Senate Immigration Bill Passes, It's Not A Bananna
It sure isn't that, but it is a form of amnesty regardless of what McCain says. It allows illegals here longer then 5 years to go on probation for 11 years with the end result of gaining citizenship. For those that have been here illegally for more then 2 years but less then 5 they get to join the guest worker program. The bill has some token provisions for the illegals to meet before gaining citizenship. The bill sucks in my opinion. I'm hoping that the House will do something about this lackluster bill when it hits the floor. I'm not against immigration, I believe it's one of the best parts of America's history, but at the same time America is a republic built on laws. Any non-citizen breaking the laws of this country should be turned away and not allowed to get an easy pass to citizenship. They also do not deserve welfare or other public assistance (exception being in life or death instances).
