Immigration Question

I will take everybody’s word for it that this is a bad bill. One question, though — could there ever have been a good bill? I don’t mean a bill that instantly teleports every illegal to the country of their choice using Star Trek technology, which is, I gather, what resides in the dreams and visions of many on the restrictionist side. I mean an actual piece of legislation with any kind of chance on earth to pass Congress and be signed by the president.
