It is obvious that the players of the immigration dance has ran out of tune so lets hope this is the real moves to the lyric.

Jobs that don't pay well in the first place? Welfare to work for citizens should be working those jobs!Unions are after dues and they don't give a hoot who's paying them.

Ah yes the Foreign Nationals Job bill. Just what we do not need.

It’s taken 25 years to finally admit that amnesty with “enforcement” didn’t work. So how will our brain dead politicians fix our national disgrace? Why of course, they will pass another amnesty with enhanced enforcement to “solve” the problem. Our children deserve better, but votes are more important than national security for our elected officials.

No political contributions are. We have the best politicians that money can buy. Enforcement will be out of the picture in six months. Probably due to lack of money for the border patrol etc.. Hell they are not enforcing the laws on the books now!!! Why the hell would they do it in the future!!! They fool nobody. And by the ways "OBAMA DID LIE". The congressman that called Obama on his lie that illegals would not be covered on OBONGO care should receive a major apology. THEY ARE COVERED!!!

It sounds like somebody is being fooled, but it is not who you think.

What laws are not being enforced now?

Between the years 1892 and 1997 a total of 2.1 million people were deported from the US. G.W Bush deported 2 million people during his administration. That is a rate of 20,964 per month.

Obama has deported 1.4 million people in four years. This is a rate of 32,886 per month.

So there us absolutely no truth to your post.

Forget about your healthcare nonsense. That was just pulled out of thin air.

These amnesty lovers aren't fooling anyone. They have no intention of enforcing anything they pass. This is all political. It's all about the votes. It's really sad that some Republicans are stupid enough to think they will get these Hispanic votes. All these amnesty candidates will be voting Dem. if given the chance.

Actually, it was the Republicans who wanted a new visa category that would have allowed 400,000 additional guest workers. Their biggest proponent was the American Chamber of Commerce (business interests).

The Democrats and unions wanted none because having 400,000 new guest workers would have taken American jobs for minimum wages. Eventually, they agreed on a compromise of 200,000.

So I guess, if you are a blue-collar American earning a higher than minimum wage, the Democrats and Unions have your back.
