    Durbin: Immigration Bill Will Not Allow Violent Criminals Path To Citizenship

    Durbin: Immigration Bill Will Not Allow Violent Criminals Path To Citizenship

    Reporting Bob Roberts

    CHICAGO (CBS) – Immigration was on the minds of leaders from the Polish-American and Ukranian-American communities as they met with U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin on Chicago’s northwest side Saturday.

    Durbin said, during the meeting at the Ukranian Cultural Center, at 2247 W. Chicago. Av., that no comprehensive immigration bill will allow violent, threatening or dangerous criminals a path to citizenship. But immigration attorney Robert Goszek said he and clients needed to know what constitutes violent, and warned that it could be misinterpreted.

    “With the case of domestic violence or a nasty divorce going on, these are the things that could really prevent the system in any bill from working to its full extent,” Goszek said.

    Durbin indicated that he understood.

    Another attorney brought up the case of a man, in the United States illegally since age 4, who is 50, has served prison time but has had a clean record for 12 years. Durbin said no law can anticipate every possibility, but said the bill being crafted will not permit deportation for traffic offenses, such as speeding, or for failing to have a driver’s license, which was all but impossible for the undocumented to obtain until recently but even now is not granted in many states.

    Immigration rights activists have charged that federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have picked up and deported many people for such low-level offenses.

    Durbin is one of the “Gang of Eight” in the U.S. Senate charged with finding a compromise on a comprehensive immigration bill.

    He said that the path will not be easy, especially for those who have managed to hide their residency well. He said it was likely that those seeking to apply for citizenship under the new law will be required to present some kind of paper trail.

    Ukranian-American Federal Credit Union CEO Bohan Watral said the credit union can help establish such a history now, while immigration attorney Michael Klysch said some undocumented immigrants may be able to turn to Facebook histories to establish that they have been in the United States.

    Little Dickie Durbin should never be taken seriously. This is the guy who insists that a "pathway to citizenship" (a.k.a. amnesty) must be included in any proposals for so-called "immigration reform." Why do we tolerate Dickie, Baroqueie and their ilk making demands about amnesty (i.e. any legal status) a pre-condition for the government to do one of its most basic jobs: making our borders secure and preserve the inviolability of citizenship?

    Why can't the few adults who are still in the Congress insist on independent legislation that requires the border to be effectively secured and tightly controlled? Why does such a basic and obvious law have to be connected to anything else? and thorough enforce of laws against knowingly hireing illegal aliens. Pass these laws in the House and let the Democrats explain to the American people why they oppose securing the border and effective policing of those who knowingly hire illegal aliens.

    We know why Dickie wants amnesty -- so the Democrats can legally stuff the ballot box and become the dominant party in perpetuity. Why should any patriotic adult pay attention to little Dickie?

    Break out the hip waders Durbin talking! The government is incapable of enforcing the laws so doing background checks will not happen. Promise anything to get what you want the mantra of the Democratic Party. JMO
