demanding greater rights for immigrants

Whats wrong with this sentence? First it is ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION as the issue not immigration. Second, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS have no rights so you cannot add to them!

""What we have here has become a symbol for the right wing in American politics," countered Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. He said if the proposal passed, "our relationship with Mexico would come down to a barrier between our two countries."

Yes, that would be the point.

No Amnesty for politicians who vote for amnesty.

King said Rove told lawmakers Bush is sincere about enforcement. But, he added, "The president doesn't want to enforce immigration law because he's afraid he'll inconvenience someone who wants to come into the country for a better life."

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Nothing in there about immigration...guess Pres. Bush is good to go

My plan..........

Here's a plan even the Democrats will love.......... Millions of people are trying to get into this country.

Let's make some big bucks on that fact.

First....set a number of legal immigrants each year...say 1,2 or 3 million.

Second....run a lottery that's open to the whole world.....criminals not eligible......

Each chance will cost $1000 and the drawing will occur every 3 months.

Potential immigrants can submit as many chances as they want....so the richer people with education and higher skills have an advantage.

I'd be conservative if I said the government would make several $billions each year.....

money that could be invested in tighter border security, more guards or fences.

This would work if illegal entry was punishable in every instance with a severe fine and or instant deportation.

Children born to illegals while on American soil would not become instant citizens...

This plan would be much fairer than allowing a disproportionate number of Mexicans to cross the border.

It would take some backbone but it would send a clear message to the entire world that a life in America is a privilege.

The alternative will mean civil war.

When the economy cycles into the next recession, Mexicans and Anglos will be literally fighting hand to hand for the few available jobs!

The day they get amnesty I want a call from the Courthouse in Spokane to setup a date so I can go and take the oath and get my citizenship...

Amnesty is a load of crap, why do they get to jump right in with both feet, it's an insult to all of use who have played the INS/DHS hoop jumping game.

"...370 miles of triple-layered fencing along the Mexican border"

And I heard there's 500 miles of additional vehicle barriers approved by the Senate as well.

This is a good start.

Let's get control of the borders and then decide how to handle those who are already here.

I have no problem with productive and contributing people being given a chance at citizenship when all is said and done.

...370 miles of triple-layered fencing

Tritple-layered fencing is a good idea, but why only 370 miles?

How high will the fence be? How much extra would it cost to make the middle fence electrical?

If Martinez (RINO-Florida) voted for this I will not support him if he runs for re-election. I wouldn't have anyway, of course, because of his NIMBY position on Gulf drilling.

Vaya con Dios, Mel!

Sorry, the rhetoric won't play in Peoria anymore, Durbin...not since the criminal invaders have been prancing in the streets in our faces. In fact, looks like most of the country is becoming "right wing" on this issue.

Sensenbrenner and the patriotic Republican Congressmen should call Pelosi and make a deal to impeach Bush for dereliction of duty. You know she'll jump at the chance and between them they could really make some waves. Even if they couldn't pull it off it would probably sidetrack and maybe even cripple the amnesty bill and send a loud and clear message that not even Sr. Arbusto would fail to understand.

It's amazing to hear what these nitwits are saying. They're supposed to be representing US, not Mexico. They must be getting some bit $$$ from the open borders/slave labor advocates to turn their backs on the existing laws.

Sensenbrenner speaks for the majority of America. Lawbreakers should not be rewarded with anything, least of all a chance at citizenship.

President Bush has failed us miserably, and has encouraged the next 10 million to come by advocating amnesty (no matter what he calls it).

No more votes for open borders politicians, no matter which party they claim to represent!
