Of course, there's a little bit of a catch:
Craig Nelsen, ProjectUSA director, wants the National Arbitration Forum to create a panel of impartial lawyers to evaluate immigration legislation Cannon supports and decide whether it fits the definition of amnesty...
Cannon spokeswoman Meghan Riding called the Project USA proposition a "clever bit of theatrics." She said Cannon's bills are available on the Internet, "where folks can read them, contact us if they have questions and make their own decisions."
For most people, his refusal will serve as pretty good proof that it is indeed "amnesty." Whether his plan meets the legal definition (?) of amnesty doesn't really matter. It will serve as a huge incentive to immigrate here illegally.
