If it's weak on enforcement what good is it.
If an ILLEGAL immigrant/alien or "undocumented" immigrant committed ANY crimeS prior to their application for citizenship they should be denied pure and simple.
How can an American convicted of crime get a criminal record that will stick with them the rest of their life and yet these ILLEGALs will have their CRIMINAL past foregiven. How is that fair to the American Citizen who did his time yet still has that criminal record following them the rest of their life.
In many cases in you can get FEDERAL prison time for IDENTITY THEFT. So how can an ILLEGAL immigrant who should've 3-5 years in a federal prison get no time and record for their CRIMES.
It's reverse discrimination

"The Corker Amendment ostensibly addresses measures to beef up border security. It, however, is also likely to be the last amendment considered on the immigration bill. As such, it has become a 1,000+ page amendment to supplant the current proposal and provide multiple new provisions. It has become the vehicle for ObamaCare 2.0.
Buried within the text of the Amendment is a seemingly innocuous provision:
(f) APPLICABILITY OF CERTAIN GROUNDS OF INADMISSIBILITY.—In determining an alien’s inadmissibility under this section, section 212(a)(9)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(9)(B)) shall not apply.
What does that mean?
Current law states that those applying for green cards are ineligible if they are either "illegally present" at any point or overstay the terms of their work visa. Such an immigrant, in current law, would have to return to their home country and restart the immigration process. The Corker Amendment wipes away that enforcement mechanism.
In the current draft of the Corker Amendment, any worker in the country on a legal work visa for 10 years can get a green card, even if they overstay their visa. The Corker Amendment allows immigrants to break the law in the future and still be eligible for citizenship. It absolves prospective behavior, not simply past mistakes."
