Again and for the last time, deportation of 11 million people is not going to happen. It is silly to hang onto this idea because it is not going to happen. If they decide to stay, they do NOT have to be declared citizens or allowed to vote if the bill does not grant these priviledges. There are plenty of non citizen aliens in the USA and most other advanced countries in the world. The mere fact that they choose to live in a foreign country does not give them citizenship or the right to vote, or receive welfare payments period. Cruz’s suggestion that a path to citizenship be stripped from immigration reform is sensible and doable.
