(REMEMBER THE RIVER RAISIN!)
The group includes Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Marco Rubio of Florida and Jeff Flake of Arizona. The Democrats are Sens. Charles E. Schumer of New York, Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Michael Bennet of Colorado.
These clowns, and the Republican Party as a whole, need a Cruz Missile. It's time for the Republican Party to go away if this actually happens.

how to offer legal status to the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants.
Where did this 11 million number come from? It had been stuck at 12 million no matter how many came it for around a decade. And now it has dropped by a million. I still believe the number is closer to 30 million than 11.

RE :”WASHINGTON Eight senators who have spent weeks trying to write a bipartisan bill to overhaul immigration laws have privately agreed on the most contentious part of the draft how to offer legal status to the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants.
According to aides familiar with the closed-door negotiations, the bill would require illegal immigrants to register with Homeland Security Department authorities, file federal income taxes for their time in America and pay a still-to-be-determined fine. They also must have a clean law enforcement record.
Once granted probationary legal status, immigrants would be allowed to work but would be barred from receiving federal public benefits, including food stamps, family cash assistance, Medicaid and unemployment insurance.
The group's current draft is largely in line with President Obama’s call to set a pathway to earned citizenship as part of a broader immigration reform package, as well as with recent efforts by prominent Republican lawmakers to resolve an issue that hurt GOP candidates in November's election.......
Still undecided is how long illegal immigrants would need to wait before they could apply for permanent resident status and eventually become citizens. The delay for a green card probably would be 10 years or longer, the aides said.”
Rubio agreed to ‘path to citizenship’ before the negotiations even started but now doesn't does not appear to be in a hurry to tell us the details of how and when. I dont see a deal that Dems will accept until he does, this looks intended to show promise.
Say they passed a bill that delayed citizenship for 10+ years, that would be in line with their ideas on entitlement reform, delaying that 10+ years.
Candy now, medicine later.

(O's sequester Apocalypse tour just proved why we need the 2nd amendment more than ever NOW!)
An aide said the bill would require illegal immigrants to register with the Department of Homeland Security, file federal income taxes, pay an as-yet undetermined fine and have a clean law enforcement record, the Chicago Tribune reported Monday.
Once they have probationary legal status, immigrants would be allowed to work but would be barred from getting federal public benefits, including food stamps, family cash assistance, Medicaid and unemployment insurance, the aide said.

(I could eat it raw, but why do that when I have a fire.)
Every “compromise” in the proposed immigration bill by the RINO’s working on this bill, e.g.:
“According to aides familiar with the closed-door negotiations, the bill would require illegal immigrants to register with Homeland Security Department authorities, file federal income taxes for their time in America and pay a still-to-be-determined fine. They also must have a clean law enforcement record.”
will be challenged in a liberal federal court as being against the human rights of these “undocumented” aliens and will be declared unconstitutional by the federal court effectively giving every illegal alien [instant] citizenship, e.g. liberal socialist voting rights (new demorat) and every concession in the proposed bill will have been for naught and the liberal socialist get EVERYTHING they have wanted from the very beginning and the RINO’s get played like a bunch of bed-wetters they are!!
Its coming, wait for it . . .

Originally, Rubio had a real tough proposal, but I wonder how much of that is no longer part of this one.

Amnesty in the US is high priority for the NWO folks. Leaving the Southern border open purposefully was designed and implemented in the 80s to dilute the demographics of American patriotism. Amnesty is the culmination of what some might call a treasonous act against the American people. It may not qualify as treason but it certainly falls under the law as aiding and abetting crime and those in DC should be held accountable. I'm not anticipating those in DC will suddenly concern themselves with the law.

Looks like Rubio is joining forces with traitor McCain in corroborating with the enemy. Figured that’s how this would go down.

(The American Revolution began when the British attempted to disarm the Colonists.)
Reward foreign criminals for breaking the law, but fine and imprison US citizens for seatbelt violations, theft, and failing to fund the DC lawyers and politicians. Is there any value to being a citizen? Ask how many citizens would like to be rewarded for breaking the law. Scratchy ropes should be the reward of any politician who rewards foreign criminals.
