John McCain and Company's Immigration Proposal: Yay or Nay
Some U.S. Senators from both parties have decided that they've figured out the immigration thing.
The proposal, as explained, has a bunch of points, with the main one being that 11 million or so illegal immigrants will have a pathway to citizenship.

-John McCain, Fellow Republicans, Scurry Like Rats To Embrace Immigration Reform

The current proposal's spread out over five pages of bullet points, and we'll give you some bullet points of those bullet points:
- "Securing our borders"
- Tons of ifs, ands, as well as buts
- A pathway to citizenship for millions.
- A lot of paperwork and waiting.
- If you're a DREAMer, it's easier. That's one of the many ifs.
- Something that's like E-Verify but isn't E-Verify.
- We got it: It's Reagan Amnesty (careful with the a-word) 2.0
Long story short, it's a concession that Nickel-Bag Joe-ing five illegals at a time ain't gonna fix the country's immigration situation, and it proposes granting a pathway to citizenship for 11 million-ish illegal immigrants.
Does that sound like a good idea to you?
