Who could possibly be against this?on January 29, 2013 @ 5:42 am (Updated: 8:08 am - 1/29/13 )
A group of senators is proposing immigration reform - real comprehensive immigration reform.
There's a framework with stuff that appeals to conservatives.
"We have to have a real enforcement mechanism to insure we're never here again in the future," said Senator Marco Rubio.
And stuff that appeals to liberals.
"People who are here living in the shadows would get a legal right to stay here and work," said Senator Charles Schumer.
Senators were so determined to appeal to Hispanic voters - they started acting as their own interpreters.
First, Senator Marco Rubio started making his proposals in in Spanish. And after hearing Rubio, of course Democrat Bob Menendez decided maybe one more question needed answering - in Spanish. Even John McCain translated his trademark straight talk, simply saying "vamonos."
But there are clouds moving in on this rainbow because the bottom line of the compromise, is that most of the 11 million undocumented immigrants will get to stay here legally while they wait for green cards, which prompted a question for Senator McCain on FOX.
"Won't we have a flood of illegal immigrants coming across the border trying to beat the clock? Saying 'I have to get there, because if I just get there I'll be able to stay'?"
And ABC's Nightline featured a pro-wrestler the Mexican themed Lucha Libre Tour. RJ Brewer whose real name is John Stagikas is a star among Hispanic audiences. But you ask him about immigration, "I refuse to be an immigrant and a minority in my own country - enough is enough."
Get ready America - it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
