The American Chamber of Commerce, and their lapdogs, the Republicans will not let this bill die. It is too important to their bottom line.

What's best for the bottom line is to get rid of Corporatalism and return to Capitalism, by allowing Americans to earn a living wage and by getting rid of the under-class that corporations have exchanged for American worker's striving to live the so-called American Dream. Juan you and you compadre's stole the life we enjoyed. My friends have all retrained for different professions as a result of Corporatalism , and if you can live on the manuscript given us 30 year's ago, it's only because you changed your trade... Mexicans want dreams....dreams of what? Working for minimum wage 80 hours a week in exchange for a crappy apt. and a low-rider? This Country has too learn that giving you guys all the crap job's ruined the economy for the Middle class. There is no Government in the World that bleeds the middle class dry like this one. And the new Global economy... Why Greece want's out. Our Political leaders lost all it's respect for American citizens when lobbyist's bought them off years ago. The Obama administration is no different from any other administrations, except he promised free stuff to the under-class. Education and pumping up the middle class will help, but not competing with illegals for job's. In the meantime, give up and move on....

Of course the immigration amnesty bill will not pass the House, it is a bad bill. We are not going to stand for amnesty, not ever. Go home, come back legally. They can't come back legally, most are criminals, all broke the law coming across the border illegally. If they were going to get anything it will be after the 2016 election, and then only if the Democrats do much better then they appear to be doing.
