    WASHINGTON A bill introduced today in the U-S Senate would give illegal immigrants up to five years to leave -- before they could return and be in a guest worker program.

    The sponsors are Senators Jon Kyl of Arizona and John Cornyn of Texas.

    The bill faces a July 26th hearing before the Judiciary Committee.

    The plan would allow immigrant workers to enter the U-S for two years, followed by a one year break. They could repeat that pattern two more times.

    The legislation also increases penalties for employers of undocumented workers and authorizes ten-thousand new agents over five years to investigate employers hiring illegal workers

    Immigrants who leave the country within one year would not be fined when applying for re-entry. Those who wait longer to leave would be fined two-thousand dollars for each additional year.

    Just one piece of the illegal immigration puzzle. Now if they'd just close the damn borders, we'd have some progress.

    If we keep adding to our talent. I'm all for immigration, of the legal sort. Personally I think we should have higher quotas, especially from Eastern Europe. But that's me.

    You may not agree but you know its going to happen. Think about it, where is all the money and all the manpower going to come from to roundup all these people? Hell we can't even muster enough force for Iraq. This is just political gamesmanship. I say why not keep the illegals, give them citizenship and ship out all lazy slobs who are on welfare here. At least the illegals work and will add to the tax base.

    What is wrong with my proposition? Nothing.

    I don't have a problem with 'citizen force' provided the sanctions are in place for nut cases, though that's a chance the illegals take, whether they know it or not.

    Not all the illegals work, nor are law abiding, (I mean besides breaking the law just being here), that is wishful thinking.
