Parts of Failed Senate Immigration Bill Being Revisited
Posted by Joshua Price on August 3, 2007
As I suspected, the twice-failed Senate attempts at “comprehensive” immigration reform are re-surfacing in parts.
According to a New York Times article posted below:
Another bill, also with bipartisan support, would give a path to citizenship to high school graduates who are illegal immigrants if they complete two years of college or military service.
Now, on the surface, those of us who would be opposed to parts of this proposal–chiefly the requirement of completing just two-years of college as the determining factor of citizenship–would be branded as insensitive, anti-globalist, anti-agriculture, and xenophobic. Afterall, these are just good, hard-working students that are here to help our economy and institutions of higher learning by taking courses that American students simply won’t take. Oh. Wait. I’m getting the liberal arguments mixed up. I mean we can’t forget how the liberals and globalists wanted to grant amnesty to 12-20 million illegals because many of them are doing jobs that American workers won’t do.
This is something that needs to be monitored in September when the Senate gets back. The immigration fight is far from over!
