"Sen. Menendez Offers Mass Amnesty Bill in the Senate

Published:

-

"Overview

Often referred to as Comprehensive Immigration Reform, pro-amnesty groups seek to offer legal permanent residence to illegal aliens. Comprehensive Immigration Reform bills were introduced in Congress in both 2006 and 2007.

In 2006, separate versions were passed in the Senate and House, but an agreement was never reached in conference committee. In 2007, a version in the Senate proposed by Senators John McCain and Ted Kennedy with support from Pres. Bush failed to reach a cloture vote. The grassroots effort from NumbersUSA members was a major reason why the amnesty failed.

During the 2008 campaign, Pres. Obama offered support for amnesty, and with an overwhelming majority of supporters in the House and Senate, newer versions of the failed bills are likely to be introduced.

Thanks Konane
They just keep trying to get it passed. Have not seen that bit of information floated around this election cycle. First I have heard of this bill.
It is bloggers like you who keep the public informed.
Thanks

Thanks JAP! There are a handful of races where the winner will be sworn in immediately after election, not waiting until January. They're keeping this under wraps to ram through if they retain control after swearing in.

Thanks Sully! They don't give a hoot what we think so long as one world government comes into being via North American Union. Seems they've been working so diligently hoping to be appointed as part of the hierarchy when they finally tank us.
