Republican Jeff Sessions has already come out against the framework, specifically how the border enforcement "trigger" would work, saying "how the trigger works and the way it would be effected in some ways appears weaker than the one in 2007." I realize that I am a simple-minded, conservative with 2 degrees in engineering, but can someone please explain the concept of a "border enforcement 'trigger'" to me? Shouldn't our borders be enforced? Period, end of story, no more. We are a sovereign nation with a border that should be secured from people entering illegally or from invading military forces. Is there a reason that this simple concept is so difficult for people like Marco Rubio?

If you present yourself as simple minded, why should we listen to your contention? Please, have a little pride, or at least contrition. By the way, what kind of engineering?

Obama's plan to spread the wealth has worked so well that he has decided to take his plan international.

I fear that Rubio was put up on a pedastal by conservatives for all the wrong reasons and now he's doing this because he thinks he can get away with it. I wonder if he feels that he can betray conservatives and they will simply say "the alternative is worse" and vote for him anyways.

It is time to do something about people like this...and unfortunately Americans don't seem to have the testicular fortitude to do so.

I would have thought the campaigns of both McCain and Romney would put an end to the "Have to vote for me because there is no alternative" attitude. Some people just don't get it and never will.
Amnesty by any other name is still amnesty.
There is no such thing as a law abiding illegal alien. (or immigrant or whatever label you use)

The Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform plan coming out of the U.S. Senate is beginning to take shape. Due to yesterday's events in Boston, it won't be formally announced in a press conference, but members from the Gang will discuss the immigration reform package with President Obama at the White House today.

The headlines from the legislation would include a "path to citizenship" for more than 11 million illegal immigrants and increased funding for border security. The complete "path to citizenship" would take thirteen years, but a mere six months after the bill would be enacted,
