Here's the "final product" I would like to see:
1) An effective security fence along the entire length of the US-Mexico border, provided with adequate personnel and surveillance equipment.
2) Sufficient detention facilities to house captured illegals prior to their deportation.
3) An effective ID system for legal immigrants (yes, and "guest workers") and a system for verification of US citizenship made accessible to prospective employers.
4) Heavy punnishment for employers who knowingly hire illegals.
5) All immigrants screened for contageous disease, criminal record, membership in the ROP.
6) US citizen or employer sponsrship for all immigrants Guest workers may stay as long as they have employment.
7) Welfare payments of any kind except for (certain) emergency medical care until a US citizen will not be provided.
8) Valid ID must be possessed at all times. If issued a drivers license, such license must identify the possessor as a non-US-citizen.
9) May not vote in US elections.
10)Failure to comply with above results in deportation following one hearing and one appeal to be conducted within three months.
BTW, anyone know how much piranha run?
It is amazing they even got this. Apparently it will take something catastrophic again to get people in Congress to do what they don't want to do.
I always felt like they should separate the two things but the Republicans could deflect somewhat the politics of it (on the appealing to the Hispanic voter side) by passing a bill appropriating funds for States to spend on how best and where it is best and what is best to put up along the border. Seems to me you might be able to slip through this kind of thing fairly easily - and it would be cheaper and more effective.
Read the bill for yourself. The Senate just voted for clouter on the US House bill. All approrpriantions have to start in the US House. The funding is there contrary to the knee jerk cyncisum of the Always Angry.This bill requires them to build the fence.

The heck with that. Just send the money to the Minutemen.
I am sorry, I don't waste my time responding to Freepers who lie about other Freepers in their posting.
Bump and marked.
I only count about 70 miles of fence? How much real fence do we get?
Are they going to end up having to hire a bunch of illegals to build it at a reasonable price?
The labor unionists will want $50 an hour and 10 breaks a day, and the ghetto dwellers will end up with half the materials in their garages.
Haven't heard that term in a long time but is fits.
All Rats figures..... Gee what a surprise the Scum of the Earth Kennedy and Kerry both made the list.
"Kerry and Dodd didn't vote."
If I recall correctly, it was Dodd who added to the Senate Bill 2611, at the very last minute, the provision that requires the United States to consult with Mexico BEFORE doing anything to secure the border, including building a fence. I'm not surprised he didn't vote, but I wonder how many people who voted for this amendment, have flip flopped.

Present - 1
Not Voting - 2
"An amendment slipped into the Senate bill at the last minute by Sen. Chris Dodd mandates consultations with Mexican officials before any fence construction begins."
"Amazing how an impending election has 94 senators focusing on border security. I'd think that at least some of the senate critters up for re-election from hopelessly stupid constituencies or not up for re-election would vote no."
Someone suggested yesterday the possibility that they are all going along because behind the scenes they've bargained for passage at a later date of comprehensive amnesty.
Also, the MinuteMen are planning on building a fence with private donations on private land, they may have actually already started.
