It’s almost dead. Let’s hope it keeps dying.
The immigration “reform” bill which basically opens the door to a flood of illegal immigration is hitting some roadblocks. If it passes, US taxpayers will essentially be footing the healthcare and school bill for anybody that can get into the US by any means, and strip the ability to enforce US sovereignty.
Most of the details I care not one whit about. Before any solutions is presented, though, border control must be addresses. Then we can decide what to do with those already here. Legalizing all those here without an effective border control simply encourages more to come illegally.
Look at one of the goofier amendments defeated on –
The Senate voted 51-46 to reject a proposal by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, to bar criminals – including those ordered by judges to be deported – from gaining legal status. Democrats siphoned support from Cornyn’s proposal by winning adoption, 66-32, of a rival version that would bar a more limited set of criminals, including certain gang members and sex offenders, from gaining legalization.
How many criminal illegal immigrants (by definition, criminal already since they’re already here illegally) do we want to gain legal status? I’m pretty sure the answer for me is -zero-.
