    What do you think of the new bipartisan immigration plan proposed by four GOPand four Demo

    Republican Senators Marco Rubio (Fla), John McCain and Jeff Flake (AZ) & Lindsey Graham (SC) and Demo Senators Schumer(NY), Richard Durbin (Ill), Robert Menedez (NJ) & Michael Bennet (Colo), have proposed reforms with a"path to citizenship "after payment of a fine & back taxes"  combined with new enforcement to prevent future illegal immigration. It would make it easier for those brought to the US as children to become citizens.
    Could it pass in the Senate? Would it have a chance in the more conservative House? What do you think?

    I believe the idea itself would be a step in the right direction, but the mention of a "fine & back taxes" combined with new enforcement will most likely kill this idea.
    As many of the illegals work strictly for cash, there would be no way to even calculate the back taxes owed.
    Enforcing illegal immigration laws would immediately be labeled as discrimination by many, so they would be opposed to any change at all.
    I would be in favor of a change like this, but then I am not in the shoes of those who would be most affected by the reform.
    It will be interesting to watch and see where this goes.

    Don't think immigration reform is going to help.  The way the economy's going, we're liable to join the 3rd world and people will be trying to get back into Mexico to make a living.  Personally I don't care if we let everyone who wants to come here in and give them citizenship if they can take the oath.  Our larger problems are not being caused by immigration, nor will they be solved by it.

      It will help many of the 11 million already here I think.

      If I thought for a moment that this legislation was to help the immigrants, I'd be all over it.  It's not.  If it was, the law would be simple.  It's not.
