Legalizing 10.8 Million Immigrants in a Depression: Because Obama Cares

The basis of a bill would include a path toward citizenship for the 10.8 million people living in the U.S. illegally. Citizenship would not be granted lightly, the White House said. Undocumented workers would need to register, pay taxes and pay a penalty for violating the law. Failure to comply might result in deportation. Nick Shapiro, a White House spokesman, said the president\'s support for an immigration bill, which would also include improved border security, was "unwavering." Participants in the White House gathering also pointed to an immigration rally set for March 21 in Washington as a way to spotlight the issue and build needed momentum.

Regardless of any political b.s. he spews now, in order to get re-elected, McCain is sure to vote FOR this; it is much what he pushed before.     And tis likely that other b.s. artist, Col. Foghorn-Leghorn Hayworth, will vote for it too.

Boy that figure sure changes with the wind - 10.8 million... 20 million...  12 million...

Just more incentive for immigrants to come here illegally.  Another bill nobody wants being rammed down our throats.
