No one is talking about the House republicans. They won't bend over like the Senate republicans have.

Giving illegal aliens amnesty does not have a up side for them as they found out giving illegal aliens amnesty in 1986. Nothing has change except now there are more illegals here.

There are plenty of Americans who are against amnesty the republicans should try and win them over.

" 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!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

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."

With this pen....don't hold your breath... Reagan said it was the worst mistake of his Presidency... And as you can see. It indeed was. Obama doesn't want illegal Mexicans he want's Chinese Harvard Grads to be allowed to stay after we've educated them. But he has to take all the bad too. But it will not happen. I predict he won't use Executive order on this. Too many blacks out of work to allow millions of low wage earner's to stay.

If we can't give them amnesty, the least we can do is give them obamacare and Social Security.

Dems have lied about SECURING THE BORDER before so this time its gotta be done first. Actually I enjoy watching those illegals sneak around.

Democrats don't want the border secured. They want a N. American Union/UN agenda 21 and they can't get it with closed borders.

I always knew the NY Times was a pro illegal alien, liberal rag. I thought the WSJ was different. I thought wrong. This was one of the most slanted, one sided, agenda driven articles I have ever read. I guess the slave owners will do anything to keep their slaves.
