Committee voted Monday to allow illegal immigrants who get legal status to begin collecting tax-welfare payments, as the panel spent a fourth day working through amendments to the massive immigration bill and party-line splits began to emerge.

In one major change, the committee voted 17-1 to make a third drunken-driving conviction a deportable offense for the newly legalized immigrants if at least one of those offenses occurs after they are approved for legal status.

What the

"The committee avoided what likely would have been a bitter fight over guns and whether those on the government’s terrorist watch list should be allowed to buy firearms when Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Rhode Island Democrat, withdrew his amendment.
“Evidently we think it’s OK for people on the terrorist watch list to buy a gun,” Mr. Whitehouse said."

Why would anyone on a terrorist watch list be given citizenship?

15,000,000 new redistribution of funds recipients on the way!

What I don't understand are those who say no one should leave America but stay and fight, yet when people cross into our country illegally in order to get what they can, that same advise isn't offered.

"America is gone if this thing passes"

America is already gone.

Do the best that you can, and try to set a good example for others to follow.

Oh, and my reasoning is this: If Americans are unjustly jailed, and nobody bothers to arrest [in handcuffs] the cronies who make up their own laws, break the Law of the Land and exstinguish our Rights.. well, now you see.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

I'll explain further

The reason I said America is gone if this thing passes is because with that amount of foreigners being legalized with the stroke of a pen, foreigners who have not one shred of American spirit within them - for if they did they would NOT break the law to enter or have a baby on US soil believing it automatically gives them a 'right' to live here - then the chance - no matter how slight it may be right now - of expounding our fundamental principles to wake up the sleeping American masses, will never have a chance.
This massive 'legalize illegals' charade is TPTB's best chance of forever changing the culture of America because the illegals do not come from countries where Liberty means anything. If they did, they would be in their countries fighting for the liberties of their people. But they don't care about their own people, or even their country; they only care about what they can get from other people who happen to live in America. They have no allegiance to any principles, just a selfish, "I'm gonna take what I can get" attitude. Where are their morals? If I want to move to a pretty 'chocolate box' cottage in the country in the UK, you bet I would go through the proper channels and not sneak in on some ship or through the tube from France. We all know those 'newbies' will then vote for those candidates who promise and provide the most Marxist policies of redistribution of wealth. And those politicians pushing this thing are really just fighting for those 'new votes'. They could care less about the burden to society many of those illegals will be.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
