Imaginary line? Really? Apparently, Mexico doesn't think their borders are imaginary lines as they enforce their immigration laws. Breaking laws to supposedly improve your life no matter how it negatively impacts our own citizens is an admirable thing? ID theft, tax evasion and other crimes are insignificant as long as one has a better life?

Why are you ignoring the underlying issue that CBO analyses are wrong 100% of the time? There's no need to acknowledge that the bill will be beneficial when the analysis itself is not trustworthy.

Can you rebut this?

Continue being obtuse. Its fun to watch.

The imaginary line that is recognized by international law and every civilized Nation on the planet?
The excuse I do it to improve the life of my family is old and tired. It is the excuse I am sure every thief uses to explain their crimes. Yes they are criminals.

That is what was said in the 80's bill besides saying it would solve the illegal immigration problem. Bet they are rushing for the border as we speak hearing free citizenship for sale ;one vote is the cost.

The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Pelosi, Obama and Reid all said, regarding Obamacare, that we could keep our insurance, that it would be good for the economy by reducing the deficit, that premiums would not rise, that seniors' Medicare would be safe, but none of those--and I've only named a few--are true. What was true was that it had to be passed to see what was in it, and it is being seen that Medicare Part A and B are being cut by over a trilliion, the cost jumped from Obama's estimate by over a trillion, possibly more, the figure keeps adjusting higher, according to the CBO from its report on 1/5/2011.

Obama, Pelosi and Reid are liars. The American people are not stupid. They don't need another "report" shoved in their face to know they're getting it stuck to them and they're being lied to. . again. The only time I've ever heard Reid not lie is when he stated he did not have the votes in Congress to pass gun control legislation.

They want to pass immigration reform, then pass immigration reform. But don't treat us like we're stupid and tell us we're going to like it. Wake up. Your political parties think you're an idiot and you are allowing it.
