The House Floor debate over #DreamAndPromiseNow has begun! 2 hours of debate time, equally split between supporters and opponents of #HR6.

.@sariedinger: CAP (@pwolgin 's employer) is funded by Big Biz. The anti-American #DREAMAct is a dream for Big Biz: it'd add 2 million new legal workers to the labor supply, depressing wages. It'd also keep some Americans out of college. And, it'd braindrain the third world.

@pwolgin: that is, how often are those who were illegal aliens but return home & apply legally found out?

From @24aheaddotcom
@pwolgin: non-political question for you. If someone's here illegally but there's no record of it & they return home, is applying a problem?
