    Schumer says, voters should be ready to accept a law legalizing illegal aliens & rewrites immigration rules. :cuckoo: Let's not forget efforts to pass a broad legalization bill faltered in 2006 and 2007 as voters flooded Congress with calls. We can do that again!!! :clap2:

    Schumer, pushes immigration reform in 2009
    Democrat touts secure border

    May 21, 2009

    Chuck Schumer (NY) top Democratic senator on immigration said that the nation's borders are secure enough to begin working on a legalization bill for current illegal immigrants. Now, he said, voters should be ready to accept a law that legalizes illegal immigrants and rewrites immigration rules. Mr. Schumer initally opposed the Secure Fence Act in 2006. He voted first to block the bill through a filibuster.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions, Ala., (Rep), said with 700,000 people still being arrested annually, "that is not a lawful border." He also said his fights to get a vote on fencing and other security measures belies Mr. Schumer's claim that voters can now trust that Congress understands the security issue. He said progress has been made in security, but rather than showing that the job is done, it underscores the prospects for success if the government takes other steps on enforcement. "We are not there yet," he said. The Obama administration has changed the focus of interior enforcement from detaining illegal workers to the employers who hire them. Obama will host talks in June about immigration in hope of beginning the debate in earnest later this year.
