The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Sunday that any attempt at comprehensive immigration legislation cannot offer a "special pathway to citizenship" for those in the United States illegally.

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
I continue to protest the bill sent from the Senate that militarizes the border, giving corporations a cash cow while only further impeding the pathway to citizenship. This is a bad bill. Living in Tucson, I can say that we don't need 42,000 Border Patrol every 500 feet. We already have unmanned drones and other technology costing us in the billions. These are my tax dollars which could be better spend protecting Social Security, food stamps, education.....

I'm not certain why they shouldn't be able to apply fro (if you want to call it the back of the line, but essentially that is how you join any line). I would hope that they come up with an immigration system, not a solution to the those already here. And I'm not certain why we don't have an Indefinite Leave visa that doesn't lead to citizenship (and before anyone gets mad, that is what I am on in the UK). And, at the minimal, get rid of any non immigration amendments to the senate's bill.

*****The House answer would not be "a special pathway to citizenship where people who are here unlawfully get something that people who have worked for decades to immigrate lawfully do not have," he said.


*****That approach, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said, would bring electoral doom for Republicans looking to take back the White House after the 2016 elections. Republicans, she advised, should follow the Senate lead "if they ever want to win a presidential race."

So you think Nancy Pelosi! But then again what do you know!? You do not know or understand squat!

There are those Republican's who support this bill that come election time they are going to find themselves in the unemployment line! Mc Cain is one of them along with Rubio and a bunch more! The only reason the Democrats want this passed is so they have all kinds of Democratic voters from here on out..nothing more! To give people who are here illegally citizenship while those who have gone through the proper channels and have waited in line.. some for YEARS and still do not have US citizenship is a travesty to our system of justice in this country! Outright pathetic!!

Leave it to the republicans to make a mess of this. Vote the republicans out of office in every state at every opportunity.

Enforce current laws and secure our borders BEFORE any new legislation.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Mr. Elliott and the video. I honestly don't think we will see any meaningful immigration legislation until after 2014. Read, viewed and noted.
