  10. 10. AMNESTY  Immigrants that come here LEGALLY are welcomed with open arms, but any person that, as their first act, commits a crime by entering our country ILLEGALLY should not be rewarded for it, because if they cannot respect the very first law of entering this country, how on earth do we expect them to respect ANY of our laws.
  11. 11. Why isn t it considered amnesty? People have to qualify, they have to pay a fine, there is no automatic path to citizenship... There is no guarantee that they will get their legal status...
  12. 12. Pre-condition for Plan  Employers should assure legal employees.  Clear Rules  Technology developed* In case of people trying to get around the system, they will risk being deported and not able to use the system again.

  15. 15. Democratic Presidential Debate Sunday, June 3rd  Democratic candidates for next years U.S. presidential election highlighted their differences on the war in Iraq and other issues in a televised debate Sunday evening in the northeastern state of New Hampshire.
  16. 16. ConclusionI think the best decision would be to proceed in passing the Bill legislation, even though it would take some time to be adjusted and secure the borders. I guess many will try to get around with the system, and get deported. In any other way, if they decide to deport the millions of illegals, I think within time they will come back, and deportation might even cause a big impact in economy. Give Time to Time
