SOOOOOO happy that immigration bill passed. :D now illegals have to get background checks (for the criminals, they get sent packin' :D ), learn english, etc. GOOD! legal and good immigrants=good. criminal immigrants=bad.

looks like all those protests failed. lol. or did they? is that what they wanted? or no? i'm sorta confused. o_O



Security

*Authorizes enhanced border security measures, including the addition of a 370-mile, triple-layer fence along the border.

*Authorizes President Bush's plan to send 6,000 National Guardsmen to the U.S.-Mexican border.

*Bars those convicted of felonies or three misdemeanors from becoming legal residents or citizens.

*Punishes employers who hire illegal immigrants with a fine up to $20,000 and three years in prison after an electronic verification system is established.

Guest workers
*Creates a guest-worker program that would allow workers to work in the country for three years and be eligible for a three-year extension. The number of temporary-worker visas would be limited to 200,000 per year.

Legalization

*Establishes a three-tiered path-to-citizenship program, which divides the 11 million to 12 million illegal workers in the United States into three groups:

Illegal immigrants here for more than five years could gain their citizenship after working for six years, learning English and paying a penalty and back taxes.

Illegal immigrants here from two to five years would have to return to an entry point and apply for a guest-worker program.

Workers here less than two years would have to return to their countries of origin.

Language

*Declares English the "national" language of the United States.

*Also declares English the "common and unifying" language of the United States.
