Skip to comments.Congress Open to Passing Bill on Immigration (Citizenship for 20 million illegals!)
Posted on 12/04/2006 6:58:29 AM PST by kellynla
Congress will approve an immigration bill that will grant citizenship rights to most of the 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. after Democrats take control next month, predict both sides on Capitol Hill. While Republicans have been largely splintered on the issue of immigration reform, Democrats have been fairly unified behind the principle that the illegals currently in the country should get citizenship rights without having to first leave the country.

The gain in Democrat voters will not be that great; you KNOW the illegals are already voting illegally and have been for years for the Democrats. It's just a matter of legalizing the illegal votes.
I'm going to write my governor Haley Barbour to see if there is anyway MS would consider suceeding.
You got it. The Dems wanted total Citizenship and VOTING rights for all illegals.
So, that would make Romney's landscapers legal so he could run?
Well .. the people voted
it's all part of the lesson we are to learn
This is unbelieveable.
Sounds like a good idea to this Texan...I predict that within my Grandchildrens lives this sort of ideas may be more than just idle talk. Our country is terribly divided and may in fact not be able to put back together again in it's present form of government.
The message has been sent.
Illegals given citizenship will have dual citizenship with their homeland. Whose best interests will they vote for? The US or Mexico? I think we know that answer.
Immigration "Reform," Here We Come
The Washington Times writes that the one significant piece of legislation likely to get through the new Congress in short order is the Democrats' proposal for citizenship for the millions of illegal aliens now in the U.S.:

Some Republicans remain hopeful that they might be able to team up with newly-elected "conservative" Democrats in the House to block the worse features of any bill the Democratic leadership will endorse. Personally, though, I won't believe in the existence of conservative Democrats post-election day until I see it. In any event, it appears that the border fence that was approved earlier this year is a certain casualty of the Democrats' return to power.
I never quite understood why the immigration issue hurt the Republicans as badly as it did, when it was the Democrats who were just about unanimously on the more controversial side of the issue. We'll find out now, I guess, what the political fallout will be when the Democrats have to actually take responsibility for an immigration policy.
But, will the compasionate conservative in the whitehouse
veto the bill?
Im guessing he will support the bill.
Hillary muchacha in 08. If there is still a country in 08.
God help us.
President Bush will be the biggest cheerleader out there for this.
Not really .. I knew what the Dems would do if they regained control
But I was called a troll or an OBL
This will make one Republican very happy,what's his name again.............. oh yeah George Bush !!!
GW will be so excited that he will make a special trip to the Congress to sign it before the ink dries.
