I missed #4 and #5, and didn't know the answers on the bonus questions, but guessed "false."
I was surprised, actually, because I had been under the impression that the Reagan Amnesty granted green cards and permanent residence directly to Illegals.
I was unaware that like the proposal of President Bush, the Reagan Amnesty had an intermediate "temporary" stage before legalized Illegals would be eligible for permanent status.
The duration of the "temporary" status of the Reagan Amnesty was 18 months, while for the Bush Amnesty, it will be at least three years, possibly more, before President Bush's legalized Illegals would be able to apply for green cards.
