Two GOP state senators have come put to support this bill. There is still uncertainty that this may pass the Senate believe or not after it was overwhelmingly passed by the PA House. Just shows how corrupt and out of touch this state can be.

Wasn't he sent to jail? I noticed all 7 out of 200 in the house who voted no where in Philly. I couldn't imagine a Western PA rep voting against this,.

Yeah I know my reps and senators will vote for the bill, I live in "Alabama" as one political scientist aptly called South-Central PA. And thank goodness too, the Mexicans are starting to invade the York-Gettysburg area and it's getting annoying having to go to Walmart and 1/3 of the customers there are Mexican and of course, the whole lot of them line up at the MoneyGram desk

That's strange. The most Hispanic neighborhood in Pittsburgh is less than 10% Hispanic and they even stopped their Spanish mass (I guess that shows a decline in their presence?). I can go an 8 hour shift at the store I work at and not see a single Mexican. The unions also are strong here and it would be all over the news here if a company was using all illegals probably.

This bill is so weak, it's a joke.
