IMMIGRATION OVERHAUL: Senate Bill Aims to Boost Security, Legalize Millions
So much for border security first. So much for no amnesty. So much for doing anything that will help. Sad sad sad.
Check it out:
Millions of illegal immigrants would be put on a pathway to legal status and eventually have the chance to apply for citizenship in exchange for paying fines and taxes, under the terms of the immigration overhaul being unveiled this week.
According to an outline of the bill released to Fox News late Monday night, the massive legalization program would be twinned with a multibillion-dollar effort to boost border security.
It would require the Homeland Security Department to create and launch plans for border security and fencing before illegal immigrants can enter a provisional status. This could happen as early as six months after enactment of the bill.
