Comprehensively Awful

June 2007
National Review;6/11/2007, Vol. 59 Issue 10, p26
The article expresses criticism over a "comprehensive immigration reform" bill that the U.S. Senate has proposed in 2007. The article asserts that the bill grants illegal immigrants amnesty. According to the U.S. Senate and U.S. President George W. Bush the bill does not grant amnesty because it requires illegal aliens to pay a fine before being granted citizenship. It is suggested in the article that the immigration bill is not tough enough on illegal aliens.
