It sounds like he does because he wouldn't let it go to the vote if he didn't. I hope I'm wrong about this and it fails on Saturday when he brings it up.

He might or he is going through the motions to appease the illegal crowd.
There is a reason that he is using the lame duck session. He is banking that those fired have nothing to risk and those who remain have a couple of years for folks to forget.

I hope not, unless there are some financial shenanigans going on then no he doesn't.

I am 99.9% sure he doesn't have the votes. He just wants to be able to show the Hispanic community that he tried and look like the good guy to them along with the rest of the Democrats to retain that voting bloc.

That may be a good strategy...we'll see.

I hope to hell this stupid bill doesn't pass. It's a shame when an American does not have faith in his country.

Considering the pro illegals (and the illegals that stand to benefit from this Act as well) are gaming the system once again by calling/emailing/faxing the "on the fence" Senators claiming (can we say LYING?) to be constituents, who knows.

Promises Promises Promises, To the unions and to the groups of people that support illegals and the illegals themselves by playing on their emotions

Why, for God's sake, would you support anything that
comes out of UNION Harry's pie hole

Yes, it’s sickening. They’re even using NumbersUSA to send faxes. One would be hard-pressed to find a more obnoxious group of whiny ingrates. Unfortunately, if enough palms are greased in the Senate, this garbage could pass, and we will have an illegal alien tsunami.

I agree with Lariat -it's a shame when an American is starting to lose faith in their country. IF this passes tomorrow, we can surely say that Democrats do not represent America. They only care about the illegal vote and how illegals are treated in this country. They do not care if Americans are upset or mad, and only care that illegals can receive citizenship while telling legal immigrants: You did things the right way, therefore we cannot reward you with anything.
