Shouldn't the implementation of the immigration reform bill be slower?
The debate of the immigration reform bill 2013 is rather fast. We all know the good side; however, it is very important to understand the bad side of the bill. The Media is reporting half the truth. The American public deserves to know the whole truth and weigh the pros and cons before supporting the bill.
Have you been following up on this issue. The debate is going on since years.
Native americans feel why should aliens get the same rights while government knows that for low paid harmful jobs like Agriculture they need the aliens who are already employed there.
Would you be happy if you see an individual from a lower strata comes and settles in your house without your permission, even if he is serving as a servant - Once AGAIN taking away a job that could go to one of your own family members?
The reforms have come in after too much debate and too many permutations and combinations. The reforms as well as STRICT Immigration Rules and surveillance is need of the hour.
The laws are not made to be broken, they are made to keep you safe. Respect laws and value lawmakers. If you need the entire story you can read it soon at www.canadaupdates.com in a single piece as such all updates are already there in details in various news stories.
Why do you think being PROACTIVE is not right?
Your wording suggests there is an obvious good side that most everyone agrees with, yet you don't identify that good side. Is it the increased border protection or the pathway to citizenship (or something else)? You also imply a bad side, but again what is it? I haven't seen the media ignoring a particular aspect of the issue, so I have no idea how to respond to your question. I personally, don't like any of the bill. I favor open borders and amnesty (with caveats).
As for the broader question, I'm not sure it matters. Americans tend to be astonishingly uninformed and we live in a country saturated with entertainment organizations masquerading as news agencies. An informed public debate is never going to happen.
Junkseller, I do identify with the good side; however, it is more important to understand the negative consequences of all that may happen. The bill's not just about the undocumented 11 million who will finally get a home here; however, it can have far reaching effects in the future. It is important to know the other side of the story. There is not a particular issue that distresses me. (Although, there are some.) The media is flooding with positive stories almost everywhere. However, the negative effects are not discussed much. I do appreciate what the government is doing for the immigrants, but, it is not ideal to get swept off by the popular wave and pass something as big as this. Having said that, I do not mean the bill should not be passed; however, I only intend to say that more information from both sides should be circulated in the public before it is passed. It is about holding a balanced point of view.

vins - no one is taking another person's job. It's a free market. The more productive efficient worker gets the job. Secondly, an undocumented immigrant is not a servant, s/he is a human being who has come to this country in search of a better place to live. Had it been your house, you could have thrown them away, but it's a country and fortunately, there are others who feel contrary to that. "Lower Strata" - what do you mean? - you sound like a casteist. And, yes, I have been following the issue whether it's '86, '93,2000, 2005 or 2013.

What now? House republicans said they will do their own reform. But, there is division about the issue, specially after some republicans voted to passed it in the Senate.

Once again power is Obama's number 1 priority. Homeland security, border security, economic security doesn't matter to Obama. All that matters is that he secure the latino vote because let's face it if he has to run on his dismal record he doesn't stand a chance! His motives are as...

A broken system. Why isn't the government doing more? Whether people agree or disagree with Immigration Reform there needs to be a compassionate solution. It's a human rights issue...and it's a crisis.http://www.thepetitionsite.com/843/643/ … of-summer/

Suddenly, the idea hopelessly is setting-in on the American people. Americans are becoming more and more passive when it comes to constructive oversight over our political leaders. How can taxpayers now cope with a constant reminder of a $17 trillion deficit , war on demand by the political elite...
