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.
But they will get to vote, so all of that can be taken care of within a year.
But are they allowed to vote? If so, the resulting Dem super-majority will quickly overturn any such restrictions.
