“that the citizenship that had been bestowed upon millions of illegals might be suddenly rescinded...”

That’s not what this is offering, FWIW. Citizenship would still take the 5 years after the green card, even if this were to pass tomorrow. This isn’t even an offer of a green card - it’s a provisional status. Registration with the government, payment of back taxes and a fine of an unspecified amount. Plus - getting to the back of the line wrt green card applications.

There are enough things wrong with the proposed bill as is. No enforcement mechanism is the biggest.

Actually, you are correct.

I should rephrase.

Krauthammer noted--correctly, I believe--that the amnesty that is being offered would not likely be rescinded.

Nor would citizenship be, if acquired later...
