Bill Text - 111th Congress (2009-2010) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)::

It looks like they think if they offer pay as you go that it will buy them legal residency.
Which is just another weak attempt to start ANOTHER amnesty.

Please remember that we only have 3 million jobs available we need 15 million , this is from the labor department.
Many of the local city colleges have waiting lists already.People do not want this, these people need to go away.

So if illegals are "defacto Americans" according to the Rep from Co, what does that make LEGAL immigrants? Chopped liver I guess, especially if you happen to be unemployed.

This despicable sentiment is an affront to every LEGAL immigrant, and makes a mockery of our laws. Why would anyone bother to play by the rules, if the lawbreakers are rewarded, while the law-abiding are thrown under the bus? Unless 'We the People' stand up and fight, this country will soon crash and burn.

You should call your senator and demand that your immigration fees be paid back in full if they vote for this garbage legislation

I agree with this sentiment. I also think anyone that has been in an accident involving an illegal or been the victim of identity theft or been damaged in any way due to the lack of infocement of our laws should sue. Maybe if they had to explain this to their constituants they would see how much citizens are suffering from this invasion. And there would be an actual paper trail showing the associated costs.

There should be conditions like, a time limit, and if it's not paid back or if they stop paying( which you can bet 50% will not pay), then they lose everything and the IRS will be knocking on their door.

The Dems knew it would get thru the House. They also realize they can't push it thru the Senate.

It is only backdoor immigration so it make them look good to "try" it and say those nasty Republicans wouldn't pass it.

In any case, only if the illegal serves in the Army (etc.) Enough US citizens can't get into colleges with the costs.
