The bill is an insult to American workers. As Milton Friedman work visas are corporate welfare.

It only took the House 90 days to craft the bill and pass it.

meanwhile a bill to protect legal workers by requiring companies to use e-verify so only legal workers are hired sits gathering dust along with a bill to end Anchor babies which adds 40K new babies a month as citizens whose parents are mostly illegal aliens.

Where is the outrage?

Congress did nothing when Obama issued a directive usurping Congressional Authority by granting amnesty by fiat to 16-30 years.

If Congress does not challenge him on it nothing will stop him for doing the same for all illegal aliens in the country!

Republicans think they can pass an immigration law and win over Hispanics......as republicans.

They say they are rligious and conservative......perhaps the ones that are still in their home countries are......but the ones here drop out of school at about a 50% rate, nearly 50% of their births are to unwed mothers, and 50% of Hispanic immigrants in the country are on welfare.

So long as we keep open floodgates for the sea of humanity invading us the country will sink ever lower in the standard of living......it is already happening.
