It's certainly time for an overhaul and I hope it will happen soon.

I've some experience with immigration systems around the world, I'm not certain these are improvements, I care because my wife is a foreigner.

I'm rather unimpressed by this so-called reform. If you have managed to save a lot of money, and can waste that money on fines than you might get a green card. This is not reform, it's just another form of punishment.

Kit interprets these ideas exactly as I do - these people have been abused by American corporations getting away with lots of corrupt hiring at less than livable wages - that goes for lots of agricultural businesses - that everybody has known for decades! And yet some of these corporations are demanding that there be fines imposed??????? - Let's get things straight here - fine the god damned places that hired people at their pleasure for profit - and find another means of allowing certain workers to find citizenship without a ridiculous fee and "fine" on their abuse! Once again we face corporate shenanigans that only an oligarchy can produce - we're fast approaching fascism!

They've needed to do something about this for years! But I have my doubts to, about how poor people will really fare in this and once again in the end paying far too much while corporations who knew that these people weren't U.S. citizens and really exploited them so that they could get richer, and yet they won't have to pay any fines!

This isn't immigration reform, this is just another cheap labor give-away to big ag and the rest of corporate amerika!

Personal choice with shared irresponsibility on each side of the issue ... for me a draw.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. Just seems like this immigration legislation is unending and bound to do very little other than continue to harm the most innocent and needy, while continuing to serve the 1%.
