Why we need Immigration reform

I hope that before those on the right jump to conclusions and denounce this proposal as "amnesty" they will learn what is in it. This bill brings people out of the shadows and lets them pay a penalty for being in this country illegally. It is a long difficult process to get from a temporary work permit to a green card to citizenship under this proposal. Illegals could not be eligible for Obamacare or other public welfare benefits under this proposal. There are triggers to ensure the border is secure before the program advances. This is much better than the status quo. We are not going to round up the 10 to 20 million who are here and send them all home. That is just not going to happen. This bill needs to be fully debated and this or something very similar needs to pass.
