Thank God for people like Joan Rivers.  America and the rest of the idiotic

'politically correct' world has long ago gone off the deep end.  Sure this may be considered 'in poor taste' but she IS Jewish and if she can make jokes about this (and bring awareness to the horror of Nazi atrocities) who cares?  If you don't like what she says, don't listen.  The wonder of tech is that there is still an 'off switch' or just change the channel.  Get over it liberal and politically correct idiots!

Carlos Batara's curator insight, February 17, 2013 8:03 PM

Oh my, what a difference being a national figure makes.  Now, Rubio has forecasting powers.

 

All joking aside, this is a serious matter.  It clearly shows whatever unity has been claimed to exist on immigration reform issues, it's just an illusion. Party politics still controls how folks will vote on the details, once details are released.

 

On the other hand, Obama's eight year wait is rather suspicious from an immigrant advocate's perspective.  Does the eight-year wait mean immigrants will need to sign up as part of a national ID registration process?  If so, is the risk worth taking?  Eight years from now, we'll be talking about who will be the next president in 2024.  Even if the president is being forthright, there are no guarantees how the data will be used later.

 

Moreover, even if the idea is solid with no hidden traps today, does that mean family members must wait eight years to finally file a petition and get in line to start the countdown of the immigration process?  Or does it mean they can file directly for permanent residency?
