"Despite overwhelming support by the American people for immigration reform"

This is a lie. What American supports more debt, foreigners on welfare, in schools, in hospitals, depressing wages and committing more crime like they do in their country.

Obama can't make a law. The Executive branch enforces the law not make them. If he does something stupid the democrats will pay for it. Elections are next year and Obamacare is already going to do alot of damage let Obama do a amnesty that will cost 6.3 trillion dollars, plus unemployment is already high. People will turn on him.

Check out this trial.

Could a Texas judge derail Obama's DREAM Act amnesty plans?

"On April 24, Judge Reed O’Connor concluded that the Obama administration’s policy of granting de facto amnesty to some people who entered the country illegally violates federal immigration law."

What we learned about immigration reform yesterday:

Not a single right-leaning think tank rose in defense of Heritage’s "6.3 trillion" anti-immigration study. The American Enterprise Institute, the Cato Institute, Manhattan Institute, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Kemp Foundation and other pro-free market entities are on the other side.

So most of the intellectual heft on the right is firmly on the pro-immigration side. Polling shows most Republicans are favorably disposed toward immigration reform with conditions like those set out in the Gang of Eight’s plan.

There's no overwhelming support by American people for Amnesty. Only Mexicans, some nutjob Democrats and Illegals themselves want the bill. If it passes its a really bad,bad thing for America, it's good for all Mexicans-bacause all the free stuff.

the 6.3 trillion is funny. The Heritage Foundation hasnt ever been that great at math. If you look into their calculation a little bit, you will find that they are way off.

one thing we all know and none can dispute it we cannot trust the dems on any count for enforcing laws. we have already seen they are against all enforcement as well as border security. so unless you are an illegal alien or relative this bill will hurt the country and do not good at all for citizens. if they cost one cent that is way too much.

polls are all rigged for the most part, the eway the questions are asked come out about like what i read ,ask a question like "have you stopped beating you dog" will never get the real answers when they ask straight up without no twisting or trying to be manipulative maybe them all polls would be worth reading.

Back to reality, so if what you say is true then this bill will have no problems shooting right through the House?

The truth is the Senate republicans are out voted so they bend over. In the House the republicans rule and won't bend over. The bill is bad enough without bring the cost factor into it. Yes indeed will cost, just look at California. Besides what in the bill stops illegal aliens from coming and don't say border security.

The US makes 11-20 million illegal aliens citizens but the problem still remains. The problem that allowed 11-20 million here in the first place. Those 11-20 million will also sponsor 30-40 million and people think it won't cost money?

The CBO is doing a cost study right now. It'll be out shortly, but those who amnesty won't accept any report that says illegal aliens cost money.

What it shows is that like wealthy Democrats many wealthy Republicans also want to lower wages for workers and increase profits for the rich while burdening our children and grand children with high taxes to subsidize the cheap labor.
It looks that like the Democrats many Republicans are also rich, greedy and unconcerned about the average citizen and the future of this country.
