Washington - March 13 --U.S. lawmakers say a comprehensive immigration reform plan that includes a guest worker program is almost ready to be introduced. The plan, which is being prepared by Sens. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and John McCain, R-Ariz., with Reps. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., is aimed at passing comparable bills in both houses of Congress. The plan includes a guest-worker program and a program allowing some 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States to earn citizenship

Immigration is my single issue.

I voted a straight R ticket this election.

But if 20 R's and the President back this travesty, I WILL sit home next time to teach the GOP a lesson. Whether you like it or not.

Bush told the Guatemalans the bill could be fast tracked for passage by August.

Think it will happen?

No, they didn't.
The "moderates" and "independents" simply felt that if Congress was going to behave and govern like Democrats, they might well have Democrat majorities.

" . . . . to earn citizenship."
Why should we assume that any significant number of those 12 million alien invaders desire U. S. citizenship? They're doing just fine without it; bank accounts, credit cards, SS accounts, home mortgage loans, in-state U.S. citizen college tuition rates, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

This is smoke mirrors and b.s. and anyone not understanding that is just plain stupid.
Round the illegals up and deport them ALL. Put up a wall and put the military on the border to protect our country.

I remember when Mexicans lived in mexico, oh wait they still do, the border has been moved north and mexico now extends into what used to be the USA.

Mexicans now work at jobs actual American citizens used to work, wow remember the good ole days ??

And now the illegals have friends in high places like the aclu the dems and......never mind.

" . . . . to earn citizenship."

Citizenship? That's becoming a serious drawback these days, maybe they should rethink that a bit.

There is NO DETERENT! It will never end ,its a free for all
The libs want to increase thier voting base and will use thier wealth redistribution plan and free college education (now in california but coming to a state near you)to attract more and more illegals, the Rebulicans want cheap labor. When are we going to wake up? close the border, put the national guard there, we have a right to protect or country!

I can't wait until the South Lawn signing ceremony with Bush stammering away in bad Spanish and bad English about his usual "illegals-are-heroes blather", with fellow immigration leftists Ted Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi at his side.

Just like the oil-for-food program, any deal where illegals get to become US citizens should include a provision that Americans can buy Mexico ie an illegals-for-investment arrangement, so to speak.

If they can work in the US, there's no reason why we can't buy up all their prime coastal real estate. All 5,000 miles of it.

That's just amnesty for the first 20 million, RodgerD. Since the borders are to be left open, the NEXT 20 million should cross the Rio Grande in ten years or less.

Plus the "temporary" workers who will never leave, plus all the relatives the amnestied-illegals will bring later as legal immigrants.

It was estimated that last year's Bush-Kennedy amnesty bill, had it passed, would have brought in as many as 80 million new aliens. This bill is likely to be worse.

Wouldn't it be nice if Bush fast tracked enforcing our current borders and immigration laws?

As soon as Bush signs this, the Republicans will be heading for another 40 years in the wilderness.

Bush will be "alienating" the base Republican voters and importing 20 million Dem voters, and he can't wait to do it!

How stupid can a man and a political party be?

Are you suggesting that conservatives staying home cost us the election? If so I would hope youd have numbers to support that claim because I have never seen any.

More likely 20 million Mexicans, all but a few to be Dem voters.

Bush is the Dem's best friend and Repub's worst enemy.

The Republicans got what the dumb$hits had coming to them .

Five years with feet up brains in neutral when it came to fighting the war on the home-front, refusing to admit to themselves that they have several active fifth columns in this country not the least of which is the democrat party & the dinosaur media and acting accordingly .

Spending money like a drunken sailor in a whorehouse on the 1st night of shore leave not giving a $hit about the Constitution.

As evidence by McCain-Fiengold rape of the 1st amendment to having children getting forced to "undergo" psychological evaluation by Dept of Education approved shrinks why the hell would I want to vote for a Republican for I'd rather burn my ballot in protest. So enough of the pity party whining!!!

The GOP needs to get its act together & do some very real & serious soul searching about what it truly believes in instead of trying to be socialist lite except when they are trying to out socialist the rats.

Not a chance. No politician will risk alienating any segment of the population this close to election.

It could be worse.. instead of hardworking,family oriented mexicans who could assimilate, we could be inundated with Muslims who want to impose Sharia, kinda like they're doing now in England and France

They all want a north America confederation. One big market and one labor base.
Compete better with the euros and chineese.
