I think it will be much longer. The American people don't want this.

Great. Let it die! Nothing about the illegal immigration bill is good for the country.

Let's hope. This big amnesty would be very damaging to this country, it's very divided already and the amount of poverty it would bring in would be staggering.

I hope it will be a repeat of what happened when the last amnesty was being pushed. There was such public outrage with phone calls and e-mails that it never made it through congress.

The longer it takes the better. It will give opponents enough time to expose their lies and trickery. I keep hearing people say the devil is in the detail. No truer words. If passed, the new law is as destined for failure as the last. Hopefully, as details emerge, and the true costs and consequences of amnesty are revealed, closed minds and eyes will open. If not, heaven help us.

I call BS. Obama wants it rushed and Harry will be only too glad to obey him.

I have to question Obama's motives. Does he actually want CIR to pass, or does he want to insist on provisions that are much too liberal for Republicans to ever support? That way, he will guarantee its failure. Then, he can blame Republicans, and in the process have continuing Hispanic support for Democrats.

Each party is now looking at the next major voting block.
Both are trying to grab it.

That's what it's all about..getting that Hispanic voting block "on your side".
There's nothing altruistic coming from either side..it's rabid partisan politics and who can get to them first.

Agreed. Republicans can pander until the cows come home. But, they're delusional if they believe they'll garner support from Hispanics by voting for amnesty. Ain't gonna happen. Rather than pandering for votes, they should emphasize reforming the law to benefit our country, not illegals. Changes should be made to our legal immigration process. We need immigrants who will actually be an asset, not a liability. Sadly, now that the Hispanic vote reigns supreme, politicians will give them exactly what they want. Watch, the next demand will be visas for the illiterate, unskilled family members illegals left behind, and our spineless politicians will gladly acquiesce. It makes me sick to my stomach to watch them sell our country to illegals and shamelessly grovel for votes.
