Because they didn't want all the blame.But I will repeat myself . From 2008 till 2010 the Democrats had a large majority in both Houses and could have passed any immigration bill they wanted to and chose to do nothing.
Heck they could have blown the dust off McCain old bipartisen bill and had it fly through with even a few Republican votes.
So can some one tell me why the Democrats did nothing when they where in power?
We all know what would happen with a huge amnesty that the libs are talking about now. It would reduce income, it would increase unemployment especially among the blacks in this country, it would destroy neighborhoods by these illegals moving in with ten people per two bedroom house, and it would further us becoming a bilingual country against our wishes.
Of course, that would give them great favor among the Hispanic community, but it would ruin the lives of real Americans born here. So how can they get away with this stunt, win the Hispanic vote, and make it look like the ramifications of amnesty is not their fault? Get Republicans involved.
Remember that these are the very same people that continue to lie to the American public about everything wrong today being George Bushs' fault. They blame Republicans for Commie Care even though not one Republican voted for it.
So when the disaster hits after amnesty is granted, they will try to blame the Republicans for all the problems, and the uninformed voters will buy it just like they do everything else from the Liarcrats.
