DETAILS STARTING TO EMERGE REGARDING CIR BILL

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

Senators Schumer and Graham presented a three page outline of their reform proposal when they met earlier this week. The Los Angeles Times gave a few hints in an article that appeared yesterday:



Although details of their blueprint were not released, Graham said the elements included tougher border security, a program to admit temporary immigrant workers and a biometric Social Security card that would prevent people here illegally from getting jobs.

Graham also said the proposal included "a rational plan to deal with the millions of illegal immigrants already in the United States." He did not elaborate on what the plan would be. But in a recent interview, he suggested that onerous measures were unrealistic.

"We're not going to mass-deport people and put them in jail, nor should
we," Graham said. "But we need a system so they don't get an advantage
over others for citizenship."

    Looks promising.

    The most impt. thing is that people should just accept the fact that mass deportation and getting each and single one is impractical and really impossible. The more you do this, the more they hide and go to the shadows. People should go back to the lessons of Vietnam war and how OBL keeps hiding on those caves in the Afghan/Pakistani borders. And we are talking about millions of illegals here doing exactly what the Vietnamese and OBL is doing. So could someone tell me how long would it take for mass deporting everyone would last and how much expensive such a never-ending endeavor be?

    What the recent recession should have exposed to the public is that if there are no jobs, they actually voluntarily go back home themselves. The biometric/tamper-proof ID should make getting a job for an illegal impossible to get employed legally. Even the very idea of it being in place would be deterrent to even think of crossing over. Same with those "visiting" the US from overseas and plans to overstay. They won't even think about it anymore because it won't be worth it anymore or the risk getting too high to even consider. Then of course it's also an anti-terrorism tool against the growing home-grown terrorists.

    Who is going to pay for a biometric ID card? Will the government give these documents away? Just to renew a valid green card costs more than $300, and many permanent residents don't have enough money to spare to renew their cards when they expire. As a US citizen, I chose to spend money to obtain a passport. Why should I have to spend additional money to get another document to prove that I have the right to work and be here. Why isn't my passport sufficient?

    I want comprehensive immigration reform, but not if the price of it is ending up in a country where the first question we are asked when we get a job, look for a place to live, or seek government help is "Papers, please."

    Sounds like a great Idea, enforce immigration at place of work, schools, apartment rental and guess what you will not have to worry about building that wall that never comes up.

    @Grace

    So, if you don't have to pay a fee upfront for the biometric ID it's ok for you then?

    Although I am not 100% sure but the Gov't will probably not ask for an upfront fee from each individual for it to be able to effectively implement it.

    Ok, one down.
