This is how it works.

Outlaw booze, Volstead Act. Repealed.
Income Tax 1860. Unconstitutional.
No prayer in public schools. IN GOD WE TRUST.
An immigrant must enter this country legally, and apply for the appropiate documentation to stay pending being granted citizenship.

That is of course you are Mexican, Cuban, Chinese, Russian, Arab, British, Vietnamese, Bulgarian, Italian, South Korean, or was born in Kenya.

What I find amusing about this entire thing is how that Democrat says that 54% of the illegals run through E-Verify are not detected.
If they are not detcected then how do we know how many of them there are?
It is just another smoke screen by the Democrats to try and save their illegal supporters.
I say pass it, pass it now, enforce it and anyone that is found to be illegal through its use, deport them.
All that being said the first order of business is to secure the southern border.
