20 Loopholes in the Senate Amnesty Bill

About the so-called Comprehensive Immigration Bill.

It still lives, from those who want to grant amnesty to 12-20 million illegal aliens.

From Senator Sessions (Alabama):

There is no way that anyone is going to convince me that this bill is good for the Black Community. No way.

I'm still waiting for anyone to answer my simple question:

What are the benefits FOR the Black Community FROM illegal immigration?

It's a simple question. Just name me 3 positive things that come to the community from illegal immigration.

The Senate will have to rework a lot of this Bill before I could really get behind it.

They have to get more serious about punishing companies who hire and exploit illegal aliens, and they have to get serious about securing our borders (the north included).

I also don't like the idea of hardcore criminals being allowed in.

The current Bill won't work.
If the idea behind the Bill is to get illegal aliens to come out of the shadows... I don't think it will meet its goal. The Senate needs to revisit the issue of the fine... and lower it... or allow illegal immigrants to pay over time. If they don't fix this part of the Bill... the legislation may only cause illegal aliens to go deeper into the shadows rather than come out.

If there are no serious sanctions against employers...and no serious effort to secure the border...and fix the student visa system .... then this Bill is a waste of time.
