    "I think the law should be very clear, we have the technology to do it. No employer should be allowed to hire anybody for a job without having first gotten verification from this national center that this person is eligible to vote .. eligible to work," Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) said. (source: WKRO-AM/Boston)

    Of course it's about votes. That's the same reason Bush wanted to do it, to make them all Republican voters.

    Unfortunately, there just are not enough people in Washington who give a royal shit about closing our borders.

    So why hasn't anyone done anything since except for Bush starting the fence?

    If Reagan did it for votes. How come they don't vote GOP?

    Good question for both parties. But don't kid yourself President Bush was pushing for Amnesty. What they won't tell you that they think we need the influx of citizens to help pay for the retiring baby-boomers. Because SS is a pay as you go scheme.......

    Can't open the link

    If the idea is to make them citizens to pay for SS, then why aren't the dems pushing for it also? They get old too.

    Why are the dems also against stopping them from coming in?


    Amnesty failed, and failed badly, so there is no reason to do it again.

    Try opening it in a new tab maybe?

    They(Dems and Reps) came very close in 2007 to passing Bushes amnesty bill.

    Amesty didn't fail. It was the second part of the deal, enforcement at the boarder and on the job that failed.

    Why would anyone want to secure the border?

    We make too much money off of Mexicans. As long as they work cheap and keep their mouths shut we will continue to look the other way
