I think it needs to be passed. It is a path to citizenship, and I think it's a good one.

• Illegal immigrants have been convicted of voter fraud, skipped previous deportation hearings or those who falsified their citizenship status could be granted amnesty.
So we are rewarding criminal behavior. This is like giving the car to the carjacker once they are caught. Stupid idea.

• Those granted amnesty will not be required to complete any formal education in order to gain citizenship. Instead, those granted a stay must finish at least two years of higher education, although completion is not mandatory.
Oh, that's tough. So we will require them to finish two years of higher education? And who foots the bill for that? I can give you a hint, it won't be the criminal.

THIS is their priority? THIS!!!!! Not taking care of the Bush tax cuts so the economy doesn't tank even further...effecting millions of legal citizens...lets make sure the criminals can stay.
I think they can handle more then one thing at a time. I hope they get it all done in the lame duck session, they have always said tax cuts were priority. this is so children brought here can gain a path, not criminals.

• Anyone 35 and under will be eligible for permanent residency status
Uh, last time I checked anyone over 18 isn't considered a child. And if you consider the age of consent (therefore being legally capable of deciding you are old enough to create another being with someone over the age of 18 without fear of prosecution for statutory rape), I think that those under the age of 16 should be considered a 'child'. 35 years old = not a child.
