Not only that but if the Absconders return to their home country, they will be ineligible for this. So they have an incentive not to leave the US.
Just say NO to Amnesty!! Before its too late!!

I certainly hope that this threads remains active for at least 24 hours.
Posting at 11:35 pm PDT is not conducive to reaching a wide audience, and the little people with time on their hands, the "posting police", are alive and well...
This bill is a heinous legislative atrocity. Thank goodness for fine people like Senator Jeff Sessions, who stand for America.
I know it’s bad time to post but if not done now it won’t get done
This is from Session's website and also needs discussing.
Another flaw in the legislation prevents the benefits of merit-based immigration from taking full effect until 2016. Until then, chain migration into the U.S. will actually triple, compared to a disproportionately low increase in skill-based immigration. As a result, the merit-based system in the bill is only a shell of what it should have been.
More than half of South America and Latin America will be crowded in the U.S. by 2016. Our environment nor children have a chance for a decent life.
I’m so tired of hearing this. It was all over CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS and PBS all weekend long and was the only thing talked about on the Sunday morning shows.</S
Thank you, Sen. Sessions and his staff. Smartest people in the Senate.
Since the govt won’t, we have to. Gonna?
This amnesty must be stopped
From what I understand, Sessions will be on CSpan tomorrow. We need to call every number possible this week.
And then there’s this:
Immigration Bill Could Outlaw Gun Shops
Thanks, Dennis and to Senator Sessions for providing these. I didn’t like the immigration bill to start with, but the more I read, the angrier I get. And it takes a lot to get me angry.
I think we have a right to know why the Republican leadership is pushing this bill so hard. It seems to violate every conservative principle we stand for and debases American citizenship. If it is as simple as big business wants a flow of cheap labor, I can be in favor of increased legal immigration, but to allow people who cheated the system to get away scot-free and reward them with all the benefits of the legal is a travesty of justice.
I am really curious about the healthcare personnel as part of the bill mentioned lowering the barriers for employment. As things stand now the Mexicans can't pass our state boards like all the other countries have to such as India, Chili, Canada, etc. If they lower standards and go to universal healthcare, we are in a heap of trouble.
