It is all grandstanding anyway. "CIR" is dead. Amnesty is never going to pass and the pro-illegals will never allow any reform without it.
The Democrats will blame the Republicans but they know that if they could pass any reforms to the immigration laws they want as long as amnesty is not part of it. Why not start with making it easier for honest immigrants rather than allowing illegal aliens to hold true reform hostage?
I have a friend who is a naturalized citizen with an education and a good job who spent a lot of money and over a year of time to bring his wife into the country legally. She is an educated woman with a college degree from a good background and she had a job waiting. It is sad that it is so difficult for honest people yet a criminal can sneak in commit multiple crimes while here and be granted amnesty.
