Illegal Immigration To Be Debated Here it comes -- The big-money, open borders juggernaut
Get ready to see a lot of this stuff
Los Angeles Times -- January 31 Senate won't rush immigration bill, Harry Reid says Washington -- The Democratic-led Senate, in a bid to win support from Republicans, plans a full-fledged debate on immigration reform, a decision that means it could be most of the year before any bill reaches President Obama, who has urged Congress to act in a "timely fashion."
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday the bill would go through the traditional committee process and told senators he would schedule "whatever time you need" on the floor.
The move is in stark contrast to how the Senate handled the failed 2007 immigration bill, which was written behind closed doors, circumvented the Judiciary Committee and was rushed to a vote. That effort collapsed under strong opposition from Senate Republicans who felt blindsided. Washington Post -- January 31 Citizenship question roils both parties as immigration debate gets underway A key question is whether to require that certain conditions be met before illegal immigrants could be put on the path to citizenship --- and how the government would determine success.
The Senate group, which includes Rubio and top members of both parties, would require that the U.S.-Mexico border be found secure and that other strict enforcement measures be enacted before those here illegally could become citizens.

Americans had better come together on this as never before.
