I agree with Sessions. Illegal aliens have driven a wedge into American society that shouldn't be handled with a pat on the head. Aliens who have entered the country illegally should never be allowed an opportunity for citizenship. Until they go home and enter like everyone else, they stay outside the law. No benefits beyond emergency care and let the states decide what to do with them. Congress has mismanaged this issue from the beginning and now they're throwing in the towel, again. This is a disgrace and a betrayal. If the Congress wants to do the right thing, it needs to secure the border first and start hammering the Mexican government for its many failings.

After the border is proven then appropriate reform should be considered. Again, there maybe problems with current immigration law but this 1500 page debacle is not a neat, clean, efficient, and effective way of dealing with it. There are no guarantees and too much of it looks like its unenforceable. The American people does better. Our security and our economy is at stake and Congress gives us sophomoric, easy answers, the same old krap it has offered for years. It's time for someone in Congress to get serious about protecting America from aliens walking across our borders. If genocide was happening or political repression was the norm in Mexico it would be different. But what were seeing is people crossing for convenience.

But, Democrats need to replace all of the voters they have lost through abortion. ACORN and SEIU aren't big enough to get the job done through voter fraud.

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,
