    Hispanic Caucus New Immigration Reform Proposal

    New Immigration Reform Proposal Being Prepared

    Would make illegal immigrants legal residents, supporters say it is 'not amnesty'
    By Jim Forsyth
    Friday, February 29, 2008
    The Congressional Hispanic Caucus says it is prepared to introduce a new immigration reform bill later this year which will confront Congress with the tricky issue of legal residency for 12 million undocumented workers in the middle of an election season, 1200 WOAI news reports.



    U.S. Representative Joe Baca (D-California), the First Vice President of the CHC, revealed the measure today as he attended a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute in San Antonio.



    'We will be coming out specifically with the legislature later on," Baca said. "It will not be comprehensive in nature, but it would include the 12 t0 14 million people who are here in the United States, it will address those individuals working in agriculture, and it will address the DREAM Act," Baca said.



    "It will involve visas, but it won't be a path towards amnesty, it will not be amnesty, it will not be an opportunity, but they will have to be required to be in the United States, have been working, prove they've been working in the United States."



    Baca declined to reveal any more information, saying he 'wasn’t ready' to provide the details of the bill and 'didn't want to be pushed' by reporters.



    The DREAM Act, is a very controversial measure which was defeated in the U.S. Senate last summer, which would provide educational benefits to the children of illegal immigrants. U.S. Representative Charles Gonzalez (D-Texas), a member of the Caucus, says that will be a key part of any measure that is floated.



    "We do have children of the undocumented workers, do we not educate them?" Gonzalez asked. "They're not going anywhere, I'll tell you that right now."



    The Caucus members declined to say when the new immigration reform measure might be introduced.

    Someone needs to tell him to quit the 12-14 million figure, it's more like 20-30 million!

    Unbelievable when you stop and think about it.

    Heeere we go again!

    "It will involve visas, but it won't be a path towards amnesty, it will not be amnesty, it will not be an opportunity, but they will have to be required to be in the United States, have been working, prove they've been working in the United States."
    What ID will they use to prove that, hmmm? Their real names (which they hide from the law) or the fake names they use to get jobs and freebies?



    'We will be coming out specifically with the legislature later on," Baca said. "It will not be comprehensive in nature, but it would include the 12 t0 14 million people who are here in the United States, it will address those individuals working in agriculture, and it will address the DREAM Act," Baca said.
    What happens to the 12 million and first or the 14th milloin and first illegal in line? This idiot expects us to believe they will honor a cap on the number? So he's saying 12-14 million get to stay and 14 million one and up will leave?

    "We do have children of the undocumented workers, do we not educate them?" Gonzalez asked. "They're not going anywhere, I'll tell you that right now."
    We already educated them in K-12. We're NOT subsidizing them for college too! They can work at jobs Americans won't do, they don't need a college education for that do they?


    How about HELL NO!!!

    If illegals' status is changed from illegal to legal and they get to stay for five years (which we all know means forever), this IS amnesty and the answer remains NO !

    And of course "later this year" means after the presidential election (if they don't try to push this sooner), so whoever wins will be pressured to push this mass amnesty scheme.

    I agree, be ready.
