How long do you think it will be before Obama passes some sort of amnesty bill?

It seems as though he has gotten everything else he wanted and he has only been in office for about 5 months. How long before an amnesty bill gets passed?

  • Thanks for the clarification.

    I think it will be up for consideration before summer is out. But I don't think that it will make one lick of difference either way, whether it passes or not....we're doing an ineffective job of enforcing immigration law as it is.

  • Dunno, Carpy. Latinos tend to vote conservatively on social issues. They were the second largest block who approved Prop 8 in CA, topped only by African Americans.

  • First the bill needs to be approved by House of Representatives then by Senate .It is not that easy . President sign the laws,Congress makes the laws.

  • Amnesty and Path to citizenship with penalties are to different things. Look it up. And for the resident genius who thinks "amnesty" is a way to pull in the Latino(a) vote, sorry but the Pugs lost that when they started blaming immigrants for every problem in this country.
