    • On July 01, 2011, by bluezook - Question: how does our inept government plan on verifying whether or not an UNDOCUMENTED 30 year old has been in the country since they were 16? Also, the previous "last ever" amnesty was in 1986 so this bill overlaps the "last" amnesty. Why even have laws? This government disgusts me.

    • On June 29, 2011, by Sxeptomaniac - Cue the predictable "amnesty" cries, as if it were suddenly a dirty word. Nevermind that saying "it's illegal, end of story" does not remotely answer things. Just because something's illegal, doesn't mean the maximum sentence is appropriate.
