It in fact does.

Yes, it does. It's a permanent amnesty bill. We won't have the illegal immigration issue anymore because
almost any illegal will be able to obtain a legal status. The southern border will stay open.
It's going to be a mess on many levels. The GOP will become irrelevant pretty quickly. You won't recognize your country in a few years from now.

I don't think there is any plan to reduce legal immigration and to keep those out who are waiting to come here legally. It is just that when you add in legal immigrants along with the illegal ones how are we going to accommodate all of these people without it harming our own citizens? It's tough enough in today's economy and then add illegals to the mix also.

Does it have provisions that let people who have broken our laws and crashed the border (or overstayed their visas) stay in the country, while keeping out the people who have obeyed our laws, applied for legal visas, and are waiting patiently in their home countries for permission to enter?

If so, then it doesn't much matter what else is in the bill. It's toast.

I just can't see creating a new group of permanent residents, whose only qualification is that they broke U.S. law.

Sounds like the LAST group we'd want to accept as permanent residents, not the first.
That's already going on. Obama is encouraging illegals to come here and ignore our laws, he's not deporting them, deportations have been put on hold. Those who respect our laws are being put way to the back of the line behind all those who are breaking the laws.

There is in that employers are not being expected to provide work visas and bring people in legally. Why bother with the expense of providing work visas when it's very very easy to break the laws and just bring in illegals, there are absolutely no consequences for employers who hire illegals over legally immigrated.

Just like the H2A visa, it has no caps, but why bother when the federal government will not enforce the laws on this?
