Please see the Reid bill, ref link The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR): Summary of the Reid-Schumer-Menendez Amnesty Proposal (http://www.fairus.org/site/News2/1013273561?page=NewsArticle&id=22889&security=1601 &news_iv_ctrl=1761 - broken link)


V. AMNESTY OR “BROAD-BASED REGISTRATION PROGRAM”
  • Grants amnesty in two phases.

    Phase 1: “Lawful Prospective Immigrant” status
    • Requires illegal aliens to register, get fingerprinted, be screened
    • Allows these individuals to work in the U.S. and travel outside the U.S.
    • Allows aliens to bring in spouses and minor children from outside the U.S. (pp. 23-24)
    To be eligible, an alien must:
    • Complete an application, which includes biometric information;
    • Pass security and criminal history checks;
    • Pay all applicable fees, civil penalties and taxes; and
    • Have been continuously present in the U.S. since the date of enactment (p. 25) )
    Unlike S.1639, there is no requirement that applicants be gainfully employed.

    Aliens will be ineligible if they:
    • Have been convicted of any felony offense under federal or state law;
    • Have been convicted of three or more misdemeanors;
    • Are currently legal; or
    • Have entered illegally since the date of introduction (p. 25) )
    Phase 2: Lawful Permanent Resident statusLPIs are eligible to become LPRs after 8 years. To become an LPR, an LPI must “meet criteria related to”:
    • Basic citizenship skills;
    • English language skills;
    • Continuous residence in the U.S.;
    • Updated criminal history and security checks;
    • Payment of “all” federal income taxes, fees, and civil penalties; and
    • Registration for selective service (p. 25) )
    Again, there appears to be no employment requirement.
    AgJOBS is included (no mention of which version).
    The DREAM Act is included (no mention of which version).
Too much? you think people will want to keep paying the welfair for them? wheres the provision that says if you have kids you need to support them? generations of 3rd world leeches.

And that is really the essence of the matter right there. Voters. The Republicans blew their chances big time when the republican hard liners refused to get on board Bush's immigration reform plan back in 2005. If they had, they would have had the entire Hispanic vote in their pocket forever. Now, the republicans will fight any immigration reform plan to the death because they know that if a bill gets passed under a democratic administration then the Hispanic vote will forever be in the pocket of the Democratic party. One other point, the Hispanic voting block is only going to get bigger over the years, thereby minimizing the power of those who oppose them.

Dems can really push for Amnesty and get 10-20 million potential voters.
Or just wait 10-20 years until Hispanic voting bloc is large enough to..
Swing the vote.2050 Hispanics are to be the majority if current trends..
Continue.

The Republican Party is not the party of losers, loafers and the lazy all looking for a handout so they would have still voted Democrat.

Disregarding your broad, meaningless attack on one faction of the political spectrum, what you say is absolutely not true. Hispanics are generally conservative in political nature. Being grounded in very high family values, Catholic and very religious, anti abortion and very thrifty by nature. All attributes that hard line republicans would like to see more of from their own constituants.

You make some very telling remarks about Hispanics. You are reiterating exactly what I have been telling my fellow Americans all along. More and more Americans are going to wise up to what is going on and it won't be a positive for Hispanics.
