Then you either do not know the meaning of the word "amnesty" or you get your news from really bad sources.
Under the latest Senate proposal people will have to pay stiff penalties, go through background checks, pay back taxes and prove they speak English. After that based on the way the current immigration system and backlogs it could take up to twenty four years to get a green card.
You certainly could not call that amnesty. If you do please provide an example of the last time you paid a stiff fee for something, waited more than twenty years for delivery and then thought you got a free ride.
You are right Sir they are not calling it Amnesty. But, we all have seen how Obama and his Adm. like playing with words.That said ,we will see,time will tell.

Ha, I NEVER had to pay a fine for anything. Based on the way the government runs things, fraud will be rampant and also won't be detected and caught.

Who said anything about a fine? I was asking when the last time you paid any type of fee for any reason, waited more than twenty years for delivery and then concluded that you had received a free ride.
