Monday Debate: Amnesty

The Democrats are clamoring for Congress to pass S. 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, or as I like to call it, the Amnesty Bill. Sponsored by Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the bill was written by Schumer and the Gang of Eight Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Jeff Flake (R-AZ).


The bill would essentially legalize all 11 million illegal aliens currently residing in the United States and make it easier for illegal aliens who have been deported but have family members residing in the United States to gain reentry. In addition, the bill would not first secure the border.

How do you think we should fix our “broken” immigration system?
Do you think our immigration system needs to be fixed?
Is there anything positive about this bill?
How would you propose we better secure our southern border?

Democrats seem to like comprehensive bills: this bill, the Affordable Care Act and the Justice for All bill. Democrats argue that our “broken” immigration system needs to be reformed. Democrats also thought that our health care system needed an overhaul and look at how that turned out.
