Senate immigration amnesty framework 2013 - 01/28/13

... four Democrats (Charles Schumer, Dick Durbin, Bob Menendez, and Michael Bennet). Summary There's nothing new in their plan: it's simply a slight variant the same old amnesty scam. It's a massive legalization program that has huge downsides and that would do great harm to the U.S. See comprehensive immigration reform for some of those downsides. One of the selling points is a "commission" that...

YouTube Town Hall: bogus debates between those on basically the same side (DREAM Act, Durbin, Johanns) - 08/17/11

Harry Reid: "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform"; vile Durbin confused about citizenship - 04/11/10

... at the event in Las Vegas and Dick Durbin at the one in Chicago. At the one in Vegas, Reid said (link): "We're going to do immigration reform just like we did health care reform."

It isn't difficult to imagine several paper tigers who...
