Once President Obama, Clinton or McCain is President of the United States (who ever is actually in the role), will start pushing Congress to start debate on the new version of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Put on your crystal ball hat and please tell us what do you think will be the final result.

I would love to see option number 2 come to pass but I know what will happen.
Amnesty and no real change.

I picked '2' due to the fact that our economy is imploding------most employers; if confronted with laying off an illegal vs. a US citizen/green card holder will cut the first one loose. Illegals, especially those with sketchy SSN's would not dare file a complaint with the state's labor board let alone attempt to collect unemployment.

My personal feeling is that any immigration reform will not be passed until our economy improves and according to some experts that may not be anytime soon. There would be too much outrage from struggling americans for amnesty to pass and our next president would veto anything that didnt include amnesty, so i expect things to stay status quo for awhile. One blessing of this is that states are starting to get off their butts by passing their own immigration laws and not waiting for the feds to do something.

This may be true but many State Legislatures have punted on the bill because they expect Obama to be President in 2009 and he is very much of a open borders person and will use his political capital to push through an amnesty plan.
