Immigration to be taken up in October. “We’re going to vote on a bill to legalize people who are undocumented, ” says Ryan
Paul Ryan finally let us peek into House plans for dealing with illegal immigration. The info comes from the Journal Sentinel newspaper. He was in Wisconsin speaking to a few hundred people of mostly Hispanic origin and I don’t want to give up the author’s (Bill Glauber) whole story but here are some things you’ll find if you go over there:
“Tentatively, October, we’re going to vote on these bills,” Ryan said. “We’re going to vote on a border security bill, we’re going to vote on an interior enforcement bill, like the workplace verification and the visa tracking. We’re going to vote on a legal immigration bill for visas, for agricultural workers, for skilled workers.”
Ryan also said: “We’re going to vote on a bill to legalize people who are undocumented.”
Under such a plan, those who are here illegally would have to wait a minimum of 15 years to gain citizenship, two years longer than the Senate version of immigration reform. But they would be eligible to receive a “probationary visa” Ryan said.
O.K., so now we know what we’re up against, what we’re fighting, and how much time we have left to fight amnesty. Again, I don’t want to paste up the paper’s entire story but please go over there if your seriously concerned about this/these bills
