I forgot to mention the cut-off date for amnesty in the Democrats’ new bill. The 1986 amnesty legalized those who’d lived here since 1982, which still was kind of short but at least conveyed the idea that it was for people who had put down some roots here. The cut-off date in new amnesty bill? Today — Dec. 15, 2009. So, if you sneak in tomorrow you wouldn’t get an amnesty (at least not this amnesty), but if you came last Friday, you’re all set. I mean, really, are they serious? Obviously not.
