I have been trying to find the 20 amendments that the Republicans
wanted to be voted on in before Cloture on that "Comprehensive"
immigration bill that, once again promises to blend a new "pathway to
citizenship" and a "guest worker" program with securing our borders
and a program to sanction employers who continue to hire and exploit
illegal aliens.

I found the vote talley for those who voted for and against Cloture
but I cannot find the final 20 amendments that the Republicans wanted votes on. 

I know that one of them had to do with "excepting" from the pathway to
citizenship - illegal aliens who have committed felonies in our
country.  As I examine those Senators who voted for cloture on this
bill without "excepting out" criminals and felons - I just cannot
understand why they would do his "in our best interests?"

Didn't we do this "comprehensive" amnesty/border contro/employee
sanction thing  under Reagan?  Seems like illegal aliens got
citizenship but we just never got around to the funding and
enforcement to secure our borders and the controls on those employers
who like the cheap labor provided by illegal aliens.

Could it be that after the public flurry died down - our trusty
legislators just wanted to keep the corporate good will and their
sponsorship of those fundraisers that keep incumbants in office?

Are our legislators "Puffing their stuff" and doing this same thing
again and are we so stupid as to silently watch this happen?  What
exactly is wrong with securing our borders by legislation, funding and
action FIRST?  Then, when we control the flow into our country - begin
to deal humanely with the 11 million who are here, develop our "guest
worker program from them" and integrate them into our society (minus
those who are felons and those who actively seek to
hurt us from within).  

Otherwise - I suspect that another "comprehensive" immigration bill
would go the same way as the last one and - we will be back in another
5 years with 25 million more illegal aliens.

I would love to read any comments on this - pro or con.

My question is answered by pointing me to where I can find the 20
proposed amendments and then - telling me how you did it!!!!

I don't think so.  It is my understanding that many proposed
amendments were boiled down to a final 20 that the Republicans (kyle
or kile of Arizona was talking about on the news) insisted be voted on
before they voted for cloture.  It is these 20 amendments that I would
like to read.
