(Reuters) - A bipartisan group of senators who have agreed on an immigration reform plan said on Monday they hope to move quickly with legislation giving 11 million illegal immigrants a chance to eventually become American citizens.
Seems people forgot the old saying to good to be true.
I’d like to propose a “waiting period” for legislation. No bill should be voted on without hearings, debate and a final text that’s available online for at least a week. (A month would be better. How many bills really couldn’t wait a month?) And if the bill is advertised as addressing a “tragedy” or named after a dead child, this period should double. After all, people want waiting periods for guns. Yet, statistically, the percentage of guns involved in crimes is much lower than the percentage of politicians involved in crimes.

first of all you do realize that 11 million is just a guestimate?
second that 11 Million is about the population of Los Angeles California?
Our Congress are about to give a minimum of the population of the city of Los angels citizenship without back ground checks and without proper procedures to criminals who already committed a crime in crossing illegally into our country.
Do you realize what this will do to our nations economy?
Do you realize that this means that Congress and the President are guilty of harboring and assisting Illegal Aliens? That they are guilty of felony crimes if they pass this bill?
