Democrats Lite.
Perhaps we can agree that neither represents the people. I would also argue we should vote for neither.

I don't know what you mean by conservative thinking. If you judge liberal thinking based upon what the democrats do, then the definition is very different than what I would accept.

I would argue that the republicans are getting what they ask for and the democrats do nothing to stop them.

Americans sent politicians to Congress to work out the details of Immigration Reform. So the proposals are not your cup of tea... well go cry to your elected official.

So will the GOPasaurs turn on McCain & Rubio for supporting this?

Let's hope so!

I look forward to the racist Republicans tearing each other apart over this issue while Obama & the Dems sit back an look like the sane adults again.

Should be entertaining!!

20+ million citizens out of work and they want to cater to illegal turds that couldn't make it in their homeland so they came and stole to make it here. Don't give me the talking point crap. Where I work they have knowingly hire illegals and they brag and show their checks that they pay 0 taxes.

those who pushed shamnesty before added things only to never follow through as they will now. those who side with illegal aliens never have followed through on all the enforcement that they all agreed to.

it is a felony to help illegal aliens stay in the country. yet who has been locked up with that one little law? it has been over looked all the time. it is a scam from the gate and none who support in in office can be trusted.

So why do you work for a company that hires illegals? That is against the law, and your company is intentionally breaking the law. If the government would simply enforce the law, so that companies like yours could not hire the illegals, they would not come here in the first place.

Absolutely. The issue is what to do with those who we have given tacit permission to remain here for 25 years and the children who were born here
and know this country as their own. Do we send in the National Guard, the Navy Seals, or what? Extricating 12 million people
is a challenge that is destined for failure. In my view we have
to give them the opportunity to stay--there is no other practical
way to resolve this issue. Maybe this time something positive
will be the result.

I am forced to agree, no way you could remove those that are here. But, there is a way to prevent others. Simple and cost efficient too.

Does no matter Obama does not intend to enforce any requirements anyway.

"Day in and day out, as the immigration debate boils, the halls of Congress are haunted by the specter of Senate Bill 1200, the failed amnesty legislation of 1986.

Proposals for Immigration Reform (May 16, 2006)

President Ronald Reagan signed that bill into law with great fanfare amid promises that it would grant legal status to illegal immigrants, crack down on employers who hired illegal workers and secure the border once and for all. Instead, fraudulent applications tainted the process, many employers continued their illicit hiring practices, and illegal immigration surged."

Any amnesty has to pass both the senate and the house. Looks like the house will be standing up for Americans and the senate for illegal aliens.

I just think the McCains in this goofy problem, really think Repub's are going to gain from this choice. HA HA what?????No Mexican or south American or Asian illegal will vote Republican, and they actually think these illegals will learn English ha ha ha....They will NOT QUALIFY. Only very small %'s will come forward, pay fines, learn English. Our so called leaders simply do not realize the illegals don't want to become Americans. They want reconquista... silly south Americans. You will not assimilate, and have zero appreciation for this Country and legal America. I've been insulted time and time again by these people and they won't change for anybody. Never. They want to change this Country, not become American....Stupid McCain. He and Durbin, dumb...
