Previously we read a news item that showed the immigration bill was going to go something like this:
Criminal for more than 5 years you stay.
Criminal for more than 2 years you stay but we pretend you "went home."
Criminal less than 2 years we actually do what the laws says we are supposed to do now.
Clearly this is unworkable because it will be impossible to verify how long these criminals have been committing their crimes. They will lie for this just like they lie when they get a job, are stopped by the police, or say "I didn't know she was 14."
Second the government beuaracracy that would have to be set up to listen to these lies has not been established and would be an utter failure.
And last... IT'S AMNESTY!
So thankfully the genius architects of this bill in the senate have come up with a much simpler way of deciding which criminals they reward and which ones will simply continue to ignore the law.
If you are a criminal alien and you sign a pledge that you will vote for McCain then you stay, everyone else goes.
But even this plan has flaws, while illegal aliens were proven to vote in Washington's gubernatorial election, the one that resulted in 2 recounts and was decided by 42 votes, most are too busy selling drugs and raping young girls to vote.
